Successful launch: Router for F1612

Summa Press Release / For immediate release 11/10/2012

The first installations of Summa’s F1612 flatbed with its brand new router module, announced earlier this year, took place this month and was welcomed with great enthusiasm.

This module has a 1 kW motor, capable of handling most used solid boards in the Graphic and Sign Industry: hard foam PVC, acrylic and aluminium covered foam boards. The module is compatible with the F1612’s existing installations. It fits on the modular head. It can easily be mounted when required or dismounted when other modules or tools need to be installed.

The userfriendly software, SummaFlex, integrates the Summa table perfectly into the print&cut workflow with camera support. Assigning the right tool for the job is a child’s game and media libraries can keep track of the settings for the different materials.

With the availability of yet another tool for the F1612 flatbed Summa is proud to offer an even more versatile and competitive product on the sign-making market all over the world. Whether it be thin foils or 25mm thick boards, the F1612 can handle it all, making the F1612 the perfect companion for the creative Signmaker.

The new tool has already been exhibited throughout Europe at Sign UK, Viscom Milan, Viscom Paris and will shortly be displayed at Viscom Germany and in Istanbul.
