Cut and crease!
Mimaki has launched the CFL-605RT Compact Flatbed Cutting Plotter, which offers both creasing and cutting capabilities and enables the creation and delivery of high quality, cost-effective output.
Designed to incorporate Mimaki’s well-established technology to support immediate finishing of packaging and prototypes with multiple functions, the new CFL-605RT helps sign and print companies to fulfill the growing demand for the production of prototypes and small lots, for both products and their packaging, the latter of which can be modified to reflect different seasonal and regional requirements.
A compact, multifunction flatbed cutter that accommodates material sizes up to oversized A2 and featuring a variety of functions including creasing and eccentric, tangential and reciprocating cutting, the CFL-605RT can be used in combination with Mimaki’s UJF-6042 printer to achieve the whole production process, including printing onto goods and packages, and cutting of cushioning materials.
The eccentric cutter has a maximum cutting thickness of 1mm, with an optimal downforce setting between 30 and 1,000g, while the tangential cutter features a maximum cutting thickness of 2mm with high downforce pressure, including materials such as reflective vinyl and rubber sheets. The reciprocating cutter has a maximum 10mm cutting thickness for materials such as foam or cardboard and uses a vertical reciprocating motion. The creasing roller creases materials for a perfect package and downforce pressures are adjustable from 500 to 1,000g.
