About vinyl cutter
what is a vinyl cutter?Vinyl cutters are used to produce lettering and graphics for signs, vehicles, windows and displays. Developed in the late 1980s, vinyl cutters revolutionized the sign industry and paved the way for numerous franchise and small businesses. In an industry formerly dominated by hand-lettering and screenprinting, the vinyl cutter allows the manufacture of simple signs and lettering with minimal training and artistic ability.
Vinyl Cutters size
Vinyl cutters are available in many sizes, from 6″ tabletop units to 60″ or more. Cutters are based on pen-plotters, but use a small rotating blade rather than a drawing tool. Vinyl cutters receive information sent by the computer program, and cut the required design into sheet or roll material, which is usually adhesive backed. The operator “weeds”, or removes, unwanted background material, leaving the adhesive lettering or design intact for application.
Vinyl Cutting Material
Cutting material, or “media,” is purchased by the roll or sheet. Numerous colors are available, as are varying grades, finishes and thicknesses. Although the most common media is self-adhesive vinyl, specialty applications may use sandblasting mask, airbrushing and painting mask, ink-impregnated decal material for heat-applied garment decorating and opaque masking film.
Vinyl Cutter Features
There is a large price difference between similarly sized and equipped machines. Aside from usual features–such as feed mechanisms, floor stands and media-catch trays–internal components separate entry-level machines from industrial-quality units.
Buffer size: Buffers are internal storage devices that allow machines to process job-cutting information sent from the computer. Larger buffer sizes offer increased production and efficient use of time. Usual buffer sizes are from 1 to 5 megabytes.
