Overview

The PR680W, for when embroidery means business 

When you’ve got your sights on going from home hobbyist to small business owner, choose the easy-to-use Entrepreneur W PR680W 6-Needle Embroidery machine to get you there.  

With individually customisable six-needles and industrial acceleration the PR680W can handle different-sized projects with ease. Reaching up to 1,000 stitches per minute in seven seconds projects will be completed faster, with minimal noise. 

Give yourself space to create on the generous 200 x 300 mm work area and easily work on the large 10.1'' built-in high-definition LCD display. View your designs in crisp, vivid colour and really see the detail with the zoom function which goes up 200%. Easily adjust your design by rotating in 0.1-degree, 1-degree, 10-degree, or 90-degree increments.  

There’s a perfect pattern for every perfect order with the 673 built-in embroidery designs (including monogram and buttonhole styles) and 50 built-in lettering fonts. Stitch out the built-in designs as they are, or express your creativity with the design editing features.  

Customise fonts by adjusting the spacing, colour shuffling, or changing the thread density to improve the look of stitching. Add an instant pattern outline with the appliqué feature and reduce editing time with colour grouping. 

Save time and mistakes with the built-in stitch simulator, automatic colour stitch sequence, basting stitch outline feature and smart stitch management. The PR680W will also automatically resume the embroidery design at the exact stitch when the machine either stopped or lost power.  

With the largest crosshair pointer on the market, you can see exactly where your needles will drop, ensuring perfect pattern placement every time. Easily position jobs faster and more accurately. Nine points can be set: centre, four corners and four middles. 

We’ve upgraded the upper thread tension dials and expanded the thread tension range to give you ultimate control in fine tension settings. You’ll see less puckering on lighter fabrics like satin and organza. 

Customise your business workflow with the new key optimisation and shortcut keys. Added administrator and operator locks adds a new level of security and safety. 

Wirelessly connected you stay in control, wherever you are. Keep track of your embroidery with the My Stitch Monitor app from your mobile device. Send designs wirelessly from your PC to the PR680W with Design Database Transfer (Windows desktop devices only). You can also get machine updates automatically. And with Brother’s PE-Design 11 software (additional purchase required), you can link as many as 10 machines without a cable.  

And don’t worry, with 24 pre-installed tutorial videos – covering everything from basic operations to embroidery functions - you and your staff can learn as you go. You’ll be experts in no time! 

Next-level versatility, next-level speed, and next-level editing – all in an easy-to-use package. Turn any challenge into an opportunity and see how the Entrepreneur W PR680W can take your passion, and business, to the next level.
