With JUKI SAI, embroidery enthusiast and professionals alike will enjoy an 8 needle operation that allows for multi-color creations with fewer thread changes. With the addition of 800 stitches per minute, your designs will quickly become a reality! This model offers high-quality finishing and durability with the production power of an industrial embroidery machine condensed into a compact body.
SAI is a compact embroidery machine packed with Tajima's technology and know-how. We developed it for people considering getting an embroidery machine who want to:
- Make beautiful embroidery just like the professionals!
- Embroider fast and steadily!
- Have a compact machine that can be used in a small shop!
- Have an easy-to-use machine!
- Get a hard working embroidery machine for a small investment!
Tajima has long excelled in the development of techniques and devices that satisfy professional requirements. However, we have had little experience of developing compact products or products where appearance is important, so everything was new for us. After three years, and after repeated trial and error experiments, SAI has finally been completed. This machine is one that we can present to the world with confidence.

Two types of essential embroidery frames are included in the package as standard: Full-size and small. They support production of everything from towels and T-shirts to small accessories.
Wonderfully bold, yet subtle designs
SAI's distinguishing silhouette was created by Toshiyuki Kita, the designer of the first-generation AQUOS that kicked off the history of LCD TVs. He came up with a color and design which fit effortlessly into various environments. For instance, if you run the machine in a location where it is visible from outside your shop, it gives the shop a sense of movement and inspires interest in passers-by.
What's more, we added little twists here and there, such as arranging the thread cones vertically, to achieve the surprisingly compact form. In city centers, in particular, a shop is a valuable space not an inch of which can be wasted. It is a compact machine designed with consideration for your space as well.
Delicate yet solid - mechanism of trust
Tajima has a history of manufacturing embroidery machines for professional use. In developing SAI, we prioritized making sure it had the durability to earn customers' confidence, and making sure it can be used for many years.
The basic mechanism follows the same engineering ideas as Tajima's flagship group of products, which have been successful around the world. For example, we adopted highly durable parts in motors and timing belts so that they endure long periods of use with ease. Besides this, we incorporated functionality that only a specialized manufacturer could, such as a tension indicator, laser marker, anti-dust finishing at the part-level and so on.
