Graphtec Launches New CE Series Plotter

graphtec ce7000-160 - with stand media & basket - angled

The BRAND NEW Graphtec CE series plotter is here in the guise of the CE7000 and it’s packed to the rafters with great new features some of which were once only available on the flagship FC series range of machines.

The CE series sometimes gets tagged as Graphtec’s “entry level” cutting plotter but in reality it is far more than that and is what other manufacturers would be proud to class as their flagship model. CE series plotters always benefit from the inclusion of trickle down technology from prior FC series machines which makes the CE Series one of the best value for money cutting plotters currently available.

The new 7000 version of the CE series raises the bar once again on the popular “engineering class” plotter and opens the CE up to a new wider format market for the first time with the inclusion of 130cm & 160cm versions which are bound to be a popular choice for print & cut customers.

The Ethos Of The CE Series

Typically, the CE Series has previously been most popular in the apparel, smaller print shop and sign writing environments but with the improved features and greater widths now included the CE is about to become even more popular.

Graphtec GB Says:

“The Graphtec CE Series Cutting Plotters are one of the most popular and cost effective plotter ranges on the market for users who are based in a smaller work space or use lighter grade materials.

The CE Series’ robust, no-nonsense engineering class design and build makes it perfect for life on the print shop floor and is perfect for sublimation, stickers & decals and sign writing applications.”

New Features & Benefits

The CE7000 has been completely redesigned, a new shaped chassis & aesthetic, improved stand with optional catch nets and a reinforced Y-rail for improved accuracy are just a few of the overall improvements included on this latest version.

CE7000 Stand Out New Features:
• ARMS 8.0 Print & Cut Feature For Continuous Cut Using Barcodes
• New USB Offline Operation
• Tool & Blade Holder Incorporated Into Control Panel
• Optional Catch Nets For Models Equipped With A Stand
• 4 Redesigned Widths (40cm | 60cm | 130cm | 160cm)
• New Stand Design
• Redesigned Chassis And Aesthetic

Includes Professional Grade Design Software
All Graphtec Cutting Plotters include Graphtec Pro Studio for PC users and Studio for MAC users along with a dedicated driver for integration with Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW in the form of Graphtec’s Cutting Master plug in. The quality and ease of use of these programmes really do set the Graphtec range apart from offerings by other competitors.

Graphtec Launches New FC Series Plotter

graphtec gb - fc series - fc9000 banner

Following on from the incredibly successful FC8600 Graphtec went back to the drawing board to further improve what was already a superb, class leading machine, the result is the new brand FC9000, the most feature packed Graphtec FC Series Cutting Plotter to date.

The FC9000 has been completely redesigned but continues to sport a professional, robust and no nonsense aesthetic that paired with its feature rich and ultra reliable build specification enables it to stay one step ahead of the competition.

Graphtec’s unwavering drive for perfection ensures that the FC Series continues to surpass every other machine currently available on the market.

The Ethos Of The FC Series

The FC Series is Graphtec’s flagship cutting plotter model but as a consumer it is important to know why you should opt for this model over anything else currently on the market.

Graphtec GB Says:

“An FC Series Cutting Plotter provides a higher level of productivity and greater ease of use than any other cutting plotter on the market today.

Unlike other cutting plotters on the market, the FC Series comes as standard with media catch nets, networking capabilities, built-in cross-cutter, matching stand and is also customisable to further augment what is an already class leading product with a take up spool, extra grip rollers and flange sets for increased tracking capbilities.”

With its fast cutting speed and powerful cutting head the FC is the go-to machine for industries that specialise in:
Automotive Wrapping
High Output Large Format Print & Cut Work
High Intensity Reflective Media
Intensive High Volume Print Shops

FC Series - Adaptable To You!

When looking at the FC Series plotter it is important to note that you can either purchase a standard version off the shelf or you can choose to adapt it to best fit your work flow.

The new FC9000 now features these great upgrade features which can be installed to the machine prior to delivery or added further down the line if your work increases.

Automatic Take Up Spool: For 140cm or 160cm versions*
Extra Push Rollers: To Improve Grip On Heavier Materials
Flange Kits: For Enhanced Tracking Capabilities
2nd Pen Kit: For Dual Tool Functionality

*The option for the Automatic Take Up Spool is a great addition for any user who is purchasing the FC9000 to make the most out of the new Barcode read feature of the ARMS 8.0 optical eye that enables continuous cutting capabilities.

The New Features & Benefits

This latest model of the FC has some great new features that really set it apart from the competition. The FC9000 only has one real competitor in the form of the Summa T-Series range but when you take into account their significantly higher price point for no discernible or just improvement on specification the FC Series really sits in a league of its own in the value for money category.

FC9000 New Features:
ARMS 8.0 Print & Cut Feature For Continuous Cut Using Barcodes
Optional Automatic Take Up Spool
4 Redesigned Widths (75cm | 100cm | 130cm | 160cm)
New Stand With Improved In-Built Media Catch Nets
Dedicated Push Roller Location Stations
Redesigned Chassis And Aesthetic

Includes Professional Grade Design Software
All Graphtec Cutting Plotters include Graphtec Pro Studio for PC users and Studio for MAC users along with a dedicated driver for integration with Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW in the form of Graphtec’s Cutting Master plug in. The quality and ease of use of these programmes really do set the Graphtec range apart from offerings by other competitors.
