    I haven’t heard of anyone with a summma graphics cutter.
    But the guy I bought my cutter from sold
    mutoh also. Hes a friend and did tell me they where good cutters. Although I decided the graphtec was the one I wanted.
    In fairness I did not see the mutoh or have a demo with it.
    Best of luck graham as its a big step deciding whats going to work best for you.
    I always say get a written guarantee from the sales guy that its gonna do what he says it is. just in case…

    p.s. if its a friction fed cutter. get him to show you it tracking the lengh its supposed to a couple of times. this is always a problem with friction fed… i bet it takes him a few goes thats even if it does go the length he says it does…

    The T1400 (54" Tangential Knife) cutter is among the best (if not the best)cutter built.
    If you plan on die cutting digital graphics as well, then I highly recommend the OPOS option as well. Both the Summa cutters and the Mutoh cutters are built in Belgium and both are fine cutters; however, it is my opinion that the Tangential Knife is superior to the Drag (Swivel) Knife head on the Mutoh cutter. My company has sold close to 500 Summa cutters the past 10 years with very few complaints.


    PS – You will also be very impressed with the T1400’s tracking as well as cut speed through straight vectors and curved vectors.

    Good luck.

    We have used Graftec cutters 610 and 1220mm for at least 10 years they have given incredible service only one xy axis motor on the 610 in 8 years!

    hhhmmm well i have a graptec 4100-130
    its brill no problems never broke down etc.
    we also use roland cutters i would also recommend them… although there company
    they use for fixing your machine in scotland "equinox" i have to say they where nearly picking my machine out there backside…lol… but thats another story
    as for the mutoh bob.
    ive not heard of any complaints
    but i think you must be a tadd more in there favour seeing as you sell them. the tangental function is far more accurate. yes !but also about 5 times slower. this function should really only be used on complexed logos
    & text smaller than 1.5 inches.
