The CE6000-120AP (Apparel Pattern Cutting & Marking) is a Graphtec high-speed, professional cutting plotter designed specifically as an output machine device for apparel CAD systems.  The CE6000-120AP was designed specifically as an output machine device for apparel CAD/CAM systems.  The Cutter/Plotter can also output directly from the NScan & NShot Digitizers.  The Plotter accepts sheet paper and roll paper.  It handles a wide variety of pattern paper in widths up to a maximum of 1180 mm (when using a 2-inch core), and in a thickness range of from 64 to 130 g/m2. 

Innovative features include maximum cutting speeds of 39 ips (48″ CE6000-120AP) and with a maximum cutting force of 450 g. It also features an easy to use menu navigation system with eight groups of preset conditions which facilitates instantaneous recall of pre-programmed job-specific plotter setups.

Tri-port connectivity (USB, parallel and serial) makes the CE6000 series compatible with virtually any computer configuration.

 
 

CE6000-120AP Features are suitable for fabric cutting machines

 

All come standard with the machine to ensure accurate plotting of long markers and precise cutting of pattern layouts.

 

• The floor stand, roll media rack and media basket come standard with the machine to ensure accurate plotting of long markers and precise cutting of pattern layouts.

• Seven different perforated line types are provided to enable clean, easy separation of the individual pattern pieces after cutting.

• Media catch basket

• A cross-cutter function is also provided.

 

DUAL TOOL CONFIGURATION FOR

CUTTING AN PLOTTING

The pen carriage holds both a plotting pen and a blade at the same time — to enable easy switching between plotting and cutting operations. Four sets of user-specified setup parameters are retained in memory for instantaneous recall.

The pen is for plotting and detailing graded patterns with seams, text, notches, grain direction, etc.

The blade is to make the perforated cut of the pattern outline.  The tool is automatically switched for cutting & plotting as needed - ensuring a high quality pattern and maximum productivity!

 

 
 

August 30, 2013 - UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA LINCOLN, Faculty members Martha Horvay, Barbara Trout and Youngjoo Lee (l. to r.) marvel at a pants leg pattern piece drafted and cut in minutes on the department's new Graphtec plotter/cutter.

 

The new Graphtec plotter/cutter installed in the product development workroom of the Kathryn Ericksen Lohr Merchandising Research & Business Development Laboratory is now online and ready to expand the technical skill sets of students working in our Flat Pattern, Product Development and Apparel Design courses.

The plotter interfaces with the Lectra Digitizer, allowing students and faculty to easily draft and grade garment pattern pieces, otherwise time-consuming tasks when executed manually.

The plotter first delineates the full pattern piece and then retraces the drawn pattern shape, perforating it for easy separation from the paper feed.  Extreme speed and accuracy are features of this new technology that will help to streamline these aspects of project execution.

Experience with this technology in the department will better prepare students for using it in industry, where it's a much used fixture in many design studios

GRAPHTEC CE6000-120AP CUTTING PLOTTER

FOR APPAREL, GARMENT, PATTERN CUTTING

 

GRAPHTEC CE6000 Cutting Plotter is amongst the easiest to use on the market whilst yielding high quality results every time.  

Graphtec CE6000 The built-in front control panel provides complete parameter control including eight preset cutting conditions, as well as advanced features like tangential control mode, down force offset, pen up speed, blade wear monitoring and more. With a 25 pin RS-232C or the High Speed USB 2.0 control interface, the CE6000 is compatible with legacy computer systems as well as the latest PCs available now and for several years to come. With a newer, larger LCD screen, managing your cutting jobs is simpler than ever!

Graphtec CE6000 comes standard with: floor stands (except for the 15" CE-6000-40), rear media roll rack, ROBO Master software, Cutting Master Plug-in, plus Graphtec's ARMS (Automatic Registration Mark Sensor) system. 

The latest ARMS 5.0 (Automatic Registration Mark Sensing) system standard with Graphtec CE6000 offers unparalleled media plotting and cutting accuracy via four-point rather than the traditional three point registration and an automatic panelling function for longer-length cutting and tracking requirements.  It also has a choice of operating modes to complement the user's skill levels and a range of different tool condition settings.

 

ENHANCED SPEED WHEN PERFORATION CUTTING

Perforation cutting is performed by controlling the cutting force instead of blade up/down movements - dramatically increasing throughput.  The force is controlled by the design software using a new command.

RELIABLE TRACKING

The number of push rollers has been increased to five; with the three inner rollers having two pressure settings (low and normal) to prevent media lifting and to suit a wider range of substrates.  A media sheet guide is also included to reduce static and to improve long length tracking. These two new additions ensure a more stable media feed and higher productivity.

EASY TO USE IN SIMPLE OPERATION MODE

Two set up menus: Simple and Normal are available and can be chosen by the operator as desired.

HIGHT ADAPTABILITY TO THE OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

The design of the media feed system ensures that loaded media is acclimated to the ambient temperature and humidity before plotting or cutting.  The user-selectable media pre-feed function sets two outer tracks, enhancing media handling. Together, these two media feed elements ensure reliable cutting and plotting quality within the desired operating environment.

LARGE LCD WITH MULTI-LANGUAGE SUPPORT

Settings can be easily configured using the large LCD (3.7-inches, 240 x 128 dots) and tactile control panel. It is also icon driven and supports 10 languages

NEW DESIGN WITH EASE OF USE

All operations such as media loading, unloading, and menu settings can be conveniently done from the front of the machine.  For added convenience, heavy media can be loaded on the low position of the media sticker as well.  This front-loading configuration also saves valuable production space!
