Summa launches 3.2 m flatbeds for the textile market
Summa Press Release / For immediate release 29/11/2018
Summa, a leading manufacturer of high-end cutting plotters, proudly presents two new sizes of their finishing flatbed systems. The F3232 and F3220 are based on the proven technology of the Summa F Series. Through the expansion of the flatbed series, Summa strives to improve the synergy with the large format digital printer market and to meet the needs of their customers. The new flatbeds are expected to be ready for shipment in February / April 2019.
Fully equipped for the textile market
Within the world of large format digital printing, most common sizes of textile printers are equipped with a working width of 3.2 m (10’ 5”) to be able to print large rolls of textiles. Both new Summa flatbed cutters, the F3232 and F3220, also cover a working width of 3.2 m (10’ 5”), making them the ideal companion to process common, popular print sizes with utmost ease and accuracy.
The matching working area sizes of the textile printer and Summa’s new finishing cutter sizes will lead to a print and cut workflow, fitting seamlessly into each other and offering endless solutions to the flourishing textile market.
Geert Pierloot, Summa’s Product Development Manager, points out: “The new sizes of flatbed systems enrich Summa's platform with advanced finishing solutions, especially within the textile industry. Together with the recent launch of a more powerful High Torque Rotary Module (HT RM), both the F3232 and F3220 are the ideal workhorses to serve the textile market in the processing of all sorts of mesh fabrics, flags, and banners."
Processing large board material in a flash
However, not only the textile market will benefit from Summa's two new sizes of flatbed finishing systems. Then both flatbed sizes are also perfectly suited to cut the increasingly popular board sizes of 3 m x 2 m (9’ 10” x 6’ 6”).
Additionally, the F3232 with its working area of 3.2 m x 3.2 m (10’ 5” x 10’ 5”), has the inclusive feature: Summa’s Tandem Mode. This feature will increase productivity of the customer’s workflow by using the front zones and rear zones alternately. The Tandem Mode will be most beneficial when processing board sizes of 1.5 m x 3 m (4’ 11” x 9’ 10”).
All existing tools and models within the F Series gamut are designed to fit each size of the flatbed range, the F3232 and F3220 sizes inclusive. This ensures the highest versatility to process all kinds of material and offer numerous high-end solutions to the sign making, textile, and digital print industries.
