Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system (ARMS) for Print&Cut application

Suitable for print and cut using ARMS

Equipped the ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing system). Easy and accurate cutting of pre-printed images using the Cutting Master 3. Enables higher productivity of POP, stickers, and prototype cartons.

 

Advanced reverse-side cutting / creasing function

Cutting and creasing can be carried out from reverse-side when using the registration marks.
This function prevents crease line from appearing on the printed surface.


 

Special tools & enhanced functions for higher productivity

Special tools for thicker materials

CB30UC (3.0mm supersteel blade) and PHP34-CB30-HS(blade holder ) are special tool for thicker material. It is suitable to cut a corrugated cardboard E/F/G grade which are difficult to be cut by standard cutting blade.

Simple creasing function

A simple function to create fold lines for clean folding on micro-flute and cardboard has been enabled.

How to determine the number of creasing line.

Single-line : Subsrates up to 0.1 mm thick

Double-line : Paper board 0.1 to 0.5 mm thick

Triple-line   : Rigid cardboard 0.3 to 0.5 mm thick.

2-Tool holders for easy selection.

Two tools can be mounted at the same time for easy switching. If the cutter blade and the creasing tool are mounted at the same time, cutting and scoring operations are performed automatically for higher productivity.

Multi pass cut function

This function enable to perform the cut with multi pass on a media that cannot be cut

with a single cutting operation.ensuring sharp edges and corners.

Tangential emulation

Graphtec's proprietary tangential emulation provides precise and clean cutting even on thicker material,

ensuring sharp edges and corners.

It is easy to use and enables you to get the best performance from your plotter.

Main Features

  • Editing the position, enlarging and reducing the graphic directly within the preview windows
  • Creating an outline of a letter, recognising a line width and the overlap
  • Output by a layer or colour, and inserting a line for weeding (horizontal, vertical)
  • Splits an object into small pieces with the thiling function
  • Supports the connection and switching of mulituple plotters

D-CUT Master

This software reads a DXF file in the AutoCAD R13 format and then enablesdata display,deleting, sorting,changing of the output order, specification of out put setting, and creation of GP-GL plot data and output to a plotter.

Main functions

  • The Cutting Simulation function enables checking of the cut sequence, changing of the cut sequence, and tiled cutting prior to actual output.
  • Output in separate layers or separate colors can be specified.
  • Output conditions can be selected by layer name or color.
  • Matrix Copy function
  • Any drawing exceeding the plotter's Valid Area can be output in multiple pages using the Tiling function.
  • Supports a sorting function to minimize tool movement.
  • The Weed Border cutting function enables automatic output of a border to facilitate weeding of the cut media.
