Graphtec FC8600 Series: Operation

The FC8600 Series Cutting Plotter utilises these enhanced functions to give provide the operator with a higher rate of productivity.

Intuitive Operation
Settings can be easily set up using the large 3 inch LCD and tactile control panel. It is icon driven and supports multiple languages.

Performance Cutting
Perforation cutting is performed by controlling the cutting force instead of balde up/down movements, increasing throughput. This is perfect for cutting separations lines for tearing out labels, fold lines for POP signs and others.

Auto-Paneling is a new feature that automatically splits long-length jobs into smaller pages that are cut sequentially but without any gaps. The result is a seamless, long-length finished job. Media movement is liited to the smaller page being cut, improving accuracy and tracking.

Dual Configuration
Save 2 user settings with 8 condition settings for each user. A fast access key allows quick switching between users. One cutter can be shared by multiple users or for multiple purposes.

2 Tool Configuration For Cutting & Plotting
This operational can be achieved when the 2nd pen kit is purchased for the plotter. It attaches to the head of the plotter and holds both pen for plotting and a blade for perforated cutting. The tool is automatically switched for cutting and plotting as needed.

Graphtec FC8600 Series: A.R.M.S For Print & Cut

The CE6000 Plus is equipped with the A.R.M.S (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing) 5.0 System to allow for easy and highly accurate print & and cut applications for pre-printed media. This system allows you to cut out around pre-printed designs to create adhesive-back labels and stickers or die-cut / perforation cut through card to create packaging samples out of card.

4-Point Axis Alignment
This feature compensates for any skewing and shrinking on the X and Y-axis using sophisticated algorithms. This leads to more accurate registration and improves the reliability and quality of Print & Cut.

Expanded Effective Cutting Area
The ARMS system expands the cutting area to include outside of the area enclosed by registration marks. This increases production efficiency by reducing media waste.

Multiple-Mark Compensation
When a design is printed using the matrix copy function, the marks are read and contour cutting is repeated for each copy. It can significantly improve productivity for Print and Cut.

Copy With ARMS
The COPY key allows fast access for making copies of downloaded data. It also supports cutting data including the ARMS control command for processing multiple sheets without a PC.
