Settings: Color Change Precision (CCP) - Advanced Operator's Manual May 12, 2022 13:09 Updated v2.0.0 Color Change Precision (CCP) Embroidery machines have a natural variation on thread consumption. High quality on the result of embroideries occurs when the precision of the color changes are optimized. The Coloreel ITCU has a function that optimize the color change precision through estimations of the thread consumption.It is possible to choose between 2 different data collection methods for the estimation of thread consumption. The 2 data collection methods are Single Sample Data and Aggregated Sample Data. You can verify how your design can be affected by the variation of thread consumption by the use of CCP min/max functions in Coloreel Studio. Edit Active setup Retrain Active setup Create new setup Activate advanced settings för the embroidery machine Active setup To select an individual setup Select a individual setup in the Active setup down list. Refer to Color Change Precision (CCP). To do an individual setup Select Create new setup. Name the setup under Name (A). If you want to use a setup that is in the setup library as a base, select that setup in the dropdown list (B). If you want to create a new setup without a base setup, select the option None inthe drop down list (B). Note: If a new setup is based on a setup that already exists, the new setup will have a slower learning curve. Click on Save (C) to add the new setup to the setup library. If it is not necessary to create a new setup, select Close (D). To Edit or Delete individual Setups Select Edit next to Active setup. Select Edit setup. If you want to delete the individual setup, select Delete. Data collection method To select the data collection method Note: It is only possible to create and use an Individual setup if Aggregated sample data is used. The normal data collection method is Aggregated sample data. Caution: The individual setup that is active on the Coloreel ITCU will be trained regardless of what data collection method that is used. Select the data collection method that you want to use in the drop down list below Datacollection method. . Aggregated Sample Data Aggregated Sample Data stores thread consumption data in a memory and uses the data to estimate thread consumption to optimize the color change precision. Aggregated Sample Data is the default data collection method. Aggregated Sample Data with an Individual Setup It is possible to create Individual Setups to make specific estimations for, for example, fabrics, backing combinations, and embroidery machines. To optimize the Color Change Precision for a New Individual Setup If you want to do the embroidery on a new fabric, backing combination or with a new/different embroidery machine, create a new Individual Setup. Do 2 Coloreel EQT training embroideries with your new Individual setup activated. Refer to,Active setup. If you do not have the Coloreel EQT stitch and color files, speak to your Coloreeldistributor. The Individual setup is now ready to be used. To use Aggregated Sample Data Make sure that the stitch file (.DST) and the color file (.CSE) are created correctly and that they are digitized to optimize color changes. Refer to the documents and videos about how to digitize the embroideries that are available on the Coloreel Webpage. Make sure that you have selected Aggregated Sample Data as data collection method. Make sure that the correct Individual setup is active. Refer to Color Change Precision (CCP). Start the print job. Refer to, To start a print job. Single Sample Data Single Sample Data uses the thread consumption from the most recent print job of the same embroidery as an estimation to optimize color change precision. To use Single Sample Data Single Sample Data can be used when you have an embroidery machine with, for example, an active thread feeder function or very low variations of thread consumption. Note: The Single sample data collection method always requires one training embroideryon the correct material to work correctly. Make sure that the stitch file (.DST) and the color file (.CSE) are created correctly and that they are digitized to optimize color changes. Refer to the documents and videos about how to digitize the embroideries that are available on the Distribution Webpage. Select single sample data as the data collection method. Refer to, Data collection method. Start the print job. Refer to To start a print job. Embroidery machine settings To verify the sensitivity of the design Coloreel Studio has a function to verify if a design is robust or if it is sensitive to the natural variation of thread consumption. Open your design in Coloreel Studio. Press the CCP min (A) and CCP max (B) to see if the color change will have an high impact on potential variation. Press (C) To switch from the recommended setting, +/- 25 cm, to the more narrow interval of +/-10 cm. Stitch count settings To improve Color Change Precision, CCP, you need to add the stitch count information from the embroidery machine. Add the stitch count information in the rows below Embroidery machine in the Color Change Precision, CCP section. Activate advanced stich count settings for additional parameters. See below for the stitch count information that is required to set the parameters correctly: For specific embroidery machines, navigate to the support section on support.coloreel.com. Standard Jump convert Number of consecutive jump stitches that causes a trim (0-9, default: 3) Tie ins Number of tie in stitches (0-10, default: 4) Tie offs Number of tie off stitches (0-10, default: 2) Thread break ties Number of tie stitches made after a thread break (0-10, default: 0) The stitch lenght Length of a tie stitch in mm (0.1-5, default: 0.5) Advanced Remove DST stitches without any length (default: on) ON/OFF Stitch sensor mounted on main shaft ON/OFF Additional main shaft rotations during trim Number of main shaft rotations that occur during trim excluding tie stitches (0-5, default: 1) Additional main shaft rotations during color change Number of main shaft rotations that occur during colorchange excluding tie stitches (0-5, default: 2) Comments 0 comments Please sign in to leave a comment.
