The cutting plotter is a tool for the exact cutting of any stencil or images from a number of materials that fit this sort of device. This can be a vinyl film, paper, a small thickness, or another material. This is popular in advertising and adornment business. It's very easy to handle and you can get incredible forms. With its benefits you may get products that we see everywhere: billboards, shop windows decoration, info signs, plaques and pictures on the clothing. With the help of such cutting devices you might create patterns for cutting materials and stencils. The objectives of application are limitless, which leads to a good demand for them.

It's really simple to utilize, and very inexpensive, and the programs which are built-in are also user friendly. You can choose to make a picture with specific software such as CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator, and you can apply ready-Clipart.

Almost all cutting plotters are operating on the same principle:

- Initially, you must pick a picture (ready or created yourself). The image is loaded into the program.
- Fill the material where the image will be cut in the cutting plotter. The material is pressed with a specific roller.
- Now you should decide the depth to which the knife will cut, to successfully penetrate the coating film and not to damage the substrate. This is performed by testing it.
- Now you can begin from your personal computer the cutting procedure.
- At the final of the process, the trimming of the film are taken away and the final graphic can be transferred to the mounting film.
- Now the work with the cutting plotter is complete and you can proceed to the next stage: the transfer of the image to the desired surface.
- Before you stick the film prepared with this machine, you should carefully prepare the ground. Even if the surface seems completely clean, it may have dirt and grease from your hands touch. The surface area should be prepared instantly prior to using the image, because even after a short period of time it may come to settle dust or condensation. Usually it is sufficient to wash the surface area with any detergent.
