The Fespa Global Summit 2014 took place in Munich from the 20th until the 23th of May and welcomed many industry leaders of the digital wide format community. The event owes its unsurpassed success to the overarching concept which sets creativity free because this is where technical innovations from different areas come together with one global goal: the support of the signmaker on a worldwide basis.
Summa seized this opportunity and displayed their renowned range of products at their booth. A multitude of applications with strong growth potential were shown and various kinds of media were cut with the multiple quick-change cutting tools of the flatbed cutting table: F1612: corrugated cardboard, foamboards, vinyl, rigid paper composite board, plexi etc. Thanks to the F1612 Booster Pack a significant overall performance improvement of Summa’s flatbed systems is realized by optimizing the motor management of the table and modules and at the same time minimizing waiting times. New load procedures and easier tool handling are a few of the many improvements covered by the F1612 Booster Pack. Any F1612 can be upgraded with this Booster Pack by simply upgrading the firmware and software.

Summa also demonstrated the successor to their renowned thermal transfer/printer: DC5(sx) at the Fespa show. In the market of the printing technology, Summa DC Series reigns supreme. The Summa DC Series deliver customer ready prints with no need to dry or laminate. There are no VOC exhaust or noxious fumes that could entail any health risk. Resin ribbon printing may last outdoor for up to 5 years without lamination. One single machine will deliver durable full colour and accurate contour cut graphics with the ability to cut completely through the material. The new DC5 printer/cutter has a variety of performanceenhancing features including more media widths, an Ethernet port and a new user interface.
