Summa S1 D140 FX 54"

Product Details

The Summa S1 D140 FX is a 54” vinyl cutter that has a slightly lower specification to rest of the S1 range but has a commensurately lower price point which for many will put this cutter at the top of their list.

What differentiates the FX?

On the FX models the only differentiators are:

  • Fixed pinch roller positions resulting in fixed material widths: 137.2 cm, 122 cm, 100 cm, 91.4 cm, 76,2 cm, 61 cm, 50 cm, 40 cm, 28 cm
  • A reduction from 600 gm cutting force to 400gm

Summa ranks the S1 D140 FX as an intermediate cutter and it still delivers the same advanced features of its older sister machine. It is equipped with the same OPOS sensor and advanced tracking that is the calling card of the One Series range. Engineering integrity, robustness and attention to detail are standard attributes to ensure this cutter will give years of reliable service.

Cutting applications:

  • Vehicle graphics
  • Flock templates
  • Retail window stickers
  • Reflective, holographic mirroring materials
  • Labels
  • Technical textiles
  • Traffic signs
  • Intricate small stickers

Key selling points of the S1 D140 FX:

1 Price

At nearly £1200 cheaper than the S1 D140 the saving makes a compelling case for customers in the market to buy a 54” cutter.

2 Engineering

  • The S1 D140 FX  incorporates Summa’s advanced tracking system which allows a complete roll to be cut up to 8 meters in length accurately without reloading.
  • It also features highly durable titanium coated grit rollers to ensure an extended operational life span.
  • With 400 grams of pressure over the cut knife it can cut the most intricate of shapes accurately with smooth cut lines.
  • The cutting head has also been engineered to allow for quick switched between blades of different sizes, plotting pens and poncing tools.
  • A class leading servo motor drive system enables the machine to perform at exceptionally high speed even on demanding curves.

3 Simplified work flow

A highly advanced OPOS (optical positioning sensor) sensor system has been developed to enhance productivity and automation

This Sensor can read from 4 – 128 marks at high speed allowing the operator to produce the finished product quicker than ever, even when cutting small items that require more accurate detection.

The sensor will read these marks from a wide range of materials and when using Opus barcodes coupled with Summa's built in MicroSprocket™ drive drum (which conditions the media as it advances to give spot-on tracking precision up to 8 metres) the operator can contour cut multiple jobs without having to make any adjustments, ultimately speeding up production and reducing costs.

4 Simple to operate

Central to the S1 D140  FX user friendliness is a simple and intuitive touch screen. It has been designed to allow users to initiate cutting in seconds. To avoid confusion all adjustable parts of the cutter that the operator may need to setup are coloured in bright blue for easy identification.

5 Increased productivity with advanced software

GoSign Cutting software is included which allows users tremendous flexibility over managing the cutters workflow and features:

  • Enhanced file compatibility – import from a range of files including DFX or PLT files
  • Job log functionality – track jobs and monitor productivity
  • Material manager – a material database that stores your most often used materials so you don’t have to keep reconfiguring settings.
  • Workflow automation – drag your cutting files into the hot folder ready to be sent to the cutter
