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 high precision 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.

Two 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.

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.

Improved application software

Including improved design application software (Graphtec Studio) and plug-in software for Illustrator and CorelDRAW (Cutting Master 3)

Graphtec Studio

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.

Main Features:

  • Creating designs using auto-shape, various line types, and others
  • Editing the characters using rotate, mirror, fit-to-shape, and outline
  • Auto-trace (bmp, tif, jpg, etc. image format)
  • Supports the connection and switching of multiple Plotters

< Supported OS (*) > Windows 8/ 7/Vista/XP, Mac OS 10.5.8 to 10.8
