bernette 62 AIRLOCK

The coverstitch machine with easy air threading

The bernette 62 AIRLOCK is the coverstitch machine of the b60 series. The automatic air threader makes threading the looper thread child's play. The machine has 4 coverstitches and 3 chainstitches and can be used for countless applications, with which different fabric types – stretchy fabrics in particular – can be sewn perfectly. The presser foot can be lowered and temporarily raised with the knee lifter, leaving both hands free to guide the fabric. The slide-on table and matching coverstitch insert increase the sewing area and provide sufficient space for large projects. Thanks to the 5 LEDs, the large working area is brightly illuminated.

Automatic air threader

Threading the looper has never been easier and quicker thanks to the automatic air threader. The looper can be threaded with a simple push of a button.

5 LEDs in the needle and working area

The well-lit workspace of the bernette 62 AIRLOCK eases sewing as well as threading of the looper and needles. The 5 LED lights facilitate precise and accurate work.

Lots of space thanks to the large working area (130 mm)

The 130 mm space right of the needle gives coverstitching another dimension. The large working area is ideal for leading and catching heavy sewing projects in front and behind the needle and gives you the space for all tasks in the needle and looper area.


Sewing tubular projects such as cuffs, legs and necklines will be easy thanks to the freearm.

Super-large slide-on table

The easy-to-attach and included slide-on table makes sewing and fabric guiding even more comfortable, especially for large sewing projects. The matching coverstitch insert additionally extends the sewing area and closes perfectly with the slide-on-table. This allows the fabric to glide smoothly over the large rounded working area.

Knee Lifter

Use the supplied knee lifter to position the fabric comfortably under the presser foot with both hands. Simply push the knee lifter to the right with your knee and the presser foot is lowered or temporarily raised.
