Software matching the hardware is of unseen importance to enable smooth workflow and efficient production. Our Summa R&D department is, therefore, constantly optimizing our in-house software modules. Find out about the benefits of the new software release 1.10 for your Summa F Series flatbed cutter. We recommend users to update their software and start to benefit from the following new features, among others:
Every single one of you, working with printed or non-printed materials to cut/finish, knows how vitally important software is to the usability and productivity of your hardware. This is not just a matter of integrating your print and cut workflow. Also, the presence of an intuitive interface, easy navigation and intelligent features help the operator to handle jobs more efficiently.
Summa recognizes the importance of software that is fully tailored to the hardware. To underline the importance, Summa developed its very own software platform entirely in-house: GoSuite. The first software module within this platform, available as from today, is called GoProduce, which is designed to optimize the F Series users’ workflow.
At first sight, you might think that it is only the intuitive interface with a modern look that makes the GoProduce software unique. However, one of the true strengths of GoProduce are the straightforward action sets, enabling the operator to handle variable jobs in a natural, trouble-free and automated way. In the action sets, various Summa workflows, such as the barcode automation, are ready to be used at a click of a button. To further enhance flexibility, you can adjust many of these action sets to your hand and your needs.
Besides these time-saving features, GoProduce has even more to offer you:
The material database is a vital key to the user-friendliness of the GoProduce software. It includes an extensive range of material types defined by Summa, which can be adapted to your specific needs at all times. The database ensures a smart collaboration between jobs, materials and on-site tools. The material manager works with pre-defined methods, meaning that you only need to choose the material you want to process and the material manager itself automatically chooses the correct tool and its settings to process it with.
Back side cutting is especially useful when cutting cardboard boxes in order not to damage the print and in order to ensure the print is located at the outside of the box. GoProduce 1.10 introduces a new camera profile enabling you to perform back side cutting with smart edge detection.
Basically, there are two methods of back side cutting within GoProduce:
Within the method ‘back side cutting with edge detection’ there are 3 modes for Sheet Consistency available:
The GoProduce software is standard included with every F Series purchase. In case, you are a user of a Summa F Series machine already, you can download a 30-day trial version to explore the many possibilities of GoProduce here. In case you are in possession of the GoProduce software already, you can view tutorials to optimize your GoProduce skills here.

So, Go and Produce incredible creations in a most efficient and straightforward way with the software, perfectly tailored to your hardware thanks to Summa GoProduce, part of the GoSuite software platform. The GoSuite software platform is built to support you today and in the future, with many more software solutions to follow.
