high-frequency-router-web

 High Frequency or Standard Router

The High-Frequency Routing Module is equipped with a high-frequency spindle and increased power output, which allows for higher processing speeds. Being perfectly balanced, the high-frequency spindle provides for a much smoother edge finishing of rigid substrates. The routing bit is pneumatically controlled and can be replaced manually in a fast and simple way. This maximizes the productivity of the cutter when processing, for instance, acrylics, wood and plastics.

Standard Router
The Standard Routing Module has a 1 kW motor, capable of handling most solid boards in the graphic and sign industry. Hard foam PVC, acrylic and aluminium covered foam boards as well as other materials, such as wood and MDF can be processed.

high-torque-rotary-module-web

High Torque Rotary Module

The High Torque Rotary Module on the Summa F Series is driven by an electronic motor and is capable of handling all kinds of textiles. Thanks to extra rotational power, the HT RM is also able to cut tougher and thicker substrates, such as banner material.


In general, vacuum tables have less grip on textiles. However, the Rotary Knife produces minimal horizontal forces, ensuring the material stays in place. Consequently, extremely porous material can easily be processed with the High Torque Rotary Module.
