Summa demonstrates cutting-edge and sustainable solutions at Fespa 2022!

The countdown for the next Fespa event is in. This year all industry leaders will be gathering in Berlin from the 31st of May to the 3rd of June. Although a little bit of caution is still in place, Summa is convinced the time is right to show new products and cut possibilities to the crowd at its booth C48 in Hall 3.2. Admittedly, there is no better venue to do this than at Fespa Berlin whilst experiencing businesses that come into a forward motion of aspiration, innovation and growth.

During the 2022 Fespa edition, Summa will be focusing on:

  • The L1810 2nd gen laser cutter, showing highly productive processing of fabrics
  • The S1D60 roll cutter in combination with the Tray One sheet feeder for effective sheet and label cutting
  • The F1612 with conveyor extension and F1832 with HDRS for automated and flexible workflows
  • Sustainable micro-factory with the L1810 laser cutter in cooperation with Klieverik, Greentex, Mimaki and Neenah Coldenhove. It is all about sustainable materials, processing in an environmentally-friendly manner and usage of the finished parts by a German eco-friendly designer label.

Level-up production with Summa’s L1810 2nd generation laser cutter
Last year during Fespa, Summa pre-launched the 2nd generation of the L1810 laser cutter built based on years of research and further development of earlier products. This laser cutter is especially suited to process all kinds of textiles, such as sportswear, dye sublimation clothing, as well as all kinds of raw materials used in the composite industry.

Various cutting techniques can be used on the L1810 2nd gen, allowing you to match the output of your printer with your finishing capacity. Find your ideal cutting workflow here, based on production volume and the application that needs to be cut.

Effective sheet processing with the Tray One sheet feeder
By using the Tray One sheet feeder on the S One S1D60 roll cutter model, you will be able to enhance automation, facilitate material handling and save a lot of time. This will not only benefit large volume industries but focuses equally on small volume businesses, such as copy shops and retailers. Workflows will thus be facilitated considerably, from copy to cut.

Note: the Tray One Sheet Feeder is only available on the Summa S1D60 roll cutter model.

Flexible and automated cutting workflows with Summa's F Series models
The Summa F Series will be represented by the popular F1612 flatbed cutter with a small footprint that will be showcased together with the convenient conveyor extension.  Processing cut designs much larger than the actual cutting are is a child’s play with the F1612 conveyor extension and an absolute must-have for companies that want to offer a broad gamut of signage applications.

Also the large format F1832 flatbed model will be demonstrated at the show in combination with the Heavy Duty Roll Support (HDRS). The HDRS allows a straight throughput of heavy banner material as well as light to non-stretchable wide textile rolls.

Rethink business with sustainable micro-factory
In the textile industry, there are still many steps to be taken in the field of sustainability. It is therefore important to raise awareness and give everyone involved insights into where the difference can be made. Because when there is awareness, we can work together to reduce waste.

This is exactly what we can do in the sustainable micro-factory. This setup proves the important share of each company in producing textiles sustainably. The company Greentex develops sustainable materials and launches a special eco fabric for the micro-factory on Fespa. The design comes from Purazell a start-up fashion label in Germany that is focused on sustainability.

About the process in the micro-factory initiative
First, the design is printed on transfer paper from Neenah Coldenhove by a Mimaki printer. In the next step, the print is transferred to the fabric, provided by Greentex, using a Klieverik transfer print calender. When the material is ready, it will be cut on the Summa L1810 laser cutter fast and accurately. Subsequently, each cut piece will return to the eco-labelled designer who turns the pieces into usable clothing.

We hope this micro-factory setup will persuade the public during Fespa, so other companies also take up de challenge and start rethinking business in the function of a greener climate.

Come and visit the Summa booth C48 in Hall 3.2, mingle with the Summa Team and witness the micro-factory and other demonstrations on a wide range of Summa’s cutting portfolio.
