Operation

The CE7000 is easy to use which follows Graphtec’s ethos of ensuring all of their products are highly intuitive, simple to operate and extremely efficient.

The plotter is driven by an large backlit LCD screen and tactile control panel which is used to quickly and easily adjust user settings, automatic registration mark sensing system and to support print and cut alignment which is crucial to ensure you achieve the best cut every time.

CE7000 User Modes

Simple Mode: This mode automatically sets the necessary cutting conditions need to cut through the chosen media type which is perfect for operators who are new to the machine.

Normal Mode: This mode is user driven and lets allows the user to use all functions and settings to tune the plotter in for specific operator requirements. Using this mode allows operators to set up to 8 separate cutting conditions which can be linked to specific materials and saved within the machines memory for future use.

A.R.M.S

The CE7000 is equipped with the latest A.R.M.S (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing) 8.0 System to allow for easy and highly accurate print & and cut applications for pre-printed media. This system allows you to cut out around pre-printed designs to create adhesive-back labels and stickers or die-cut / perforation cut through card to create packaging samples out of card.

New Data Link Function (Barcode Data Management For Continuous Cutting)
By reading the Graphtec original barcode the CE7000 automatically detects its linked data from the PC or USB flash memory. This function is available regardless of which printer or RIP software is used.

Continuous Cutting
Barcode data management allows for cutting different data sequentially by detecting the “Start Mark” of the new type of barcode. Sequential P&C process with roll-media is now available.

Supports Coloured Marks & Speciality Media
The CE7000 supports a wide range of media types including holographic paper and reflective sheets. This has been made possible to the machines improved ARMS 8.0 Sensor algorithm.

Supports Adobe Illustrator “Crop Marks”
Using Cutting Master 4 plug-in software, crop marks are available to set within Adobe Illustrator.

Segment Area Compensation (XY)
This function has been implemented in addition to the current X-axis Direction Segment Area Compensation. Middle mark is now available not only for X but also Y-axis alignment.

Expanded Cutting Area
It expands the cutting area to include objects outside of the area enclosed by registration marks. Production efficiency is enhanced by reducing media waste.

Software

The Graphtec CE7000 uses exactly the same enhanced commercial grade design software as the top of the range Flat Bed plotters and includes the Cutting Master 4 plugin to allow you to drive the plotter from softwares such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite.

Graphtec Pro Studio (PC Only)
Easy-to-use application software for creating original designs. Includes enhanced functions such as auto-shapes, shading, and editing functions. It can also configure the cutting conditions and other settings on the plotter. EPS / Ai / CMX / PDF file compatibility allows users to import pre-existing designs.

Graphtec Studio For MAC
This is an easy-to-use application software for Mac OS to create original designs. Images can be easily created by using the program icons that are arranged around the drawing area.

Cutting Master 4
Cutting Master 4 is a plug-in software for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. Send cutting data to the plotter, view cut preview, add registration marks, edit tool conditions / job settings and more. This easy to use plug-in enables you to get the best performance from your plotter.
