Bernette Funlock 48
The Bernette 48 is the top model of the Funlock series and is a combination of an overlocker and a coverstitch machine.
It has a total of 23 stitches: 15 overlock stitches, 3 coverstitches, 4 combo stitches and 1 chain stitch, overlock stitches with a stitch width of up to 7 mm, coverstitches with stitch widths of 2.8 or 5.6 mm and combo stitches with a stitch width of up to 10 mm. Colour-coded thread paths make threading easier and in the needle area, a manual threader helps to threading the needles. The lower looper and chain looper have a mechanical threader. The knife is operated from below, which not only ensures a cleanly cut edge, but also safe handling, and it can be adjusted comfortably with one hand. The bright LED light provides a well-lit sewing and threading area. The bernette Funlock 48 has a sewing speed of up to 1300 stitches per minute.
A wide range of stitches for beautiful stitching and seams
Your bernette Funlock 48 has a wide range of stitches: whether you require safety seams or edges with overlock stitching, coverstitches, stitches such as super stretch for highly elastic materials, flat seams, roll seams, roll hems or chain stitching – the possibilities with your bernette Funlock 48 are almost limitless.
Threading made simple
If you follow the colour-coded threading paths of the bernette Funlock 48, threading is very straightforward. A separate needle threader and looper threading mechanism also make this easier.
Large working area for large sewing projects
With its 87 mm working area, the bernette Funlock 48 provides plenty of space for larger sewing projects. Another highlight is the bright LED light, which ensures that the area underneath the needle is always well-lit.
High sewing speed for efficient operation
The bernette Funlock 48 allows straight lines of sewing to be carried out very quickly. With a sewing speed of up to 1300 stitches per minute and precise stitches, sewing projects take shape in the shortest possible time.
