    Hey guys,
    Just wondering some suggestions for running large rolls of material on my new Summa. It is basically a two sided adhesive where we are cutting through one backer and leaving the other. The manufacturer sent in these massive rolls but dang...they are huge. I really don't want to put a roller through it and I don't have a way to rewind them on another core unless I do it by hand. suggestions are welcome

    Summa makes TUR's. Contact Phil @ AirMark.

    unless TUR is different among manufacturers, it is a take up reel.

    Yeah, its the 30" so I don't think that's an option.

    put the roller on the machine and unroll by hand as is feeding in........ that is what I do when I get a new roll and do not want the motor of my machine to pull the heavy roll.

    Is the issue that it will not fit on the roll holder of the plotter, or that it's too heavy? I have a laminator with take up reel, I'd mount this to the laminator, then tape it to a core on the take up reel and spool half of it off.

    Well guys, I came up with another solution. It was also rolled the wrong way and caused some tunneling issues when I tried rerolling it. I used my $50 30” table top media/premask roller. I mounted it on a table above the plotter. Worked like a charm. 150,000 circles cut and delivered! That took way too long!
