EMBROIDERY CNC: first completed work

Long time, long journey, started in 2012, a project semi-finished after six years was completed, and it took not more than one week to be operative: CNC Embroidery is now fully working!

Speed is still quite limited by torque of little Nema 17 stepper motor at high revolution speed of the flywheel. More or less actually the maximum speed is 200 stitches per minute, while I believe that with a bigger motor (Nema 23 with 430 oz in) I could reach a speed of 800 stitches per minute.




A short video of the machine running with sewing machine internals:




Cat size is approximately 3x2 cm (1.2" by 0.8")


Following some work in progress experiment:

Most of the work was related to thread tension requirements. The old machine had a lot of trouble to maintain the correct thread tension. After some disassembly and reassembly, I noted a spring was missing from the thread tensioning system, so a lot of knots and not well pulled sewing thread on the back. 

The (still not 100%) completed machine:





Frame tension setup to accomodate different kind of fabric








Frame tension spring


Entire setup




You will need one of these plastic foot to obtain a good sewing result

Little motor, do your job!
