Roland DG has announced the launch of its most advanced desktop cutter ever: the CAMM-1 GS-24. The cutting plotter offers increased cutting power and precision, a host of high-performance features, and unsurpassed reliability.
The GS-24's robust build quality, redesigned cutting carriage and blade holder, 10x overlap cutting capability, and 350g of downforce (a 40% increase from its predecessor) allow users to cut a variety of materials from 50 to 700 mm wide – including thick, dense substrates – with ease and accuracy. Equipped with a powerful, durable digital servomotor, the GS-24 is built for optimum efficiency, versatility and productivity. It's capable of cutting vinyl, paint mask, twill, heat transfers – even magnetic materials and card stock – at speeds of up 500 mm per second. With its combined power, speed and accuracy, the GS-24 is an unbeatable tool for creating high quality vehicle graphics, signs and decals, decorated apparel, specialty graphics and more. Perforated cutting capability also makes producing labels and decals for individual sale a simple task.
While technologically advanced, the GS-24 is incredibly user-friendly. A newly-designed LCD panel allows for convenient monitoring and control, while a precise blade groove on the cutter's apron ensures easy manual cutting. There's also an included roller base that keeps feeds straight for a precise cut each and every time. The bundled Roland CutStudio™ software lets you enlarge, reduce, reposition, rotate and mirror images quickly and easily. An improved tiling function makes cutting oversized images a breeze, and you can even cut TrueType® fonts without the need for outlining. CutStudio supports BMP, JPG, STX, AI and EPS file formats, as well as the ability to cut directly from Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW®.
"Since Roland released the first CAMM-1 cutter in 1988, more than 420,000 cutters have been sold around the world", said Satoko Yoshida, Roland DG's global marketing general manager. "Continuous research, innovation and an in-depth understanding of the needs and wants of the market, have led to the development of our new GS-24 – the most productive, easiest to use desktop cutter in CAMM-1 history. Users, even those who are not familiar with digital cutting, will find it simple to achieve outstanding results with the GS-24 over a wide range of applications."
