ARMS 4.0

Automatic ARMS sensitivity adjustmentAutomatic ARMS sensitivity adjustment New function

By memorizing the sensor's pre-read numbers on media and registration mark, ARMS4.0 can now read registration marks in colored background. (some contrast is necessary for ARMS4.0 to read)

Automatic ARMS sensitivity adjustment

*Various combination of colors may not be able to read.

Four-point registration mark (two-axis skew) correctionFour-point registration mark (two-axis skew) correction Original

Four-point registration mark sensing and X/Y-axis correction uses high-precision positioning to ensure accurate cutting of graphics that have been distorted during the printing and laminating process.

Four-point registration mark (two-axis skew) correction

Segment area correctionSegment area correction Original

The intermediate registration marks in the media feed direction are detected to allow four-point correction for each individual segment area. This enables high-precision positioning of the whole area of skewed prints produced using long-length printing.

Segment area correction

Multiple registration mark correctionMultiple registration mark correction

Layout instructions are sent together with the cutting data for designs printed using layout functions such as set in a RIP, enabling continuous detection of registration marks for cutting. This feature is valuable when high accuracy is needed for cutting an array of copies.

Multiple registration mark correction

Automatic registration mark detectionAutomatic registration mark detection

Automatic registration mark detectionThe first registration mark is detected automatically, eliminating the need to move the sensor to the registration mark manually. Subsequent registration marks are automatically redetected even if sensing errors occur, simplifying the process of registration mark sensing.

Supports registration mark commandsSupports registration mark commands

Registration mark commands are provided to control ARMS functions from a PC. Registration mark data including size and spacing can be controlled to simplify operations.

  • Cutting Master 2
  • Plotter Controller

Superior software to help improve the productivity and efficiency is included as standard.

Cutting Plotter Controller

Cutting conditions settingUsing the controller, plotter operation and setting can be executed from PC.

The tool condition which is set by controller can list up to 100 subjects, the contents of the list can be saved in PC as a file or can be read.

Also the tool conditions set by plotter operation panel are readable into controller.

Read setting conditions are editable and can be reset to plotter side.

Further more obtaining and displaying plotter error information and condition information can be saved as a file.

Variety of application

Variety of application

Sophisticated tangential control algorithms

When the Tangential Control mode is engaged, the FC8000 over-cuts the mechanical tangential system both in speed and output quality by controlling the blade rotation.

The on-board tool height sensor detects the blade tip's landing on the media surface, then intelligently and precisely aligns the blade rotation for the following cutting operation, all in a fraction of a microsecond.

Graphtec's proprietary technology allows this sophisticated feature to completely eliminate distorted, rounded, or lifted corners-even when highly intricate design cutting is required on 0.025mm (1 mil) vinyl film or up to 1.25mm(50mil)sandblast rubber. This innovative and high precision system architecture is what enables the FC8000 to cut small text strings on vinyl. There is no other cutter/plotter on the market that can match the FC8000 Series' unsurpassed precision and built-in intelligence.

Intelligent soft Landing Tool

Improved cutting/plotting quality and prolonged tool life are just a few of the outstanding standard features you can expect from the FC8000 series, made possible by the innovative Intelligent Soft Landing Tool. The Graphtec proprietary closed-loop servo actuator, with an integrated precision sensor, ensures quick precise, yet gentle tool contact with the material surface during up and down motions. In addition to superior and accurate output, the Soft landing feature prolongs the life of the cutting/plotting tool and maximize throughput performance.

The innovative Intelligent Soft Landing Tool provides not only consistent and optimum cutting quality throughout the job but the benefit of Lower operating cost as well.
