Summa's Industry-Leading Features
The Summa F Series is loaded with incredible productivity and safety features to support and fit right into your workflow environment. Features include advanced safety sensors, automated barcode readers and depth control, the newly redesigned GoProduce software, and much more.
Versatile Multifunctional Cutting Head
The multifunctional head can hold up to three modules at one time. The central unit houses a positioning laser and an integrated camera system for fast and accurate contour-cutting mark recognition.
Powerful Tangential Module
Offering a vertical force of 10 kg and corresponding to a wide range of matching tools. Each tool has a barcode identifier, ensuring automatic recognition and parameter settings.
Intuitive GoProduce Software
The software GoProduce is developed to handle jobs easy and efficiently. The modern interface with improved navigation enables users to find and operate functions as quickly and intuitively as possible.
Advanced Safety System
The advanced Safety System, delivered with all F Series models, guarantees a safe work environment and is compliant to worldwide health and safety requirements. Thanks to the placement of the system on the top beam, the F Series can be accessed easily, which results in higher production efficiency.
Barcode Automated Workflows
The barcode automatically identifies the job to obtain the necessary cutting data from the computer. The built-in camera scans the job automatically or by a hand scanner, depending on the selected workflow.
Automatic Depth Control
The ADC automatically sets the knife depth and the orientation of the tool. The tip of the knife or bit is measured accurately and the down position of the tool is set to table's level, guaranteeing a flawless cut. Both the ADC left and ADC right is included with every new F Series flatbed cutter.
Media Handling Has Never Been Easier
- The advanced safety system guarantees a safe work environment. Convenient placement on the top beam ensures easy accessibility of the flatbed to remove cut parts.
- Media advance clamps hold the material down while pulling it forward in order to work continuously in panels or multiple jobs.
- The vacuum pump with sound absorber holds the material in place during the job while the selector adjusts the vacuum automatically to match the working area.
- The conveyor belt & roll support allow the cutting and creasing of large lengths of flexible material to large production runs.
- The working area can be divided into two separate zones, a cut only zone and an operator zone where materials can be removed with ease.
- The optional heavy-duty roll support allows a straight throughput of heavy banner material, non-stretchable wide textile rolls and lightly stretchable materials onto the wide-format flatbed sizes F1832, F3220 and F3232.
