ARMS is a  registration mark sensor for print and cut jobs , which reads registration marks and accurately contour cuts designs that are output from any printer. A new Data Link Barcode System generates barcodes as part of the design, which enables hands free operation.  Designs are then read by the FC9000-75, which automatically loads cutting information and processes print and cut jobs.   A second USB port enables jobs to be run from a USB stick, without a PC.  The LED keypad on the front of the Cutting Plotter has 8 recallable tool conditions, ideal for storing cut settings for the most commonly used media, and saving time when changing the media type.  A fast access key allows quick switching between users.  One cutter can be shared by multiple users of for multiple purposes.

Improved tracking features ensures the media is fed straight including the  media stocker which helps stabilize the feeding of the media and the adjustable push rollers which prevent media floating.  Stock media rollers with stoppers contribute to keeping the roll of media straight.  To prevent skew of long-length cutting, the auto-panelling function automatically splits long-length jobs into smaller pages that are then cut sequentially.  It shortens feed length of the media and enables a more stable cut through the machine.  This is the ideal solution when cutting a job that is potentially longer than the guaranteed long-length tracking capabilities of the FC9000.
