Pfaff 110 Vision System

Equipped with Vision System, the sewing unit is predestinated for top-stitching partially perforated materials made of leather and PVC in the automotive interior sector. 

The intelligent Vision System, equipped with up to 4 cameras, among other things compensates tolerances that arise in the seam contour as a result of material shrinkage and tolerances when punching the perforation. It compares the image of a master part with the image of a part clamped in the sewing template. The complete seam design is then automatically corrected in the sewing program based on the individual measurement points. The machine achieves a maximum speed of 2,800 stiches/min with a maximum stitch length of 12 mm. Electromagnetic thread trimmer for upper and lower thread and upper thread monitor is standard equipment of the machine.
