than just an industrial sewing machine
5700 // 5710

Side airbag sewing machine for documented seams - with triple transport

The VETRON 5700 // 5710 was designed as a quality assurance system for safety-related seams in the automotive industry.
It guarantees the precise control and documentation of seams, which serve as the predetermined breakage point of the reference seam when the side airbag is triggered. Each stitch, needle and bobbin thread in the docu seam is measured by the docu system and monitored according to the corresponding specifications.
The 5700 // 5710 is thus an important link in quality assurance within the production chain.

Field of applications

Side airbag documented seams

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 …

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.
