Global Imaging Partners with Summa on Laser Cutting Machine
This summer, Global Imaging (PRINTING United Booth 7659), a leading distributor of grand-format digital printing equipment, announced their relationship with Summa (PRINTING United Booth 8841) to resell the Summa L3214 laser cutting machine.
Textile printing has been growing in the U.S. for almost a decade and has become the first choice for producing exhibit, trade show and POP displays. The need for a dedicated device that finishes textiles with a sealed edge has become part of the demand of the textile market. Until now, textile finishing has been done with additional cutting machinery or simple manual labor, using scissors or a hot knife. Neither of these solutions are clean, fast, cost-effective or scalable.
Summa has more than 20 years of experience in textile finishing and a proven track record of cutting some of the most difficult materials that can be thrown at them, such as four-way stretch Spandex. As they moved into grand format it was a natural fit for Global’s textile product portfolio.
Greg Lamb, CEO of Global Imaging, said, “When we curate new products for our portfolio, we consider how the products will affect the top-line revenue or bottom-line profits for our customers’ businesses. We felt that because of the cleanliness, the speed and the dedication to fabric, this product could dramatically lower the cost of textile finishing for our customers.”
