Graphtec CE3000-60 Overview

On the job, the CE5000 series offers real cost/performance advantages over other brands of cutting plotters. With faster cutting speeds and higher cutting force, you'll have the flexibility to handle a wider range of material. The USB 2.0 high speed data interface or RS232C Serial Port ensures a reliable connection to the computer, either on a Mac or Windows PC. The CE5000 comes with ROBO Master Pro design software (Windows 2000/XP) and the completely new Cutting Master 2 Production Manager and Plug-in for the latest versions of CorelDRAW including X3, and Illustrator 8 thru CS2 on Windows 2000/XP, and ver. 10 through CS2 on Mac OS X on PowerPC and Intel Core processors.

The CE5000-60 (24") delivers a maximum cutting force of 300 grams and a maximum speed of 24 inches per second (in all directions.) The CE5000-120 (48") features a cutting force up to 450 grams, and a maximum cutting speed of 40 inches per second (45 degree angle.)

The built-in front control panel provides complete parameter control including eight preset cutting conditions, as well as advanced features like tangential control mode, down force offset, pen up speed, blade wear monitoring and more. With a 25 pin RS-232C or the High Speed USB 2.0 control interface, the CE5000 is compatible with legacy computer systems as well as the latest PCs available now and for several years to come.

Graphtec CE3000-60 Features

Front Panel Control and LCD Status Display

The control panel and LCD display provides a simple interface to adjust the machine settings. Up to eight cutting conditions can be saved for rapid recall. The cutting speed, cutting force, tool type, offset value and acceleration (quality) can be specified for each memory. Commonly-used function controls such as instantaneous pause, cutting plotting/condition set-ups, test cut and new origin are directly accessible on the control panel for added user efficiency.

Tangential Control Mode

The CE5000 features a tangential control mode, enabling precise blade rotation control, ensuring square corner cuts, without rounded or lifted edges. This unsurpassed cutting quality is perfect for processing intricate designs on a variety of material. Cutting force is programmable: the 24" CE5000-60 has a 31-step range up to 300g, and the 48" CE5000-120 provides a 39-step range up to 450g cutting force.

ROBO Master Pro and Cutting Master 2 Software Included - Windows and Mac OS X Compatible

CuttingMaster 2 plug-in ntegrates seamlessly into these applications to: apply registration marks to the layout for print and cut designs, to prepare the layout for output to the plotter, and to set the cutting conditions of the plotter. The CE5000 is an economical sign making system, Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems.

High Speed USB 2.0 or RS232C Serial Interface

USB 2.0 (1.1 backward compatible) and RS232C ports connect with virtually any computer.

Media Supply System and Floor Stand

The precisely crafted media supply system, as an integrated part of the floor stand (standard for both CE5000-60 & the CE5000-120), ensures accurate loading of media material and makes demanding long-length tracking and repetitive job operations effortless. The CE5000's media tracking capability is further enhanced when the optional media catch basket is utilized as another integrated part of its floor stand.

Smart Media Management

The Auto Pre-Feed function automatically unwinds and pre-feeds roll media as neede This feature enhances the plotter's tracking capability and is useful for unattended repeat jobs and long-length projects. With Auto Pre-Feed active, the CE5000 advances the media to a user-specified distance, upon recognition of plot data exceeding the pre-fed length.
