Mimaki Announces New Cutting Plotters

Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. specializing in industrial inkjet printers, cutting plotters and 3D printers, announces the release of new cutting plotters in three sizes with different cuttable areas: “CG-60AR (cuttable area: 606 mm width)”, “CG-100AR (cuttable area: 1,070 mm width)”, and “CG-130AR (cuttable area: 1,370 mm width)”.

For more than 30 years since 1988 of the release of the CG Series of high-accuracy cutting plotters for the signage industry we have been highly evaluated by customers around the world. As more jobs require shorter delivery times, we have received various requests such as speedy and accurate cutting of more diversified materials and beginner-friendly operability.

The “CG-AR Series” to be released this time are the reasonably-priced latest cutting plotters of entry-model with improved usability, combining more advanced cutting performance and the ability to handle a wide range of cutting materials.

The highest cutting pressure in its class of 550g and a cutting speed 105% compared with our conventional product*1 have been achieved as the basic performance. By the increasing of 50 g of cutting pressure allowing the cutting of a wider range of materials, including PVC, fluorescent and reflective sheets, and rubber sheets. Also, CG-AR Series are now capable of full cutting of cardboard. Using the dedicated optional products*2, they can produce high-quality cutouts from plain paper to cardboard, and an additional line-marking gauge enables a fold line making. These features help to create paper crafts and packages that could not be produced with the conventional models and expand not only the range of processable materials but also the range of applications.

We have also added a function that focuses on “usability” so that a variety of customers can use these products. Now that they support Windows plotter drivers, it will be easy to output data to the cutting plotter. You can send data directly from Microsoft Word, for example, without using design software such as Adobe Illustrator*3, to perform cutting. This allows you to cut and plot text and graphics easily, just like outputting them with a general office printer.*4

Moreover, support for “Mimaki Remote Access (MRA)” allows the operator to remotely use the machine and check its operation status. It would be possible through smartphone*5 or PC in the same segment network environment to operate the machine’s panel, check errors, and operational status of cutting progress etc. By running a cutting plotter from a distance without worry, the customer is provided with their desired working environment.

Also, a feature “ID Cut function” newly applied in the entry-level model further improves usability.*6  This function is used to perform Print & Cut efficiently by cooperation with Mimaki printers. By reading the printed register mark with ID, the data contained in the ID is automatically cut. Data transmission from the PC is completed with one-time operation, and once you set the printed sheet on the cutting plotter, cutting is completed automatically. Though being an entry-level model, it has achieved a cost performance that even enables unattended operation.

This selectable “usability” not available in the previous series allows a wide range of customers to build an efficient output system.

This “CG-AR Series” cutting plotter delivers overwhelming cost performance to further support your business as an entry-level model that is easy to use by both existing and new users of cutting plotters and goes beyond the normal functional limits. The product suitable for a wide range of applications such as car wrapping, wall decoration, paper crafting, and packaging, in addition to signage applications such as stickers, labels, POP, and signs will be released worldwide in April 2022.

With “Something New, Something Different” as our management vision, Mimaki Engineering will continue to push forward as an innovative company creating new value for our customers.
