Graphtec GB to demonstrate new flatbed cutters at Sign Digital UK

On Stand D50, Graphtec GB will demonstrate the new FCX2000 series of flatbed plotter/cutters. They are available in three sizes (920 x 610, 920 x 1,200 and 920 x 1,800mm) and a choice of either a vacuum suction or electrostatic material hold-down facility, with the former being more suitable for heavier and thicker materials and the latter better suited to the processing of lighter-weight media. The plotter/cutters have a maximum cutting force of 9.8N (1Kgf) and a maximum cutting speed of 400mm/sec. 

Key design features of the FCX2000 include a specially configured cutting head incorporating two tool holders, the first of which holds a knife and the second a creasing tool to enable a dual cutting and creasing capability. There is also a USB port to enable offline operation and to allow files to be saved and retrieved remotely and a barcode function that enables printed bar code and the relevant cutting data to be recalled from memory and cut.

This greatly enhanced media detection and cutting solution allows users to flip the sheet of the material being processed and cut from the reverse side which is particularly beneficial to creasing functions. The plotter/cutter is also supplied with Graphtec’s new Pro Studio design and production software and a wide range of cutting tool options to accommodate different applications.

Graphtec GB will also demonstrate the latest i-Mark automatic digital die-cutter. Based on the popular Graphtec CE6000-40 plotter/cutter and i-Mark hardware and software, it offers a number of key features that are considered by Graphtec GB to set it apart from other similarly positioned die-cutting systems. The most notable of these is that the cutting process is carried out automatically to eliminate the need for owners to purchase expensive dies, while there is a capability to handle up to 120 sheets of material in a single and continuous cycle with the ability to add more sheets as required without interruption of the cutting process. The average cutting speed is 30-40 seconds for each sheet of material.

 i-Mark can be used for a wide range of print and cut applications, including primarily short-run label production, digital prints and packaging, thus enabling sign and graphics manufacturers and print finishing specialists to diversify into new markets. The extremely compact footprint also enables the machine to be mounted to a work surface as small as 60 x 67cm.

Completing the Graphtec GB showing will be the flagship FC8600 and the CE6000 series of roll-fed plotter/cutters, both of which can claim a ‘fastest in class’ capability.
