    I`m looking to buy another 24inch cutter, but this time with the “opos” funtion.

    The ability to see registration marks on printed material, be it vinyl or heatpress clothing material and contour cut around the object.

    Has anyone got one of these cutters, what makes are available. prices etc.

    Any info would be welcome.

    I have a Summa T750 with OPOS, I have not used it to any degree as yet but the chap who installed the cutter demonstrated it in my workshop and the accuracy was spot on. He used both the Wincut driver which came with the cutter and from Signlab V5 which has an OPOS driver for the Summa.

    The new D60 has Opus and I read in a thread all the graphtec plotters come with it as well just has to be mentioned when buying or something like that came from the horses mouth its self that did.

    :lol1: forbies right mate.. there is the option of this with the graphtec range of cutters. being a group member you will be intitled to your discount (see graphtec forum) i can email graphtec and ask them to quote you on the cutter of your choice with this function if you want.

    summa as you will know also have this function.

    i would imagine roland can too, as my grenadeir has it and thats a modified roland soljet. 🙄

    We bought a Graphtec CE3000 with opus last year great machine, a few problems with the opus sensor to start with but fantastic service from Graphtec sorted it out.

    i just bought the Summa D60SE (with OPOS) and it arrived last wed – have been getting used to using it so far – 1st cutter and novice with vectors so taking it’s time – tried using the OPOS to contour cut and had a few attempts before it cut the correct contour (I think this was more to do with my setting the contour cut). On the correct cut it was very very accurate… once I have a few more attempts during the week I’ll report some more…

    Hi all.

    I have been using the new cutter (Summa D60 SE) for the last week now and I must say I am very pleased with it. The OPOS function has worked excellently. I have printed some logos and when contour cut using the OPOS function it has been extremely acurate – the logos have been circular in shape and I haven’t had a chance to try out more complex shapes yet.

    Setting up the registration marks is an easy process – measure the distances between the registration marks (x-axis and y-axis) – enter these in the cutter control panel – position OPOS laser over first registration mark and the cutter detects the remaining marks.

    To get a feel for the OPOS system used in the Summa D60 you could have a look at the OPOS User’s Manual located at :

    If there are any specific questions anyone has I’ll try and answer if I can…

    Summa now have a D60SE with opos £1750
    Mutoh have a similar cutter SC850D £2600
    and Graphtec also have a cutter

    The Summa seems to give the best value for money and their OPOS system has been around for 5 years+ (it works) Mutoh macine is quicker but only seems to work well with Easysign !
