Enhanced ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system) Version 6.0

for Improved Productivity of Contour Cutting Applications

The FXC2000 features Graphtec’s newest Advanced Registration Mark Sensing System Version 6.0 for even more improved contour cutting of your pre-printed graphics for package prototyping, reflective sheeting and many other professional rigid applications—using Cutting Master 4, Graphtec Pro Studio, and including most industry standard cutting sofware.

ARMS Copy Function

Cut data is able to be copied multiple times for streamlined productivity! Internally, the FCX2000 is able to scan the first four registration marks on the first sheet, and only requires scanning the first mark on subsequent (identical) sheets. This shortened scan detection method increases overall productivity.

Reverse Side Cutting and Creasing Method

Cutting and creasing of pre-printed packaging graphics is possible on the reverse (non-printed) side of the sheet. This method of reverse side cutting and creasing prevents damage and marking of the printed side. This option is currently available using Cutting Master 4 or Graphtec Pro Studio software with the FCX2000.

Expanded Contour Cutting Area

This included function expands the print and cut area to include objects outside of the registration marks! Production efficiency is enhanced and media waste is reduced.

Supports Standard Crop Marks

Contour cutting pre-printed media is also possible using “standard crop marks.” This operation is available with the included Cutting Master 4 plug-in workflow.

Reversed Color Registration Marks

Registraiton marks are detectable when there is sufficient contrast against the mark and its background. Ultra glossy and reflective media offer challenges for accurate registration mark detection. With this reversed color output, the sufficient contrast is brought back for the ability to contour cut pre-printed ultra glossy and reflecting sheeting.

USB Flash Memory Offline Operation Supported

Cut and plot data is created with Cutting Master 4 or Graphtec Pro Studio. That saved data may be transferred to a USB flash memory and the cut plot data file can be selected from the USB on the FCX2000 using its menu operations. This simplified work-flow enables users to operate without being connected to the computer.

Data Management Using Bar-Code Function with USB Flash Memory

When performing contour cutting, also known as “Print & Cut”, the cutting data is automatically selected from the prepared USB flash memory. The FCX2000 scans the barcode printed on the media then automatically performs the contour cutting job. This emerging method helps to prevent operator error of using incorrect data–thus improving workflow efficiency.
