R31 Vinyl Sign Cutter Features


Superior Build QualityBladeholder

Instead of injection-molded plastic parts and platens that other entry level cutters use, R Series vinyl cutters are built from quality metal parts. That's critical - not only for the life of the equipment - but for cutting accuracy.

When vinyl moves through a machine at high speed, the vinyl cutter's rigidity is absolutely essential. With the R Series, you'll get superior quality in equipment AND cutting.

Advanced Vinyl Cutter Control Panel
Control Panel

Great vinyl cutters have one thing in common: Intuitive controls. The R Series is no exception. Its large digital display is easy to read and has plain English descriptions instead of cryptic abbreviations. The on-plotter controls are easy to use and understand and are extensive.

With the R Series, getting at all its great features is a snap, which means you'll be more productive every time you cut.

Tension-Adjustable Pinchrollers
Tension-adjustable pinch rollers

To cut costs, some vinyl cutters use vacuum hold-downs instead of pinch rollers. But vacuum systems can actually diminish tracking accuracy by interfering with the way media should travel smoothly back and forth during cutting.

That's why the R31 Series vinyl cutter has three tension-adjustable pinch rollers. Reduce tension for thin materials or increase it for thick materials. It's easy and delivers superb tracking accuracy on a wide range of sign, vehicle graphic, and heat transfer films.

Smooth-Feeding Media Supply
Media Supply Rollers

The media supply rollers are just one of the ways you can see the quality difference between the R Series and other cutters offered on eBay. More importantly, they smoothly supply your media for tracking that is more accurate than other cutters, by far.

USB and Serial Connectivity

With its on-board USB port you won't need adapters or other workarounds to connect your Vinyl Express R Series vinyl cutter to current generation desktop and laptop PCs. USB connection is accomplished through serial conversion.
