Abstract : This document presents Volume IV of the report of research into the automation of shirt collar manufacturing using robotic methods. Presented is the proof-of-concept device for automation of the pressing operation, wherein both points of a double pointed shirt collar are presented to a pressing machine simultaneously, using appropriate grippers and machine vision systems, to achieve the critical alignment necessary for successful collar manufacture. The results of several trials of the machine are presented, showing the success of the design.
