Graphtec Introduces Heavy-Duty FC3600 Series Cutting Machines
If your business calls for cutting rigid or thick materials, the heavy-duty FC3600 cutter from Graphtec may be of interest. Equipped with the proper heads, the FC3600 cuts corrugated cardboard, rubber, leather, oil boards, rigid plastics, and heat-transfer films up to 0.28 in. or materials such as polystyrene, styrene, and urethane up to 1.18 in.
This new cutter allows printers to compete in the packaging market (creasing and cutting cardboard and foam for packaging samples), the product design market (cutting thin materials such as self-adhesive materials for new product concepts), and the sign market (to make P-O-P and exhibit displays, as well as 2D and 3D signs).
The FC3600 allows for contour cutting of previously printed images using its alignment, as well as featuring four different heads, five tool types, a cutting speed of 23.6 in./sec and a cutting force of 5 Kg. The FC3600 comes standard with Graphtec's Cutting Master software, which allows direct output from illustration software such as Adobe Illustrator, and D-Cut Master software reads DXF files for AutoCad compatibility. Price: ranges from $32,995 to $46,995, depending on the options. (Western Graphtec: www.graphtecusa.com)
