"The new sizes of flatbed systems enrich Summa's platform with advanced finishing solutions, especially within the textile industry,” said Geert Pierloot, Summa's product marketing manager.
“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.
“Within the world of large format digital printing, most common sizes of textile printers are equipped with a working width of 3.2 m to be able to print large rolls of textiles. Both new Summa flatbed cutters also cover a working width of 3.2 m, making them the ideal companion to process common, popular print sizes with utmost ease and accuracy.”
Both models are also suited to cut the increasingly popular board sizes of 3 m x 2 m. Additionally, the F3232 with its working area of 3.2 m x 3.2 m, 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. All existing tools and models within the F Series gamut are designed to fit each size of the flatbed range.
