The FXC2000 flatbed cutter is the ultimate solution for prototyping and small production runs of rigid packaging media and other sheet fed materials. 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.
Added offline, USB operation enables operators of all skill levels to process various types of media for cutting.

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 FCX2000 Series to 20 mm on FCX2250 Series, as a result, FCX2250 Series provides stronger suction power to hold heavier and thicker medias down.
IMPROVED VACUUM SUCTION!
holds media with the use of external electric vacuum pump. This is the preferred method for heavier and thicker media. The Redesigned Cutting Table has increased hold-down capability by its increased number of vacuum holes. This redesign is significantly valuable when cutting smaller objects that have less of surface area.
TWO PUMPS AVAILABLE: 110V HAS 1.5 HORSE POWER, 220V HAS 2.5 HORSE POWER
New Vacuum Suction parts: 59000-050, and 59000-060
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. Maximum Cutting Force - Tool 1: 500 gf, Tool 2: 1,000 gf
Intuitive 3.7” LCD display
Onboard control and settings are simplified using the equipped 3.7” LCD (240x128 dots) and tactile control panel.
Lope for cutting blade (PM-CT-001)
This standard accessory helps to easily adjust the extruded blade lengths for the PHP33 and PHP35 blade holders.

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.
Enhanced ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system) for improved productivity of P&C applications
- Equipped the ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system)6.0.
- Easy and accurate cutting of pre-printed images using the cutting master 4 and etc.
- Enables higher productivity of POP, stickers, and prototype cartons.
ARMS Copy function
After data is sent the first time, it can be copied multiple times without a PC. In the FCX2000 Series, the first four marks are scanned on the first sheet, and only the first mark in subsequent sheets. This improves productivity by shortening scan detection time.
Image 1: Enhanced ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system) Version 6.0 for Improved Productivity of Contour Cutting Applications
The FXC2000 features Graphtec’s newest Advanced Registration Mark Sensing System Version 6.0 for even more improved contour cutting of your pre-printed graphics for package prototyping, reflective sheeting and many other professional rigid applications - using Cutting Master 4, Graphtec Pro Studio, and including most industry standard cutting software.

Reverse Side Cutting and Creasing Method
Cutting and creasing of pre-printed packaging graphics is possible on the reverse (non-printed) side of the sheet. This method of reverse side cutting and creasing prevents damage and marking of the printed side. This option is currently available using Cutting Master 4 or Graphtec Pro Studio software with the FCX2000.
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.
