PERF CUT Enabled High Performance Cutters Finish The Job

With its included perf cut enabled custom tool settings - you have the ability to perforate cut all the way through your pre printed vinyl media creating pop-out, full-color stickers and decals without damaging your blade or cutting plotter machine.

Blade position 1 is for contour kiss cutting of vinyl media. Blade position 3 allows the blade to cut all the way through the media into the channel without damaging the cutting strip and blade.

FC8600 Perf Cut

Perforation cutting is performed by controlling the cutting force instead of blade up/down movements, increasing throughput. This is perfect for cutting separation lines for tearing out labels, fold lines for POP signs, and others.

Automatic Registration Mark Sensor, ARMs
(5th Gen. Auto Registration Mark Sensor)

FC8600 Series Vinyl Cutters feature Graphtec's Optical Sensor 5.0 for auto alignment, a sensitivity adjustment feature for registration mark detection on various media and colors, and can contour cut outside of registration marks.

It supports the copying of the cutting data including the ARMS control command for making multiple copies of the downloaded data. This allows multiple copies to be created without a PC, significantly improving work efficiency. The media can be also separated by each row with the cross cutter when the cross cut function is enabled. It provides high-productivity and highprecision print & cut.
