4. Input pattern with Disk or U-disk
User can upload the patterns in various formats into the memory via the U-disk or the
external USB Floppy driver. This product is able to read the patterns in formats of Tajima
binary system, Tajima ternary system, Barudan FDR system (including binary system, ternary
system and Z system) and ZSK system.
5. Output pattern with Disk or U-disk
The patterns in memory can be downloaded to the Floppy Disk and the U-disk. This
product uses the Tajima binary system as the output format. The highlight of it is to use
internet to transmit pattern (Some patterns in other format is unable to be transmit directly.)
6. Repetition Embroidery
The machine can increase embroidery productivity by repetition embroidery. And it can
do embroidery directly in the way of usual repetition, but in the way of partial repetition, the
computer must first compile the ready-for-embroidery design to one normal design and the
machine then embroider the compiled normal design.
7. Cyclic Embroidery
The machine also can increase embroidery productivity by preset cyclic embroidery, by
which the machine automatically starts another same embroidery when one embroidery is
finished.

A new design can be formed by combining several normal designs at different size ratio,
rotation angle, figure direction and relative distance, which is called combined design and has a
extension name of PAR. It can be embroidered in one time.
9. Compiling Design
A. Compiling the ready-for-embroider design
After selecting a normal design and presetting the parameters (such as size ration, rotation
angle, figure direction, repetition), the computer can compile the ready-for-embroider design to
a new normal design.
B. Compiling the combined design

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

Chapter1 General Descriptions

Also, one combined design can be compiled to a new normal design.


10. Editing the Normal Design
A normal design can be edit stitch by stitch (or by several amounts of continuous stitches)
in full screen.
11. Patching Embroidering
This function can set a patch code after the color code or stop code, and when the machine
embroiders the patch code, it will halt and move frame out for patching. After stick a patch,
user would pull the operation bar to let the frame move back and continue embroidering.
12. Adjusting the Brake
For various machines, this function can make the machines stop correctly, which means
that the main shaft stops at 100 degree.
13. Save and store the origin point of design
This function can save and store the start embroidering point of each design, instead of
repeating moving frame manually to find the design origin when selecting the same design.
14. Mechanical maintaining and testing
This function is to easily judge the malfunctions when maintaining and testing, which
consists of computer testing, encoder testing, main shaft speed testing, machine parts testing
and the main shaft stops at any position, etc.
15. Some and store the embroidery parameters
This function is to combine the design with selected embroidery parameters such as color
sequence, design direction, rotation angle and repetition, etc. to reduce the times of inputting
parameters when embroider the design without changing the parameters.
16. The software version of the BECS-316/366 can be upgraded by use USB disk. See
Appendix I for detailed operating rules.

Preparation before Embroidering

Setting the contents below should be finished or confirmed before embroidering in


embroidery preparation status. Such as: (1) automatic color-change or manual color-change,
which is to change color automatically when there is color-change code during embroidering or
to change color manually after machine stops. (2) automatic start or manual start, which is to
start automatically or manually after automatic color-change, and if it is automatic
color-change, the color line should be set. (3) besides, it is necessary to set figure direction( see
Chapter 6), the rotation angle of figure, size ratio and number of repeating embroidery.( see
Chapter 12).
3-4 Select a Design for Embroidery and Confirm to Embroider the Design
1. Descriptions of Saving and Restoring Designs Origin Point
(1) The meaning of saving and restoring designs origin point
That means save the origin point of a design so that leave you away from repositioning
when embroidering the same designs (there may be other design to embroider among them).
(2) The precondition of saving and restoring designs origin point
The function can be realized until the machines zero point (or frame zero point) is set and
is available (the setting method is shown in Section 12-4 ).
(3) The main points must be explained and noticed.
Point 1: when selecting design, there will be a prompt NO ZERO POINT, CANNOT
SAVE ORIGIN if you have not set the machines zero point, then, please set, and the function
can be realized (see section 12-4 to know how to set the machines zero point.)
Point 2: when selecting design, if there is a * behind the design number (that means the
design has been saved), and if the current position is not accordant with the position been saved,
then there will be a prompt: PRESS [HOME] TO RESTORE ORIGIN, and the designs
origin point can be recovered. There isnt the prompt in other case.
Point 3: we suggest you do as the following sequence if you use the function of saving
and restoring the designs origin point: first, select one design, then, move the frame to find the
designs origin point, and at last, confirm to embroider, save and store the designs origin point
according to the prompt.
Point 4: the designs origin point that has been found by moving the frame after
embroidering confirmation will not be saved and stored.
Point 5: If the designs origin point has been saved and stored, it can be helpful to the
18

power resume function. When power off and the frame has been moved, and when the designs
origin point is available (if not available, set the machines zero point again and ensure that it is
same as before), release embroidery confirmation status and select the same design and recover
the designs origin point, then confirm to embroider, and do high-speed idling to the stop point,
finally continue embroidering.
2. Explanations about saving and storing embroidery parameters.
When confirming to embroider a design, the machine can save and store the design
parameters for later use. The parameters are: design direction, angle of rotation, X scale, Y
scale, priority mode, repetition mode, repetition times, frequency of X repetition, frequency of
Y repetition, X repetition distance, Y repetition distance and color-change sequence (can
store/recover the first 100 color numbers).
If the design parameters of a design have been saved, then when selecting the same design,
it can recover the design parameters automatically.
This function is very applicable when embroidering the same design repetitiously without
changing the design parameters, so that it can reduce the times of inputting parameters and
reduce the operation mistakes.

In the process of embroidery, the main shaft speed of the embroidery machine will change
by computer according to the stitch length of design. The low speed is intended for long stitch
embroidery, whereas high speed for short stitch. However, users can set the limit speed, what is
called SETTING LIMIT SPEED. The highest embroidery speed can increase or decrease
within the limit speed.
The limit speed ranges from 250 rpm to 1000 rpm. User can select the limit speed and do
not need superabundance. For example: in normal using is 850rpm, then set in 850rpm.

Angle of rotation (0 ~ 89)


Use digital key, "

" and "

" keys to input data. This angle is an angle at which a

design rotating counterclockwise according to the selected design direction.


X magnification (50% ~ 200%)
Use digital key, "

" and "

magnification of a design.
Repetition sequence (X priority or Y priority)
Use "

", "

" and "

" keys to perform the inputting.

X priority presents the

repetitive embroidery line by line in transverse direction during repetition.

Y priority presents

the repetitive embroidery row by row in longitudinal direction.


Repetition mode
Use "

", "

" and "

" keys to perform the inputting. Usual repetition refers to the

embroidering operation that after a complete design having been embroidered, the same design
will be embroidered in the next position, i.e. the repetitive embroidery is performed by a
complete design after another. Partial repetition refers to the embroidering operation that
after a design having been embroidered with stitches of one color, the embroidery will be
continued in the corresponding position of the next design with the same color stitches until
this color repetition is completed, and then the embroidering operation will repeat with another
color stitches until the repetitive embroidery is made with all color-stitches, i.e. the completion
of the repetition of a complete design is based on the repetition of each part.
For partial repetition, you must compile the pre-embroidering design into a normal design,
and embroider the normal design. (See Chapter 17)
Frequency of X repetition (1 ~ 99)
Use digital key, "

" and "

" keys to input data. The frequency of X repetition presents

the number of transversal repetition, i.e. the frequency of repetitive embroidery in a line.
Frequency of Y repetition (1 ~ 99)
Use digital key, "

52

" and "

" keys to input data. The frequency of Y repetition presents

the number of longitudinal repetition, i.e. the frequency of repetitive embroidery in a row.
X repetition distance (unit: mm)
Use digital key, "

", "

" and "

the distance between the starting points of two adjacent designs in transverse direction during
repetition (accuracy: 0.1mm).
Y repetition distance (unit: mm)
Use digital key, "

", "

" and "

" keys to input data. Y repetition distance presents

the distance between the starting points of two adjacent designs in longitudinal direction during
repetition (accuracy: 0.1mm).
Priority modes (magnification priority or rotation priority)
Use "

Edit of the Design in Memory

Edit of the Design in Memory

Adopting the most convenient, direct-viewing and full-screen editing mode, the function
of editing design in memory has more advantages, such as: easy editing, flexible, faultless.
This function is able to directly carry out edit of the design with stitch count of less than
65 thousand. For the oversize design, indirect edit can be made.

As for the oversize design, it

is recommended to divide the design into several sub-designs (the sub-designs to be edited
have stitch count of less than 65 thousand) which will then be edited respectively, and finally
several sub-designs are spliced in order. Owing to the oversize designs appear seldom,
therefore the contradiction between editing speed and editing oversize design will be solved
easily.

Setting the Embroidery Frame Range

range of design (design outline) is too big to be contained within the range of software
limitation. The solution to this problem caused by the former reason is to move the frame so as
to make the design embroidery range be within the range of the software limitation, otherwise
the system will give the warning of Embroidery overframe at embroidery. If the problem is
due to the later reason, it will not be solved by moving the frame merely. At that situation, user

Chapter 30

Manual of Embcom Software

mother board. (Use direct network cable to realize network connection)


(2) Network Port Type: This type is to realize the network function by connecting the PC to
network port directly.The cross network cable is needed for connection.
4.

Procedures for Installation & Debugging

(1) Ensure the connections of mother board, hub, Dahao network connection converter,
embroidery machine computer serial port or network port are ok. And make sure the
communication is unhindered;
(2) Set the IP address of PC;
(3) Set IP, server address, port number and other parameters of embroidery machine computer.
(4) Run server software EmbNetServer
(5) Run the client software EmbClient
5. The ways to construct network

(1) One PC directly connected to one embroidery machine


In this situation crossover cable is used to link the network interface of PC to the network
interface of embroidery machine.

(2) C and embroidery machine linked by HUB


In this situation straight-through cable is used to link PC with HUB.

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

119

Chapter 30

Manual of Embcom Software

(3) Connect the two networks in 2 through HUB


6. Setting the network parameters of embroidery machine
(1) MAC address of embroidery machine
Set MAC address of NIC of embroidery machine. Each embroidery machine has its sole
address. The range of this parameter is 000000000000~00FFFFFFFFFF.
(2) IP address of server
This parameter has to be the IP address of the PC installed with EmbNetServer. This
address can be found in the display window of EmbNetServer.
EmbNetServer installation and use refer to the CD information with embroidery machine.
(3) Server port No.
This parameter value is the port number used by EmbNetServer. The number can be
found in the display window of EmbNetServer.
(4) IP address of embroidery machine
Set the IP address of embroidery machine when its linked with PC. The IP addresses of
embroidery machines cant be repeated. In one sub network the network numbers of
embroidery machines and PCs have to be the same. And their computer numbers have to be
different.
(5) Subnet mask
Set the subnet mask of IP address of embroidery machine when its linked with PC. In
one sub network the subnet masks of embroidery machines and PCs have to be the same.

120

(6) Gateway address


If embroidery machines are in the two different sub networks, the gateway address has to
be set. Otherwise theres no need to set it.
7. Making Ethernet cable
(1) Making straight-through cable
The pins in the two terminals of twisted-pair cable have to be in one-to-one
correspondence. If the first pin of one terminal is green, the first pin of the other terminal must
also be green. The twisted-pair cable made in this way is usually called straight-through
cable.

13, 26 crossover connection: Twisted-pair cable has 4 pairs of pins (8 pins). Only 4
pins are used in network, namely the first, second and third, sixth pins. They are used for
receiving and sending signals. The connection rule is: the first pin of one terminal is connected
to the third pin of the other terminal, and the second to the sixth. Other pins are connected to

8. Notes for network setting parameters
(1) MAC address
In physical transmission of network bottom level, the computers are recognized by
physical address (MAC). So its necessary to keep the uniqueness of MAC address. When the
first two digits of MAC address are not zero, some network equipments regards it as illegal
MAC address and the equipment cant be linked to the network. So the first two digits of
MAC address must be zero.

122

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

Chapter 30

Manual of Embcom Software

(2) IP address
1) Definition of IP address
IP also called Internet address is the logic address for solely marking the computers in
internet. Every computer in the internet relies on the IP address to mark itself. Its like we find
the phone by the phone number in the phone book. In one network the IP address must be
unique.
2) Form of IP address
One IP address includes 4 decimal integers portioned by decimal points. Each integer is
in fact composed of 8 binary numbers. So the maximum of each integer is 255 and the
minimum is 0.
3) Structure and classification of IP
The four numbers of IP address can be divided into 2 parts. One is network number for
marking the network. Another is computer number for marking the specific machine in one
network. IP addresses are divided into 3 kinds: A, B and C.
A: the first number represents network and the following 3 numbers represent computer.
B: the first two numbers represent network and the following 2 numbers represent
computer.
C: the first three numbers represent network and the last one represents computer.
Use the following example to explain the network number and computer number of C
type.

(3) Subnet mask


To show how the network number and computer number are divided, subnet mask is used
to tell in one IP address which part is for network and which part is for computer. Its
regulated that 1 is for network part and 0 is for computer part. IP address and subnet mask
combine to tell in which network the computer is. So the subnet mask is very important. If its
wrong, it will get the wrong network address. Therefore the same network number must be set
with the same subnet mask.
(4) Gateway
Its the IP address of the router which is in the same subnet of the computer. As in the
followed picture, if one data packet is to be transmitted to a computer in network 2, this data
packet has to be sent to the router linked to us. Its like in sending by post you only need to

124

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

Chapter 30

Manual of Embcom Software

deliver a letter to postman instead of delivering by yourself. So when the computers are not in
the same network segment, the gateway also has to be set properly in setting computers.
Otherwise computers dont know where to deliver the data packet.

JF Type Sequin Embroidery

31-1 Brief introduction on sequin embroidery


Sequin embroidery is composed of sequins and threads. We choose those hard materials
with smooth surfaces as the sequins. Embroidery works will be shining with these sequins
attached. Design with Sequin codes has its own way of designing.
JF type multi-sequin embroidery of BECS-2X6 machine is divided into two groups: one
is normal multi-sequin design, made by normal design making method. The other one is
special multi-sequin design made by normal design software with special making method
attached.
For normal one, you should set sequin mode when you modify the color-changing order.
Special multi-sequin design can be directly embroidered after modification of color-changing
order.
If users want to adjust sequin, they can make change by using sequin edit. After
changing, the multi-sequin design will be special multi-sequin design.
Note: seeAppendixMaking of Special Multi-Sequin Designfor detailed design making
rules.
A. Applied Scope:
This system applies to sequin embroidering control system which combines normal
embroidering mechanism and sequin sending mechanism.
B. Features and Functions:
1. Two sending sequin modes: Roller and Lever;
Roller: the core part is a wheel-like device in the whole mechanism. Its operating
principle is to wheel continuous towards one direction to send sequins into position.
Lever: the core part is staff linkage. Its operating principle is to move back-and-forth to
send the sequins into position.
2. Sequin mending and sequin sending mechanism are two independent actions
3. Delivering a sequin by operating either manual separated head or centralized
4. Display working status separated head
5. Type of sequin sending and angle can be changed by operating on the control panel.
C. Specifications
1.

Sequin diameter range: 3mm,4mm,5mm,6.75mm and 9mm;

2.

The maximum speed for sequin embroidery is 850 rpm.

JF Type Sequin Embroidery

The following are specified parameter instructions, followed by their ranges.


(1) Speed for Sequin R(L): (300,310,,the maximum speed)
The speed depends on the sequin size. However, sewing the same sequin with different
mechanical structure, the acting angle could be different, which is directly related to the
maximum speed.
Note: the maximum speed of flat embroidery should be higher or equal to speed for
sequin embroidery.
(2) Sequin L(R) Adj. Angle ( from -15 to 15)
It is used for jiggle adjusting sequin delivery angle.
(3) Auto start for sequin(No, Yes)
When the setting is Yes, system will start embroidering sequin automatically.
When the setting is No, machine needs manually start.
(4) Time of Sequin Action(0~15)
This is to set the time period from sequin device goes down to embroidering (0-15, the
default value is 2). If the sequin device is controlled by valve, use the default value; if it is
controlled by motor, choose 4-5.
(5) Sequin off after T.B.( No, Yes)
When the setting is Yes, sequin presser foot will be lift up automatically in case of

foot.
(6) Up Valve When Jump & Nocut(No, Yes)
(7) Motor Number of R (L) Sequin(NO, 1~4,1(2~4))
Tihis parameter is set by mechanism . If there is no sequin device, then you should set to
0.
(8) Set 3/4/5/6.75/9mm of R(L) Sequin(Lever 6~40 Degree, Roller 6~40)
This is to set sequin delivery angle. If it is roller, it should be set to single way; if it is
lever, it should be set to double way. The parameter is closely related to left/right sequin
device A/B/C/D size and color. For example, A size & color of R sequin is set to 4mm X
color, then the angle value should be Set 4MM of R Sequin.
(9) A/B/C/D size & color of

R/L sequin

(3/4/5/6.75/9mmRed/Green/Blue/Purple/Yellow/Cyan/silver/Golden)
Setting of this parameter depends on the mechanical structure. The order from A to D is

32-4 Mechanical Category and Driving Mode Choice of Special Embroidery
Machines
Taping machines have three moving parts in the sense of mechanics. We define them as M
axis, E axis and clamp foot axis. M axis rotates a certain degrees every stitch to trace the stitch,
which ensures cords or tapes always in front of needle movement. E axis swings once every
one or two stitch to make the zigzag embroidery. Clamp foot axis is for lifting and lowering
the clamp foot.
1. M axis
The mechanism of M axis can be divided to two types. One is with clutch device, whose
action is controlled by electro pneumatic valve or by hand. Its advantage is that only the M
axis of the mending embroidery is moving and non-mending embroidery heads are still when
mending. This will help raise the quality and efficiency of mending. The other type is without
clutch device. Both of the two types are driven by servomotor and the origin of the M axis is
positioned by proximity switch.
2. E axis
According to the difference in motor and whether to use the proximity switch for
positioning, E axis can be divided to the following types:

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

143

Chapter 32

Management of Coiling, Taping and Zigzag Embroidery

1) Stepping motor, driving heads separately, without proximity switch for positioning
2) Stepping motor, driving heads by one motor, with proximity switch for positioning
3) Stepping motor, driving heads by one motor, without proximity switch for positioning
4) Servomotor driving, with proximity switch for positioning
3. Clamp foot axis
The working diagram of the clamp foot: (The clamp foot working height is the interval of
the foots movement with every stitch. The clamp foot rising height is the foots moving
distance from the bottom to the upper point in non-embroidery mode. And its also called the
clamp foot limited height.)

According to the difference in motor and whether to use the proximity switch for
positioning, the clamp foot axis can be divided to the following types:
(1) Raising the clamp foot by hand
In this mode, the clamp foot working height relies on the rotating of the cam and the
clamp foot is raised to the limited height by hand.
(2) 2-phase stepping motor, separately driving the embroidery heads, without the holding
force and proximity switch
It uses a 2-phase stepping motor for driving every special embroidery head and
controlling its working height and limited height. The power is off and there is no the holding
force when the clamp foot stays at the upper point or bottom point. No proximity switch is
taken for positioning. And the controller by default takes that the foot is at the bottom position
when turning on the machine.
(3) 2-phase stepping motor, separately driving the embroidery heads, with the holding
force and without proximity switch
It uses a 2-phase stepping motor for driving every special embroidery head and

144

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

Chapter 32

Management of Coiling, Taping and Zigzag Embroidery

controlling its working height and limited height. The power is on and there is the holding
force when the clamp foot stays at the upper point, but not at the bottom point. No proximity
switch is taken for positioning. And the controller by default takes that the foot is at the bottom
position when turning on the machine.
(4) Mono-phase AC motor, driving the embroidery heads by one motor, 2 proximity
switches
In this mode, the clamp foot working height relies on the rotating of the cam and the
clamp foot is raised to the limited height by one mono-phase AC motor driving the clamp axis.
Both the upper and bottom points are set with a proximity switch to adjust the clamp foot
rising height. Neither the upper nor bottom point has the holding force.
(5) (2-phase or 3-phase) stepping motor, driving the embroidery heads by one motor, 1
proximity switch
In this mode, the clamp foot working height relies on the rotating of the cam and the
clamp foot is raised to the limited height by stepping motor driving the clamp axis. The upper
point is set with a proximity switch to position. The bottom point is set by parameters. Both
the upper and bottom points have the holding force.
(6) Pneumatic motor, separately driving the embroidery heads, without proximity switch
In this mode, the clamp foot working height relies on the rotating of the cam and the
clamp foot is raised to the limited height by pneumatic motor driving the heads separately.

33-1 Brief of Combination Embroidery Function


The Combination Embroidery is the new embroidery function developed on the basis of
the BECS series platform which features for its stable performance. The combination
embroidery function includes three functions, such as extension of embroidery range, increase
of color number at embroidery and increase of both embroidery range and color number. We
will provide the detailed operation procedure and method on setting each function in the
following paragraphs.
Attention: The manual is the same with special equipment of T.B DETECT and SOFTWARE.
33-2 Introduction of Grouping at Combination Embroidery
1. Introduction of Grouping Method
The Combination Embroidery can divide 2, 3, 4 or random heads in a group. You can take
reference from the following figures:

Chapter 33

Management of Combination Embroidery

Random
Heads in a
Group
The Meaning of Grouping Method
12 Heads in a Group: Make 2 neighboring heads in one group, the heads with odd
number are the 1st group, the head with even number are the 2nd group. It is suitable to the
design that needs two heads to work together.
23 Heads in a Group: Make 3 neighboring heads in one group that means the Group 1
contains the head No.1, No.4, No.7 ., Group 2 contains the head No.2, No.5, No.8.., and
Group 3 contains the head No.3, No.6 No.9. It is suitable to the design that needs 3 heads to
work together.
34 Heads in a Group: Make 4 neighboring heads in one group that means the Group 1
contains the head No1. No.5, No.9, Group 2 contains the head No.2, No.6, No.10, Group
3 contains the head No.3, No.7, No.11, and Group 4 contains the head No.4, No.8 and
No.12. It is suitable to the design that needs 4 heads to work together.
4Random Heads in a Group: Make random heads in one group. For an example, Group 1
contains head No.1, No.3, No.7, and Group 2 contains head No.4, No.6, No.10. It is for
embroidering the special designs.
2Method for Setting Head Group
1In Embroidery interface, press

and then have access to INPUT & REPEAT.

2 The 2nd Item ONE DESIGNS HEAD NUM is for selecting the grouping method,
which is needed setting according to the actual requirements. (If it is set at 2, the entire heads
will be grouped as 2 Heads in a Group. If it is 1, the combination embroidery function will
be unavailable.)
3Press

3Introduction of Extending Embroidery Range


In order to achieve the purpose for extending the embroidery range, user can use several
heads to embroider one design together, whose range is so big that it is unable to be done by
one head.
ExampleUse 2 Heads in a Group method to extend the embroidery range: Use two
heads to do one design together, whose range shall be within the coverage of two heads.

4Introduction of Increasing Color Number at Embroidery


In order to achieve the purpose for increasing the color number at embroidery, user can use
several heads to embroider one design together, whose color is much that it is unable to be
done by one head.
ExampleUse 2 Heads in a Group method to increase the color number: Use two heads
to do one design that has 18 colors and each head has 9 colors:

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

155

Chapter 33

Management of Combination Embroidery

5Introduction of Increasing both Color Number & Embroidery Range


In order to achieve the purposes for both increasing color number and embroidery range,
user can use several heads to embroider one design, which covers such a large range and has
so much color that it is unable to be done by a single head.
Example: Use 4 Heads in a Group method to increase both the color number and the
embroidery range: Use four heads to do one design that has 18 colors and is within the range
of two neighboring heads. Each head has 9 colors.

33-3 Setting Method of Head Address


Attention: When using combination embroidery, user shall set the head address at first, or
it is unable to divide the heads into group for embroidery correctly.

again to activate Color Order interface, and then perform the settings as

below:
Among the parameters of color-changing sequence, the numbers at upper row are the
grouping parameters, and the numbers at lower row are the needle parameters. If user needs to
use the first needle of the head at group 1, the user should press 1 and then set the group
number at 1. If the sixth needle of the head at group 2 is needed, the user should press 6 and
then set the group number at 2.
Attention: The grouping color-changing codes are used to switch the heads for extending
the embroidery range. If the color-changing sequence is set as 2132425363, the 2nd needle at
head in group 1 will work first. When encountering the first color-changing code, the system
will order the 3rd needle at head in group 2 to work. During the process of switching the head
group, the frame will not move. When the controller encounters the 2nd color-changing code,
the head group will not switch and only the needle will change, because the working head is
still at the 2nd group. At that moment, the 4th needle at head in group 2 will work. When the
controller encounters the third color-changing code, the 5th needle at head in group 3 will be
activated to work. During the process of switching head group, the frame will not move. After
the 4th color-changing code, the 6th needle at head in group 3 will be activated to work. During
the process of embroidery, the frame will not move at switching the head group.

again to activate GROUP interface, and then perform the settings as

below:
At default grouping, the Group 0 is ANY (All heads will work at same time.); Group 1
is 1, 3, 5 (The heads with odd number will work at same time); Group 2 is 2, 4,
6 (The heads with even number will work at same time) .
If two heads are needed to do a design in embroidery for increasing the color number, the
two heads will be set as different groups (Head 1 is set as group 1, while head 2 is set as group
2); If three heads are needed to do a design in embroidery for increasing the color number,
these three heads will be set as different groups (Head 1 is set as group 1, while head 2 is set as
group 2, and head 3 is set as group 3).And the FRAME RANGE BY HEAD needs to be set
at 3. The rest are also in the same principle.
AttentionFirstly, please confirm the FRAME RANGE BY HEAD, this parameter
should be no less than the group number. If it is set at 3, it can be used for either increasing
color number between 2 heads (Head 1 is set as group 1 and head 2 is set as group 2) or

below
Among the parameters of color-changing sequence, the numbers at upper row are the
grouping parameters, and the numbers at lower row are the needle parameters. If user needs to
use the first needle at the head in group 1, the user should press 1 and then set the group
number at 1. If the sixth needle at the head in group 2 is needed, the user should press 6 and
then set the group number at 2.
Attention: The grouping color-changing codes are used to switch the heads for increasing
the color number. If the color-changing sequence is set as 2132425361, the 2nd needle at head in
group 1 will work first. When encountering the first color-changing code, the system will
order the frame to move forward for one-heads distance, and then the 3rd needle at head in
group 2 will start to work. When the controller encounters the 2nd color-changing code, the
head group will not switch and only the needle will change, because the working head is still
at the 2nd group. At that moment, the 4th needle at head in group 2 will work and the frame will
keep still. When the controller encounters the third color-changing code, the 5th needle at head
in group 3 will be activated to work. During the process of switching head group, the frame

will move forward for one heads distance. After the 4th color-changing code, the frame will
move backward for 2-heads distance, and then the 6th needle at head in group 1 will be
activated to work. During the process of embroidery, the frame will move for the distance

AttentionWhen both increasing the embroidery range and color number, the system will
deem the two neighboring group as an upper-group (Group 1 & Group 2, Group 3 & Group 4,
Group 5 & Group 6) for increasing color number. When the heads shift within the
upper-group, like head 1 shifting to head 2, the frame will move for a heads distance. The
system will use the upper-groups (like Group 1 & 2 and Group 3 & 4 and Group 5 & 6) to
extend the embroidery range. During the shift among the upper-groups, if the shift is between
the heads with odd number or between the heads with even number, the frame will not move.
If the shift is between the head with odd number and head with even number, the frame will
move for a heads distance correspondingly. For an example, if head at Group 1 shifts to head
at Group 3, or head at group 2 shifts to head at group 4, the frame will not move; if head at
group 1 shift s to head at group 2 or head at group 2 shifts to the head at group 3 or head at
group 1 shifts to the head at group 4, the frame will move for a heads distance. The system
will deem two neighboring heads as one head for increasing the color number, on the basis of
which the extension of embroidery range can be achieved.

again to activate Color Order interface, and then perform settings as below:

Among the parameters of color-changing sequence, the numbers at upper row are the

grouping parameters, and the numbers at lower row are the needle parameters. If user needs to
use the first needle at the head in group 1, the user should press 1 and then set the group
number at 1. If the sixth needle at the head in group 2 is needed, the user should press 6 and
then set the group number at 2.
Attention: The grouping color-changing codes are used to switch the heads for increasing
both the color number and the embroidery range. If the color-changing sequence is set as
213242546312, the 2nd needle at head in group 1 will work first. When encountering the first
color-changing code, the system will order the frame to move forward for one-heads distance,
and then 3rd needle at head in group 2 will start to work. When the controller encounters the
2nd color-changing code, the head group will not switch and only the needle will change,
because the working head is still at the 2nd group. At that moment, the 4th needle at head in
group 2 will work and the frame will keep still. When the controller encounters the third
color-changing code, the 5th needle at head in group 4 will be activated to work. During the
process of switching head group, the frame will keep still because this switch is between two
groups with even number. After the 4th color-changing code, the frame will move backward
for 1-heads distance because the switch is between a group with odd number and a group with
even number. And then the 6th needle at head in group 3 will be activated to work. After the
fifth color-changing code, the frame will move forward for one heads distance, and then the
1st needle at head in group 2 will start to work.

Apendix :Making of Special Multi-Sequin Design

AppendixMaking of Special Multi-Sequin Design


1 Dahao special multi-sequin design principle
The normal design making system identify a sequin code as a jump stitch, but it can not
distinguish sequin combinations from one stitch position. For instance, it can not recognize its
a sequin A or B at one stitch position. Dahao special multi-sequin design principle making is
to add a few jump stitch codes after the original sequin codejump stitch or stitch length is less
than 0.1mmto indicate sequin combination. Thus achieve embroidering overlap sequin on one
stitch position. For instance, A+C means overlap sequin of A and C.
Rule is as follows:
The value of sequin A is 1we use 1 sequin code.
The value of sequin B is 2we use 1 sequin code plus 1 jump stitch.
The value of sequin A+B is 3we use 1 sequin code plus 2 jump stitches.
The value of sequin C is 4we use 1 sequin code plus 3 jump stitches.
The value of sequin A+C is 5we use 1 sequin code plus 4 jump stitches.
The value of sequin B+C is 6we use 1 sequin code plus 5 jump stitches.
The value of sequin A+B+C is 7we use 1 sequin code plus 6 jump stitches.
The value of sequin D is 8we use 1 sequin code plus 7 jump stitches.
The value of sequin A+D is 9we use 1 sequin code plus 8 jump stitches.
The value of sequin B+D is 10we use 1 sequin code plus 9 jump stitches.
The value of sequin A+B+D is 11we use 1 sequin code plus 10 jump stitches.
The value of sequin C+D is 12we use 1 sequin code plus 11 jump stitches.
The value of sequin A+C+D is 13we use 1 sequin code plus 12 jump stitches.
The value of sequin B+C+D is 14we use 1 sequin code plus 13 jump stitches.
The value of sequin A+B+C+D is 15we use 1 sequin code plus 14 jump stitches.
2 Making trace for multi-sequin
By using trace, we can easily input sequin or sequin combinations. Example: A, B, A+B,
C, A+C, B+C, A+B+C, D, A+D, B+D, A+B+D, C+D, A+C+D, B+C+D, A+B+C+D, etc.
We here take sequin B designing as an example.

1) Open any design making software. First we zoom in the blank to certain scaleit is

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

201

Apendix :Making of Special Multi-Sequin Design

for easily input sequins in a placeand go into sequin state.

2) Input a sequin.

3) Since the value of sequin B is 2, we should put 2 sequins in here, which means, we
have to add another sequin.

4) Continue to type in other single-stitches.


5) You can see stitch list shows 2 sequins as the following image.
6) Select all stitches.

7) Making trace, group is JP, name is JP-B


8) Type in two reference point.

Single needle multi-sequin, you can use stitch form -> trace -> apply. Then
manual stitch to finish entering.

Others (curvecan apply trace too.


1) Click sequin button to enter sequin state (this is to ensure all the curve course
have sequin). Enter the curve as the following.

204

2) Select a target.

3) Set target properties and select related trace.

4) Multi-sequin input is finished.


5 Making alternate sequin
This is to realize embroidering of different sequin alternate. For instance, A1B1
embroidery to realize embroidering A, B, A, B
1) First you should design alternate trace. As the following A1B1 alternate design:

206

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

Apendix :Making of Special Multi-Sequin Design

2) Apply the above trace to achieve alternate A1B1.


6 Design maker should build up design data base
Now we have sequins: 3MM, 4MM, 5MM, 6.75MM and 9MM. while the first needle
position can have 4 sequin delivery devices at most.

So we can get the following 15

combinations: A,B,AB,C,AC,BC,ABC,D,AD,BD, ABD,CD,ACD,BCD,ABCD.


The design data base emerges different sequin size with sequin combination.
If there are two sequin delivery devices A and B. A design document uses 3MM
sequin and 5MM. Then the design data base should contain 3MM-A base, 5MM-B base,
and 5MM-AB base. While the other design data base uses 4MM and 6.75MM, then the
design data base should contain 4MM-A, 6.75MM-B and 6.75MM-AB.
If there are three sequin delivery devices A, B and C. A design document uses
3MM, 4MM and 6.75MM, then the design data base should contain 3MM-A base,
4MM-B base, 4MM-AB base, 6.75MM-C base, 6.75MM-AC base, 6.75MM-BC base
and 6.75MM-ABC base. While the other design data base uses 3MM, 6.75MM and
9MM. Then the design data base should contain 3MM-A base, 6.75MM-B base,
6.75MM-AB base, 9-C base, 9-AC base, 9-BC base and 9-ABC base.
Other sequin design data bases are as the same
The alternate sequin design data base should combine single and overlap sequins.
For instance, 3MM-A sequin base and 4MM-AB sequin base can form alternate sequin
of 3MM-A & 4MM-AB, which achieves embroidering effect of A, AB, A, AB
7 Normal sequin design to Dahao special sequin design
According to the above rules, we just need to insert some jump stitch after sequin code
to change the original sequin code to multi-sequin code.

BECS-316/366 Computerized Embroidery Machines Manual

207

Apendix :Making of Special Multi-Sequin Design

1) If you want to change the first sequin code to A+B sequin code, you need to
locate to that stitch firstits character is to let down the sequin.
2) Right click insert jump stitch twice to insert two jump stitches after the original
sequin code.
3) You can see the stitch list as the following image. The first sequin is overlap A+B,
the second one is sequin A.
Save as the TAJIMA DST document.
