Summa releases new L1810 laser cutting system for textile market


Summa nv has introduced its first laser cutter  - the L1810, bringing advanced laser cutting technology to benefit the sportswear, apparel, swimwear, dye sublimation garments and technical textile markets. 

Set to be distributed locally through Pozitive, the new L1810, with its 1.8 m wide flatbed, is the first laser cutter introduced by Summa since the acquisition of CadCam Technology (CCT). It is part of the Summa L Series and equipped with proven laser technology, yet with enhanced features. 

“Pozitive has a long association with the sportswear and textiles markets, supplying sublimation printers and supplies for over 15 years,” says Philip Trumble, Managing Director of Pozitive.

“This leap forward by Summa to provide a productive, reliable and safe cutting system dedicated to textile markets is not only exciting, but exactly what is needed to keep Australian manufacturers competitive against goods produced overseas where labour rates are considerable lower,” he adds.

The L1810 laser cutter is especially suitable to cut textiles, such as sportswear, dye sublimation garments and all kinds of raw materials used in the composite industry. All of these substrates are part of the wide variety of materials, which can be cut on Summa’s advanced L1810 laser cutting system.

The optional Vision system, the L1810 Vision, is well suited for use in high-production environments, demanding fast processing of printed textiles to achieve more throughput in less time; and maintaining Summa’s high-end finishing quality.

“Focused on the textile market, this launch is an important step for Summa. A number of reasons convinced us that laser cutting is the best way to cut sportswear and apparel and we are ready to show the advantages, such as increased productivity, ease of use, cut accuracy and automated features, to the market. The development of this first Summa branded L1810 laser cutter is a powerful product to start with,” says Wim Maes, Executive Director at Summa.

“With the dedication and expertise on board, Summa continues to excel as a supplier of high-performance cutting and finishing solutions, broadening its portfolio in a growing number of markets. The introduction of the L1810 laser cutter is an ideal stepping stone to also build a reputation of a trusted partner in the textile industry. The broad spectrum of Summa’s cutting solutions, offering exceptional cut quality, versatility and productivity will perfectly serve the textile industry, just as it has been serving the sign and digital market to date,” adds Wim.
