PERF CUT Enabled High Performance Cutters Finish The Job

With its included perf cut enabled custom tool settings - you have the ability to perforate cut all the way through your pre printed vinyl media creating pop-out, full-color stickers and decals without damaging your blade or cutting plotter machine.

Blade position 1 is for contour kiss cutting of vinyl media. Blade position 3 allows the blade to cut all the way through the media into the channel without damaging the cutting strip and blade.

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.

Automatic Registration Mark Sensor, ARMs

(5th Gen. Auto Registration Mark Sensor)

  • Optical Sensor 5.0 for Auto Alignment
  • Sensitivity adjustment for registration mark detection on various media and colors: Contour cut high intensity reflective media
  • Contour cut outside of registration marks: Expand print & cut area, Reducing media waste

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 highprecision print & cut.

AUTO MARK DETECTION

The first registration mark is automatically detected within a wide search area; this eliminates the need to manually move the sensor near the registration mark position. Subsequent marks are automatically located which improves the operation of the registration mark searching.

EXPANDED CUTTING AREA

The new ARMS 5.0 expands the cutting area to include the area outside the registration marks.  This increases the production efficiency by reducing media waste.

4-POINT AXIS ALIGNMENT

This feature compensates for any direction on the X-axis and Y-axis using sophisticated algorithms.  This leads to more accurate registration and improves the reliability and quality of Print & Cut.

SEGMENT AREA COMPENSATION

A 4-point axis alignment is performed for each segmented area.


In Normal Mode, this is performed by reading the marks in the middle of the feeding direction for the entire graphic and then cutting the entire graphic, providing high-precision alignment for long length Print & Cut applications.
In the new Sequential Mode, contour cutting is performed sequentially in each segmented area. Media movement is limited to the smaller area being cut, improving accuracy and tracking for heavier media or media that has been laminated.

*  Normal mode is available when Graphtec Studio, Graphtec Pro Studio, Cutting Master 2/3/4, or Plotter Controller software is used.

*  Sequential mode is available when Graphtec Studio (ver. 2.1.200 or later) or Cutting Master 3 (ver. 2.1.211 or later) is used.

*  This function is available in firmware version 2.10 or later.

MULTIPLE-MARK COMPENSATION

When the design is printed with the matrix copy function, the action of reading the marks and contour cutting is repeated for each copy. It significantly improve productivity for Print & Cut.

* This function is available when the Graphtec Studio, Graphtec Pro Studio, Cutting Master 2/3/4 software is used.

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.

ISM (Intelligent Scan Mode) 

The ISM incorporates a new scanning algorithm that not only expands the cutting range of compatible media, but also reduces scan times and increases mark scanning success.  Registration marks are also detectable on colored media and textured media, such as glossy laminated materials that were difficult using the conventional method.

*  Media must be within the specification in range.  Marks may not be detected due to poor print quality or media surface.

*  This function is available in firmware version 2.10 or later.
