Intro

Graphtec FCX4000 is an affordable cutting solution for small to medium print on demand jobs - using electrostatic to hold media.  The 60ES model cleanly fits four A3 + sheets for high productivity.  Operation is intuitive with its new control panel, 3.7” LCD screen, and USB / barcode functionality.

 
 
 

Table size in the Line-up

2 different table size are available.  The effective cutting area of the 50ES model is expanded for supporting 2 sheets of A3+ size, and the 60ES model supports 4 sheets of A3+ size.  It is more suitable in the use of post-processing of Print On Demand.

The FCX4000 series has 2 tool holder in the carriage.  Using 2 different kind of tool allows to do a different job without exchanging a tool at the same time. it can increase work efficiency.

 

Intuitive operation with 3.7" LCD

Settings can be easily set using the large 3.7-inch LCD (240 x 128 dots) and tactile control panel.

Offline operation supported by use of USB flash memory

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 FCX4000 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 FCX4000 scans the bar code 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.

Enhanced ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system) for improved productivity of P&C applications

  • Equipped the ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system)6.0. 
  • Easy and accurate cutting of pre-printed images using the cutting master 4 and etc. 
  • Enables higher productivity of POP, stickers, and prototype cartons.

ARMS Copy function

After data is sent the first time, it can be copied multiple times without a PC. In the FCX4000 Series, the first four marks are scanned on the first sheet, and only the first mark in subsequent sheets. This improves productivity by shortening scan detection time.

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 FCX4000.

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.
