The Mosaica Group, a national distributor supporting dye sublimation and wide format print processes with equipment, consumables and services, is proud to announce a partnership with Summa America, a worldwide leader in delivering the world’s highest-quality vinyl and contour cutters, finishing flatbeds and professional laser cutting systems. The partnership allows The Mosaica Group to offer Summa’s advanced laser cutting technology to the apparel and textile markets, along with retail, signage and trade show events industries.
The Mosaica Group will focus on providing clients with Summa’s L SeriesTM of laser cutting systems including the L1810 laser cutter and the L3214, the largest and fastest laser system of its kind. The L1810 laser cutter is especially suitable to cut textiles, such as sportswear, dye sublimation garments but also a variety of raw materials used in the composite industry.
Similar to the L1810 in that it cuts while the fabric feeds across the table, eliminating time-consuming steps in the process, the L3214 laser cutter covers a 3.2 meter width and can be considered a true game-changer in the processing of textiles.
With the advanced camera technology, the cutter continuously scans the material and is able to automatically convert the design into a cutting vector, enabling cutting up to an amazing 8,600 square feet per hour. While the next part is being scanned, the laser is cutting simultaneously. This on-the-fly cutting concept is making the L3214 a uniquely productive solution in the market. It saves the operator a considerable amount of valuable time without compromising an inch on quality.
Even at its highest production speed, which is characteristic for the L3214, Summa is still able to maintain its high standards for accuracy. A motorized de-reeler ensures there is no fabric distortion or fraying while cutting. The system secures a constant and stable fabric feed onto the vacuumed cutting bed. Fast, accurate, and on-the-fly cutting – the L3214 is bound to change the go-to-market strategy for applications in soft signage, home decoration, sportswear and fashion.

“We now have a complete and comprehensive dye sublimation solutions portfolio with the addition of fabric laser cutting equipment due to our partnership with Summa America,” said Randy Peters, President and CEO, The Mosaica Group. “As our clients look at ways to enhance their capabilities, we can make bundle or package recommendations that offer significant savings for investing in everything from equipment such as the high-speed Panthera S4 dye sublimation printer to heat presses, plus ink, transfer and tissue paper, along with in-house paper converting services.”
