In the case where the pressure is smaller than 20 g, set the speed using a 10 cm/sec
as a guide. If the speed is higher than the appropriate value, the tool can rise to
produce blurred characters or a portion that remains uncut.
In case setting an over 1200mm width sheet, the maximum cutting speed is limited
up to 60cm/s to protect the sheet.( Even if the cutting speed is set to 60cm/s and
above, the cutting speed is limited maximum at 60cm/s.)
When setting a cut line segment to over 1000 mm, the maximum cutting speed is
limited to 60cm/s.
In the CG-160FXII (Plus), since the distance from the drive motor on the left of the
device is wide creating a wide cut, and the quality of the cut declines as the cutting
position reaches the left edge, make sure you reduce the speed to unify the quality of
all cut segments. Therefore, the cutting speed appears to be slower when the cut line
segment is short.
When speed limiting has been performed, the display indication speed is not
restricted.

Notes on mark detection
*
To make the distance between registration marks equal to the cutting length, input
the distance between printed marks found by the mark detecting function. In this
case, scale correction between the registration marks is prior to distance correction
in the function.
If changes the distance correction value, the scale correction between the
registration marks will be invalid.
*
Clear the origin position, sheet slope correction, and the scale correction o f the
registration marks by turning over the clamp lever toward you.
*
Once the device detects marks, the origin will be established at the location of TP1. If
you establish another origin at a different location using the jog key (arrow key), the
origin will be rendered effective.
*
The rotating function is rendered ineffective.

Method to detect registration marks
Registration marks are detected in two different ways; full-automatic detection and semi-automatic
detection. Use the semi-automatic function when no TP1 is at the bottom right of the sheet, or using
FineCut attached to cutting software.
*
If the sheet is curling up, straighten the sheet.
*
Use a sheet which has neither stains nor images in the area (A) located between
TP1 and TP2 and in the area (B) located between TP1 and TP3.
Confirm sheet slope by a light pointer
Pull clamp lever down and the pinch rollers upholds to light the light pointer. The carriage is
manually moved from side to side.
Pull clamp lever down, and manually move the carriage between TP and TP3 to confirm the sheet
slope with a line of the light pointer. Adjust the sheet slope according to the line.
*
In case no action performed for five minutes after pulling clamp lever down, the light
pointer will automatically go out.
Full-automatic detection of marks
It enables to compensate the difference in length of the registration marks between printed length

Uncut parts on the corner [ADJ-PRS OFS]
If some uncut parts on the starting point and the end point, increase the value. Due to the low pressure on
the cutter blade, some parts remain uncut.
When using a slant blade (supplied as an option), some corner parts under 120- degree angle may remain
uncut.
120°
This is due to performing cutting automatically with lower pressure (approx.5 g) on the corners.
Some corners may enable to remain uncut for the lower cutting pressure prevents smoothly turning to the
direction of movement. In case this, the setting enables to up the cutting pressure for smooth cutting on the
corners.
In contrast, if the corner is not cut finely due to the high pressure, decreasing of the pressure offset may
improve the cutting.
