FCX2000 Series

Overview

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.

Up to 1 Kg Cutting Force & 400 mm/s Cutting Speed

Interface: Ethernet, USB2.0 and Serial RS-232C | Intuitive 3.7” LCD Screen | Digital Servo Motor USB Flash Memory for Offline Operation | Win & Mac Compatible

Features

Stronger Media Hold-Down

Distance between the holes has been improved from 30 mm on FC2250 Series to 20 mm on FCX2000 Series, as a result, FCX2000 Series provides stronger suction power to hold heavier and thicker medias down.


Dual tool holder with 500 gf on tool 1 and 1,000 gf on tool 2

Provided tools suitable for many applications

  • The FCX2000 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.

Tool Holders & Cutting/Creasing Tools

Dual Tool Holders which can hold a cutting blade and creasing tool — to produce creases/folds and cuts on the same run.


Intuitive operation with 3.7" LCD

Onboard control and settings are simplified using the equipped 3.7” LCD (240x128 dots) and tactile control panel.

For precision cutting accuracy

Image 2: Safety enhancement

A new, dedicated emergency STOP switch is at the ready.  Supports a dedicated stop switch for stopping the machine when emergency case is occurred.

Image 3: Roll-media stocker

The FCX2000 comes equipped with a mounted roll-media stocker.  Supports media width up to 37.4” and weight up to 11 lbs.


 

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 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 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.

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.
