High performance, low cost


The CE6000 series of plotter/cutters from Graphtec GB has been upgraded to offer a higher performance capability comparable to that of the company’s flagship FC8000 series, but at a more competitive price point.

The CE6000 series, of which the CE6000-60 is a preferred model for sign and graphics producers, now offers a wider and longer length cutting area, an increased cutting speed of up to 900mm/sec and a maximum cutting force of 500gf. In common with all Graphtec cutters, the CE6000 series features the fifth generation of Graphtec’s innovative ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark System) facility that provides unparalleled media plotting and cutting accuracy via the use of four-point rather than the traditional three-point registration function.

Other key enhancements include an automatic panelling facility for longer-length tracking and cutting requirements, a choice of operating modes to complement the operator’s skill levels and a range of different tool condition settings.

The CE6000 series now also incorporates the latest ISM (Intelligent Scan Mode) within the ARMS function that further enhances tracking and cutting accuracy in longer-length print and cut applications, as well as expanding the range of materials that can now be handled. The Graphtec Studio design and production software is supplied as part of the package and now has EPS support to enhance its compatibility with other software programs such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW.

The upgraded flagship FC8000 series, which claims ‘fastest in class’ status, has a maximum cut area of 1,662mm x 50m, a maximum speed of 1,485mm/sec and an enhanced 600gf cutting force.

Complementing the CE6000 and FC8000 series of plotter/cutters are the desktop Silhouette Portrait eight inch-wide and Cameo 12 inch-wide plotter/cutters. The Silhouette Portrait is an ideal plug-and-play entry-level solution that requires only a USB cable linked to a standard PC or Mac. Both machines come bundled with Silhouette Studio design and production software and are available with a wide range of consumables.
