Preparation of Cutter Plunger

This chapter describes the structures and types of the putter plungers (cutter pens).
Cutter Plunger Nomenclature
The plotter cuts using a cutter blade mounted in a plunger. There are two different plungers to suit the diameter
of the cutter blade to be mounted (the φ0.9 mm cutter plunger is provided as a standard accessory). Be sure to
mount the cutter blade in the corresponding cutter plunger.

Adjusting the Blade Length
Blade length needs to be adjusted to perform optimal cut. Perform few test cuts and set the optimal blade length.
CAUTION
To avoid bodily injury, handle cutter blades with care.
It may result in damaging the cutter blade or the cutting mat if the blade is extended too much. Make sure the blade length is set
less than the thickness of the media.
Supplement
See "Running Cutting Tests"
See "Adjust the Blade Length Manually"
See "Adjust the Blade Length (Automatic Height Adjust)"
Adjust the blade length by turning the blade-length adjustment knob. Turn the knob in direction "A" to extend
the blade, or in direction "B" to retract the blade. When the knob is turned by one scale unit, the blade moves
approximately 0.1 mm. One full turn of the knob moves the blade approximately 0.5 mm.
