Flatbed cutting plotter is used for not only sign making but also for a wide range of industrial applicaitons and processes. Max.750mm/s cutting speed is useful for getting high productivity.

FC4500 Series are professional flatbed cutting plotters capable of processing a wide variety of materials with accuracy. Compact size that can be set on a table with precise control of contour cut, half cut, perforated cut, and plotting.this FC4500 Series is the most economical solution for cutting thick, hard materials that cannot be fed through a grit rolling type cutting plotter.

 

Media hold-down method

It is very important to select exact media hold-down method in order to perform a precise cut.  FC4550 Series provide the following method to fit a variety of media:

   Using dot-shaped adhesive on the mat allows to hold the material by entire surface.

- Reduce damage when peeling off the material

  Using the special adhesive is able to avoid the transfer of the glue to the material.

  Using the low tack adhesive; it is able to avoid the occurrence of curling of the material by easily peeled off.

- Easily loading the material

  It realize by removing bubbles easily from the cling mat having the dot-shaped adhesive.

- Easily remove mat from FC4500 Series

  It realize by rigid mat made using plastic sheet substrate.

Assessment varies by the material. There is different characteristic materials in the same category. Please evaluate with the material that is actually used.

*1. Adhesive force will be weakened by the paper dregs in not many cuts. The mat needs to be frequently replaced. Do not recommend for this material. 

*2. It may occur curling of the material by strong stickiness when it is peeled off from mat.

Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system (ARMS)

Increase the productivity of the Print & Cut

Graphtec’s ARMS system adjusts for several types of potential print distortions, allowing for accurate contour cutting of pre-printed images and decals.

 

Advanced reverse-side cutting / creasing function

Cutting and creasing can be carried out from reverse-side when using the registration marks. This function prevents a cutting / creasing line from appearing on the printed surface.

 

Enhanced functions for higher productivity

2-Tool holders for easy selection.

Two tools can be mounted at the same time for easy switching. If the cutter blade and the creasing tool are mounted at the same time, cutting and scoring operations are performed automatically for higher productivity.

Note: The second tool is held by magnetic force on the FC4550-50, so the choice of tool is limited.

 

Simple creasing function

A simple function to create fold lines for clean folding on micro-flute and cardboard has been enabled.

  • Up to thre fold lines can be selected
  • If two or three fold lines have been selected, the spacing between the lines can also be specified.
  • Repeated creasing operations can also be specified for each of the lines.
FC Simple Creasing Function.jpg

How to determine the number of creasing lines

  • Single-line    :  Substrates up to 0.1 mm thick
  • Double-line   :  Paperboard 0.1 to 0.5 mm thick
  • Triplee-line   :  Rigid cardboard 0.3 to 0.5 mm thick

Multi pass cut function

This function enable to perform the cut with multi pass on a media that cannot be cut with a single cutting operation ensuring sharp edges and corners.

Tangential emulation

Graphtec's proprietary tangential emulation provides precise and clean cutting even on thicker material, ensuring sharp edges and corners.
