SummaCut-R D160

SummaCut-R D160

SummaCut-R is a very popular and affordable line of vinyl cutters. Based on world class SummaSign Pro technology, SummaCut-R vinyl cutters offer tracking accuracy, speed and features not found in other affordably-priced cutters.
Summa R-Series cutters combine a durable drag-knife cutting head with advanced Summa internal programming to deliver quality and versatility found in no other drag-knife cutter.
Unique advances in drag-knife cutting technology, like the exclusive OptiCut™ feature that eliminates flaws due to blade-wear, have made SummaCut-R one of the most popular affordably-priced cutters in the world.


  • Accepts media up to 164 cm wide
  • Cuts up to 160.5 cm wide
  • Standard  deluxe stand with media basket included
  • OptiCut™ eliminates flaws due to blade-wear

Intuitive control panel

SummaCut plotters feature a large, easy-to-use control panel that allows you to quickly and easily change setting such as speed, pressure and plot mode.

Save your favourite settings in 4 user-defined configurations for even faster switching between cutter settings.

Oversized cutting capabilities

The SummaCut-R now comes with the same oversized cutting capabilities as our S Class Flagship cutters.

Legendary Summa Tracking

Our exclusive MicroSprocket™ drive drum conditions the media as it advances to assure super-accurate tracking. Summa cutters track so well, they've literally become an industry legend.
