The Graphtec FCX4000 Series achieves high quality accurate cutting through enhancement of the rigidity of the sliding mechanism and improvement of the driving system. Graphtec FCX4000 is an affordable cutting solution for small to medium print on demand jobs - using electrostatic to hold media. Operation is intuitive with its new control panel, 3.7” LCD screen, and USB / barcode functionality. Max. Speed 29.5"/sec, Max. Force 600 gf
The effective cutting area of the 60ES model is expanded for supporting 4 sheets of A3+ size for use in the post-processing of Print On Demand.
Holds media by electrostatic that is generated by electrodes arranged inside the panel. This method is suitable for cutting light weight materials.
The FCX4000 series has 2 tool holder in the carriage. Using 2 different tools in the same job increases work efficiency.
Settings can be easily set using the large 3.7-inch LCD (240 x 128 dots).
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 FCX4000 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 FCX4000 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
Registration 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.
