Chapter 1 — Description
General Information
The cutter is a factory-installed or field-installable option for the EasyCoder PM4i printer. The cutter automatically cuts off the media after
printing according to instructions in the controlling firmware. The cut
off portions of media are presented at the front of the cutter and can be
collected on a removable tray.
The cutter can be tilted forward to facilitate media load. As a safety measure, the cutter can only operate when being completely closed.
The cutter prevents an optional label taken sensor from working, even if
it not necessary to remove it before fitting the cutter.

Chapter 1 — Description
Media
The cutter is primarily intended to cut paper-based media in the form
of continuous stock. It is also possible to cut through the liner between
labels, but be careful not to cut through the labels themselves, because
the adhesive will stick to the cutting blade and may cause malfunction.
Avoid cutting soft plastic-based media.
Minimum media thickness:
78µm
Maximum media thickness:
175µm
