Roland introduces Camm1 vinyl cutters

Roland DG has announced a new GR range of vinyl cutters for the wide format print market, which will be added to its existing Camm-1 series.

The new Roland Camm-1 GR series of vinyl cutters comes in three different sizes.

These new cutters have been redesigned to be faster and more accurate, with a new integrated stand that gives greater stability. They can now achieve a maximum cutting speed of 1,485mm/s and up to 600g of downforce for cutting through difficult media with a single pass. There’s a choice of three sizes – 1,651mm, 1,397mm and 1,075mm – which can be paired with similar sized printers.

The GR cutters can read crop marks to align graphics. They’re fitted with electronic pinch rollers with ten pre-set pressure levels to help smoothly feed different types of materials. There’s an overlap cutting function that allows for up to ten times overlap cutting for difficult-to-cut substrates. It’s said to give similar results to a tangential cutter with sharp, clean corners even on difficult media.

The new cutters come with Roland’s CutStudio software, which includes plug-ins for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw. It has a perforating cutting function that is convenient for making die-cut effect stickers and decals, and a cut-by-colour function that is useful when outputting designs with multiple coloured sheets. It can automatically create weed lines for more efficient weeding after designs have been cut.

Yohei Shinomura, Roland DG’s product manager, says the market for cutters has become increasingly diverse, adding: “In addition to sign making, cutting now includes the production of window and vehicle graphics, window tinting and car protection film for automotive restyling, personalised apparel, labels and decals, packaging prototypes, paint/sandblast stencils and more. The breadth of applications demands the ability to handle a wide range of materials of varying thicknesses, such as window films, high intensity reflective materials, heat transfer materials including flock and glitter, cardboard, and sandblast mask.”
