I've never printed to a Summa printer, but looks like it prints both process and solid spot colors (DuoSpot ribbons). If the purple is printing as a spot have you designated the .AI color as a spot?
Thanks Rob. Have used same settings as all other print exports. If I use colour settings as C=100, M=100, Y=0 and K=0 print is solid but colour too blue. As soon as I adjust colours to look more 'purple', spots appear. Any other suggestions?

The printer doesn't have much resolution (609 x 304) so if you are printing percentages of process color there has to be a halftone screen, thus the dots. The printer apparently has a spot option and if you want solids I think that's what you'll have to look at:
Thanks for your suggestions Rob. I decided to give up and withdraw the
colour from use.
