The FCX2000 Series is the ultimate solution for package prototyping and short production runs of rigid materials without the use of a cutting die. With Graphtec’s medium to large flatbed cutting plotters, you have the right tool for contour cutting without requiring a die. Reduce media waste and processing time with included, dedicated software.Users are empowered to create custom orders at low cost with short delivery times. Redesigned Y bar and cutting table deliver high precision cutting and creasing. New dedicated design software and plug-ins provide all of the tools necessary to create elegant, professional products.
Using offline USB operation, even the most novice user is set to operate directly from the machine - without the use of a computer. USB operation enables operators of all skill levels to process various types of media for cutting. Having a designer create the plot file, it can be passed to users of any experience level to produce. Simply insert the USB and select the file from the intuitive new 3.7 inch Graphic LCD screen. The corresponding cutting conditions are automatically applied and the job is produced. Similarly, barcodes can be generated for print and cut applications. Cutting data is automatically selected from USB flash memory by scanning the generated barcode printed on the media to preform contour cutting. This reduces the potential for mistakes by the operator.
The FCX2000 Series is equipped with Graphtec’s renowned ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system) technology that allows users to accurately contour cut pre-printed graphics with ease. Auto-scanning of four point registration marks compensate for distortion in both X & Y directi
ons to ensure precise cutting. Version 6.0 is packed with high productivity features such as ARMS Copy, One Point Compensation, Scan Start Position, and Expanded Cutting Area capability.
Graphtec’s Cutting Master 4 plug-in for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW is used to send cut designs, as well as control parameters of the plotter. This is where registration marks can be added, large designs tiled; matrix copies created, and weed lines added. Graphtec Pro Studio design software offers an array of design tools and extensive file format compatibility – including EPS, CMX and PDF. In addition, Graphtec Pro Studio PLUS is an upgrade to unlock advanced features such as true shape nesting, arranging the cut order of objects, and rhinestoning.
Dual head design delivers 500G and 1000G of force at speeds up to 400mm/s. Process materials thick or thin – including: rubylith, static cling film, vinyl, rubber sandblast, diamond grade reflective, chipboard, E flute*, and more. Three table sizes of 36”x 24”, 36” x 48”, and 36”x 72” are available utilizing enhanced vacuum suction media hold down.

Table size in the Line-up
3 different table size with choice of vacuum suction or electrostatic media-hold down methods depending on application.
Stronger Media Hold-Down
Distance between the holes has been improved from 30 mm on FC2250 Series to 20 mm on FCX2000 Series, as a result, FCX2000 Series provides stronger suction power to hold heavier and thicker medias down.
Dual tool holder with 500 gf on tool 1 and 1,000 gf on tool 2
Provided tools suitable for many applications
The FCX2000 series has 2 tool holder in the carriage.
Using 2 different kind of tool allows to do a different job
without exchanging a tool at the same time. it can increase work efficiency.
Tool Holders & Cutting/Creasing Tools
Dual Tool Holders which can hold a cutting blade and creasing tool — to produce creases/folds and cuts on the same run.
Intuitive operation with 3.7" LCD
Onboard control and settings are simplified using the equipped 3.7” LCD (240x128 dots) and tactile control panel.
Image 1: Improved and increased Y-bar rigidity
For precision cutting accuracy
Image 2: Safety enhancement
A new, dedicated emergency STOP switch is at the ready. Supports a dedicated stop switch for stopping the machine when emergency case is occurred.
Image 3: Roll-media stocker
The FCX2000 comes equipped with a mounted roll-media stocker. Supports media width up to 37.4” and weight up to 11 lbs.
Offline operation supported by use of USB flash memory
Cut and plot data is created with Cutting Master 4 or Graphtec Pro Studio. That saved data may be transferred to a USB flash memory and the cut plot data file can be selected from the USB on the FCX2000 using its menu operations. This simplified work-flow enables users to operate without being connected to the computer.
Data management using bar-code function with USB flash memory
When performing contour cutting, also known as “Print & Cut”, the cutting data is automatically selected from the prepared USB flash memory. The FCX2000 scans the bar code printed on the media then automatically performs the contour cutting job. This emerging method helps to prevent operator error of using incorrect data - thus improving workflow efficiency.
Expanded Contour Cutting Area
This included function expands the print and cut area to include objects outside of the registration marks! Production efficiency is enhanced and media waste is reduced.
Supports Standard Crop Marks
Contour cutting pre-printed media is also possible using “standard crop marks.” This operation is available with the included Cutting Master 4 plug-in workflow.
Reversed Color Registration Marks
Registraiton marks are detectable when there is sufficient contrast against the mark and its background. Ultra glossy and reflective media offer challenges for accurate registration mark detection. With this reversed color output, the sufficient contrast is brought back for the ability to contour cut pre-printed ultra glossy and reflecting sheeting.
