Seamlessly integrated robotic tufting solution with eHMI, eDesigner and eTuft

eHMI (Human Machine Interface for Tufting Robots) software is specially developed to ease the robot operator’s tasks.

The advanced control unit of eTuft tufting robots is powered by EFAB’s own HMI software with a very unique GUI (Graphical User Interface) on a convenient touchscreen monitor.

eHMI software and eTuft robot form a seamlessly integrated tufting system which is fully compatible with eDesigner Carpet Design software (supporting 3D and smart cut/loop designs). With these three innovative developments, EFAB provides you a complete robotic-tufting solution.

Unique Multilingual Graphical User Interface

This user-friendly interface utilizes advanced algorithms to handle the eTuft effectively. It provides special reports and controlling items to make the operator run the robot smoothly and efficiently.

eHMI is available in different languages. It can also be adapted to your language requirements on demand.

All in One Solution

eHMI software has many capabilities and provides various useful functions to the operator:

  • “New Design Wizard” for creating simple designs on the robot, an ideal tool for sampling or plain carpets
  • Internal File management
  • 2D and 3D Design previews
  • Design selection and defining production schedule
  • Preview of the tufting process and changing the order of layers
  • Setting production parameters like speed, densities, pile heights and …
  • Ability to view the tufting process on the control unit while the robot is running
  • Custom Tuft function for start tufting from desired point
  • and more …
