The importance of finishing

Summa Press Release / For immediate release 07/04/2017

In view of the upcoming Fespa Hamburg exhibition Summa would like to drawthe attention to the importance of finishing products into the overall workflow of the sign maker.

Efficiency, productivity and sustainability are indispensable features in the sign making market. However, to achieve a high-quality final product, you also need efficient finishing. Outsourcing finishing is very time-consuming and will delay the production process. Adding a one-fit-all finishing cutter to your print workflow is thus of infinite importance. Coordination of printing and cutting systems is unquestionably a key factor to assure an integrated and smooth workflow. This is precisely the point where Summa appears in the foreground and rightfully claims its existence! Summa offers customized finishing solutions to an extensive range of demanding applications. Whether it be roll-to-roll vinyl and paper finishing applications or plastic, cardboard, PVC, acrylic, wood, banner or textile, Summa’s highly flexible and reliable finishing systems can be tailored to handle any kind of substrates. Each time again Summa guarantees maximum productivity, a seamless workflow and satisfied customers.

ADC and HF router
Also the newly developed innovative products, the ADC and the HF Router add significant value to the overall working process. The ADC (Automated Depth Control) simplifies tool, knife or bit changes by means of accurate measurement and is available for all F Series units and tools of the tangential module. The HF (High Frequency) router provides smoother finishing of rigid substrates and less rapid wear of the bits, as well as higher processing speeds. Most solid boards, as well as wood, MDF, ACP and acrylics can be processed with the HF router. Both new products will be showcased at Fespa Hamburg, as well.
