Professional Cutting Software

Simplify creating and editing cutting data with FineCut/Coat9

Plug-in cutting software to enhance the potential of cutting plotters

Creating professional graphics starts with the right software!

FineCut/Coat9 software is the latest generation plug-in for Mimaki cutting plotters to meet the highly demanding professional requirements of custom layouts and high-precision contour cutting. This software product has wide functionality, allows you to maximise the innovative potential of Mimaki cutting equipment and supports all current cutting functions.

Supporting both Adobe® Illustrator® and CorelDraw® on Windows and Macintosh platforms, it is a crucial and user-friendly work tool for every sign maker.

What makes FineCut/Coat9 cutting software so great?

  • Supports third-party job output ...
    for laser engravers.
    The output of cutting jobs to third-party laser engravers is now supported.

    Users of Mimaki cutting equipment can use the FineCut9 plugin to work on laser engravers in the same way they are using the Mimaki plotters.
  • ID-Cut*...
    for optimised print/cut processes.
    Automatic cutting is made possible by the printed barcode and the recognition of that identification information by the cutter.

    This feature automatically determines the correct orientation of the loaded media, reducing wastage of media, ink and time due to communication errors and incorrectly loaded media.

    *Applicable models: CJV300 Plus, UCJV300/150, CG-FXII Plus, CF22-1225, and CFL-605RT.
  • Frame and Outline Extraction...
    for automatic frame creation.
    Frame extraction allows automatic frame creation (cutting line) according to the characteristics of the object.

    In the case of elements that have a closed shape (for example, in some letters), work efficiency is increased since the frame can be created simultaneously both inside and outside the graphic areas.

    Outline extraction makes an easy and quick outline directly on bitmap files such as BMP, JPEG and TIFF.
  • Independent registration...
    of each material parameter.
    When cutting hard or thick materials, it sometimes happens that they are not cut at once.

    A predefined setting for different types of materials will simplify and speed up the cutting process in the most optimal way.

    Additional settings such as the number of cutting times, speed, tool pressure, and other parameters for a single cutting line are features of FineCut9 that optimises the cutting of each material.
