Position of the Origin Point and the Registration Mark
The origin point after scanning the registration mark will be as shown below.
MARK TYPE 1
Offset amount away from the registration mark will be the origin point for cutting if the registration offset is set. (See "Setting Offset
Between the Registration Mark and Cutting Origin Points"
For the registration mark pattern 2, when the mark is located in 15 mm from the roll of media, the origin point may be out of range.
The condition offset is generated is explained with creating the registration mark and the cutting data using an
application software on the computer as an example.
Print onto the sheet media using a printer, and set that sheet media on the cutting plotter. Send the cutting data
from the computer to cutting plotter.
Also, scan the registration mark on the sheet media with the cutting plotter, determine the origin point of the
The origin point of the plotter will be set as the registration mark origin point as shown above, and it is different
from the origin point of the cutting data. The difference between these two origin points are called as offset.
In case of the figure above, set x and y to the cutting plotter as a registration mark offset.
It can cut properly by setting the offset value to the cutting plotter.
There are following methods to measure the offset.
Cutting data is checked on the computer, and the distance between the origin point of the cutting data and the
registration mark origin point is Measured.
