The combination of revolutionary design and innovative engineering has led to the development of something quite special, extraordinary something, which will influence the future of the sewing machine. An impressive example for such a farreaching combination is the POWERLINE 2545 a line of machines, which represents a new generation of special high-speed sewing machines with triple feed (bottom, needle and alternating top feed) and vertical hook. Clear and precise functions with ergonomically arranged control elements are the outstanding features of this series, for which PFAFF won the Interzum Innovations-Award 2007 in the Best of the Best category. The machine achieves an equally high stitch quality on top-stitching work in the visible areas and on assembly seams in the non-visible areas flexibility which knows no boundaries in the automotive and home upholstery sectors. Top sewing results are guaranteed both on fine leather and on heavy upholstery materials. With the largest arm cl earance in its class, the machine guarantees excellent handling. Technical features, like the programmable multi-switch or the new winding assistant support the working flexibility and make the POWERLINE a multi-feature machine with excellent benefits. The fine tension of the surface signalizes power and dynamics. The attractive design, the trend-setting ergonomics and the unique service concept of the Powerline 2545 mark a revolutionary milestone in the 150 year old history of the sewing machine.
