    I make motocross graphics and I was looking at getting a roland GX24. I saw on the uscutter website it says that it can cut through laminate which is what I will need to do. I will need to be able to cut through atleast 18mil material. I was reading and it says that it only has 250 grams of downforce. Has anyone used this machine to cut through material as thick as 18 mil?
    Thank you

    You may want to look at a Graphtec FC or s Summa for heavy cutting. I would pass on the UScutter.

    You will probably need to run a 2-pass cut, which on this thick of media may get off alignment slightly.

    Are you currently printing to a material? The SP-300i will print and cut, but will still require 2-pass cut more than likely.

    The Pro Series cutter would get you up to 350 grams of force and should cut it... using a 60 degree blade with overcut function.

    I wasnt really looking to get a whole new printer for this. We use an HP Latex printer and then we have to laminate and then use the registration marks to cut out the graphics.

    I just looked at the Graphtec FC series and it looks like a really good cutter. I also had someone tell us about the roland gx24 as well. I just was hoping to be able to get it all in 1 cut because like it was said I dont want it to be off the 2nd time.
