Abstract : This document presents Volume I of the report of research into automated shirt collar manufacturing. It provides the executive review and summary of the project, as detailed in Volumes II and III of this report. The research objectives were to evaluate the dynamic performance of the sewing system using analysis and experimental methods, and propose improvements to the system design which would improve the high speed path tracking ability of the sewing head. The two axis machine was designed to carry the moving sewing head on orthogonal belt driven carriages, supported using a structural box beam frame. The machine was configured to provide a variable X axis stroke length to handle a variety of garment sizes. Most CNC stitchers used in the apparel industry do not have this advantage.
