No compromise with low-cost die-free cutting and processing
FCX2000 Series Flatbed
Professional plotters & scanners
Available in four sizes, 60VC, 120ES, 120VC, 180VC
The FCX2000 flatbed cutter is the ultimate solution for prototyping and small production runs of rigid packaging media and other sheet fed materials. With Graphtec’s medium to large flatbed cutting plotters, you have the right tool for contour cutting without requiring a die. Reduce media waste and processing time with included, dedicated software.
Added offline, USB operation enables operators of all skill levels to process various types of media for cutting.
Cut data is able to be copied multiple times for streamlined productivity! Internally, the FCX2000 is able to scan the first four registration marks on the first sheet, and only requires scanning the first mark on subsequent (identical) sheets. This shortened scan detection method increases overall productivity.
The FXC2000 features Graphtec’s newest Advanced Registration Mark Sensing System Version 6.0 for even more improved contour cutting of your pre-printed graphics for package prototyping, reflective sheeting and many other professional rigid applications—using Cutting Master 4, Graphtec Pro Studio, and including most industry standard cutting software.
Cutting and creasing of pre-printed packaging graphics is possible on the reverse (non-printed) side of the sheet. This method of reverse side cutting and creasing prevents damage and marking of the printed side. This option is currently available using Cutting Master 4 or Graphtec Pro Studio software with the FCX2000.
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 FCX2000 using its menu operations. This simplified work-flow enables users to operate without being connected to the computer.
Holds media with the use of external electric vacuum pump. This is the preferred method for heavier and thicker media.
Redesigned Cutting Table
Has increased hold-down capability by its increased number of vacuum holes. This redesign is significantly valuable when cutting smaller objects that have less of a surface area.
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.
Reversed Colour Registration Marks
Registration 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 colour output, the sufficient contrast is brought back for the ability to contour cut pre-printed ultra glossy and reflecting sheeting.
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.
Includes Graphtec’s Enhanced Application Software Solutions
Enhanced graphic design and cutting software for creating original production files, Graphtec Pro Studio comes standard with functions such as auto-shapes, shading, and industry standard editing functions. It can also configure the cutting conditions and other settings on the cutting plotter. Importing of EPS, Ai, CMX, and PDF file types are supported. Graphics created with other popular design software can also be imported.
Intuitive 3.7inch Graphic LCD
Onboard control and settings are simplified using the equipped 3.7″ (240×128 dots) and tactile control panel.
Loupe for cutting blade (PM-CT-001)
This standard accessory helps to easily adjust the extruded blade lengths for the PHP33 and PHP35 blade holders.
FCX 2000 Safety and Hardware Feature
A new, dedicated emergency STOP switch is at the ready!
The FCX2000 comes equipped with a mounted roll-media stocker. Supports media width up to 37.4″ and weight up to 11lbs.
