With this sturdy over seaming machine insoles are sewn to uppers. In relation to the conventional lasting method the Strobel-method saves quite a lot of material. With this machine leather or textiles up to a thickness of 7 mm can be sewn. Thereby the gathering device helps to sew in fullness of the upper. Optional equipment (different feed and front cups) enables the machine to manufacture children shoes or very delicate material. Even kits for string lasting (with strings up to 1,7 mm or up to 2,5 mm diameter) or for California-type shoes and a thread lubricator are offered.


With this heavy machine insoles are sewn to uppers. Even hard and stiff leather or textile material up to a total thickness of 8 mm can be manufactured easily. As both the feed cup and the front cup of this machine are driven, even bulky material can be sewn regularly. The differential feed (the speed of the front cup is adjustable while sewing up to 48% in comparison to the speed of the feed cup) and the gathering device enable to level up unwelcome distortion or to work in extra fullness even at bulky leather. Optional this machine can get equipped for California-style.
