Abstract (en)

The embroidery machine assembly has machine frames (11,12) flanking a service passage (15), linked by upper struts (13). The grids (21,23) are at the frames, each with a stretched fabric (25,27) for embroidery. A needle trolley at each frame has a number of embroidery points, and a common control operates both half sections of the machine, with a drive which moves both grids vertically in the same direction and laterally in opposite directions. The embroidery machine has a service passage which gives access at the needle side and the shuttle side. The upper ends of the machine frames are held together by struts or an assembly of struts. The grids are moved by servo motors. An Independent claim is included for an embroidery operation, to embroider identical patterns on at least two parallel fabrics. The movement components of the embroidery needles at one needle trolley (17,19) are opposed to the movement components of the needles at the other trolley (19,17). Preferred Features: The movement components of the shuttle mechanism (43) at one machine frame are opposed to the movement components of the shuttle mechanism (45) at the other machine frame.

Abstract (de)

Die Stickmaschine weist auf beiden Seiten eines Bedienungsgangs (15) Maschinengestelle (11,12) auf, die oben durch Streben (13) miteinander verbunden sind. In den Maschinengestellen (11,12) sind die Gatter (21,23) angeordnet, auf denen je ein Stickboden (25,27) aufgespannt ist. Jedem Maschinengestell (11,12) ist ein sogenannter Nadelwagen mit einer Vielzahl von Stickstellen zugeordnet. Eine einzige Steuereinheit dient der Steuerung beider Maschinenhälften. Beide Maschinenhälften sind so angeordnet, dass im Betrieb der Maschine die durch bewegte Massen beider Maschinenhälften erzeugte Vibrationskräfte im wesentlichen in entgegengesetzten Richtungen zueinander wirken und sich so wegen der Verbindung der Maschinengestelle (11,12) durch Streben (13) gegenseitig aufheben. Im Betrieb der Maschine bewegen sich die Gatter (21,23) vertikal in der gleichen Richtung und horizontal in einander entgegengesetzten Richtungen. Dabei erscheint das Stickbild auf beiden Gattern in gleicher Stellung. <IMAGE>
