Hello, I'm looking for a cutter.
I was told that GCC plotters / cutters use japan made step
and servo motors. Also that carriage is made in japan too. So the distributor said that is true or not.?
I thought that GCC are made in china.
The post would have been more clear, cause maybe you like China parts better than Japanese parts. It doesn't matter the reputation the countries carries everyone has their own preference. So living under a rock isn't quite the right comment for this post cause you didn't make yourself clear.If the parts are made in japan, Germany they are higher quality then if they would be made in china.
A supplier can order what ever "grade" of parts they want.....China has come along way in their manufacturing capabilities.....China can make parts on par with anyone...Just as Japan or Germany can make "cheap" parts if that is what is required...I do not understand your question.
If the parts are made in japan, germany they are higher quality then if they would be made in china. If you don't know this then were have you been living? under a rock?
I care, if GCC would sell their cutters at the price PCUT does then I wouldn'tWho cares,,, GCC is a great cutter at a reasonable price with a great warranty backed by a manufacturer that has offices world wide and not just exporting from China like others do.
Really?? Calipered carriage screws,, Really??
I have no doubt GCC cutters do work:My GCC cutters have worked flawlessly since I bought them...I have had no problem with tracking....My longest run to date was 8 feet....I started with a 390.00 GCC Expert 24 and then moved up to a Cut-3000 (GCC Bengal)....I am pretty sure my next move will be a 40" GCC Jaguar IV....I think it will serve me well at a couple thousand less than a Graphtec FC8000-42"....
If I would work for roland, then I would not ask why the force is only 250 max would I?You are starting to sound like you work for Roland....
AFAIK Roland is made in Taiwan.Where does it say Roland is actually made in Japan with no Chinese parts? I scoured the Roland site and can not find that information...
Mechanically Roland is best, but as you know every device has is pros and cons, so I'm still trying to pick my cutter for the accurate type work on vinyl and on paper for stencils.And to close, if you think Roland is "God"s Gift" to the plotter world, go buy a Roland and quit bothering us...No one is forcing you to buy anything you do not want.....
What problems was your Zing having that caused you to take it apart and check the bearings?I actually found 3 bad bearings on new KNK Zing cutter ! They were all no name bearings.
Sounds like you are tearing apart cutters to see whats inside of them.I'm still trying to pick my cutter for the accurate type work on vinyl and on paper for stencils.
Well my research does not lead me to that conclusion, so I guess we will have to disagree....Mechanically Roland is best, but as you know every device has is pros and cons, so I'm still trying to pick my cutter for the accurate type work on vinyl and on paper for stencils.
