Paradigm Imaging Group has announced the addition of the Graphtec FC8600 cutting plotter to their product lineup.
The newly designed FC8600 has added features including an Enhanced Automatic Registration Mark System (ARMS) 5.0, standard tri-port interface, productivity enhancements, and new software.
The new ARMS 5.0 includes an enhanced auto-detect algorithm for up to 30% faster mark detection, supports an expanded cut area outside the registration mark boundary, and supports registration mark sensing embedded within multiple copies. A tri-port interface is now standard including USB, serial and an Ethernet port to ensure connection compatibility for standalone or networked environments. Productivity features have been added as well, including a new faster perforation cutting method, and auto-paneling to improve the quality of long-length jobs.
New Cutting Master 3 plug–in software for Adobe® Illustrator® and CorelDraw® has been completely re-designed and is also included. The plug in allows cutting conditions on the cutter to be monitored and changed on the fly and also allows multiple cutters to be run from one design station. Graphtec Studio; an all new and easy-to-use design software, is also included for both Windows and Mac platforms. The software is designed to lessen the learning curve and allow customers to start producing jobs immediately.
Says Randy Geesman, president of Paradigm Imaging Group, “The FC8600 surpassed our expectations, as we experienced first-hand at the recent NBM Show in Long Beach. We were lucky enough to have one of the first FC8600-130 cutting plotters in our booth, and we ran it continuously throughout the three-day show. The Graphtec FC8600 complements our portfolio of quality wide format solutions which we deliver with the highest level of customer service and support.”
