FlexCut is an included feature that is available on all Summa vinyl plotters, the S One Series and the S Class 2 Series. This functionality is developed to add more flexibility to your production flow. Keep your cut material together with FlexCut while you can cut through simple designs in the media, without damaging your roll plotter.
How it works
By alternating between cutting through the media and half-cutting the vinyl, the Summa vinyl plotter creates small media "bridges". These bridges allow the cut media to stay together.
With these small bridges and the intelligence behind a Summa vinyl plotter, you can cut a whole row or roll of designs. What's more:
And if these benefits would not be enough yet, as an added bonus, the FlexCut vinyl roll can easily be transported because the cut designs remain together while the media’s rigidity is maintained.
You can use FlexCut today by following these straightforward actions:
Prepare your cut file by indicating what need to be FlexCut, you can do this by using a blue colour, the red lines will be regular cut.
This method enables the GoSign software to detect the difference between the data that needs to be FlexCut and the data that needs to be regular cut. GoSign software is Summa's own cutting software tailored to the range of Summa's vinyl cutters. The software is included with every Summa S One and S Class 2 Series.
The software will send the data that needs to be contour cut first. Then, it will activate FlexCut in order to alternate between cutting through and partially cutting through. While doing so, it will create an easy tear-off line.
It is worth to try it out with your cutter!
