embroidery threads, embroidered element, fabric, buckling


In production of garments, embroidery carries out a variety of functions, one of which is the aesthetic appearance of the product improvement. The resulting defects, are seen as a negative indicator of the product quality. The discrepancy of the embroidered element to the digital design in size is a defect, which is influenced by the embroidery threads, embroidery materials properties and process parameters. The fabric sorrounded by the embroidery threads between adjancent needle penetrations inside of the embroidered element is compressed, buckling. The aim of this paper is to investigate the influence of the properties of embroidery threads on buckling of fabric inside of the embroidered element. For investigations specimens were prepared using different fibre composition, density and linear structure of the embroidery threads. Specimens were cut and photo-captured at the beginning, middle and end of the embroidered element.  It was found, that different properties of the embroidery threads affecting on the different behavior of fabric inside of the embroidered element. The results of the investigations showed that the fabric inside of the embroidered element formed larger waves of buckling using the maximum elongation of the feedback exhibiting embroidery thread.
