Twin Workflow - Roll Cutter and Flatbed Cutter in Tandem
In the classic workflow, finishing jobs are carried out with a multifunction flatbed cutter. Its poly tool heads can control several different tools in alternation - e.g. cutting - creasing - drawing. This means that different workflows can be carried out one after the other on one cutter, allowing relatively flexible production.
The Twin Workflow* combines the strengths of a Summa S Class 3 series cutter and an F series flatbed cutter. This creates a twin workflow with two cutters that are perfectly matched to each other. Depending on the cutting process, the cutter that is best suited to the job in question is used. So instead of using a single cutter for the entire cutting job, the twin workflow splits the job between the two cutters. In this way, the individual strengths of both machines are fully exploited.
In practice, this means that you can cut (KissCut) your graphic designs on the cutting plotter using the OptiScout software. You then transfer the cut roll to the flatbed cutter and cut through it (ThruCut). In this way, you maximize your productivity and significantly accelerate your delivery times.
In combination with the high-end contour cutting solution OptiScout, a unique system is created for ThruCut, KissCut, but also FlexCut and Crease processing of printed roll material.
The Summa S Class 3 Series Roll Cutters
The S Class 3 tangential and drag knife cutters feature excellent engineering and advanced cutting technology. The S Class 3 series is designed to meet the needs of true professionals who demand nothing less than top-notch performance, pinpoint precision and unparalleled versatility in their work.
The Summa S Class 3 not only masters precision and versatility, but also proves to be a durable workhorse built to last. Thanks to the use of high-quality materials, it stands up to heavy use and delivers consistent, high-quality results day after day.
Three different heads are available for the S Class 3: the D Series, especially for drag knife technology, the T Series for tangential knife technology and the TC Series, which combines knife and fiber pen or knife and creasing tool.
Performance head functionality (TC model)
The S Class 3 tangential models are the most advanced cutters in the S3 series. Their high-precision cutting head can now apply up to 1000 g of cutting pressure. This allows laminated films, reflective materials and thicker sandblast substrates to be processed with ease.
True Tangential Cutting Technology - The advanced S Class 3 T Series tangential cutting heads feature a unique motor-driven blade that allows the cutters to achieve unparalleled accuracy and precision down to the smallest detail. True Tangential Cutting technology handles even heavy sandblast media, paint masks and reflective materials.
Dual head (TC model only)
The dual head operates with 2 tools:
The following 2 models of the Summa S Class 3 with camera are available: S75 (TC) / S160 (TC)
