Summa has reported that its F1612 flatbed cutter has contributed to raising awareness about COVID-19 by assisting in the production of floor decals to enforce social distancing guidelines.
Manchester-based Europoint is a major supplier of signage materials to the UK Point of Sale (POS), sign and digital print sectors. To enable a fast start-up of the production of floor decals, Europoint contacted their sister company, ADAPT – Amari Digital Printing Technologies to help out.
ADAPT has the necessary vinyls to produce the stickers available at hand, and they are also equipped with a Summa F1612 flatbed cutter in their production area. Therefore, ADAPT could start a continuous high-volume production of these rolls of floor decals immediately.
Mike Broughton, Europoint’s General Manager explained, ‘Here at Europoint, we are motivated to support the national effort against the spread of the virus in any way we can, working with our suppliers and supporting our customers who can supply on a significant scale with social distancing and other health signage that can assist this universal effort against COVID-19. This way we hope to make a small contribution to the countrywide efforts we see emerging on a daily basis.’
Armando Carvalho, Senior Engineer at ADAPT added, ‘Any contribution, going from face masks to face shields, surgical aprons, but also floor graphics, can save one’s life during these times. It is important we keep joining efforts and help out where we can. These floor graphics are an essential part to reminding people in a friendly way to keep their much needed social distance.’
