Graphtec FC8000 30" Cutting Plotter 3" LCD Display -

The FC8000 30-inch high-performance cutting plotter is an industry leader for sign makers, graphic artists, automotive aftermarket professionals, countertop installers and other related users. The FC8000 features a maximum cutting speed of 58.5 in/sec, 4.0G maximum acceleration and 20 to 600g selectable cutting forces, allowing users to process diamond grade, high-intensity reflective film, sandblast resist rubber, automotive window & paint protection films, self-adhesive vinyl, Amberlith and Rubylith, among other media types.


  • Highest cutting force in its class: 600gf maximum cutting force for cutting wider variety of materials
  • The Graphtec proprietary closed-loop servo actuator, with an integrated precision sensor, ensures quick precise, yet gentle tool contact with the material surface during up and down motions. The Soft landing features prolongs the life of the cutting/plotting tool and maximize throughput performance


  • The intermediate registration marks in the media feed direction are detected to allow four-point correction for each individual segment area. This enables high-precision positioning of the whole area of skewed prints produced using long-length printing


  • Four-point registration mark sensing and X/Y-axis correction uses high-precision positioning to ensure accurate cutting of graphics that have been distorted during the printing and laminating process


  • Improved cutting/plotting quality and prolonged tool life are just a few of the outstanding standard features you can expect from the FC8000 series, made possible by the innovative Intelligent Soft Landing Tool


  • The innovative Intelligent Soft Landing Tool provides not only consistent and optimum cutting quality throughout the job but the benefit of Lower operating cost as well
  • Layout instructions are sent together with the cutting data for designs printed using layout functions such as set in a RIP, enabling continuous detection of registration marks for cutting. This feature is valuable when high accuracy is needed for cutting an array of copies
  • Fastest cutting speed in its class: 1485mm/s maximum cutting speed for the higher productivity
  • The on-board tool height sensor detects the blade tip's landing on the media surface, then intelligently and precisely aligns the blade rotation for the following cutting operation, all in a fraction of a microsecond
  • By memorizing the sensor's pre-read numbers on media and registration mark, ARMS4.0 can read registration marks in colored background
  • The first registration mark is detected automatically, eliminating the need to move the sensor to the registration mark manually. Subsequent registration marks are automatically redetected even if sensing errors occur, simplifying the process of registration mark sensing
