Promatica buys Summa S2T-160 with takeup unit from Pozitive

Melbourne-based trade supplier of promotional products Promatica has purchased a Summa S2T-160 with takeup unit from Pozitive at the recent PacPrint tradeshow.  

At the event, Promatica general manager Levi Super told Sprinter that he is a first-time customer of Pozitive and that he was impressed by the build and quality of the machine. 

“We came to the show to look at another machine that we had our eye on but after seeing it, realised that it wasn’t for our needs. We walked around and came by the Pozitive stand. We had never heard of Summa prior to this but after seeing its potential were impressed by it,” he said.

“We came back the next day and made the deal within half an hour.

“It’s a great machine and we look forward to getting it installed next week. The speed of the machine, quality and design of the build, features and takeup roll impressed us. And the fact that it has the capacity for the workflow to go on overnight was amazing.”

Super also said that the Summa will be used for cutting out badges for vinyl labels and that the machine is a new piece of equipment that the business will be installing.

The Summa S2T-160 with takeup unit is a Summa S2 Series machine that delivers the longest contour cutting accuracy for printed graphics.

Some of its features include:

  • Summa’s exclusive MicroSprocket drive drum, coupled with powerful servo motors, that deliver accuracy. Media is conditioned as it advances to assure spot-on tracking precision.
  • The automated contour alignment system, Optical Positioning System (OPOS). The OPOS X sensor technology senses a minimum of four and a maximum of 128 marks on a wide range of materials. Some of its features include a fully-automated workflow, using OPOS barcodes, enabling the contour cut of multiple jobs without intervention.
  • Summa’s FlexCut adjustable feature that creates a perforated cut, allowing the material to retain the necessary rigidity to transport through the cutter while remaining easy to break apart into individual pieces.
  • After a job is finished, the system will roll up the artwork neatly and prepare the machine for the next unattended job. The integrated paneling feature splits long-length runs into shorter consecutive jobs.

Pozitive team member Michael Farnham said the features and benefits of the machine suited the needs of Promatica.

“It was a good experience for Pozitive to close the deal on the spot – although the process itself took a little over a day from the initial conversation to the signed confirmation the next day. We are looking forward to all the amazing work that Promatica will create on the Summa,” Farnham said.
