Suntek TruCut Software
SunTek’s TruCut software is designed to match with plotters and streamline the PPF installation process. According to the company, it installs quickly, features design tools and has a growing library of vehicle patterns. At the SEMA Show last fall, SunTek representative Hilary Thomas said more resources have been directed toward perfecting the software.
Solar Gard ComputerCut
Solar Gard says its ComputerCut film-cutting software and plotter system is the world’s only Internet-based pattern cutting system that accesses thousands of automotive PPF and window film paint patterns, decals, graphics and glass art images, according to the company. Representatives say the patterns are so precise that there is no need for additional hand-cutting of the film to fit the vehicle.
Graphtec’s FC8600 series cutting plotter is a staple in some PPF shops. It has a maximum cutting speed of 58.5 inches per second and 20 to 600 grams of selectable cutting forces.
In addition to PPF, it can cut sandblast-resistant rubber, automotive window films, self-adhesive vinyl and other media types, according to the company. It cuts up to 63 inches.
