BLOG: New Mimaki AR Series Cutters offer high performance at an entry level price

Mimaki’s newest cutting plotters, the 60cm wide CG-60AR and its 130cm stablemate, the CG-130AR recognise customer demand for increased speed and accuracy, yet maintain user-friendly operation whilst offering a diverse range of applications.

The new CG-60AR is an ideal solution for personalisation businesses, with its compact benchtop footprint (an optional stand is also available) and class leading, 550g cutting pressure. Suitable for cutting everything from garment film to self-adhesive vinyl, an optional craft kit turns the new plotter into a powerful card cutter, opening up gift and greetings products as well as packaging prototyping applications.

The Mimaki CG-60AR incorporates an optical eye for detecting printed registration marks and Mimaki’s proprietary ID Cut function for seamless print and cut coordination when combined with a Mimaki printer. Shipped with Mimaki’s FineCut plugin for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW, the CG-60AR will also output through a Windows driver reducing the need for specialist design software – making it a simple to operate system for users looking to cut lettering and graphic designs for applying to shirts, bags and other soft goods, as well as many more applications.

The 1.3m wide Mimaki CG-130AR offers similar functionality to its smaller sibling and with its larger size, makes for the perfect partner to a Mimaki 100 Series solvent, UV or dye sublimation printer in a print and cut system.

Offering a great opportunity to diversify into new areas, the new Mimaki CG-AR cutters are simple to use, and integrate seamlessly with Mimaki printers when a print and cut workflow is required. Both cutters are available now through our network of authorised reseller partners.
