Summa is partnering with Caron Technology S.r.l. to offer a new expansion to its L Series laser cutters: the Caron cradle feeder. The combination of a Summa laser cutter and a Caron cradle feeder helps create an automatic cutting workflow that will make textile production more efficient while retaining the highest level of quality.


The Caron cradle feeder is designed to facilitate and speed up the loading and changing of the media on the Summa L1810 laser cutter. The system is designed to make the process as effortless as possible for a single operator.

The Caron cradle feeder features

  • Easy and ergonomic loading and switching of the media, as the feeder being able to tip down towards the operator.
  • No need for a media core holder. Place the media without a core holder in the feeder.
  • Tensionless feeding at higher levels.
  • Reducing media waste as the pre-feed distance is decreased to 10 cm.
  • Special belts are installed to optimally handle elastic fabrics.
  • The feeder can handle rolls with a weight of up to 100 kg
  • The max. roll diameter is 80 cm, and it handles a media width of 180 cm.

Theo Van Bruggen, Business Development Manager for Summa’s Laser cutting solutions says, “The Caron cradle feeder is a powerful addition to our laser cutters. The customer benefits are great and are not limited to efficiency but also include ease of use, precision and less material loss. Customers can, therefore, take their workflow to an even higher level and meet their clients' high requirements.”
