    Graphtec Introduces New CE Series Plotters

    The CE6000 series features the latest ARMS 5.0 (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing) system that offers unparalleled media plotting and cutting accuracy via four-point rather than the traditional three-point registration. The new CE6000 series of plotter/cutters is destined to set a new level of performance in relation to its low cost that would be difficult to match by any similarly positioned machine currently available. Combining all of the basic high-performance capabilities of the hugely successful CE5000 series that it now replaces, the CE6000 offers a host of advanced production features and free Graphtec Studio cutting design software at a price that will be universally welcomed by the sign and graphics and digital printing industries faced with cost-cutting necessities. Offering outstanding performance at a realistic cost, the CE6000 moves the cutting capabilities of the CE series nearer to those of Graphtec GB's flagship FC8000 series but without the need for a huge additional investment. Significantly, the CE6000 offers a much wider and longer length cutting area capability, a dramatically increased cutting speed of up to 900mm/sec and a maximum cutting force of 500gf by comparison with the 300gf rating of the previous CE5000 machine.

    The CE6000 series also features the latest ARMS 5.0 (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing) system that offers unparalleled media plotting and cutting accuracy via four-point rather than the traditional three point registration, an automatic panelling function for longer-length cutting and tracking requirements, a choice of operating modes to complement the user's skill levels and a range of different tool condition settings.

    The machines also feature an enhanced sorting facility to minimize the amount of movement in the media feed function which leads to shorter cutting times and an LCD-inspired large-type easy-to-understand and navigate machine operating VDU panel.

    Supplied in a choice of three models with cutting widths ranging from 15 to 48 inches to accommodate a range of different applications.
