The CE6000 are Graphtec’s professional class of cutting plotters. They're also cleaner, “greener” with an electronic design and manufacturing process that minimizes the environmental impact of the hardware equipment throughout its entire life cycle.
Both the CE6000-60 and CE6000-120 come standard with a floor stand, rear media roll rack with new media brake, Graphtec Studio software, Cutting Master Plug-in, plus Graphtec’s ARMS (Automatic Registration Mark Sensor) system, which allows contour cutting of pre-printed graphics, artwork and media. Professional, reliable servo motors are made for production and accuracy!
Cutting vinyl film and contour cutting pre-printed graphics, artwork and media are what Graphtec cutting plotters are reliably famous for. Even cutting heat transfer vinyl media and rhinestone design template graphics is a breeze. The CE6000-60 vinyl cutter delivers a maximum cutting force of 300 grams and a maximum speed of 24 & 35 inches per second, while the CE6000-120 vinyl cutter delivers a maximum cutting force of up to 450 grams and cutting speeds up to 40ips!
Expanded Control Panel, Menu, and LCD Status Display
The built-in front control panel provides complete parameter control including eight preset cutting conditions, as well as advanced features like tangential control mode, down force offset, pen up speed, blade wear monitoring and more. With a 25 pin RS-232C or the Full Speed USB 2.0 control interface, the CE6000 is compatible with legacy computer systems as well as the latest PCs available now and for several years to come.
Tangential Control Mode
The CE6000 features a tangential control mode, enabling precise blade rotation control, ensuring square corner cuts, without rounded or lifted edges. This unsurpassed cutting quality is perfect for processing intricate designs on a variety of material. Cutting force is programmable: the 24" CE6000-60 has a 31-step range up to 300g, and the 48" CE6000-120 provides a 39-step range up to 450g cutting force.
Graphtec Studio and Cutting Master 3 Software Included - Windows and Mac OS X Compatible
The CE6000 comes with Graphtec Studio design software (Mac & Windows compatible) and the completely new Cutting Master 3 Production Manager and Plug-in for the latest versions of CorelDRAW® and Adobe® Illustrator.
CuttingMaster 3 plug-in integrates seamlessly into these applications to apply registration marks to the layout for print and cut designs, prepare the layout for output to the plotter, and to set the cutting conditions of the plotter. The CE6000 is an economical sign making system, Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
High Speed USB 2.0 or RS232C Serial Interface
USB 2.0 (1.1 backward compatible) and RS232C ports connect with virtually any computer.
Media Supply System and Floor Stand
The precisely crafted media supply system, as an integrated part of the floor stand (standard for CE6000-60 and CE6000-120), ensures accurate loading of media material and makes demanding long-length tracking and repetitive job operations effortless. The CE6000's media tracking capability has been enhanced with the addition of the media brake feature found on Graphtec's heavy duty FC8000 series plotters.
Smart Media Management
The Auto Pre-Feed function automatically unwinds and pre-feeds roll media as need This feature enhances the plotter's tracking capability and is useful for unattended repeat jobs and long-length projects. With Auto Pre-Feed active, the CE6000 advances the media to a user-specified distance, upon recognition of plot data exceeding the pre-fed length.
