Quaker Chroma Purchases Summa Laser Cutter
Summa America debuted the award-winning wide-format L3214 laser cutter in the U.S. during PRINTING United.
The L3214 covers a width of 3.2m (10' 5"), The cutting process works on-the-fly, which means printed textiles are constantly fed to the machine with edge-detecting technology, scanned in with the incorporated high-quality camera, and accurately cut with perfect sealed edges. These steps are happening simultaneously to ensure a continuous workflow and high productivity.
Live demos at Summa’s booth are showing three cutting techniques – contour cutting with markers, fixed size cutting with markers, and trace supported by Summa’s Vision technology.
Executives from Quaker Chroma flew in to Dallas to see a live demonstration of the L3214, purchasing the laser cutter.
Craig Tinkelman, CEO at Quaker Chroma, explains: “I have never seen a cutter processing jobs at such high speeds while maintaining its accuracy. We signed for the L3214 because it is truly a great machine with high business potential!”
“With the L3214 laser cutter, Summa eliminates companies’ struggles with slow conventional knife cutting machines in soft signage applications,” says Win Maes, Summa executive director.
The laser cutter is able to process a large variety of fabrics for applications such as flags, Silicon Edge Graphics (SEG) to fit in frames, banners, tote bags, sportswear, and fashion.
