Improved workflow efficiency with ID Cut function in RasterLink6 plus software.
The CF22-1225 cutting plotter is compatible with RasterLink6 Plus software, available for Mimaki printer models. This new, feature-rich version of the widely used Mimaki RasterLink RIP software includes an ID Cut function to make printing and cutting easier and faster. Along with registration marks, RasterLink6 plus software will include a bar code on output from a Mimaki printer driven by this version. The barcode, read by the crop mark sensor on the CF22-1225 cutting plotter, contains cutting and rotation information enabling the CF22-1225 cutting plotter to automate the cutting process. This function is particularly useful when running nested print-cut jobs, as the cutting plotter continuously reads the data for both single and ganged jobs.
Multiple cutting head and tool holder configurations.
Users can choose from several cutting heads that offer a range of tool holders to hold a variety of cutting, creasing and drawing tools, depending on the application. Swivel knife, tangential knife, reciprocating knife, creasing wheel and pen options are all available with a wide range of blade and creasing options. A broad variety of materials can be cut including corrugate, styrene and foam up to 20mm thick for packaging and POP applications; rubber, resin materials and plastics for industrial applications; and more.
Multiple connectivity options.
In addition to the legacy RS232C connection, the CF22-1225 cutting plotter also supports USB 2.0 and Ethernet connections.
Redesigned control panel.
The CF22-1225 cutting plotter features an updated user-friendly control panel with shortcut keys for the most commonly used functions and an easy to read LCD display.
Total solution for on-demand production.
The CF22-1225 cutting plotter is an ideal match with the JFX200-2513 UV-LED flatbed printer for on-demand production of seasonal POP displays or exhibit components. It is a complete system with the addition of ArtiosCAD Designer Solution software for creating custom packaging or prototypes.

Tool Head Configurations for the Mimaki CF22-1225
Knife / Pen
[ID Cut] function enables easy Print & Cut combined operation
[ID Cut] function is to print the ID information to cut and media rotation angle to be able to read the job data automatically to start cut on [CF22-1225]. It saves labor of media direction check and avoids loss of media, ink and time due to data transmission or media set failure.
[e.g.] Life-sized panel making
Flatbed inkjet printer applied with UV curing ink.
Printable area is 2,500 x 1,300mm, available to print directly on 4x8 (1,220 x 2,440mm / 4x8ft) sized media, too.
The available thickness of media is up to 50mm.

Wide range of on-demand solutions by Mimaki products combination
Combination use of Mimaki UV inkjet printer and [ArtiosCAD DS] of CAD software can offer a total solution of design of package / furniture and printing, cutting from packages till their cushioning foam material etc. Such combination use can facilitate on-demand business of sample making and tiny lot production as well, development of small lot and wide variation of products.
Moreover it realizes to save cost and lead time.

Thick material can be outline-cut with high accuracy.
With the adoption of a high performance color photo sensor, the square register marks printed on the media are detected and the position of the origin, inclination of coordinate and distance are adjusted.
This enables the operator to perform cutting at the precise position. Further, the sensor recognizes the difference of "color of media" and "color of square register marks", and enables the cutter to perform cuts accurately, while being tailored to the printed material without being influenced by the color of the media. A light pointer that is used as marker when setting the media is provided as standard device and facilitates position adjustment with square register marks.
Media is set easily and accurately
With the aid of a work-guide installed to the directions of X and Y, the positioning of the media is smooth and working efficiency has been improved. It is also possible to remove the work-guide depending on the media size.
1: Effective range of cutting
3: Work-guide plate
4: Origin seal
*Please note that the work guide is used just as a guide for setting the media and it is not intended to guarantee the distance to the origin.
Extensive line-up of cutter blades
A wide variety of cutter blades tailored to various media are provided. As one machine can process with flexibility, expand your business opportunities.
Cutter blades in the marketplace can also be used.
As the low cost cutter blades can be used, the running cost can be reduced.
Full of useful functions to support cutting
By adjusting the depth of the cutter blade, you can half-cut composite, laminated material (etc).
As two tools can be used, you can perform different types of half-cutting or diecutting without changing the tools.
Correction of starting and ending points
The starting and ending positions of cutting are corrected, which makes cut-away of the media smoother. Adjustable within the range of 0 to 2.5 mm.
Declination of starting point and ending point of a circle cutting caused by thickness or hardness of the media is corrected and cutting nearly perfect circle is available.
Pressure of tool coming down is corrected to ensure complete cutting.
Is capable of repeating the cutting up to maximum of 5 times changing the cutting pressure. With only one time of data sending, you can cut even thick material with high quality finish.
Back cutting is also possible by attaching mark chips to the back surface. From the front surface, excess cut is not seen making the finish beautiful.
Multiple registration of cutting conditions
Cutting conditions such as pressure, speed, scorrection of starting and ending points, circle θcorrection, offsets, etc. by tool may be registered for multiple times.
●Provided with felt mat required when reciprocal cutter is used.
●Various holders are available to meet a variety of material.
●Provided with a blower to securely suck and fix the media.
*Enhanced blower is also available as option.
