Vinyl cutters, just as regular printers, are output devices, which are automatically controlled by the computer. But instead of printing ink, the cutter cuts out objects such as fonts or geometric shapes from self-adhesive materials using a small knife. Usually self-adhesive films are used, but the vinyl cutter can handle all materials consisting of two layers, i.e. have a so-called carrier. With adhesive films, this carrier is usually a silicone paper. During a cut process, the vinyl cutter's blade only cuts the film itself. The material's carrier remains intact and holds the newly designed sticker (referred to as a plot in technical language) together, until it is transferred to the desired surface.
Cutting plotters are used by companies as well as in the private sector. There are virtually no limits on creativity.
Every company needs to advertise for itself, but advertising is often far too expensive for small to medium-sized businesses. The vinyl cutter can offer relief. The vinyl cutter is the central device in a company to use in advertising. It doesn’t only save a large amount of money, but also provides plenty of room to develop your own creativity and ideas. With a vinyl cutter, you can, for example, advertise in the following ways, quickly and easily:
corporate vehicle signage
Design of the shop window advertising
Creating banners and stadium advertising at events
Design of the premises of the Company (Room label, signs, screening applications, design elements)
Production of stickers and labels as so-called Print&Cut applications - first you print on eg. sign vinyl, then contour-cut with the vinyl cutter.
Vinyl cutters used for home applications
Anyone who wants to individually create his personal environment will find a vinyl cutter to be the right tool. With these machines, many different creative ideas can be realized like this selection shows
customized wall tattoo
create kitchen surfaces
Hobby applications in the fields of decoration, model making, etc.
Creating templates for painting colorful wall design including banners, ornaments, children's artwork)
individual design of garments like t-shirts, jackets, sweat shirts etc. with flock or flex film
When choosing the correct plotter, apart from productivity, considerations regarding operation and menu navigation, especially the maximum cutting width, is crucial. The bigger the sticker, the greater the model of cutter should be selected. So for the creation of fashion, the creation of company signs, and for creating individual living spaces through walls and kitchen tattoos, is usually a 30cm model the best choice. Good value for money for example, the Secabo C30IV Cutters (33cm cutting width).
A larger vinyl cutter is a great option for marking vehicles, for designing banners and shop window advertising, etc. Particularly reliably models are the Secabo C60IV vinyl cutter (maximum cutting width: 63cm) and the Secabo C120IV vinyl cutter (maximum cutting width: 126cm)
For use in daily production operation, we recommend a S-Series cutter, which is a device with servo motors, which offer higher precision, faster cuts and a lower noise level. Cutters are available with 63cm cutting width - the Secabo S60 and 126cm width - the Secabo S120.
For modern Print&Cut applications, the contour-precise cutting of pre-printed material, the T60 or T120 with LAPOS XPT, one of the world's best continuous multi crop mark detection feature for extensive plots might be the ideal solution.
