Abstract :

This paper presents the development of a microcontroller system to replace a problematic mechanical system of a weaving machine. The developed retrofit consists of a graphical user interface (GUI) to allow pattern development in a personal computer. The patterns are then transferred to a serial electrically erasable programmable read only memory (SEEPROM) located on the main microcontroller system. The microcontrollers together with an external synchronizing signal allow smooth weaving of the pattern on the cloth material. The developed retrofit produced identical patterns as the original machine. The developed GUI contributes significant time saving to the process of pattern production.
