Since 1983 P & F Equipment Co. built quality hooping equipment for the embroidery industry and holds the original patent on the P&F Framing Press. (sometimes called a hooper) With over 30 years of experience and our customer feedback, we have built The Worlds' Finest Embroidery Hooping Equipment. Our frame press is foot operated so this eliminates all hand hooping and the physical stress and carpel tunnel syndrome associated with hand hooping. Our press can work with any brand hoop including but not limited to the following brand embroidery machines. (Tajima, Melco, Barudan, SWF, Mistergram, Happy, and Brother). We also make all the attachments fit the aftermarket style of hoops as well. (Allied Gridlock, Durkee, Hooptech, Rainbow, etc.) Our framing press allows you to hoop consistently and accurately every time helping in eliminating the rejects from the hand hooping mistakes. The press can be used on shirts, jackets, sweatshirt, caps, panels, blankets, bags, sleeves, and the list can go on. If you hoop it by hand then our press can take the work & stress out of it. We also offer a cap press that works with the EMS Hooptech cap frames to eliminate the hand stretching of finished caps. Every industry has its problems; hand hooping is the major problem in the embroidery industry, regardless if you are a commercial or home embroidery shop. From single head to multi head shops we have a press to fit your needs. So click on the products button above and see what we can do for you!
