High Precision Cut and Crease
Graphtec FCX4000 Series achieves high quality cutting with improving of the quality and accuracy by enhancing rigidity of the sliding mechanism and the driving system. It is the best flatbed type cutting plotter that has a high usability and productivity equipped with new functions. Graphtec FCX4000 is an affordable cutting solution for small to medium print on demand jobs – using electrostatic to hold media. The 60ES model cleanly fits four A3 + sheets for high productivity. Operation is intuitive with its new control panel, 3.7” LCD screen, and USB / Barcode functionality. Max. Speed 29.5″/sec, Max. Force 600 gf.
Professional flatbed cutting plotters (in a more compact size) capable of processing various materials with accuracy compliant to most industry requirements for pattern making. FCX4000 Series are the ideal cutting plotter for high-precision and medium-heavy material crafting jobs and is suitable for cutting intricate designs on vinyl, photo-masking films, foam material, cardboard, oil board, and sandblast resist rubber. Suitable for PET (polyethylene terephthalate), Polyamide, Stiff paper, Cardboard, Microflute board or Industrial materials with precise adjustable cut pressure up to 600 gf. Flatbed FCX4000 Series is the most economical solution for cutting thick, hard materials that cannot be fed through a roll-feed/friction-feed cutting plotter.
Graphtec FCX4000 Series come standard with a dual head configuration allowing pens, cutting tools, and creasing tools to be loaded simultaneously. A new reverse creasing function allows alignment and creasing on the reverse side of the printed card stock to prevent traces of the creasing operation from appearing on the printed surface. A simple function to create fold lines for clean folding on micro-flute and cardboard has been enabled. Up to three fold lines can be selected. If two or three fold lines have been selected, the spacing between the lines can also be specified. Repeated creasing operations can also be specified for each of the lines.
Cutting and creasing can be carried out from reverse-side when using the registration marks. This prevents crease line from appearing on the printed surface. Graphtec FCX4000 Series are perfect for designers and prototyping in the offset printing, digital printing, packaging industry, fashion industry, as well as road sign making, stone & glass sandblasting/etching, the electronic film industry, and architectural model building.

Stronger Media Hold-Down
The FCX4000 Table employs 110 Volt Electro-Static Hold-Down Technology suitable for securing light-weight material which assures precise cuts without slipping.This feature holds media in place utilizing an electrostatic charge that is generatedby electrodes arranged inside the panel.
Provided Tools Suitable for Multiple
Intuitive operation with 3.7″ LCD Control Panel
Settings can be easily set using the large 3.7-inch LCD (240 x 128 dots).
Offline Operation using USB Flash Memory
Cut and plot data is created with Cutting Master 4 or Graphtec Pro Studio. That saved data may be transferred to a USB flash memory and the cut plot data file can be selected from the USB on the FCX4000 using its menu operations. This simplified work-flow enables users to operate without being connected to the computer.
Data Management using Barcode Function with USB Thumb Drive
When performing contour cutting, also known as “Print & Cut”, the cutting data is automatically selected from the prepared USB flash memory. The FCX4000 scans the bar code printed on the media then automatically performs the contour cutting job. This emerging method helps to prevent operator error of using incorrect data – thus improving workflow efficiency.
This included function expands the print and cut area to include objects outside of the registration marks! Production efficiency is enhanced and media waste is reduced.
Supports Standard Crop Marks
Contour cutting pre-printed media is also possible using “Standard Crop Marks.” This operation is available with the included Cutting Master 4 plug-in workflow.
Reversed Color Registration Marks
Registration marks are detectable when there is sufficient contrast against the mark and its background. Ultra glossy and reflective media offer challenges for accurate registration mark detection. With this reversed color output, the sufficient contrast is brought back for the ability to contour cut pre-printed ultra glossy and reflecting sheeting.
2 different table sizes are available. The effective cutting area of the 50ES model is expanded for supporting 2 sheets of A3+ size, and the 60ES model supports 4 sheets of A3+ size, which is more suitable for post-processing of Print On Demand:
