Best In Class Capabilities
The FC9000 Series offers best in class productivity and abilities with a wider range of compatible media.

Wide Cutting Area For Full Media Use
All FC9000 models have a minimum cutting width of 50mm, the maximum cut width is determined by the width of machine you opt for.

To prevent skew of long-length cutting, the auto-paneling function automatically splits long-length jobs into smaller pages that are then cut sequentially. It shortens feed length of the media and enables a more stable cut through the machine. This is the ideal solution when cutting a job that is potentially longer than the guaranteed long-length tracking capabilities of the machine.

User-Friendly Built-In Control Panel
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.

Improved & Increased Long-Length Tracking
The FC9000 supports long-length tracking of up to 15m as standard. For the wider 140 or 160cm wide models there is a now an automatic take up roller option which can be added to the plotter prior to purchase. Adding the take up roller increases media tracking accuracy up to 20m.

Data Output Via USB Flash Memory Without PC
When cutting data designed with Graphtec Pro Studio and sent with cutting Cutting Master 4 are saved to USB flash memory, they can be output directly to the cutting plotter by plugging in the USB drive directly into the plotter which means the machine can be used without the need for a computer.

A.R.M.S 8.0 Optical Eye
The FC9000 is equipped with the latest A.R.M.S (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing) 8.0 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.

New Data Link Function (Barcode Data Management For Continuous Cutting)
By reading the Graphtec original barcode the FC9000 automatically detects its linked data from the PC or USB flash memory. This function is available regardless of which printer or RIP software is used.

Continuous Cutting
Barcode data management allows for cutting different data sequentially by detecting the “Start Mark” of the new type of barcode. Sequential P&C process with roll-media is now available.

Supports Coloured Marks & Speciality Media
The FC9000 supports a wide range of media types including holographic paper and reflective sheets. This has been made possible to the machines improved ARMS 8.0 Sensor algorithm.

Supports Adobe Illustrator “Crop Marks”
Using Cutting Master 4 plug-in software, Adobe Illustrator crop marks will be available.

Segment Area Compensation (XY)
This function has been implemented in addition to the current X-axis Direction Segment Area Compensation. Middle mark is now available not only for X but also Y-axis alignment.

Expanded Cutting Area
It expands the cutting area to include objects outside of the area enclosed by registration marks. Production efficiency is enhanced by reducing media waste.

The Graphtec FC9000 is driven by Graphtec Pro Studio (Studio for MAC) and includes the Cutting Master 4 plugin to allow you to drive the plotter from softwares such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite.

Graphtec Pro Studio (PC Only)
Easy-to-use application software for creating original designs. Includes enhanced functions such as auto-shapes, shading, and editing functions. It can also configure the cutting conditions and other settings on the plotter. EPS / Ai / CMX / PDF file compatibility allows users to import pre-existing designs.

Graphtec Studio For MAC
This is an easy-to-use application software for Mac OS to create original designs. Images can be easily created by using the program icons that are arranged around the drawing area.
