Graphtec America, Inc. announces launch of the Automatic Sheet Cutter (Desktop Cutting Plotter)

The Graphtec Automatic Sheet Cutter is designed to automatically feed and cut sheets of media up to 13" x 19" without requiring an operator.  An arm with air suction cups lifts the media from the supply tray and places it in the cutter.  Included software and CCD camera accurately align media for contour / perforation cutting of pre-printed graphics - efficiently freeing up labor to work on other tasks.  Once completed, each sheet neatly falls into the catch tray. Additional sheets of the same design can be loaded during cutting without resending the job from a computer, further enhancing productivity.

450 grams of down force enable users to produce small and medium size runs of: labels, business cards, heat transfer apparel, and more.  Using Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw EPS file types, simply add registration marks to your design and import to the iMark software for fast, high quality results.

Graphtec America, Inc. announces launch of the FCX2000 Series Flatbed Cutting Plotter

The FCX2000 Series is the ultimate solution for package prototyping and short production runs of rigid materials without the use of a cutting die.  Users are empowered to create custom orders at low cost with short delivery times. Redesigned Y bar and cutting table deliver high precision cutting and creasing. New dedicated design software and plug-ins provide all of the tools necessary to create elegant, professional products.

Using offline USB operation, even the most novice user is set to operate directly from the machine - without the use of a computer. Having a designer create the plot file, it can be passed to users of any experience level to produce.  Simply insert the USB and select the file from the intuitive new 3.7 inch Graphic LCD screen. The corresponding cutting conditions are automatically applied and the job is produced. Similarly, barcodes can be generated for print and cut applications. Cutting data is automatically selected from USB flash memory by scanning the generated barcode printed on the media to preform contour cutting. This reduces the potential for mistakes by the operator.

The FCX2000 Series is equipped with Graphtec’s renowned ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system) technology that allows users to accurately contour cut pre-printed graphics with ease. Auto-scanning of four point registration marks compensate for distortion in both X & Y directions to ensure precise cutting.  Version 6.0 is packed with high productivity features such as ARMS Copy, One Point Compensation, Scan Start Position, and Expanded Cutting Area capability.

Graphtec’s Cutting Master 4 plug-in for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW is used to send cut designs, as well as control parameters of the plotter. This is where registration marks can be added, large designs tiled; matrix copies created, and weed lines added.  Graphtec Pro Studio design software offers an array of design tools and extensive file format compatibility – including EPS, CMX and PDF.  In addition, Graphtec Pro Studio PLUS is an upgrade to unlock advanced features such as true shape nesting, arranging the cut order of objects, and rhinestoning. It is available for purchase through www.graphtecamericastore.com and your local Graphtec authorized dealer starting April 1st, 2017.

Dual head design delivers 500G and 1000G of force at speeds up to 400mm/s. Process materials thick or thin – including: rubylith, static cling film, vinyl, rubber sandblast, diamond grade reflective, chipboard, E flute*, and more. Three table sizes of 36”x 24”, 36” x 48”, and 36”x 72” are available utilizing enhanced vacuum suction media hold down.

Fulfill all project requirements with the superior efficiency and versatility of the Graphtec FCX2000.  Please visit www.graphtecamerica.com for more information regarding the FCX2000 and other Graphtec products.
