Graphtec FAQ Video Training How To Perf Cutting

What is Perf Cut ?

Using Flexi Sign Pro and your Graphtec FC8600 cutting plotter to create contour PERF CUT around your artwork for custom, POP-OUT cuts around your pre printed media for custom stickers and decals

Perf-Cutting only available and applies to the following cutting plotters series:

FC8600, FC8000, FC7000 MK2 and FC7000.

 

Dual tool configuration for cutting and plotting

 

It holds both a pen and a blade. 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 and plotting as needed, ensuring a high quality pattern and maximum productivity.


 

Cutting Through Media

 

Graphtec carrier sheets are one sided tacky, developed to hold down material for “cut through” applications in order to preserve blade life and avoid damage to the cutting plotter’s teflon cutting strip.

Carrier sheet must be used when cutting all the way through media when your cutting plotter is NOT EQUIPPED for PERF CUTTING*. 

Cutting all the way through media without using the carrier sheet or Perf Cutting* Feature will damage your blade and cutting plotter. Always use the Test Cut feature of your cutting plotter to ensure cutting depth.

* PERF CUTTING Through Vinyl Media is Available on the Graphtec FC8600, FC8000 Cutting Plotter Series
