Warwickshire-based Sticky Media Signs and Graphics made a key investment in its in-house finishing capability at Sign and Digital UK 2014 with the purchase of a Summa F1612 flatbed cutter from City and West End Solutions (CWE).
Branding solutions provider Sticky Media focuses on a number of printing applications including event builds, shop fitting, vehicle graphics, outdoor and indoor promotion, long and short term signage, event work and display systems. Managing Director Charlie Bukovets says, “We’ve had a very productive first quarter to 2014, during which we expanded our range of HP digital latex printers so we can now print up to 3m wide and quicker too, to give us the leading edge against our competitors with compelling service.
“The flexibility and capacity of the Summa F1612 flatbed cutter will enable us to produce a diverse range of branding solutions and keep up with ever-more challenging and sophisticated client briefs. We hope the new Summa in conjunction with our HP Latex printers will also help us expand further into creating anything from a huge outdoor screen for a theme park, through to large P.O.S projects for major car dealership networks, with the superior contour cutting and print quality.”
The Summa was installed a couple of weeks ago and according to Charlie is 'working well for us straight away and hasn’t stopped'.
CWE Managing Director Doug Gilbertson adds, “The Summa flatbed cutter is the perfect partner for a HP Latex printer. Together they really expand any print provider’s range of indoor and outdoor applications to meet the demands of today’s customers.”
The Summa F series flatbed cutting tables are capable of cutting sheet and rigid materials as well as roll stock up to 165cm wide. Up to three tools can be inserted at any one time, and the automatic tool recognition, combined with digital and mechanical depth and pressure control, ensures precision cutting on a wide variety of materials. The drag module and Summa’s revolutionary integrated camera system guarantees fast and accurate contour cutting of printed flexible or rigid substrate materials.
