Data Link Barcode System allows cutting different jobs with different data sequentially by detecting the Start Mark of each new job. By reading the Graphtec barcode, the FC9000 automatically detects its linked data from a PC or USB Drives. This function is available regardless of printer or RIP software used.

The FC9000 Series barcode data management system allows the Continuous Cutting of multiple jobs with different data sequentially by detecting the Start Mark of each new job.

With Multiple Mark Compensation, the FC9000 can significantly increase your productivity. Contour cutting is repeated for each copy, cutting production time for Print & Cut applications.

Auto Paneling automatically splits long-length jobs into smaller pages that are cut sequentially to prevent skewing.
