Every single one of you, working with printed or non-printed materials to cut and 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. GoProduce for the F Series has been the first software module within the GoSuite, which is designed to optimize the F Series users’ workflow.
Adding to the intuitive interface and modern look, 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. There are various default action sets in GoProduce to support your Summa workflow, such as the barcode automation (watch video), 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.
The material database is a vital key to the user-friendliness of the GoProduce software. It includes an extensive range of material types, the materials contain the cutting settings and tool data defined by Summa. These materials 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 includes a specific camera profile enabling you to perform back side cutting with smart edge detection.
Basically, there are two methods of back side cutting within GoProduce:
The flatbed cutters usually need an operator to select the right cutting file, then read the printed marks to register the correct position of the material and match the selected cutting file. With the barcode functionality, the cutter reads the printed barcode, indentifies the job and automatically retrieves the cutting file. In this file, all the necessary cutting data and tool selection can be stored thanks to GoProduce. The built-in camera of the flatbed scans the job automatically (or alternatively by hand scanner). See how it works in the video below:
The GoSuite sofware range is growing and Summa continues to develop new features and improvements. The GoSuite software platform is built to support you today and in the future, with many more software solutions to follow.
