This Graphtec FCX4000-50 25.9" X 19.2" Flatbed Vinyl Cutter and Plotter achieves high quality cutting with improving of the quality and accuracy by enhancing rigidity of the sliding mechanism and the driving system. It is the best flatbed type cutting plotter that has a high usability and productivity equipped with new functions. It is an economical cutting solution for small to medium print on demand jobs - using electrostatic to hold media. Graphtec FCX4000-50's operation is intuitive with its new control panel, 3.7" LCD screen, and USB / barcode functionality. This flatbed vinyl cutter and plotter has a maximum speed of up to 29.5"/sec, a maximum force of up to 600 gf (5.88N), and has a cutting area of 25.98" x 19.21" (W x H) that supports 2 sheets of A3+ size. If you are looking for a low-cost but accurate die-free cutting and processing vinyl cutter and plotter, then the Graphtec FCX4000-50 is the perfect match for you.
Available only in our areas where we have service.
- Stronger Media Hold-Down. Holds media by electrostatic that is generated by electrodes arranged inside the panel. This method is suitable for cutting light weight materials.
- Provided tools suitable for many applications. The FCX4000 series has 2 tool holder in the carriage. Using 2 different tools in the same job increases work efficiency.
- Intuitive operation with 3.7" LCD. Settings can be easily set using the large 3.7-inch LCD (240 x 128 dots).
- 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.
- 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.

In this lesson we'll cover the assembly of the FCX2000. But before we start it is important to cover some precautions. Once built, place the FCX2000 in an area that is dust free, dry, and is not in direct sunlight. Make sure there's a rated power outlet that is grounded properly for both the cutting plotter and vacuum pump. If possible, leave around 2 to 3 feet of space on each side of the cutter, this makes it easier to load and unload material and reposition the machine. Please avoid storing miscellaneous objects on the table as this may cause damage. Regarding maintenance of the machine do not clean with solvents, the manual recommends a dry cloth or one that has been dampened with a neutral detergent diluted with water. Do not oil the parts, it is absolutely unnecessary and may cause damage. Finally, if something does go wrong don't try to repair. Please call your dealer or Graphtec’s technical support department. There are also a few important precautions to follow when operating the machine, handle the blades with care, they're small and easy to misplace. While this will be covered in a later lesson, also avoid overextending the blade. To prevent injury, stay away from moving parts inevitably something will get torn or pulled. To assemble the machine, start by carefully removing all of the items in the stand box and lay them out in an organized manner. This will help ensure that everything is accounted for. There should be two side panels, two Cross Members, 12 M4 hexagon screws, and four Phillips screws. The next step is building the stand, be aware of the small decals on each of the side panels, these indicate how the table is to be mounted on the stand. Also, as the stand is being assembled, try not to tighten the screws completely yet. This allows the stand to settle correctly once the table is mounted. First, attach one cross member to a side panel then the other cross member to the same panel, and lastly, attach the remaining piece, this completes the stand portion of the assembly. Remove the flatbed table from its box and place it on top of the stand making sure that the decals on the table align with the decals on the stand. Mount it with the provided screws. Once the screws are installed for the table, tighten all of the screws on the stand. Next, mount the bracket and roller on the side of the table. Next, take the pump and install the pipe assembly as seen here. Attach the vacuum hose to the pump, and then to the table. Once the machine is assembled, take the power cord and plug it in securely to the FCX2000 first and then into a rated outlet. Next, take the communication cable, in this case the USB cable, and plug it into the USB port of the FCX2000 and then into your computer. The FCX2000 assembly and setup is now complete. Let's become more familiar with the unit in our next lesson.
