    Hey everyone!
    I am have an issue with one of my 3 FC8600-130's. The media I always use is a generic matte self adhesive 3mil. with a 3mil semi-gloss laminate. Typically the force I use for my PerfCutContour is between 30 and 32. For some reason out of nowhere, that force wasn't enough. Now I have had to bump the force to as high as it can go (48). I feel as thought there is a bigger issue with this machine because of that. I have tried new blades and different blade holders and nothing seems to help out with the force. It's not a blade depth issue as I am very familiar with how to dial them in. Do you have any suggestions? Please call me at the number in my signature so that we can troubleshoot this together.
