    Summa S2 T160

    Hi Folks, I have just purchased a Summa S2 T160 with the tangential cutting head. I have using a DGI for the last 6 years. I having problems dialing this Summa in to cut auto film. It either cuts all the way though or not enough on the one pattern Just seeing if there is anyone else using this plotter for auto film and what set up are you using?, blades? what angle? and cutting strip?, the self healing one or have you changed to a harder one?. Kind regards Mal.
  2. Hi Folks, Just been having trouble with cutting 4mil in a 36inch roll. The film wants to walk or not stay in line and will come out from the pinch rollers. Have also been cutting a 60inch roll with no problems. Would it be not enough pinch roller pressure? I would normally just hand cut it but I have a big job with all panels have handle cut outs in them.
  3. I'm guessing it might be similar to shrinking crystalline, do a youtube search on shrinking crystalline.
  4. Chinese film is very good lasts upto about 2 years. ✌️
  5. You can adjust the patterns to suit your self, this can take some time to get it just right.
  6. I use a Sharpie marker then cut the film on the peel board, take's a couple extra minutes but you will never have to replace the glass from cutting marks.
  7. Work for yourself and every job is 100%
  8. Suntek by any chance?
  9. This was in the WFAANZ news letter a little while ago. (Window film association of Australia and New Zealand) Tiguan tint trouble If an owner of a VW Tiguan come into your workshop wanting tint on the rear screen – would you do it? Many tinters wouldn’t to avoid potential dramas down the line. The Tiguan Owner’s Manual advises against putting stickers of any kind on the inside surface of the rear screen, as removal of such could damage the window heating system. So, before you touch the rear screen of a Tiguan – always advise your customer of this recommendation. If they still want to proceed, have them sign a waiver. If the film ever needs to be removed (for whatever reason) and the demister bars are damaged during the removal, the entire rear window may need to be replaced.
  10. Vinegar is acidic, you might want to test it first before using on a customers car.
  11. 🙄 💩 Shitouette, I mean silhouette, it may shrink well but only sort of lasts 2 to 3 years before going purple, it turns purple just sitting in the box. Out of those three, llumar. Just stay with solargard 👍
  12. Thank you, Have just ordered some , will let you how it go's
