3-2 Installing the Cutter
Always make sure the power switch is OFF before installing (or replacing) the cutter.
Do not touch the tip of the blade with your fingers, as the cutting performance of the blade will be impaired.
Installation
Push-pin
(1) Insert a blade into the blade holder until it snaps into place
with an audible click.
Blade holder
* Take care not to break or
chip the blade.
Blade
*Adjusting the Cutter Blade
The amount of cutter blade extension can be adjusted by rotating
the cap. Refer to the figure below to adjust the blade before
installing it on the tool carriage.
Each indicator tick
corresponds to 0.1
mm, and adjustment
for 0.5 mm can be
made by rotating the
cap one full turn
Amount of Cutter Blade Extension
2.5 mm : For a material included with the unit, or a general type
of equivalent material
0 mm
: For materials where the carrier paper is thin with respect
to the material (material thickness), and cutting is carried
out without fine adjustment of blade force
For cases where material thickness is not accurately
known
* When set to "0 mm," perform a cutting test and gradually extend
the blade. If the blade leaves a faint mark on the carrier paper,
the amount of blade extension is optimal.
• Take care to ensure that the amount of blade extension
does not exceed the thickness of the material portion plus
the thickness of the carrier paper.

There is no particular restriction on material length (vertical dimension). This means that you can use either flat materials such as
standard-size materials (ANSI, ISO, etc.) and cut materials, or roll materials. The grit rollers (pinch rollers that secure the material)
vary from one model to another, and settable ranges are determined for the left and right movable pinch rollers. Setting a pinch roller
outside the allowed range causes an error message to appear.
Reference — Material Loading Position
• The middle pinch roller is used as an auxiliary roller. Be sure to use the left and right pinch rollers to secure the
material in place.
• When loading a material, make sure that it passes over the material sensor above the platen. The size of the material
cannot be determined unless the material passes over the sheet sensor.

Check alignment during the test to make sure it is free of offset and alignment problems, diagonal feed problems, and pinch roller
handling problems.
If there are any problems, the material was not loaded straight. Repeat the procedure over again, starting from step (3).
If you turn on “PREFEED” on the display menu, when cutting data is received from the computer (even without using “AREA” to
feed the material), cutting will be performed automatically after feeding 1 m (39-3/8") of material. To prevent material offset and
alignment problems, we recommend making it a habit to feed the material with the “AREA” function after loading.
For details on settings for “PREFEED”, refer to "8 Display Menu Lists."
Loading Flat Material (Standard-size Material, Cut Material, Etc.)
• If the material curls toward the material face (cut face), it will cause the material to slip when loaded onto the PNC1860/1410/1210, and may adversely affect cutting. In this case pre-bend the material downward so that the material
edge is not caught the front cover and guard bar during operation.
• If the material strikes the shaft that is installed on the stand, then remove the shaft.
(1) Pass the material between the pinch rollers and the grit
rollers.

3-5 Cutting Test - Setting Cutting Speed, Blade Force, and Blade Compensation
For optimum performance, it is necessary to set cutting conditions that match the material, giving consideration to the material's
thickness and type of material. The PNC-1860/1410/1210 has an internal "cutting test" to check the cutting conditions. This
“cutting test” allows you to determine settings for the cutting speed, blade force and the amount of offset.
Experiment with different settings for different types of material and adjust the configuration accordingly.
Procedure
(1) Install a blade and load a material, then close the front cover (see "3-2 Installing the
Cutter" to "3-3 Loading the Material).

the offset value is set correctly. When the offset value has
been correctly set, the corners of the figure should appear
cleanly cut as shown in A of the figure below. If the offset
value is too small, the corners will appear slightly rounded
as illustrated by B; an offset value which is too large will
result in a cut figure similar to C.
If the material was not cut correctly in steps (1) through (4) of the cutting test, change the cutting conditions.
Repeat the cutting test and adjustment until the optimal cutting speed, blade force, and blade compensation are found.

• Cutting extends through the base paper, and
normal advancing of the sheet becomes impossible.
• The unit suffers damage.
Corners flare outward, with "horns."
For Materials with a Strong Adhesive Layer
If you are using a material with a strong adhesive layer, the adhesive layer may adhere to itself immediately when cut. This means
that even though the material has actually been cut, it may appear as if it has not been cut, and blade force may mistakenly be set too
high.
If a cutting test shows that the material peels easily and the blade traces on the carrier paper are optimal, then the material is
being cut. Take care not to set the blade force excessively high.
3-6 Downloading Cutting Data
The unit will begin cutting when it receives cutting data sent from computer.
Software Setting
When cutting with commercially available application software, select PNC-1860/1410/1210 as the setting for the output device.
If the PNC-1860/1410/1210 cannot be selected, choose any model in the PNC-1850, PNC-1200, PNC-950 or PNC-900. (These

3-7 Applying the Completed Cutout
• Make sure beforehand that the surface where the work is to be stuck is clean and free of all dust or oily deposits.
• When applying the work to a transparent surface, such as a window, you can use a water-based pen (which can be
wiped off) after wards to mark guidelines on the reverse side of the glass, to aid in getting the work aligned
properly.
• If you discover after it is stuck in place that air bubbles were trapped under the work, use a needle to puncture them.
Then you can smooth out the material so that it sticks securely.
(1) Open the front cover.
(3) Stick application tape over the completed work.
For roll material
Use the cutter tool to cut off the completed portion
from the roll.
Press down firmly or use a squeegee on the application
tape to remove air bubbles. If you do not press firmly
enough the cut area will not stick to the surface.
For a Flat Material (Standard-size
Material, Cut Material, Scrap, Piece, Etc.)
Lower the sheet loading levers and remove the
material from the PNC-1860/1410/1210.
* If a portion that can still be cut remains, then
instead of removing the material, use the cutter
tool included with the unit to detach the portion
that has been cut, just as is done when using a
rolled material.
(4) Carefully apply the work at the desired location, while
keeping it as straight as possible. Rub over the
application tape to make sure the work is firmly stuck

4 CARE AND MAINTENANCE
• Always turn off the PNC-1860/1410/1210 before cleaning it.
• Never lubricate the mechanisms.
• Use a small amount of water or alcohol for cleaning. Never use solvents such as benzene or thinner can smooth out the material
so that it sticks securely.
Cleaning the body
Use water or alcohol to clean, and wipe gently with a clean cloth. Wipe the operation panel and display gently with a clean, soft
cloth.
Cleaning the platen
If the platen is dirty clean with alcohol or water and wipe gently with a cloth.
Cleaning the grit rollers
With the sheet loading levers lowered and the pinch rollers raised, use a commercially
available brush to remove dust and other detritus. Brush horizontally while rotating the
grit rollers.
If dust builds up it may prevent the paper from being held securely, and degrade plot
precision.
Cleaning the pinch rollers
With the sheet loading levers lowered and the pinch rollers raised, use a cloth moistened with water or alcohol and wipe gently
to clean.
Cleaning the front cover
Use water or alcohol and clean with a soft cloth. If severe a neutral detergent may be used. Never use anything other than water,
alcohol or a neutral detergent.
Cleaning the blade holder cap
If material debris is adhering to the inner surface of the cap for the blade holder, loosen and remove the cap, then remove the
material debris.

The cutting area along the horizontal plane (the direction in which the tool carriage moves) is determined by the position of the pinch
rollers. The workable area spans the length between the two rollers, minus a margin of about 1 mm (about 0.04") on both sides.
If the material length is greater than 1,600 mm (62-15/16") when a flat material (paper) has been loaded, the PNC-1860/1410/
1210 determines it to be a rolled material and sets the material length to 24,998 mm (984-1/8").

3 CROPMARK
This is used when cutting around pre-printed graphics on a material, such as when making stickers or seals. With the PNC-1860/1410/
1210, a material is always loaded parallel to the unit. This means that unless the graphics to be cut have been printed parallel to the
material, the cutting lines become shifted from the graphics, and it becomes impossible to accurately cut around the graphics (see Figure
A below). If the printed graphics have crop marks, the positions of the crop marks can be stored in memory and used as reference points
by the PNC-1860/1410/1210. By making this setting, it becomes possible to cut around graphics with accuracy even when the graphics
have not been printed parallel to the material (Figure B).

9 BLADES AND MATERIALS
This section indicates the proper cutting conditions for various types of materials, as well as blade lifespans. Cutting conditions
and blade life vary according to the hardness of the material and the usage environment. Making the settings for the conditions
described below does not automatically guarantee attractive cutting results in all situations. Before performing actual cutting, be
sure to carry out a cutting test and make any necessary adjustments (see "3-5 Performing a Cutting Test"). If the material is not
cut through completely even when the tool force is increased by 50 to 60 gf more than the tool force values shown below, it
means that the useful life of the blade has ended. Replace with a new blade.

10 PLOTTING ON PAPER MEDIA
Before cutting, plotting using pen and paper can ensure that your design is correct without wasting materials.
This feature can also be used to plot template designs on thick materials that may not be able to be cut.
* Since the design of the PNC-1860/1410/1210 differs inherently from that of dedicated plotters, it does not accommodate
functions such as high-speed plotting, automatic pen changes, pen dry protection, or the like.
Acceptable pens and paper media
Do not load coated paper. The coating may flake or peel off and adhere to the grit rollers, making it impossible to perform
cutting (or plotting) correctly.
• Paper : high-quality paper
PNC-1860 : between 90 mm (3-2/1") and 1372 mm (54") in width
PNC-1410 : between 90 mm (3-2/1") and 1067 mm (42") in width
PNC-1210 : between 50 mm (1-15/16") and 762 mm (30") in width
• Pen
Water based fiber tipped pen
Thick water based fiber tipped pen
32 color plotter pens
Menu Settings for Plotting
To perform plotting on a material of paper or the like, first use the display menus to make the settings described below.
1. Tool No. (See "7 Display Menu Lists/Setting cutting conditions/1—8" )
When "4. Blade offset" is set to "0.000 mm," the tool number shown on the upper line of the display changes from "CUT" to "PEN."
Select the tool number to be set and make the settings for conditions 2 through 5. Please note that if a tool number for which cutting
conditions have previously been set is selected, the earlier conditions are deleted.
2. Pen Speed (see "Adjusting cutting speed • force • blade compensation" )
Water based fiber tipped pen/32 color plotter pens/Thick water based fiber tipped pen: 10—50 cm/sec
Set a low Pen Speed value to ensure clear plots with no faintness.
3. Pen Force (see "Adjusting cutting speed • force • blade compensation" )
Water based fiber tipped pen/32 color plotter pens : 30—60 gf
Thick water based fiber tipped pen
: 35—120 gf
4. Blade compensation (see "Adjusting cutting speed • force • blade compensation")
Set this to "0.00 mm."
5. Cut quality (see "7 Display Menu Lists/Setting cutting conditions/NORMAL (CUT QUALITY)" )
Set this to "Normal."
6. Setting for pen change instructions
If CAD software for plotting use has been used to output data (in RD-GL I format), pen-change instructions are sent to the PNC1860/1410/1210. If the pen is to be changed during plotting, use "1. Tool number" to set the tool numbers to be used to match the
pen numbers set with the software. Because tool changes are not necessary when cutting is performed, the PNC-1860/1410/1210 is
ordinarily set not to accept pen-change instructions. This setting makes it possible to enable the PNC-1860/1410/1210 to accept and
execute pen-change instructions.

Is the sheet being cut blocked at some
position?
Make sure that the left and right edges of the sheet do not touch the inner
surfaces, front cover of the PNC-1860/1410/1210 during cutting. Such contact
may not only damage the sheet, but could also make normal sheet advancing
impossible and cause the sheet to slip.
27
The sheet slips away from the pinch rollers during the cutting process
If the front edge of the sheet you are working with is at an angle, cut off the odd-shaped
part to make it straight, then align it so that it is parallel with the grit roller.
Make sure the sheet is parallel
with the grit roller.
If the sheet is fed for a long distance, the sheet will be less likely to slip out of
alignment if the pinch rollers are moved inward slightly (5 to 25 mm).
When a roll sheet is loaded, use the display menu “AREA” function to feed a sheet by
the length to be used (ensure a small margin by setting a length that is about 0.1 m
longer than the cutting data), make sure the pinch rollers are still in contact with the
sheet (not off the left or right edges, or on the edges), and then cut.
If the sheet is pulled while cutting it is more likely that sheet misalignment and motor
errors will occur.
11-2 Error messages
An error message will appear if incoming data has any of the errors listed in table. Since the error is shown in the display for
informational purposes, the data transfer continues and you are allowed to perform the next operation.
To get the error message to go away, press the ENTER key.
Note that even though the error message is no longer displayed after you press thee ENTER key, the PNC-1860/1410/1210 will retain
in memory the fact that the error occurred. To clear the error internally, you can give the default instruction, IN; or the error code
output instruction, OE. (The error can be cleared by turning the power off.)
The error messages and their meanings are as follows:
