Summa Cutter Help Request

Recommended Posts

Ok So I now have my first Summa.

 

Let me say the quality is terrific. This is an oldie- a Summacut D620.  Doing basic shapes everything is really nice.

 

BUT!  its not completing the cuts.  I think its a COM issue or Cable issue.  I have Cutter control open- playing with parameters. Software Flexi- but will try signblazer...

 

The Pictures show the following:

 

1. Circle not complete- the blade intentionally skips the rest of circle.

2. word TEST- The first T is not complete- it has done this five times in a row.

 

 

If Anyone has seen this before- let me know how you fixed it.  Many Thanks in Advance!

That was going to be suggestion. Summa offers lifetime free live tech support regardless of who originally bought the machine. Is it a serial cable? Mine just uses a usb. Glad to have you in the "Family" they're awesome cutters.

Thanks Goose- boy you aren't kidding- it really is in a class by itself- even my basic older version. And i have owned Graphtecs, Rolands, etc.

 

I bought a Gerber Edge Printer, HS15 plotter, Omega software and this cutter came with it- for a very low price two weeks ago. I look at it as I got the cutter for free. :)!!

 

Tech support said there are wires that are re-configured in the cable.

After hours of messing with com settings, oiling the solenoid shafts, checking blades- all the stuff.  I googled " Summa Blade Incomplete cut"

 

I came up in the archives of S101.com- 2007: http://www.signs101.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-6483.html

 

Turns out a TINY little foam pad bump stop wears out, forms a donut hole, then the screw catches it, and it keeps the blade fro dropping on the first CUT!!!!

 

Here are some pics, along with my fix- I used a soft side of a velcro set- its quiet, and cuts perfect.   unbelievable.
