Plotter Cutter RoboPro CE5000-40-CRP

The RoboPro CE5000-40-CRP is a cutting plotter. It is a system which achieves high-speed (max 60cm/s) and fair precision (down to ~500µm) cutting (max media thickness 250µm, range of guaranteed precision ~350mm X 2m). In addition to cutting adhesive films or other media, it can also be used as a pen plotter.

II. Preparing the blade CMI


All blades features are given HERE

Adjust the blade length by turning the blade-length adjustment knob. Turn the knob clockwise to extend the blade or counter-clockwise to retract the blade. When the knob is turned by one scale unit, the blade moves approximately 0.1mm (knob full turn = 0.5mm).

PlungerBlade medium

If the blade is extended too far in relation to the thickness of the medium being cut, it will damage the cutting mat. Assuming that the medium thickness is t, the blade length l should be equal or slightly greater than t. Make sure l is never greater than the combined thickness of the medium and its backing sheet.

Note: if it is not possible to accurately determine the medium thickness, adjust the blade length by gradually increasing it until only traces of the blade appear on the backing sheet after a cutting test is conducted.

III. Loading a medium CMI

If the REALIGN ROLLERS message is displayed, one (or both) of the push rollers is not correctly positioned. Check it again.

Alignment marks

Pressing the up and down arrow keys on the front panel displays ROLL1 PRESS ENTR, ROLL2 PRESS ENTR and SHEET PRESS ENTR. Select SHEET [...] when using a sheet or ROLL1 [...] or ROLL2 [...] when using a roll.

Note: SHEET [...] and ROLL1 [...] set the corner of the medium as the origin point (automatic detection of front and rear edges). ROLL2 [...] sets the current setting position as the origin point.

V. Doing a cutting test CMI

Test cutting can be done ONLY after specifying the cutter-blade length, OFFSET, FORCE, SPEED and QUALITY settings to ensure that the selected cutting conditions produce the desired results.
