At the beginning stands the idea of a embroidery machine design, mostly in the form of a company logo together with a slogan. If the idea only exists on paper, the design must be digitized into computer readable data. This takes place e.g. through reading in with a scanner. Then if the motif is available as a file, it must be converted into vector graphics. In this case, individual pixels are no more determining for the design but the lines, which separate a color field. One recognizes vector graphics also by the fact that one is able to enlarge them infinitely without quality loss, because the dividing lines always remain sharp.
However, how does such an embroidery style get onto caps, pullovers or pockets?
In the beginning stands the idea of a design, mainly in the form of a business logo along with a slogan. If the plan only exists on paper, the style must be digitized into computer understandable data. This happens through reading, with a scanner. After that if the motif is accessible like a file, it must be transformed into vector graphics. In cases like this, individual pixels are no longer determining for your design but the lines, which differentiates a color field. You can recognize vector graphics also by the fact that an individual is able to expand them infinitely without having quality loss, because the separating lines always remain sharp.
These kinds of vector graphics tend to be loaded into the punch software. The semantics of the word is to be traced back to the actual methods before the digital embroidery program design where the instructions were also pricked by hand in a punch card made of hard paper.
The puncher on the software program decisively decides the quality of the finished stitch content material. Here there are dozens of variables such as stitch density, stitch direction, stitch length, stitch pattern and the precedence of stitch work correctly on the motif, the embroidery machine and the fabrics to be embroidered. Hence a cap needs a different embroidery program than the usual leather jacket, even if it concerns one and the exact same embroidery motif.
Without having reasons there are businesses that have professional one and only in the creation of the actual embroidery motifs.
Then when the embroidery program is prepared, it is transmitted either through network, direct connection or even floppy disk to the embroidery machine.
Again also within the embroidery machine there are various parameters which can improve the embroidery result or make it worse. The most crucial ones here are above as well as under thread tension as well as embroidery speed.
Then the actual conversion of the software into the fabric embroidery is only schedule. The embroidery machine is produced, in principle, just like a regular house stitching machine with many parts, e. g. the under thread guidance looks very the same.
The essential difference is the quantity of needles, which actually reaches from 6 up to 18 instantly changing needles and usable colors in one motif.
Then when the motif is actually designed, a quick change of the embroidery piece can be done, making the embroidery very interesting especially for bigger works orders placed. Larger embroidery machines are also called multi head machines, here i. e. up to 24 embroideries are done at the same time. This increases the economic productivity and therefore makes the price per item more attractive.
With the use of the completed product or service there are hardly any limitations. Hence, work clothes are embroidered with delight. Also garments that need chlorine laundry, for example doctor’s smocks can be completely improved with unique stitching cotton.
