  1. Boost your S Class 2 performance up to 40%

    Boost your S Class 2 performance up to 40%

    Even though the phrase "time is money" is almost as old as time itself, it still applies to small and big companies of today.  Summa, value your time and will continue researching every way to improve your workflow. Summa makes your dream come true and enables you to divide your job time almost in half thanks to the release of the G-Performance mode. This mode is specifically designed to enhance the speed/performance of digital finishing operations on the S Class 2 roll cutters up to 40%, which will save you precious time to spend on other things.

    Transform your S Class 2 cutter into a lean, mean, even faster-cutting machine than before with the G-Performance, no matter whether it be a cutter with tangential or drag knife technology or our smallest or largest cutter in the product range. However, speed is not the only advantage you will benefit from. Your S Class 2 cutter will be able to read registration marks, to achieve a perfect cut, even with print deformations, at an ever faster pace

    No matter how wide the substrate and/or machine, the advantages of the G-Performance will definitely show in production times. The G-Performance mode is available as free unlock on new machines (2018). However, even S Class 2 cutters, built before 2018, can experience the full benefits of the G-Performance mode as well. Especially within large industrial environments, this G-performance mode will prove its worth and give your overall workflow a serious boost.

    Make your dream a reality and release the G-Performance mode on your S Class 2 vinyl and contour cutter! Unlock your boost extension at www.summa.eu/g-performance!

    Not convinced? Have a look at a side by side comparison of two S Class 2 cutters, one with and one without the G-Performance mode.

    Why stop there?

    And while we're at it, Summa released even more features (for free!) to enhance the finishing experience with your Summa S Class 2 cutters. Check it out!

    Short Load

    This new functionality on the S Class 2 cutters ensures less material will be forwarded, so possible material obstructions are avoided. The fixed size of the autoload of the media is 80 cm.  Not only does the short load mode makes sure the material will not touch the floor or be hindered by obstructions, it also guarantees less waste of material, which contributes to the overall user-friendliness, the environment (less waste=less pollution) and your wallet!

    Dog Ear Function

    Thanks to the updated intelligence on the Summa S2 Series, dog ears (pleated corners) in the substrates will be avoided during loading. Before, the cutting head would immediately start on the right side of the media during loading, which could then lead to these pleated corners.  With the dog ear function, the head will first position itself on top of the media during loading and will position itself on the right side afterwards.  As a result, damaging the product will be avoided and a clean cut can be yours to admire!

    OPOS XY2

    OPOS has the unique ability to register multiple marks along a job.  With the OPOS XY2 function also the additional XY line at the end of the job will be read now, which will lead to more compensation possibilities in deformation and even more contour cut accuracy than before, especially when cutting large jobs.  No restriction, only unsurpassed accuracy, and impeccable precision!

    The new S Class 2 screensaver is more informative, which will enhance user-friendliness to the fullest. Moreover, instead of the Summa logo, tips will be shown to make sure ultimate efficiency will be reached during the job.

    About Hahnemühle

    There are very few companies worldwide that can be proud of such a long company history like Hahnemühle’s. Founded back in 1584 as a paper mill in South Lower Saxony’s Solling uplands, Hahnemühle developed – strictly according to the spirit of its founding fathers – into a customer-oriented and innovative manufacturing facility.

    It goes without saying that the products and manufacturing methods have changed to a certain extent since 1584. In the beginning, the product range solely comprised mould-made writing paper but later, artist papers and the Hahnemühle invented fine-art inkjet papers for digital print were added to the range. Furthermore, Hahnemühle papers have been used for decades in industrial production or manufacturing processes as well as in research laboratories. At the same time, several things have remained the same, such as our high quality standard that guarantees our customers the purest papers for art or technical applications. 

    Our paper technologists are proficient in their trade. With high-quality pulp and by using formulations that are partly several centuries old, they produce traditional artist papers, FineArt inkjet papers and speciality papers for industry and filtration. We are – in the positive sense – perfectionists and reliable partners for artists, technicians and scientists. We produce papers according to their demands, work jointly with them on improving these papers permanently and develop papers for new market segments.
