We’ve upgraded our Graphtec vinyl cutter game – we now stock and ship all three vinyl cutter models in the Graphtec CE6000 PLUS series! Graphtec has integrated several new features with the PLUS models that support reliable, efficient performance and increased ease-of-use when compared to the previous models in the Graphtec CE6000 series.
Increased Programmable Cutting Force
The standard Graphtec CE6000 series boasted a programmable cutting force of up to 450 gf on the CE6000-120 model only – the CE6000-40 and CE6000-60 maxed out at 300 gf. With the PLUS Series, 450 grams of down force can be achieved on all three vinyl cutter models. The three new cutters are available in the following sizes:
Reliable Long Length Tracking
Graphtec has improved the media stocker for the CE6000 PLUS series by implementing a media brake system and pressure settings for the center push roller. These additions promote better media feed stability and successful long-length cutting. Users can also purchase Graphtec’s accompanying media catch baskets separately for the CE6000-60 PLUS and CE6000-120 PLUSmodels, which allow for reliable tracking up to 16.4 feet long (the CE6000-40 PLUS supports tracking up to 6.5 feet long).
Graphtec Pro Studio
With the introduction of the new Graphtec Pro Studio software, it’s easier now more than ever to create advanced and original designs with confidence – right in the same space you’ll do your cutting. The software’s enhanced capabilities allow users to design artwork like an expert in the Graphtec Pro Studio just as they would in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW. Cutting conditions and other plotter settings can be adjusted in the same application as the one used while designing, thus streamlining the process and improving production time. The new Graphtec Pro Studio is currently compatible with Windows only. Apple users can still access the previous version of Graphtec Studio for Mac. Users accessing the new Graphtec Pro Studio or the Graphtec Studio for Mac software alike can import EPS, Ai, CM and PDF file types or graphics created using other popular design software, so no worries if you prefer to edit your artwork outside of the Graphtec software.
Cutting Master 4
The CE6000 PLUS series also includes the Cutting Master 4 plug-in software for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, which allows users to send cutting objects created in these programs straight to the plotter. Cutting Master 4 enables the ability to take full advantage of the plotter and set cutting conditions with ease.
Compatibility with a Wide Range of Materials
With the increase in achievable down force, the Graphtec CE6000 Plus models are able to efficiently cut through more media types than their predecessors. This is a major plus (pun intended) for smaller businesses looking to expand their services and venture into new product territory. The Graphtec CE6000 PLUS models can effortlessly cut the following materials:
• Light reflective film (except high-luminosity)
• Etching resist
• Paint-masking film
• Rhinestone pattern media
• Image transfer media
• Card stock up to 10pt (220 g/m)
