the supply groove first.
Together with the hook thread tension, the needle thread tension
influences the final seam record set. With thin sewing material,
excessive thread tension can lead to undesired gathering and
thread breakage.
Proper setting
If the tension of needle thread and hook thread is identical, the
thread interlacing lies in the middle of the sewing material.
Set the needle thread tension so that the desired seam record set
is achieved with the lowest possible tension.

The Skip Stitch Detection assembly comprises the following
components:
• Enlacement check (UK): This sensor checks prior
to each stitch if the needle thread is pulled around
the bobbin by the hook.
• Bobbin rotation monitor (SDÜ): The sensor checks if
the bobbin rotates during the sewing process. If the hook
thread is pulled off the bobbin correctly, sewing without a
hook thread (false sewing) is certain not to take place.
56
Operating Instructions 550-867 - 01.0 - 07/2019

• Remaining thread monitor: The sensor monitors the
hook thread quantity on the bobbin inside the bobbin
case. If the light beam from the light barrier is reflected
off the flat (2) during sewing, a message will be displayed
on the control panel. This signals that the hook thread
quantity is running low.
The user can finish the seam and change the bobbin

4.14.2 Sewing in the end label
WARNING
Risk of injury from damaged tearing seams!
Possible damage to the tearing seam if the end
label is sewn into the seam. In the event of an
accident, the airbag may consequently fail to
deploy, keeping it from protecting against serious
injury.
Sew the end label ONLY into a free seam section.
Since a production step that is essential to safety, the sewing of
the tearing seams is documented. All production data pertaining
to every tearing seam is recorded, saved and must be stored
permanently ( p. 152).
In addition, every tearing seam is assigned an end label that
includes a barcode. This barcode makes it possible retrieve the
production data from the database at any time.
The end label is printed on tear-resistant and flame-resistant
material by the end label printer and sewn into a free seam section
at the end of the sewing process. This ensures for the long term
that the end label will not be lost and can always be clearly
attributed at any time.
If you, for instance, wish to sew the end label into the 3rd seam
section and check the end label barcode, the function End label
in the seam record set must be activated for the 3rd seam section.
The end label printer will then automatically print the end label at
the end of the documented seam section. A scan of the end label
barcode is used to check if the correct end label is sewn in.

To create a new needle or hook thread, you must re-assign the
ident. number of the new thread. Every thread has been assigned
a so-called ident. number by the manufacturer. The ident. number
is included on every needle or hook thread reel.
You can, for instance, specify that you wish to read the first 4 digits
of the ident. number ( p. 192). The manufacturer may include
such information in the first 4 digits as the type or the color of the
thread.
The ident. number is stored in the seam record sets. A check at
the beginning of the sewing process will determine if the needle
and hook threads on the machine match the selected seam record
set. If the threads match the seam record set, the sewing process
can be started. If not, an error message will be displayed, and the
sewing process cannot be started.

5.17 Creating a teach-in file
If the machine is equipped with the electronically regulated thread
tension (ETT), the needle thread tension during sewing is
compared and readjusted based on a preset setpoint and
tolerance range. The values of the needle thread tension in the
documented seam sections are also logged and saved for each
individual stitch.
The ideal value for the needle thread tension is influenced by different
factors that include the sewing speed, the sewing material, the sewing
yarn, the user, etc.
If the needle thread tension falls outside this tolerance range more
frequently than specified, the seam will be defined as a seam of
poor quality. In this case, the machine will display an error
message during sewing. The sewing material is faulty and not
suitable for use.
To achieve optimum sewing results across different materials and to
be able to quickly and easily transfer the values of the needle thread
tension to several seam record sets, you can create so-called teachin files. Such a teach-in file contains all important values and can be
linked to any seam record set.
