Innovative and user-friendly edge trimmer for the automotive and upholstery industry

The new edge trimmer of the VETRON 5040 is characterized by excellent features in operation and processing for butt seams in the automotive and upholstery industry.

The control element with manual and automatic functions is located low-noise in easy reach of operator. The low-noise and low-vibration run of the edge cutter make the VETRON 5040 the best working partner in production.

The knife motor control offers different usage options between an manual and automatic work mode. Both, in manual and in automatic mode, the speed is controlled by a potentiometer. Functions as „cutter stop by foot lifting“ or „cutter stop at seam end“ can be combined using by toggle switch. In automatic mode, the edge trimmer only runs while se­wing.

High tech as standard
Key facts

Through the consistent use of state of the art electronic control it became possible to make all machine settings programmable into memory and thus recallable.


This allows the process parameters to be free from operators influence and identical every time the program is recalled. The innovative dynamic machine parameter, based on the actual speed and the permanent measurement of the material thickness, open new possibilities of production quality, process security and the reduction of cycle times.

Programmable Setup

All machine settings are programmable and storable: stitch length, sewing feet pressure, top feed stroke, needle thread tension, clearance under the sewing feet …

Control Panel P107

Simple operation - easy to remove

The control panel concept P107 is one of the new generations of control panels. It guarantees easy operation with simple navigation.

In the automotive production is this operating concept ideally suited for setting the sewing parameters and sewing programs / sequences. The control panel is simply removed after setting - the operator can no longer intervene in the sewing parameters.
