Intelligent Sewing Machines Will influence The garment Industry

In recent years, my country’s garment industry has faced more and more difficulties in sustainable development in the face of unfavorable factors such as transformation and upgrading and international trade barriers. As one of the most related industries in the garment industry, the sewing equipment industry has been affected unprecedentedly. The times are changing, the industry is also changing, and there is a war of change about automation and intelligence for the future of sewing equipment.

The sewing machine industry got the most affected beacause it is most closely related to the textile industry in the industrial chain . The clothing industry is difficult to continue, and the sewing machine manufacturing industry as a clothing machinery provider is even more difficult. It is not successful to reduce the overhead, and sewing companies have to spare no effort to find life-saving straws in reducing costs. And more factories choose to close the factories and change to other careers, or even run away. The sewing industry is in full swing, and this is not a microcosm of the survival status of traditional export-oriented enterprises?

The world population is growing, and the population growth is the demand for clothing. There is no industry in the setting sun, only enterprises that cannot see the rising sun. The global clothing industry is accelerating the transfer. Transformation means that new automatic sewing machines gradually replace traditional sewing machines. Transformation means that enterprises need to upgrade sewing machines. The downstream transformation is the market of the sewing machine industry.

Sewing machine automation achieves a new leap in the industry

In recent years, in order to adapt to the diversification of clothing fabric properties, the clothing industry has carried out a series of automated transformations on sewing machines. And especially to the endless emergence of “new synthetic fiber” fabrics,

The automatic sewing machine is easy to operate. The staff only needs to put the fabric in place, press the button, and the machine automatically controls the fabric. After sewing and trimming, the sewn products are automatically folded; the automatic machine is equipped with 2 kinds of sewing machines, which can automatically complete 2 projects; One operator can operate 2 to 3 machines at the same time; the sewing machine automatically picks up the fabric. The sewing machine can sense the presence or absence of fabric, automatically place and complete the sewn product.

In terms of its development, sewing machines are mostly concentrated in the application of electromechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic integration, the use of oil-free or micro-oil lubrication systems, the application of direct-drive motors, the application of computer multi-program control methods, and the design and application of personalized industrial modeling, etc. And so on, these all push the development of sewing machine to the peak. For my country’s sewing machinery manufacturers, many have launched automatic bag opening machines, oil-free direct-drive sewing machines, double-needle corner integrated feed sewing machines, single-needle side-cut lock-stitch sewing machines, electronically controlled high-speed bar tacking machines, and small square head series stretchers,sewing machines, etc. have achieved a new leap in sewing machines.

Sewing machine is an indispensable tool for sewing garments, like automatic sewing machine for shirts, automatic bag sewing machine, automatic pocket sewing machine, automatic shoe sewing machine, etc. Different garment fabrics have different sewing properties. In addition to sewing machines and their mechanisms, the sewing properties of fabrics are also related to fabric properties, sewing threads, sewing machine needles, and sewing process parameters (such as presser feet). pressure, thread tension, stitch density, feed dog height, etc.).

The sewing needle is one of the main sewing machine parts. The shape of the needle tip, the shape of the needle bar and the surface treatment of the needle have an absolute influence on the appearance of the seam. Since the needle is in direct contact with the fabric during the sewing process, if the needle is used improperly, the following problems will occur: skipping, thread breakage, seam wrinkling, drawing thread, thick needle eye, high-speed friction causing the needle body to heat up, resulting in melted stitches and yarn. It is very important to fully understand the shape, specification, material, hardness, elasticity and use of sewing machine needles, and scientifically and rationally select machine needles for different clothing styles, different fabrics and different sewing parts.

At present, the high-speed sewing machine used for sewing processing can reach a speed of 5000 rpm, and the speed of the needle penetrating the fabric can reach 4 m/s. During such a high-speed sewing process, the severe friction between the needle and the sewing section will cause severe friction between the needle and the sewing machine. As a result, the needle temperature of the machine needle is too high, and in severe cases, a melt hole will be formed in the chemical fiber fabric or the chemical fiber suture will be melted, and the resistance of the needle hole passing through the thread will increase, which will worsen the looping condition of the upper thread and cause skipped stitches or broken threads.

Intelligent sewing machines will show their talents

The intelligent development of sewing machines lies in sewing. At present, both at home and abroad are concentrating on the development of an integrated environment system for sew ability. The seam ability integrated environment system is composed of three interconnected online systems, namely the seam ability prediction system, the intelligent sewing system and the safety quality system. efficiency, thereby reducing operator skill requirements.

In the intelligent sewing system, the sewing machine can automatically set sewing parameters through sensors and drives to optimize sewing quality and improve production efficiency, and reduce the skill requirements of operators. At present, the sewing machine is also equipped with a sewing damage system and a laser risk detection seam wrinkling system; the sewing damage system measures the penetration force of the machine needle to detect the damage in the sewing process; the laser detection seam wrinkling system measures the wrinkling along the sewing line Deformation to ensure the quality of sewing quality, when these parameters meet the requirements, artificial intelligence technology will complete the optimization of sewing parameters, including presser foot pressure, sewing thread tension, stitch density and sewing thread number.

With the development of network technology and the advancement of technology, many electronic products have achieved network intelligence, and sewing machines are no exception. The development of networked and intelligent sewing machines is an inevitable trend. With the further transformation, upgrading and development of the clothing industry, the automation and intelligence of sewing equipment will become a major trend.
