Ethernet connection enables multiple Puma IV to be operated by one PC and multiple PCs to share a single unit. Triple port connectivity provides users a great flexibility for data transmission.
Section cutting divides the long plot data into sectional output jobs to gain higher cutting quality and increase precision. GCC Puma IV series scan registration mark of section 1 and cut the plot data in section 1, and then it scan registration mark of section 2 and cut the plot data in section 2, and so on.
