    Need Help Summa D60R

    Thanks for the reply and additional info. If your material is indeed 1mm thick, that would be just under 40 mil thick and the D60 is only capable of cutting materials up to 30 mil, even with the thick materials blade. I think this is one of those situations where you're trying to do something...

    Need Help Summa D60R

    Good morning, How thick is the sandblast stencil you are trying to cut? Most companies I work with that cut sandblast stencil use the more powerful tangential cutters which are designed to cut and track heavier/thicker materials. Also, as was previously mentioned, you will need to use the...

    Summa S2 T160 cut off sheet problems

    Hi All, Just wanted to clarify that the S2 D Series DOES have the automatic cut off knife just like the S2 T Series so you could use that feature on the S2 D Series if you wanted to. The new S One D Series model does not have the cutoff knife so if you're referring to that when you say...

    What is the real world benefits of the OPUS-CAM

    The cutter comes with a 15' USB cable so 20' with a booster/repeater should be fine. I wouldn't go much longer than that, though, to avoid any communication issues sending files to the machine. Another thing to note is that you have to run the Camera Control software in the background with the...

    What is the real world benefits of the OPUS-CAM

    The OPOS Cam has faster mark recognition compared to the OPOS X sensor(1 second per mark versus 4-5 seconds with the sensor) and is able to detect registration marks more consistently on materials with high reflectivity or mirrored finish. The OPOS Cam models do need to be connected via USB...

    Summa D60U Windows 10

    What cutting software are you using to send files to the D60U? If you are using Winplot you may need to change your port selection in the cutter setup menu to the correct USB port. This is especially important if your new S One D75 is also connected via USB as well. You can use Summa Cutter...

    Hi Tracy, One of the Summa S2T75(30") cutters would work well for this application. The machine has a dual servo drive system to work with heavier films and should work well with the engineer grade reflective materials that you will need to cut. We have special pricing for Signs101 members on...

    Substance cutting graphtec or summa?

    Hi Danielle, One of our clients recently put the S2 T Series through all its paces trying to cut this material and unfortunately the 21 mil stock just won't cut consistently on the S2 T Series. It's a really heavy material that is difficult to track and while the S2 has enough force to cut it...

    Need Help Summa S160 T Series: Dual Head?

    Hi Logan, I received your email and sent you a reply. I checked inventory and we do have the dual head assembly kits in stock if you wanted to go that route. Like others mentioned above and I did as well in my email, when you install the dual head you lose OPOS so you wouldn't be able to do...

    Looking for a Summa D140 or D160 plotter

    Good morning, We may be able to help out. Did you have a certain budget in mind and were you strictly looking for a used machine or would a new machine at a great price be something you might consider? Also, just to make sure the D140/160 will be the best fit for your needs, what sorts of...

    Need Help Summa F1612

    The ADX models from American Rotary would be a very good choice. You can hardwire directly to the machine or install a plug, either way. As for the RIP software, Onyx would be a good option to facilitate the barcode workflow but you would still need to upgrade the GoProduce to add barcode...

    Summa F1612 - Cuts are consistently off in one direction

    That's simply not a true statement and we have successfully installed several hundred of these flatbeds all over the country. Our team trained Summa's technicians originally and know these flatbeds better than anyone(we used to own and operate Summa and developed the F-Series technology). We...

    S Class - how many pinch rollers do you need?

    If your accuracy issues are being caused because the material is flexing/puckering, then yes, adding the extra rollers will keep the material down flatter and reduce the gap distances between the rollers and your cuts should be more accurate. They will also help to prevent the knife from...

    Summa Gosign

    Just wanted to confirm that the OPOS Cam cutters still require a USB connection regardless of whether you are using the new GoSign software or not. The GoSign software does have a new user interface that has a material manager with customizable tool action sets so you can define what types of...

    S Class - how many pinch rollers do you need?

    The accuracy shouldn't be affected by adding additional pinch rollers in the middle(the middle rollers have half the pressure of the outer rollers and the outer rolls are primarily responsible for material tracking), however your minimum cut width does increase by adding each roller by about...
