  4. Tangential Head

    • ease resulting in greater efficiency
  5. Tracking
    • Refers to continuous feed length of material through machine,
    • often quoted by competitors as a feature with many of them guaranteeing 50
    • ft. Imagine 30” wide material feeding
    • through the machine that is held in with pressure rollers, the longer it
    • travels the more it moves and eventually it is completely out of alignment and
    • in some cases the rollers may move off the material. The true measurement of accuracy is
    • repeatability and it’s an educational process on the phone to make sure
    • customers are aware of the difference.
    • For example Graphtec guarantees 50 ft tracking but the repeatability is
    • only guaranteed for 80 inches
