86 • November 2015 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S Product Review FLATBED CUTTING SYSTEM Summa, Seattle, Washington, introduces the F2630, a flatbed cutting- and-finishing system that is not just big, it's a whopping 75 percent larger than the state-of-the-art flatbed cutter the company introduced four years ago. It's the largest cutter Summa has ever created. With the launch of the affordably priced F2630, Summa solid- ifies its reputation as one of the world's most respected and trusted manufacturers in the area of wide-format finishing. With a cutting area measuring 265 cm x 305 cm (104" x 120"), the F2630 cutter will allow sign mak- ers and other print professionals to process ever-larger media (boards, sheets or rolls) faster, more easily and more accurately. The wider working area also allows two media rolls to be placed side-by-side on the optional roll-support sys- tem for simultaneous processing. The work surface for the F2630 has been split into 12 automatically controlled vacuum zones to firmly hold materials in place—without having to activate the entire work- space. Whatever size material is in use, the vacuum pump automati- cally resizes the suction area to match.
