Features of CF2 Series


Two cutting heads : TD and RC

The two available heads for CF2 series (TD and RC) can be equipped with different kinds of blades depending on the media to be cut. Any suitable blade available on the market can be mounted.

Tangential cutter
The tangential cutter steers the blades as it cuts. The motor controlled blade lifts and turns to start every cut at the exact angle. Both die cutting and half-cutting are possible. The tangential cutter enables cutting materials up to 1 cm thickness. Various materials, ranging from soft to rigid, can be cut.

Reciprocal cutter
A reciprocal cutter is a cutting system that is characterised by up-and-down movements of the cutter blade (7000 times per minute) in addition to tangential cutting. The reciprocal cutter is especially suitable to cut corrugated board, cardboard and foam materials up to 2 cm thickness.

Head composition

Mimaki’s patented colour photo sensor

The patented Mimaki colour photo sensor reads registration marks that are printed on the media to enhance precise contour cutting of complex shapes. More precision is obtained by automatic correction of alignment and distances between the cutting data and the output. The light pointers can also be used to precisely position the media on the table.

Other useful functions of CF2 Series

Adjusting the depth of the cutter blade will enable users to die cut composite, laminated materials. Back cutting and repeated cutting are also possible with CF2 series. Other strong features include correction of starting and ending points, as well as press correction to ensure complete cutting and circle correction for cutting a nearly perfect circle.

User-friendly plug-in software

The CF2 series is included with FineCut plug-in software for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW for Windows XP and Vista.
