The FCX2000 Series is the ultimate solution for package prototyping and short production runs of rigid materials without the use of a cutting die. 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.Users are empowered to create custom orders at low cost with short delivery times. Redesigned Y bar and cutting table deliver high precision cutting and creasing. New dedicated design software and plug-ins provide all of the tools necessary to create elegant, professional products.

Using Offline USB Operation, even the most novice user is set to operate directly from the machine - without the use of a computer. USB operation enables operators of all skill levels to process various types of media for cutting. Having a designer create the plot file, it can be passed to users of any experience level to produce. Simply insert the USB stick and select the file from the intuitive new 3.7 inch Graphic LCD screen. The corresponding cutting conditions are automatically applied and the job is produced.

The FCX2000 Series is equipped with Graphtec’s renowned ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system) technology that allows users to accurately contour cut pre-printed graphics with ease. Auto-scanning of four point registration marks compensate for distortion in both X & Y directions to ensure precise cutting. Version 6.0 is packed with high productivity features such as ARMS Copy, One Point Compensation, Scan Start Position, and Expanded Cutting Area capability.

Graphtec’s Cutting Master 4 plug-in for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW is used to send cut designs, as well as control parameters of the plotter. This is where registration marks can be added, large designs tiled; matrix copies created, and weed lines added.

Graphtec Pro Studio design software offers an array of design tools and extensive file format compatibility – including EPS, CMX and PDF. In addition, Graphtec Pro Studio PLUS is an upgrade to unlock advanced features such as true shape nesting, arranging the cut order of objects, and rhinestoning.

The FCX2000 is equipped with a Dual Head Design delivering 500G and 1000G of force at speeds up to 400mm/s. Process materials thick or thin – including: rubylith, static cling film, vinyl, rubber sandblast, diamond grade reflective, chipboard, E flute*, and more.

Three table sizes of 36”x 24”, 36” x 48”, and 36”x 72” are available utilizing enhanced vacuum suction media hold down.

Interface: Ethernet, USB2.0 and Serial RS-232C | Intuitive 3.7” LCD Screen | Digital Servo Motor USB Flash Memory for Offline Operation | Win & Mac Compatible
