Launched on 7 March and available for immediate shipment, the GR series supercedes the GX series and has been redesigned “from the ground up”, according to the manufacturer, with improved speed and accuracy, increased media options and additional cutting features.
The GR models are available in 42”, 54” and 64” widths, priced at £3,999, £4,250 and £4,750 respectively. They can cut at a top speed of 1,485mm/s with up to 600g of downforce and they feature electronically adjustable pinch-rollers with 10 variable pressure settings to deal with different substrate types.
The GR series is a complete overhaul of the GX series, incorporating a new cutting carriage and blade holder design, amongst other core functions, and features a new L-shape stand design creating a more stable structure. The cutters can read crop marks on pre-printed data to align graphics accurately while the overlap cutting function allows for up to ten times overlap cutting for difficult-to-cut substrates.
