Product Details

  • Best Performing Cutter in its Class:

    • Fastest cutting speed in its class:
      58.5 inches per second ( 4ft 10.46 in/s, 1,485 mm/s ) maximum cutting speed for the higher productivity.

    • Highest cutting force in its class:
      5.88 N (600 gf) maximum cutting force for a wide variety of applications. Expands the range of possible cutting media such as thick film.

    • Reliable long-length tracking:
      Guaranteed 50 ft tracking and accuracy. (*1)
      Includes basket and push rollers with 3 different pressure settings (*2) to provide a more stable media feed and to support a wider range of media.

      1. Operated with Graphtec specified media and conditions.
      2. The center push rollers have 3 pressure settings, the end push rollers have two pressure settings.

    • Five sizes to match all requirements:
      The series includes cutting widths of 61 cm (24 in.) to 162 cm (64 in.).

  • 3 inch wide user-friendly LCD control Panel. A Dual configuration function (two-user set and save customized conditions), included Ethernet capability (run multiple machines from one location), and an option for additional push rollers with 3 tension settings and the new 5th Generation ARMS system (automatically detects registration marks with color variants).
  • Built-in network interface. The USB 2.0 (High Speed), RS-232C and Ethernet (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX) are built in as standard. Multiple interfaces enable various connections such as a single PC to single plotter and multiple PCs to multiple plotters. The Ethernet connection also allows sharing of the cutter over a network.
  • PERF CUT Enabled High Performance Cutters Finish The Job. With its included perf cut enabled custom tool settings - you have the ability to perforate cut all the way through your pre printed vinyl media creating pop-out, full-color stickers and decals without damaging your blade or cutting plotter machine.

    Blade position 1 is for contour kiss cutting of vinyl media. Blade position 3 allows the blade to cut all the way through the media into the channel without damaging the cutting strip and blade.

    Perforation cutting is performed by controlling the cutting force instead of blade up/down movements, increasing throughput. This is perfect for cutting separation lines for tearing out labels, fold lines for POP signs, and others.
  • Automatic Registration Mark Sensor, ARMs (5th Gen. Auto Registration Mark Sensor).
    • Optical Sensor 5.0 for Auto Alignment
    • Sensitivity adjustment for registration mark detection on various media and colors: Contour cut high intensity reflective media
    • Contour cut outside of registration marks: Expand print & cut area, Reducing media waste
  • Expanded Cutting Area Outside of Registration Marks. Graphtec uses media more efficiently than the competition by requiring smaller scanning and cutting margins.
  • Auto-paneling. Auto-paneling is a new feature that automatically splits long-length jobs into smaller pages that are cut sequentially but without any gaps. The result is a seamless, long-length finished job. Media movement is limited to the smaller page being cut, improving accuracy and tracking.
  • Dual configuration. Save two (2) user settings with eight (8) condition settings for each user. A fast access key allows quick switching between users. One cutter can be shared by multiple users or for multiple purposes.
