Laser Cutter Series

Back to Overview

ADVANCED LASER CUTTING OF PRINTED FABRICS AND TEXTILES

Our specialists in laser cutting technology have over 25 years of experience. The knowledge gained during this time, combined with market feedback led to further development and optimization of Summa's laser machines. Discover the L Series optimised for cutting printed fabrics and textiles.

 

Optimise your workflow with
laser cutting technology

Whether you are in the industry of fast fashionsportswear or technical textiles, the L Series serves as a perfect laser cutting system optimised for textile cutting.

The benefits of A Summa Laser Cutter

Summa laser cutting machines are developed to help optimizing workflows and to make them worth the investment by delivering:

  • Increased production capacity through automation and high laser acceleration
  • Ease of use through automated options and smart media handling
  • Business continuity through reliable long-life laser tube and high-quality electronics
  • Safe operations with the closed system and the extraction of fumes
  • Precise cutting through camera recognition, contactless cutting and sealed edges

 

 

Laser cutting software

The L Series range comes with powerful ApS-Ethos cutting software. The ApS-Ethos suite of cutting software is the result of more than 25 years of expert knowledge. The software is developed with the aim to create a range of software that is easy to use, yet extremely powerful. Its flexibility allows it to be tailored to suit the individual needs of a company. 

The ApS-Ethos Laser Cutting and Engraving software enable vector files to be imported or created before outputting to a Summa laser cutting machine, L Series, FB Series or GraphiXscan. Use automatic features to organize the layout of designs prior to outputting and assign material effects to the design to ensure accurate cutting.

Laser camera technology

The Summa laser cutting machines are equipped with unique camera technology, where you can choose which method is most suitable for your specific type of job. There are two types of camera available: the Vision Camera (standard on the L3214) and the Head Camera (standard on the L1810).

Vision Camera System
Contour Cut Vision Trace

The Vision Trace method - tracing the contours of the designs - is advised to use on the L1810 laser cutter and very convenient when cutting sportswear. No cutting file is needed which adds to the automation and ease of use and reduces downtimes considerably. The Vision Camera System is optional on the L1810 laser cutter.

 

Vision Camera System
Contour Cut Vision Marks

The Vision Marks method - using registration marks - is most beneficial on the L3214 laser cutter, for instance, to process soft signage jobs at fixed-size. The L3214 is standard equipped with the Vision Camera, enabling the use of both methods - Vision trace and Vision marks - depending on your job requirements.

 

Head Camera System
Registration marks

The head camera system is standard mounted on the L1810 laser cutters (side note: optional on the FB Series). This camera system uses registration marks to process cut-to-size, as well as contour cutting jobs. Increased accuracy and advanced nesting capabilities not only ensure a clean-cut but also reduce material waste substantially.

 

 


 

The game-changers in textile manufacturing

Laser cutters within the L Series are available in three models for which you can choose the power you need. These L Series models are optimised for cutting fabrics.
