    I am looking to print directly to 4 x 8 sheets of corrugated plastic. I need some help with what printer I should choose for this application. I also need a diecutter to be able to cut out the images that I print on the corrugated plastic. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated

    There are several flatbed printers on the market but I'm not aware of any that can cut correlated plastic.
    Are you wanting to cut a rectangle or contour cut a shape?
    A cnc router should be able to do the job.

    We cut 4mm corrugated plastic with our Kongsberg iXL24 cutter, both contour-cut and rectangular. It makes nice, clean cuts; and has very little deflection when cutting across the flute walls even when the cut is nearly parallel to the flute. The cuts are way nicer than from our CNC, which we were using until our recent purchase of the cutter.

    How much money do you have to invest? That's going to determine what you will be able to buy.
