Subcontracting the production of small decals, seals and business proposal dummies in minor quantities is often comparatively expensive and inefficient. Looking for small cutting plotters to process such knickknacks.
Major cost reduction on minor lot production with CFL-605RT. Extremely handy and easy to use. Internal production facilitates the perception of progress from production to shipment, greatly reducing in-corporate stress. Additionally, CFL handles the troublesome hand-crafting of planning samples, freeing the marketing personnel from the task and enhancing business efficiency not to mention the proposing power.

When a roll-type small cutting plotter was used, media setting was difficult and thus preparation was time-consuming. We also wanted to increase the cutting accuracy.
CFL-605RT has higher accuracy and easier setting than the roll-type counterpart, making the downtime very short. Since the cutting speed is also fast, time loss and media loss are significantly reduced. The sense of “quick creation and show” becomes effective in up-selling during proposal phase.
POP-Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. (Osaka city, Osaka)Mimaki user stories
When cutting storefront POP items into odd shapes, a relatively large cutting plotter was used or manual cutting was performed, which made it difficult to achieve delicate cutting. With a conventional machine, small defects were found, such as visible cuts made on the back side, and the overflow of adhesives created on media with adhesives, which caused stains.
Introduction of CFL-605RT enables precise, perfect cutting, which increases technical and proposal skills of the company. More products are adopted at a sample creation phase. There is no failure due to manual cutting, which reduces wasted production costs.
