Abstract(s)This study describes some possibilities of setting up an adaptive control method for an electromagnetically actuated presser-foot in an industrial high-speed sewing machine. The control of fabrics feeding in sewing machines is difficult not only because of the complexity of relations between the intervening variables (material properties, sewing speed), but also because in many operations a varying number of material plies are crossed. This implies that the reference for the controller has to be adapted dynamically. Several methods, using PID and/or fuzzy logic control, have been tried and are described in this paper. A preliminary sewing test is able to provide data to tune the controller variables. With these adaptation techniques, the machine would be able to automatically adapt its feeding system according to the material being sewn.
