Graphtec GB introduces new Silhouette CAMEO multi-purpose desktop cutter

The Silhouette CAMEO multi-purpose desktop cutter.Leading supplier of high-end, highperformance plotter/cutters to the sign and graphics and digital printing industries, Graphtec GB has introduced a new desktop cutter that will be of special interest to producers of small-format soft signage, point-of-sale displays and print wear and promotional products.

A new and larger version of the popular Silhouette cutter, the Silhouette CAMEO requires only a standard USB cable linked to a PC or MAC system to enable cutting of printed materials as diverse as card stock, paper, vinyl, textiles and much more up to an extended width of 12 inches and a depth of 10 feet. This will allow owners to cut edge-to-edge on a 12 x 12-inch sheet, with an innovative and patented roller design enabling the cutter to take A4 or letter-sized sheets to maximise material usage.

The Silhouette Cameo is extremely smooth in operation and comes with a host of advanced design features. Most notably, these include Graphtec's proprietary ARMS 4.0 (Advanced Registration Mark System) that provides four-point registration rather than the traditional three-point registration to enable greater accuracy of cut, higher productivity and minimal material wastage. Four-point registration mark sensing and two-axes correction ensures high precision cutting of images that may have become distorted during the printing process. Since all registration marks are detected automatically, there is no need to move the sensor to the first registration mark and subsequent registration marks are automatically re-detected if a sensing error does occur.

Other key design features include a new type of cutting head to enable die-cutting of thicker materials, a new 10-stage micro-adjustable cutting tool that dispenses with the need to use the original cutting tips, 51 exclusive cutting designs and dedicated software that is compatible with Windows XP, Vista 7 and MAC platforms. An easy-to-navigate user instruction manual and tutorial DVD are also supplied as part of the package.

The Silhouette Cameo cutter has a recommended retail price of less than £300.00 (inclusive of VAT) and therefore represents an outstanding value-for-money investment.
