The more experienced the digitizer is, the better will be the final outcome. The machine operation algorithm has its technicalities that need experienced hands and attention to detail.
In this article, we will a deep dive into what goes behind the scenes in the process of machine embroidery. We will also talk about how the machine embroidery helps in expanding the embroidery digitizing business.
To make it simple, we will divide the process into different stages so it is easy to grasp the technical terms. The profession of embroidery has been practised since ages. It was done by hand and the process was known as hand embroidery.
Now, modern machinery has turned the tables. The digitizing companies the modern method known as “embroidery for machine”. The trend has been in there in the industries for nearly half a decade.

We’ve covered the importance of machines for embroidery. It’s time to take a step into the technical side.
Let’s get started!
Every industrial process starts with basic tools and has a planned process that needs to be implied.
Machine embroidery process is no different.
There are two essential components of machine embroidery.
The computer-aided machine embroidery program that is designed to read the instructions we give to and convert the artwork into a suitable format.
The embroidery machine that has all the necessary tools and is equipped with the state of the art technology.
The industrial embroidery machines can further be divided into two groups:
Special embroidery machine
Universal embroidery machine
As the name suggests, special embroidery machines are designed in such a way that they can operate on materials that are hard for embroidery.
The most commonly used automatic embroidery machine is Schiffli. With this amazing machine, you can do both cuts through the material and process the cut with embroidery.
It is highly recommended to use this machine when you are dealing with light and thin fabric. There appeared a new version of this machine known as an automatic no-thread embroidery machine. The machine has a set of 24 needles that works with the special auxiliary material.
Let’s talk about the universal embroidery machine. It has four main parts: case, column, head, and frame holder. The case consists of a pole and a cantilevered arm and is fixed on a column.
Another type of machine that is worth mentioning is the multi-head automatic embroidery machine.
No matter what machine you choose, the basic functions are the same for all; that is to make embroidery artwork.
The speed of embroidery can be determined by the quantity of the stitches per minute. It can be adjusted automatically during the process.
The maximum speed that is observed is approximately 1300-1400 stitches per minute. The normal speed of new machines is usually between 700-900 stitches.
The size of the frame is expressed using the length and width of the frame in millimetres. The common correlations between the length and width 500*400, 400*350 and some others.
The number of working heads in modern embroidery machines are in between 2-4.
Needle quantity is generally referred to as the number of needles in one head. The run number of thread colours at one run in the embroidery process defines it. Generally, modern machines have 1 to 12 needles and the most common ones have 9 needles.
These are some of the most basic yet important technical components for machine embroidery. Some other notable indexes are noise and vibration level.
