Summa will showcase its various cutting technologies, focusing on the L1810 second generation laser cutter, showing highly productive processing of fabrics; the S1D60 roll cutter in combination with the Tray One sheet feeder for effective sheet and label cutting; as well as the F1612 with conveyor extension and F1832 with HDRS for automated and flexible workflows.
Another focus will be on the sustainable micro-factory with the L1810 laser cutter in cooperation with Klieverik, Greentex, Mimaki and Neenah Coldenhove. It is all about sustainable materials, processing in an environmentally-friendly manner and usage of the finished parts by a German eco-friendly designer label.
By using the Tray One sheet feeder on the S One S1D60 roll cutter model, users will be able to enhance automation, facilitate material handling and save a lot of time. This will not only benefit large volume industries but focuses equally on small volume businesses, such as copy shops and retailers. Workflows will thus be facilitated considerably, from copy to cut. The Tray One Sheet Feeder is only available on the Summa S1D60 roll cutter model.
The Summa F Series will be represented by the popular F1612 flatbed cutter with a small footprint that will be showcased together with the convenient conveyor extension. Processing cut designs much larger than the actual cutting are is a child’s play with the F1612 conveyor extension.
The large format F1832 flatbed model will be demonstrated in combination with the Heavy Duty Roll Support (HDRS). The HDRS allows a straight throughput of heavy banner material as well as light to non-stretchable wide textile rolls.
The sustainable micro-factory set-up proves the important share of each company in producing textiles sustainably. The company Greentex develops sustainable materials and is launching a special eco fabric for the micro-factory at FESPA. The design comes from Purazell, a start-up fashion label in Germany that is focused on sustainability.
First, the design is printed on transfer paper from Neenah Coldenhove by a Mimaki printer. In the next step, the print is transferred to the fabric, provided by Greentex, using a Klieverik transfer print calender. When the material is ready, it will be cut on the Summa L1810 laser cutter fast and accurately. Subsequently, each cut piece will return to the eco-labelled designer who turns the pieces into usable clothing.
These solutions will be showcased at FESPA, taking place from 31 May–3 June in Berlin.
