The features at a glance!

Incredibly easy to operate: Simply select a sewing program and the display will show you all the relevant information, like stitch length, seam width, differential feed setting, etc.

The thread tension is set automatically.
Each stitch has been pre-programmed with optimum settings and can be individually adjusted.

Individual stitch settings can be customized and stored!
There are three additional memories for each stitch!

Perfect serging and hemming in one operation!
Professional results! Three cover stitches, 5 mm/2.5 mm, and the triple cover stitch for elastic fabrics!

Authentic industrial seams!
The 5-thread safety-stitch seam for extreme durability.
Ideal for coveralls, work clothes, children's wear and even upholstery covers!

All controls are easily accessible!
The differential feed regulator wheel, the stitch length adjustment knob and the presser
foot lifter are located on the right side of the machine, allowing you to change settings even while guiding fabric with your left hand.

Threading couldn't be easier!
All threading paths are color-coded.
Plus special threading aids for the looper and a practical needle
threader accessory!

Perfectly even seams!
The differential feed prevents the material from being stretched or puckered. Even
stretchy knitwear remains smooth and flat. Wonderful wavelike effects can be
achieved by setting the differential feed in reverse.

Variable sewing speed! When things gets tricky, you can just reduce the sewing speed.

No matter what the thickness of the fabric or the sewing speed,
the needle piercing power and the cutting power remain consistent.

The presser foot pressure can be adjusted in six steps, so every fabric can be moved
through the machine at the perfect speed.

Just press the tension release button to easily remove the fabric from under the presser foot.

Generous work surface!
Need more room? Simply attach the power table.

The spool holder slides back to accomodate large spools and to make more room during sewing.

Keep your workspace clean!
With the large waste container for collecting trimming waste.

Everything is included in the accessory box!
Tweezers, needle threader and much more are included with the machine.

Wonderfully practical!
You can change the needles in a flash with the needle inserting tool.
The thread chain cutter eliminates the need for thread scissors.

Extra-high presser foot clearance (up to 6.5 mm!) for sewing heavy fabrics or several layers of fabric.

The movable upper knife can be turned on and off as needed.

Safety first!
When the hook cover or the swivel plate is open, the machine will not operate.

Embellishing work can be fun!
Roll-hemming is a snap - without removing the presser foot or the needle plate!
The 2-thread chainstitch can be a very charming decorative stitch!
The decorative 2-thread flatlock is created with only two threads by engaging the converter!
Create sophisticated decorative stitches with the cover stitch!
