Summa to showcase L1810 laser cutter for sportswear market at ITMA 2019

At its booth D154 in hall 3 at ITMA 2019, Summa will demonstrate the high productivity the 1.8 m wide laser cutter can provide for sportswear as well as a wide range of other applications.

Visitors to the stand will also experience the benefits of the L1810’s camera recognition with auto correct, contactless cutting, perfectly sealed edges and protective measures for environment and safety.  Summa’s advanced camera recognition technology, called Vision, will ensure a considerable increase in the level of productivity and support high production runs. The L1810 Vision is therefore perfectly suitable to be used in high-production environments where fast processing of printed textiles is essential. The Vision system works by instantly scanning the material without operator intervention, and automatically creates a cut vector without the need for cut files. Then, the L1810 will proceed with its unique on-the-fly-cutting method. This means the laser will continue to cut, even when the conveyor is moving and feeding the material. Idle periods will thus be reduced to a minimum.

Summa’s laser systems flawlessly meet the requirements of processing highly sensitive and easily distorted textiles, which is specific to sportswear, with optimum accuracy. Delivering a precise cut for athletic, technical or fashion textiles in a high production environment is made possible by, among other things, the non-contact method and the motorized de-reeler. The motorised de-reeler makes sure there is no fabric distortion while cutting by creating a loop in the material. This relaxes the material, reduces distortion and secures an accurate cut.

These features in the  L1810 were developed by Summa’s laser division CadCam Technology, where years of experience and proven technology meet innovation.

Besides processing of textiles, the L1810 laser system is also perfectly suited to process all sorts of raw materials, used in the composite industry, such as carbon fibres, composites, thermoset and thermoplastics.

ITMA 2019 takes place from the 20th until the 26th of June in Barcelona, Spain.
