A collection of cutters
On Stand C34, Graphtec GB will demonstrate a range of plotter/cutters that includes the CE6000, the flagship FC8600 and the desktop Silhouette Cameo models.
The company will also demonstrate the latest FlexiSign sign making software and, subject to the conclusion of negotiations currently in progress, a range of market-leading large-format printers.
The CE6000 offers an increased cutting speed of up to 900mm/sec and a maximum cutting force of 450gf. In common with all Graphtec cutters, it features the latest ARMS 5.0 (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing) system that claims unbeatable media plotting and cutting accuracy via use of four-point, rather than traditional three-point, media registration. The ARMS facility now incorporates the latest ISM (intelligent Scan Mode) facility that further enhances tracking and cutting accuracy in longer-length print & cut applications.
The CE6000 comes bundled with a free Graphtec Studio design and cutting software program that now has EPS support to enhance its compatibility with other popular software programs such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW.
The upgraded FC8600 plotter/cutter claims ‘fastest in class’ status, offering a maximum speed of 1,485mm/sec. It has a maximum cut area of 1,662mm x 50m, an enhanced cutting force of 600gf and the ability to cut media up to a thickness of one millimetre.
One of two desktop plotter/cutters under the Silhouette brand, the 12 inch-wide Silhouette Cameo can plot and cut media up to a length of three metres. Included in its many advanced design features is a roll feeder facility for improved tracking accuracy.
Completing the Graphtec GB presence will be the latest FlexiSign software. This is described as a one-stop software solution for sign makers and incorporates five different products. It is available via an attractively priced subscription that covers all future upgrades, thus avoiding a hefty up-front payment for users.
