Roland DGA has introduced its most advanced desktop cutter. The new Camm-1 GS-24 offers “increased cutting power, precision, several high-performance features, and unsurpassed reliability with an industry-best 3-year trouble-free warranty.” The GS-24’s build quality, redesigned cutting carriage and blade holder, 10x overlap cutting capability, and 350g of downforce (a 40% increase from its predecessor) allow users to cut a variety of materials from 2” to 27.5” wide – including thick, dense substrates – with ease and accuracy.

Equipped with a digital servomotor, it’s capable of cutting vinyl, paint mask, twill, heat transfers – even magnetic materials and card stock – at speeds of up to 20” per second. The GS-24 is ideal for creating high quality vehicle graphics, signs and decals, decorated apparel, specialty graphics and more. Perforated cutting capabilities also facilitate the production of labels and decals for individual sale.

A newly-designed LCD panel allows convenient monitoring and control, while a precise blade groove on the cutter’s apron ensures easy manual cutting. There’s also an included roller base that keeps feeds straight for precise cuts. Its bundled Roland CutStudio software lets users enlarge, reduce, reposition, rotate and mirror images quickly and easily. An improved tiling function makes for easy cutting of oversized images – including TrueType fonts – without the need for outlining. CutStudio supports BMP, JPG, STX, AL and EPS file formats, as well as the ability to cut directly from Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW.
