Graphtec FC9000 Series Vinyl Cutter
The flagship Graphtec FC9000 is their most advanced, versatile roll-fed cutting plotter to date. Revered around the world for its dependable, high-precision cutting capabilities with both printed and unprinted materials, the FC Series Graphtec vinyl cutter is the ultimate finishing solution for the wide-format signage, apparel, and automotive industries. A newly developed feeding system and cutting head have further improved cutting quality of thin and thick materials ranging from delicate window tint to rigid magnet and high intensity reflective. ARMS 8.0 features the introduction of Graphtec’s Datalink barcode generation system which efficiently loads and processes your jobs automatically.
New FC 9000 features:
- Flange kit (media handling system) is included with the FC9000, which was optional for the FC8600.
- New USB Datalink where you can run the FC9000 from a USB thumb drive.
- New grit roller configuration for longer tracking.
- New stand and basket configuration.
- New 8.0 ARMS for print and cut.
- New barcode feature for print and cut.
- New optional take-up reel for the FC9000-140 and 160 (see attached video)
Save time and reduce the chance of production errors by using barcodes to automatically process multiple jobs at the touch of a button. DataLink supports any combination of RIP software & printer in addition to included Cutting Master 4 and Graphtec Pro Studio software. The FC9000 detects barcode-linked cutting data from the operator's PC or USB flash memory, opens the correct file, sets the cutting conditions, and starts cutting automatically.
UNRIVALED PRINT / CUT ACCURACY
Graphtec’s Advanced Registration Mark Sensing technology delivers precise Print / Cut results in addition to efficiency-boosting features. The new white LED sensor and improved search algorithm accurately read registration marks printed from any printer onto a large variety of media types including high gloss, metallic, glitter, and high intensity reflective.
No flatbed? no problem.
A re-engineered feeding system has greatly enhanced the cutting capabilities of thin and thick media types. Add additional push rollers for increased precision when cutting heavy, rigid materials such as magnet, rubber, and diamond-grade high intensity reflective. Three pressure settings ensure strong media hold-down without leaving track marks.
CONTOUR & DIE CUT
Separate tool positions for contour and die-cutting ensures the longevity of your blades and cutting strip when creating decals and graphics that are effortlessly popped out of sheet and roll media.
The optional take-up reel boosts production efficiency by automatically winding rolls of media up to 65 feet long with an equipped infrared sensor.
Compatible with the FC9000-140 and FC9000-160.
All FC9000 models are sold with baskets and stands
