TME-HC Series

{{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}}

In 1990 Tajima released the TME-HC series embroidery machine. The TME-HC did not come with a floppy disk drive and only came with ports for external readers such as an external paper tape reader or Floppy Drive. The machine came in options of 4,6, 12, 15 or 20 heads. The machine only had manually removable table tops (nothing automatic). The machine was only available as 6 or 9 needles.

1990-1992

In 1990 Tajima released their first TME-HC model. The original HC models had mechanical thread break detectors that ran off a mechanical cam system. When the machine made a color change, the lob of the cam would physically close the thread break detection circuit. The HC models from this era had pretension knobs apart from the heads located in front of the mechanical thread break detection system.

1993-1994

The TME-HC machines released after 1992 came with standard DU-10 power boxes for the X and Y card. Each head was equipped with individual thread break boards and sensors, replacing the original HC design. The machines from this era looked much more like their predecessor, the TME-DC. The last TME-HC machine was produced in 1994.
