All embroidery machines are computer controlled and specifically engineered for embroidery.
Embroidery machines have a hooping or framing system that holds the framed area of fabric taut under the sewing needle and moves it automatically to create a design from a pre-programmed digital embroidery pattern.
A multi-needle machine may consist of multiple sewing heads, each of which can sew the same design onto a separate garment concurrently. Such a machine might have 20 or more heads, each consisting of 15 or more needles. A head is usually capable of producing many special fabric effects, including satin stitch embroidery, chain stitch embroidery, sequins, appliqué, and cutwork.

With heat transfer printing, this is done as a lithographic flex heat transfer, with the primary difference being the image is screen printed on the release paper, in reverse.
Nylon heat transfer uses a specially-formulated screen printing ink designed to adhere to a design that is digitally printed in reverse on a special release paper using a specialised ink.
The printed image is then placed against the fabric and subjected to high temperature and pressure.
After the substrate has cooled, the release paper is peeled away and the image will have been transferred to the fabric.
Nylon heat transfer uses a specially-formulated screen printing ink designed to adhere to nylon, polyester and cotton.

Screen printing is a technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a fabric.
A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh with ink. This causes the ink to wet the fabric and be pulled out of the mesh as the screen springs back after the blade has passed.
One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.
There are various terms used for what is essentially the same technique. Traditionally the process was called screen printing or silkscreen printing because silk was used in the process.
