    Setting of the Initial Down Force The initial down-force setting is effective when tangential mode is selected. Tangential control is generally used for the cutting of thick media. With thick film, additional time is required for the cutter blade to penetrate the media fully, even when the necessary cutting force is applied. The cutting operation starts before the cutter blade has fully penetrated the media, causing uncut sections to be left.

    Setting the Step Pass It may not cut the curved line smoothly if there is very short lines in the curve. It will cut in the units of the specified value when the STEP PASS is used, which allows to control the short lines with certain length, resulting to stable rotation of the blade for higher cut quality.

    Setting the Offset Angle The CE6000 analyzes the cutting data, and controls the angle of the cutter blade tip if the change in the angles of the corner is large. Angle control is applied if there is larger angle change than the angle specified as reference angle. The time to cut is shortened by setting large value for the reference angle, since it will only apply blade control when there are angles with large angle change, hence reducing the time to make the blade control.
