Fabri Sport needed a reliable cutting machine to eliminate manual labour and better streamline their cutting workflow for cutting flex foils to print onto sports jerseys. With the purchase of Summa’s new S One roll cutter, they found what they were looking for.
Fabri Sport, based in The Netherlands, specialises in providing (sports) organisations with all sorts of promotional and customised items, such as T-shirts, bags, stationery, power banks, drink cans and so on.
Within a couple of months after the purchase, the positive impact of the S One roll cutter on the company’s workflow is crystal clear. The speed, accuracy and reliability are some of the most important assets of the machine.
Max Heitkamp, responsible for operations at Fabri Sport, explained, ‘Initially we had some issues with the software, but thanks to fast troubleshooting of Plotservice – our Summa dealer – they were quickly solved. Now, we can honestly say we are very satisfied with the machine’s performance. Its speed and precision are striking and unrivalled. Thanks to the S One cutter we can now cut flex foils with ease and precision. Entire rolls of customised stickers can now also be processed in one go and is as straightforward as it comes.’
The S One operators are still discovering the many functionalities and possibilities of the machine and the integrated GoSign software. Heitkamp elaborated, ‘I’m sure the possibilities with the Summa S One cutter are multi-fold and we can’t wait to discover them. The speed is incredible and has a direct influence on our yield already. Also, its precision in cutting enabled us to noticeably reduce the waste of material. This has a double effect. On the one hand, it allows us to significantly reduce production costs. On the other hand, waste minimisation reduces the ecological footprint, which is an important, if not crucial, argument these days for any company.’
‘Gerrit van Veen, sales manager at Plotservice, was very enthusiastic about the Summa products. He effortlessly convinced us of their value and to date, we are pleased with our choice of the S One cutting plotter. It is a stable and reliable cutter that will undoubtedly provide us with many more beautiful products today and for many years to come,’ said Heitkamp.
