Best performing Cutter in its class
FC8600 series is premiere cutting plotter providing higher productivity and greater ease of use
Fastest cutting speed in its class
1485 mm/s maximum cutting speed for the higher productivity.
Highest cutting force in its class
5.88 N (600 gf) maximum cutting force for a wide variety of applications. Expands the range of possible cutting media such as thick film.
Reliable long-length tracking
Guaranteed 15m tracking and accuracy. (*1)
Includes basket and push rollers with 3 different pressure settings (*2) to provide a more stable media feed and to support a wider range of media.
(*1) Operated with Graphtec specified media and conditions.
(*2) The center push rollers have 3 pressure settings, the end push rollers have two pressure settings.
Five sizes to match all requirements
The series includes cutting widths of 61 cm (24 in.) to
162 cm (64 in.).
Enhanced functions for higher productivity
The enhanced features improve your work efficiency and increases productivity.
Copy with ARMS
It supports the copying of the cutting data including the ARMS control command for making multiple copies of the downloaded data. This allows multiple copies to be created without a PC, significantly improving work efficiency. The media can be also separated by each row with the cross cutter when the cross cut function is enabled. It provides high-productivity and highprecision print & cut.
Built-in network interface
The USB 2.0 (High Speed), RS-232C and Ethernet (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX) are built in as standard. Multiple interfaces enable various connections such as a single PC to single plotter and multiple PCs to multiple plotters. The Ethernet connection also allows sharing of the cutter over a network.
Perforation cutting is performed by controlling the cutting force instead of blade up/down movements, increasing throughput. This is perfect for cutting separation lines for tearing out labels, fold lines for POP signs, and others.
Auto-paneling is a new feature that automatically splits long-length jobs into smaller pages that are cut sequentially but without any gaps. The result is a seamless, long-length finished job. Media movement is limited to the smaller page being cut, improving accuracy and tracking.
Settings can be easily set up using the large 3-inch LCD and tactile control panel. It is icon driven and supports multiple languages.
Save two (2) user settings with eight (8) condition settings for each user. A fast access key allows quick switching between users. One cutter can be shared by multiple users or for multiple purposes.
2 tools configuration for cutting & plotting (Option)
It holds both a pen for plotting and a blade for perforated cutting. The tool is automatically switched for cutting and plotting as needed.
