Fixing the Workpiece
Two methods are available to fix a workpiece.
• Fixing the Workpiece by Vacuum Adhesion
• Fixing the Workpiece with Adhesive Tape
• The following table shows the acceptable workpiece thicknesses (Maximum value).
Workpiece thickness
10 mm
• Four area stickers are stuck on the table. They indicate the maximum effective cutting area. Mount
the workpiece inside this area. The plotter is unable to cut outside the area indicated by the area
stickers.
Fixing the Workpiece with Adhesive Tape
During swivel cutter / tial cutter used, and set the work(thin packing, industrial rubber, etc) that can not be
properly adsorbed in vacuum , use adhesive tape, and fix the workpiece.
• Use an adhesive tape that does not leave a residue of glue or tape on the cutting panel.
Fix the four edges of the workpiece with the adhesive tape.

Fixing the Workpiece
Fixing the Workpiece by Vacuum Adhesion
Relatively thin workpieces, such as thin coated board, corrugated cardboard and sponge, can be fixed by
vacuum adhesion.
• If all the suction holes are not covered such as the following cases, use some sort of film to cover all
the remaining holes. If some of the air holes are not covered, the adhesion force may be too low to
fully fasten the workpiece.
Small workpiece and cannot
cover all the suction holes on

Basic Operations
• When cut multiple small data, please block frequently the part that was cut earlier in the following
procedure.
If continue to cut (draw) as it is, air comes in from the cut portion, and the workpiece will not be fixed.
In addition, the adsorption sheet of the cut portion is peeled off from the workpiece surface and it may
cause inferior in drawing.

• It is also possible to block the cut area other than workpiece with the supplies, adsorption sheet(SPC0787).
In that case, cut out the sheet on the workpiece with a cutter.
• The vacuum can be turned on and off by interlocking with the remote key.(

Change the cutting (plotting) order
You can reorder or sort the cut data that has been sent from the host computer to change the order for cutting
(SORTING function).
Suppose that there is data that you want to cut just like drawing a picture with a single stroke, according the
order in which data is sent from application software. But in case you cannot do it in one continuous pen stroke,
you can change the cutting order to make it.
You cannot perform such one-stroke cutting in the following cases
Some applications software send data to the plotter in the order that the data has been created and edited.
• For example, in case you have modified the data read in via scanner, you cannot cut it in one stroke as the
modified part is cut later.
When you want to cut after SORTING
With the sorting function, the plotter handles a piece of data corresponding to each cutting operation that starts
with pen down and ends with pen up as one block. After the completion of cutting one block, the plotter will
perform cutting of another block whose starting point is closest to the finished block.
For data transmitted from the host computer, the starting position
and cutting direction will not be changed.

Precautions when Creating Data with Register Marks
Several restrictions apply when creating data with register marks.
To get the best out of the register mark functions, carefully read the precautions below to gain the knowledge
required when creating register marks.
• The register marks described here are used to detect the work orientation and the lengths of the X
and Y axes. They are not crop marks.
Size of Register Marks
See "Guide to Register Mark Separation and Register Mark Size" (
register marks with respect to the data.
P.4-5) for guidelines on a side length of
1 mm
5 mm 30 mm
4-2
• Set a side length of the
register mark between
5 mm and 30 mm.
Precautions when Creating Data with Register Marks
Permitted Arrangements of Register Marks and the Design
Starting position of TP1 should be more than 10mm away from the end of workpiece and place within 10mm
from maximum cutting area.
The possible range of design placement is 610x510mm at maximum.
• When place a register mark outside the cut area (the end of the workpiece), turn on the setting of
MARK FILLUP. (

Prohibited Drawing Areas around Register Marks
Ensure that the areas around the register marks (area equivalent to the register mark size from the register mark
origin) remain free of data and dirt. Otherwise, false detection or incorrect reading of the register marks may occur.
Register Mark Reading Functions
• False detection of the register marks causes displacement of the cutting position.

False Detection of Register Marks - Example 1
Plate displacement during offset printing
• Color printing by offset printing requires the output of CMYK plates.
A slight displacement between these plates also causes a displacement of the printed register marks.
• Register mark detection on the print with plate displacement results in displacement of the register mark origin
and therefore of the cutting position.
• Therefore, when using offset printing, print the register marks on only one of the four CMYK plates
(such as printing register marks as K100%). Printing the register marks on one plate only eliminates
concerns about plate displacement.
• Determine an easily detected register mark color by considering the color of the printed workpiece.
(
P.4-6 "Register Mark Colors")

False Detection of Register Marks - Example 2

separated by at least 10 mm.

Guide to Register Mark Separation and Register Mark Size
The chart below shows a guide to the register mark separation (A) and register mark size (B).
The register marks may not be detected correctly if the register mark size (B) is too small with respect to the
register mark separation (A). Create register marks of an appropriate size.

Precautions when Creating Data with Register Marks
Register Mark Colors
The mark must be printed in black against the white background.
The registration mark will not be detected correctly if the background is not white or the mark is not black.

Bleeding or Smudging of Register Marks
If the mark is blurred, a wrong mark origin can be detected, thus resulting in deviated cutting.

Setting Register Mark Detection
Precautions Related to Register Mark Detection
• To set the distance between the printed register marks the same as the cut distance, enter the
distance between the printed register marks used for register mark detection. (
P.4-12)
• When register marks are detected, the origin is set at TP1. When the origin is moved to another
position using the jog keys, the new origin is enabled.
• Rotation is disabled.
• To detect the register mark with FineCut, select “LOWRIGHT” in the command origin setting. (

Now What Do I Do?
Problem
Inadequate cutting
• When the cutter descends, cutting is incomplete,
although the blade protrudes by more than the
workpiece thickness.
Solution
The workpiece can be reliably cut by increasing the
pressure when the cutter descends.
• Set or increase the pressure offset value that is added
to the press value.
P.2-10 "Select the tool condition"
Cutting incomplete at the start or end point Increase the start offset setting to move forward the
(Reciprocating cutter)
position where the cutter descends.
• Cutting is incomplete at the positions where the cutter
P.2-10 "Select the tool condition"
descends or ascends.
Increase the end offset setting to move backward the
position where the cutter ascends.
P.2-10 "Select the tool condition"
Cutting incomplete at the start or end point (Swivel
cutter)
Set the over cut. (
Circle start and end points do not match
• A circle start and end points can be displaced due to
the workpiece thickness and hardness.
Use circle θ correction to correct for the displacement.
Grid lines torn along flutes of corrugate cardboard.
• Tearing can occur if the press value in the cutting
conditions is too high when grid cutting along the
flutes of corrugated cardboard.
(1) Align the corrugated cardboard flutes in the Y-axis
direction.
(2) Set the Y press value in the cutting conditions.
P.2-11)
(

P.3-25)
Adjusting the Tools
Tool adjustment is required if the start and end points do not match when cutting (drawing) with the unit.
Tool adjustment is possible only when using Model R1 or Model TF2.
The following four tool adjustments are available:
(1) Cutter adjustment ............... Adjusts the cutter mounted in Head B or C.
(2) Roller adjustment ................ Adjusts a roller mounted in Head C.
(3) Circle θ correction ............... Adjustment if start and end points do not match when cutting (drawing) a
circle.
(4) Light pointer adjustment ..... Adjustments when the register marks cannot be detected.
Adjusting the Cutter

ERROR C37
MARK ORG
Arrange the registration
inside the sheet.
Registration mark detection was not
achieved. However, this error is
attributable to a false detection or a
compensation value setting error,
since the calculated compensation
value is wrong.
Correct the compensation value if it
is wrong, and perform detection
again.
The required scale compensation
value was not smaller than 1.3
times or not greater than 0.7 times.
Remove the cause of the detection
error, for example, correct the
blurred print of registration mark
data and then retry.
A detection error occurred since the
distance from the adjacent graphics
was too short.
Increase the distance from the
adjacent graphics properly, and
perform printing again.
The designateed spacing between
the registration marks is not correct.
The value of the spacing between
the registration marks designated
by the command is wrong and it is
attributable to a selection error of
data. Therefore, check the output
data.
The print is not uniform and some
graphics are omitted.
Correct the graphic data to obtain
uniform print and perform printing
again.
As the printed registration mark was
blurred, it was not read correctly
and the registration mark of the next
graphics was read by mistake.
Perform printing again with care
that the print is not blurred.
