Item Code: FCX4000-50
Product Category: Graphtec Flatbed Vinyl Cutters

FCX4000 Series are the ideal cutting plotter for high-precision and medium-heavy material crafting jobs and is suitable for cutting intricate designs on vinyl, photo-masking films, foam material, cardboard, oil board, and sandblast resist rubber. Suitable for PET (polyethylene terephthalate), Polyamide, Stiff paper, Cardboard, Microflute board or Industrial materials with precise adjustable cut pressure up to 600 gf. Flatbed FCX4000 Series is the most economical solution for cutting thick, hard materials that cannot be fed through a roll-feed/friction-feed cutting plotter.

Graphtec FCX4000 Series come standard with a Dual Head Configuration allowing pens, cutting tools, and creasing tools to be loaded simultaneously.

A new reverse creasing function allows alignment and creasing on the reverse side of the printed card stock to prevent traces of the creasing operation from appearing on the printed surface. A simple function to create fold lines for clean folding on micro-flute and cardboard has been enabled. Up to three fold lines can be selected. If two or three fold lines have been selected, the spacing between the lines can also be specified. Repeated creasing operations can also be specified for each of the lines.Cutting and creasing can be carried out from reverse-side when using the registration marks. This prevents crease line from appearing on the printed surface.

Graphtec FCX4000 Series are perfect for designers and prototyping in the offset printing, digital printing, packaging industry, fashion industry, as well as road sign making, stone & glass sandblasting/etching, the electronic film industry, and architectural model building.

Two different table sizes are available. 42" x 35" and 55" x 42"
