Vertical cutting plotter

Traditionally, the masking PVC vinyl film is cut using a small cutting plotter, then pasted onto the glass for processing.

Now, we have completely changed the production process. By using our creative ArtCut Vertical Cutting Plotter, you paste the vinyl film on the glass, cut the pattern directly on the sticker, then peel off the parts where the glass is to be sandblasted or acid etched.

How the plotter works:

With CNC technology, this vertical vinyl film cutting plotter works with "ArtEngrave" and "NcStudio" software to create drawings and control the machine. The cutter/laser is driven by three motors on the X, Y, and Z axes. The production process has totally changed, we now only need to paste the sticker onto glass and then cut the designs directly on the glass, which saves a great deal of time and effort. Corel Draw, AutoCAD, Adobe Illustrator, etc., can also be used to design the drawings. For further processing, you can sandblast the glass, acid etch the glass, or deep-carve the glass.

What are the differences between using a blade cutter and a laser cutter? 
  1. It is possible that the blade will move out of the glass due to the measurement error, and when it returns to the glass, it will strike the edge of the glass. In order to prevent the blade from breaking, the laser can cut to the edge of the glass while the blade must leave a 3 mm margin from each edge of the glass.

  2. The laser can be used to add additional etching to the glass surface after it has been sandblasted or acid etched.

  3. The laser leaves scratches on glass surface, while the blade pressure is adjustable, so it does not hurt the glass/mirror surface. In the case of sandblasting/acid etching, the scratches created by laser would not affect the result, since the scratches would be covered by the sandblasting/acid etching. 

  4. To make smart touching mirrors, the laser can be used to remove the mirror coatings.

  5. After cutting around 50 pieces of glass sheets (depending on the complexity of the design), the blade will wear out, so it will need to be replaced every few days. Lasers have a life of more than 1000 hours, and may only need to be replaced after half a year or a year.
