Does the summa have an optic eye for contour cutting?? I have the Roland and have never looked back...
I presume it does: OPOS is the contour feature (OpticalPOSitioning)Does the summa have an optic eye for contour cutting?? I have the Roland and have never looked back...
theCount,I will be ordering my plotter (cutter) next week and before I make the final decision I wanted to see if I could gather advice and info from people using either (or both) of the following models:
1. Summacut D60R
2. Roland GX24
Both are good plotters for entry level, but I would like to try and evaluate which machine is going to take me further by offering more flexibility.
Price, Support and Technical Specs for both are very similar (size, speed, accuracy etc) there are however a few differences
Any advice or Tips you can give me here will be most appreciated...
- Software seems to be a difference - is OPOS (summacut) better for contour cutting or the Roland software?
- The Summa comes with a Pen Holder (which sounds useful for testing design on paper) but I can´t seem to find anything about the Roland having this capability.
- The biggest difference seems to be the blades: the Roland has a better selection of 6 types of replacement and special blades, with offsets down to 0.175mm. The Summa only has 2 different blade types: standard; 45° - Offset 0,50mm and Sandblast 60° with 0.9mm!! offset. How does this blade offset affect the cutting characteristics (for T-Shirt uses) will I be able to cut thicker materials with finer details on the Roland or the Summacut?
Where are you located (Country, City, State)?i am also looking to buy a summacut d-60. i had one a couple years ago at a shop i worked at and now i am starting up on my own, but i cant seem to find a place to actually buy the cutter from. any help? please reply here or to my email at [email protected] asap. thank you.
Oh, well that explains it.I am in northern Indiana, USA
Perhaps the shop can tell you where they got theirs from to help you acquire one.thanks but no thanks. i wanted to know where i can get the summacut d60. if i wanted something else, like the d75-R which is almost $1000 more than the d-60, i would have asked for help getting that... anyone else know where i can get a summacut d60? i know you can get them because we had one at my shop a few months ago....
You're welcome and I'm glad to know you're enjoying your Summa D60!Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped me make my decision here... my Summa D60 is installed and running perfectly - doing just what I wanted it to do, namely cut fine and detailed designs. The Siser TS 1 Transfer Press is a big heavy SoB but solid, reliable and easy to use. Big thanks to everyone and especially Ms.Blue for your informative and helpful posts.
Good to know. As I run more jobs, I will step up the speed as long as my cuts remain fine.good choice.
if you have lots of small detailed stuff to cut use the turbocut function. it will cut alot faster.
i asked a summa rep once if it could somehow be bad for the cutter to have it allday cut on turbo and he said it makes no difference to the engine.
thanks for taking the time to answer my (old) post regarding the D60.The D60 was discotinued about a year ago. The Summa D75-R 30" model replaced it, while the price has increased the features have as well. It increased in size from a 23" cut to a full 30" cut and has our OPOS Optical Positioning System for contour cutting color graphics included. I'm available to answer any questions you may have.
