In the signs and exhibition graphics market, a vinyl cutter is a must.
The Summa roll-to-roll cutters are considered to be industry leaders in this market and here at Papergraphics we fully support that view. From a customer and a technician’s point of view, easy-build set up and configuration is critically important in order to have the machine up and running as quickly as possible so that production time can be maximised. Onyx Thrive software offers full support for Summa cutters and as a result, they are often supplied alongside HP Latex or Epson SureColor printers and Onyx Thrive.
Many people take the view that a cutter is a simple device that ‘just cuts vinyl’, yet there is so much more to it than that.
Here at Papergraphics, and as champions of the Summa Cutter we also offer training programmes that have been fine-tuned to cover print and cut techniques, and we firmly believe that the training offered by Papergraphics' experts is second-to-none.
Looking towards the future, and appreciating the technical precision of this exceptional piece of equipment, Papergraphics has invested in optimising our vinyl range to make it 100% compatible with Summa cutters. Outstanding media and precision equipment are the perfect companions to Onyx software and the wide-format printers in our range.
- S2 T Series offers a true tangential cutter rather than emulated tangential .... giving increased downforce & more accurate cuts
- Great optical camera that works on a variety of different medias and is able to pick up different coloured cut marks
- SummaCut D120 & D140 now have ethernet connectivity (the Summacut series used to be just USB which was annoying - All S2 models have ethernet connectivity)
- Automatic barcode reading to select the correct cut path file
- Very easy & intuitive setup & configuration via the provided software
- The SummaCut D series interface on the machine is not particularly user-friendly
- Take-up basket isn't the best and can lead to media skew
- The robustness of the top could do with being strengthened ... one of the common problems we get called out for is the top section bending from people leaning on it, which leads to cutting & feed issues

- Traffic Signage
- Vehicle Graphics
- Wall Graphics
