The FC9000 Series Cutting Plotter offers the user more features than ever before giving the FC9000 a deserved best in class tag line!

Best In Class Capabilities
The FC9000 Series offers best in class productivity and abilities with a wider range of compatible media.

Wide Cutting Area For Full Media Use
All FC9000 models have a minimum cutting width of 50mm, the maximum cut width is determined by the width of machine you opt for.

To prevent skew of long-length cutting, the auto-paneling function automatically splits long-length jobs into smaller pages that are then cut sequentially. It shortens feed length of the media and enables a more stable cut through the machine. This is the ideal solution when cutting a job that is potentially longer than the guaranteed long-length tracking capabilities of the machine.

User-Friendly Built-In Control Panel
Save 2 user settings with 8 condition settings for each user. A fast access key allows quick switching between users. One cutter can be shared by multiple users or for multiple purposes.

Improved & Increased Long-Length Tracking
The FC9000 supports long-length tracking of up to 15m as standard. For the wider 140 or 160cm wide models there is a now an automatic take up roller option which can be added to the plotter prior to purchase.
This take up roller increases tracking accuracy up to 20m.

Data Output Via USB Flash Memory Without PC
When cutting data designed with Graphtec Pro Studio and sent with cutting Cutting Master 4 are saved to USB flash memory, they can be output directly to the cutting plotter by plugging in the USB drive directly into the plotter which means the machine can be used without the need for a computer.
