than just an industrial sewing machine

Direct-drive 1-needle lockstitch post bed sewing machine with triple transport

„Lockstitch post bed sewing machine with a 50 mm

increased sewing set“

VETRONs newly presented lockstitch post bed sewing machine features an extra large clearance of 133 mm between the sewing head bottom side and the stitch plate, as well as direct drive and triple transport.

Thanks to an extremely enlarged sewing set, special work operations such as 3D processing with tight radii can be executed easily.
This special postbed sewing machine is tailor-made for automotive, dashboards, bags or suitcase applications. Thanks to the longer needle bar and needle feet, the VETRON 5380 seems to have unlimited range of 360° around the sewing area.
By using the multiple awarded VETRON technology, the VETRON 5380 is the perfect addition for the production process and is suitable for the common use as flatbed or postbed sewing machine aswell.

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 …

Fast and precise setup of the machine by recall of a stored machine program

Easy to understand and intuitive programming concept

Program chain function to combine different production steps directly on one machine

User identification by USB-dongle to avoid access on machine settings - on demand

Stitch-in-stitch backtacking

Dynamic Process

Permanent measurement of material thickness

Constant sewing feet pressure reacting on material thickness

Sewing feet pressure reacting on sewing speed

Stitch length correction reacting on material thickness

Thread tension correction reacting on material thickness

Top feed stroke management via sewing speed with automatic  „cross seam function“

Process Reliability

User identification via USB dongle (activated via parameter)

Operator does not have access to basic parameters

Various access codes for Operator / Line Supervisor / Technican / Technical Supervisor (Administrator)

Operator can change sewing programs via scanner (option). The machine automatically adjusts to the preset sewing parameters (Stitch length, speed, thread tension, upper transport stroke, ruler distance ... etc.) on.

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.
