FC8600-100

FC8600-100

Best performing Cutter in its class in 100cm wide.

Fast cutting speed
1485 mm/s maximum cutting speed for the higher productivity.

High cutting force
5.88 N (600 gf) maximum cutting force for a wide variety of applications. Expands the range of possible cutting media such as thick film.

Reliable long-length tracking
Guaranteed 15m tracking and accuracy. (*1)
Includes basket and push rollers with 3 different pressure settings (*2) to provide a more stable media feed and to support a wider range of media.
*1: Operated with Graphtec specified media and conditions.
*2: The center push rollers have 3 pressure settings, the end push rollers have two pressure settings.

Enhanced functions for higher productivity
The enhanced features improve your work efficiency and increases productivity.

Copy with ARMS
It supports the copying of the cutting data including the ARMS control command for making multiple copies of the downloaded data. This allows multiple copies to be created without a PC, significantly improving work efficiency. The media can be also separated by each row with the cross cutter when the cross cut function is enabled. It provides high-productivity and highprecision print & cut.

Built-in network interface
The USB 2.0 (Full Speed), RS-232C and Ethernet (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX) are built in as standard. Multiple interfaces enable various connections such as a single PC to single plotter and multiple PCs to multiple plotters. The Ethernet connection also allows sharing of the cutter over a network.

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

Auto-paneling
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 limited to the smaller page being cut, improving accuracy and tracking.

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.

Dual configuration
Save two (2) user settings with eight (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 tools configuration for cutting & plotting (Option)
It holds both a pen for plotting and a blade for perforated cutting. The tool is automatically switched for cutting and plotting as needed.

Expanded cutting area
The new ARMS 5.0 expands the cutting area to include the area outside the registration marks. This increases the production efficiency by reducing media waste.

4-point axis alignment
This feature compensates for any direction on the X-axis and Y-axis using sophisticated algorithms. This leads to more accurate registration and improves the reliability and quality of Print & Cut.

Segment area compensation
The 4-point axis alignment is performed for each segmented area. This is performed by reading the mark in the middle of the feeding direction and provides high-precision alignment for long length Print & Cut applications.

Multiple-mark compensation
When the design is printed with the matrix copy function, the action of reading the marks and contour cutting is repeated for each copy. It significantly improve productivity for Print & Cut.
* This function is available when the Graphtec Studio, Cutting Master 3 or Cutting Master 2 software is used.

Auto sensitivity adjust
The sensitivity of the registration mark sensor is automatically set by measuring the reflective level of the mark and the background of the actual media. The mark can be detected when the colour of the mark has a reasonable contrast against the background. For example, a white mark can also be detected on a coloured background.

Software included

Graphtec Studio NEW
This is an easy-to-use application software for creating original designs. Images can be easily created by using the program icons that are arranged around the drawing area. It has enhanced features such as auto-shapes, shading, and editing functions. It can also configure the cutting conditions and other functions on the plotter.
