Introducing: Roland CAMM 1 GR2 Series Large Format Vinyl Cutters
In the realm of modern printing and graphic design, vinyl has emerged as a versatile and invaluable medium. Its adaptability makes it the canvas of choice for a wide array of applications, from vibrant banners and vehicle wraps to intricate signage and custom decals. However, the key to unlocking the full potential of vinyl lies not only in high-quality printing but also in precision cutting. The marriage of these two processes is where the magic happens, transforming digital designs into tangible works of art.
What Does Vinyl Cutter Do?
Originally, a vinyl cutter’s inception was rooted in the concept of a pen plotter primarily employed to create extensive engineering and design drawings on oversized paper sheets. The pen traversed along the x-axis in this mechanism, while the paper underwent reciprocal motion along the y-axis. Later on, a company called Gerber Scientific innovatively extended this concept by incorporating vertical pressure, enabling the installation of a cutting blade. This advancement facilitated the precise cutting of vinyl material, complete with adhesive layers and backing sheets. Prior to this development, the creation of signs predominantly relied on the labour-intensive process of hand-painting.
The invention of the vinyl cutter, coupled with computer connectivity, revolutionized the capabilities of sign painters. It empowered them to produce precise letters and graphics using durable vinyl materials, ensuring longevity outdoors for periods ranging from 3 to 7 years or more. As time progressed, an expanding array of materials emerged to cater to a diverse range of applications. In addition to adhesive vinyl of varying thicknesses, a multitude of materials were developed, including:
- Paint mask for stencils for painting and decorating applications
- Sandblast rubber resist for sandblasting signs for glass, granite and other surfaces
- Heat Transfer material for apparel.
- Tint and Paint Protection film for vehicles
