The HOOP TECH INTERCHANGEABLE TUBULAR CLAMPING SYSTEM "( ICTCS)"
is revolutionizing the idea of "HOOP-LESS" embroidery.
The clamping action of the ICTCS allows embroidery on many otherwise "un-hoop-able" items
The “ICTCS Interchangeable Tubular Clamping System. The original clamping system with changeable window sizes.
All of the ICTCS Clamps use a spring loaded clamping chassis to hold interchangeable upper and lower clamping windows. These windows clamp the fabric and backing between the upper and lower windows and hold the fabric in position during sewing. The ICTCS chassis/window assembly attaches to the embroidery machine using the same tubular arms that support regular plastic embroidery hoops. Adapter arm styles are available for nearly all major industrial embroidery machine manufacturers and machine types. If you are currently using plastic hoops, then chances are that we have an ICTCS clamp that fits your machine *.
Each size ICTCS Clamping System (1-2-3) has a number of window sizes available that are exclusive to each size clamp. These window sets, (upper & lower) are easily and quickly changed without any tools. Loosening a single knob releases the bottom window from the chassis base, and the top window is released from the clamp top pins by gently spreading the support arms. The changeover takes less that a minute.
The ICTCS-1 has 6 available window sizes. 3 rectangular windows and 3 windows designed for sewing on the sides and back of caps. The largest window for the ICTCS-1 is 4.5 x 4.5”.
The ICTCS-2 has 7 available window sizes. 6 rectangular/square and 1 round, (that can also be used to sew the back of caps). The largest window for the ICTCS-2 is 7.5 x 6.0”
* The ICTCS-3 has a single window size of 13“ x 9”. Due to its large size the ICTCS-3 Clamp unlike the ICTCS-1 & 2 is a drive rail mounted clamp and cannot be attached using tubular arms. It is attached directly to the machine drive bar. .
No Tools Required
The ICTCS is simply the easiest way to embroider - bags - CD cases - work jackets - leather - canvas - quilted goods - computer bags - back of caps
SLIM LINE 1 & 2 CLAMPING SYSTEMS
Rail mounted Clamps with window sizes ranging from 2” round up to 12”X 9”. For embroidering on everything from baby clothes to luggage.
The SLIM LINE Clamping Systems are the lowest profile embroidery clamps on the market. The patented low profile design is only 1” high so it fits easily under the needle bar throughout the entire range of machine movements. The flat spring steel clamping arms maintain pressure on fabric and backing through a wide range of fabrics and thicknesses.
There are two Clamping Chassis sizes available for the SLIM LINE Series of embroidery clamps, each with a set of available windows to fit the two different chassis sizes. The SLIM LINE clamps mount to the drive bar of your embroidery machine using the same mounting holes that mount the tubular arms for your plastic hoops. Mounting adapters specially designed for your machine type and size are attached to the chassis and then the assembly attaches to your machine. Hoop Tech manufactures mounting adapters for all major industrial size machines as well as smaller machines such as Brother PR & Baby Lock machines.
All of the SLIM LINE Clamps use a spring loaded clamping chassis to hold interchangeable upper and lower clamping windows. The windows clamp the fabric and backing between the upper and lower window frames and hold the fabric in position during sewing.
The SLIM LINE chassis/window assembly attaches to the embroidery machine on the drive bar using mounting adapters. Adapter styles are available for nearly all major industrial embroidery machine manufacturers and machine types.
Low profile design will not run into the needle bar.
