Cutting plotter manufacturer Summa, who recently acquired CadCam Technology and GS UK, has launched two new sizes of its finishing flatbed series, both of which are aimed at the textile market.

“The F3232 and F3220 are based on the proven technology of the Summa F Series,” explained the company. “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.”

According to Summa, the most common size for large format digital textile printers is 3.2m, and so the new flatbed cutters both have a working width of 3.2m. Geert Pierloot, Summa’s product marketing manager, said: “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, 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.”

All existing tools and models within the F Series gamut are designed to fit each size of the flatbed range, including the F3232 and F3220.

The new flatbeds are expected to be ready for shipment around February/March/April 2019.
