Options for flatbed cutters

AutomaticEye System

The intelligent camera system enables quick and exact cutting of printed patterns. For that purpose the system first identifies the reference marks through the camera, which is integrated in the MultiHead or available as a stand-alone tool. Compensation values are calculatetd fully automatically for material not right angled to the table top, print distortion or material changes and so guarantees an exact cutting of the contour.

ARISTO options - AutomaticEye system

Projection System

The cutting contours are projected onto the cutting surface of the ARISTO®. Thereby, an optimal utilisation of material and the processing of remnants becomes much easier. For the cutting or visually checking of irregularly shaped material, the projection system considerably reduces the amount of work.

  • Projection of the contour on the ARISTO® true to scale
  • Best possible material utilisation, especially for remnants
  • Less waste due to optimal placement of the contour
  • Available for ARISTO® series GL, TL and LFC

Material Transport

Our tailored winding and unwinding equipment for light to heavy material rolls is automating the continual material transport for every application. The product range also allows a precise continued cutting of overlong jobs with successive material feed cycles, necessary e.g. when cutting foils.

Material Registration

ARISTO options - Material Registration

Material Position Detection

With the Material Position Detection a misalignment of the material can be determined and compensated. For this purpose, up to four material edges are scanned at several positions in X- and/or Y-direction with a contrast or reflex edge sensor. This is especially important when a contour is to be cut exactly at one certain position.

ARISTO options - Barcode Reader

Mobile Barcode Reader

The automatic procedure can be supple-mented by a mobile Barcode Reader, which can identify the plot file by means of a barcode printed on the pattern and automatically allocates to the corresponding cutting data.


Know-how memory for cutting processes

The know-how data base CutRecall consistently increases the performance of the ARISTO® Cutter. New work processes can be set up more quickly and the efficiency increased. With CutRecall the complex material and process specific parameter settings are saved and retrieval for a further work process takes place as fast as lighting.

  • dialog-controlled data backup after a process run
  • reducing of setup times
  • fast data retrieval by mouse-click
  • avoid input errors

Cutter Software

All common Work Software with HPGL-output can be used for creating and optimizing cut-files for the ARISTO® (e.g. SAi Flexi, Engview, cncCut, AutoCAD, PEAKTOURe,  PROCUT, Optiscout, … and many more …). All major print-software supports ARISTO as well.

ARISTO Designer – Packaging & Display Software

ARISTO Package & Display Designer is 2D and 3D software specially developed to improve the packaging and the POP/POS displays production. It is compatible with Adobe® Illustrator® and supports the entire workflow, from the concept design and 3D assembly to artwork arrangement and generation of plotter files.


  • Smart Drafting with parametric components
  • 3D modelling with realistic 3D PDF generation
  • Support of ECMA, FEFCO and Xanita codes

The software is available for the packaging sector as well as for the display sector or as a bundle. For more information see www.engview.com →

cncCUT for the construction of gaskets

Thanks to extensive CAD functionality and intuitive user guidance, cncCUT is particularly suitable for creating data for cutting seals.

Very easily and without any prior knowledge, you can quickly create drawings yourself with the integrated CAD system IBECad or load macros and DXF drawings into the software. The drawings automatically receive technology data from cncCUT. The software suggests optimized travel and minimizes idle travel. Each setting in the program can be edited manually if required.

For material optimization, the modules Contour Nesting and Parquet Boxing are also offered. Plotter applications have special functions available:

  • response of various tools, e.g. marking pen, oscillating knife, puncher and fixed knife
  • automatic tool change
  • Supernatant, overcut
  • Sort order by tool
  • Speeds for each knife according to material and thickness
  • Automatic or manual adjustment of the tools according to contour
