Beaded pads utilized as cooling mat and handicraft are popular. Nowadays, all the beaded pads are hand-woven. This paper proposes a beaded pad automatic weaving method to solve the hand-woven problems of inefficiency, poor consistency and higher cost. The single-line direct-threading automatic weaving method is proposed on the basis of the investigation of the hand-woven process. Further, the beaded pad automatic weaving trajectory mathematical modelling and simulation for the proposed single-line direct-threading weaving method is presented.
