Integrated workflows with print and cut solutions are enabling businesses to shorten lead times and offer a wider range of applications than ever before. Therefore, Summa is proud to announce that HP has validated Summa’s F Series flatbed cutters for the HP Latex R Printer Series. The printers and cutters complement each other perfectly, bringing customer workflows to the next level.
While obtaining stunning colours on rigid, or even flexible materials with the HP Latex R Printer Series, the finishing with Summa’s F Series precision cutters delivers the same level of quality. This enables businesses to combine the choice of material, design, colour results and cutting quality into excellent end products. HP states that the aim of the HP and Summa Partnership is to enhance the value proposition and competitive advantage of HP Latex and Summa with solutions for the E2E printing environment beyond the printer.
Summa’s Executive Director, Wim Maes: “This year, Summa accomplished its goal to improve the synergy with the large format digital printer market, by launching two large-format flatbeds matching the 3.2 m (10’ 5”) working width of printers perfectly. In combination with Summa’s GoProduce software, the F Series 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. Even more so, with the HP Partnership and validation for the F Series with the HP Latex R Printer Series, this pursuit of excellent synergy between printers and cutters has reached new heights.”
Meet short deadlines
Both the printer and the cutter are made to deliver the highest quality with optimum lead times. But in order to make a significant difference in the time needed to process the order, it is indispensable for both operations to be perfectly coordinated. This is exactly why collaborations, such as this print and cut solution, are so powerful to optimise workflows, save valuable time and deliver products that meet the needs of the customer in time.
Workflow versatility to the next level
A well-integrated workflow helps businesses to offer a wider range of applications. Since the materials printed on the HP Latex R Printer Series can be processed flawlessly on the Summa F Series, no application will be too bold a challenge to create. Always with the highest quality level in mind.
Find practical similarities such as the dimensions of rigid and flexible materials that fit on the flatbed cutters, as well as the types of material that the flatbed system can easily handle. This is possible thanks to high-quality modules that can house multiple tools to efficiently apply multiple cutting techniques in one single job. For example, paper-thin, thick materials, rigid and flexible materials have no secrets for Summa's flatbed cutters. With which, in turn, all kinds of applications are made such as stickers, posters, beach flags and advertising displays.

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 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, 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 Marketing 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. 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, 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.
