graphtec flatbed cutting plotter

USB offline cutting
The FXC2000 flatbed cutter is the ultimate solution for prototyping and small production runs of rigid packaging media and other sheet fed materials. With Graphtec’s medium to large flatbed cutting plotters, you have the right tool for contour cutting without requiring a die. Reduce media waste and processing time with included, dedicated software.

Added offline, USB operation enables operators of all skill levels to process various types of media for cutting.

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.

Graphtec Cutting Software

Includes Graphtec’s Enhanced Application Software Solutions

Graphtec Pro Studio Cutting Software

Enhanced graphic design and cutting software for creating original production files, Graphtec Pro Studio comes standard with functions such as auto-shapes, shading, and industry standard editing functions. It can also configure the cutting conditions and other settings on the cutting plotter. Importing of EPS, Ai, CMX, and PDF file types are supported. Graphics created with other popular design software can also be imported.

Mac OS Cutting Software

The included Graphtec Studio for Mac OSX is a reliable and intuitive application software for cutting and producing original designs. Graphic images can be easily created by using the program icons that are arranged around the drawing area.

Cutting Master 4

Graphtec Cutting Master 4 is the industry’s premiere plug-in software for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. This plug-in allows you to create and produce all of your graphics directly in the software and send the cut data directly to the cutting plotter. Cutting Master 4 includes a variety of functions such as: preview, registration mark creation, tool conditions, cut job settings and more! Cutting Master 4 is easy to use and enables you to get the best possible performance from your cutter plotter.
