Vinyl Cutter

Graphtec CE6000
Use our Graphtec CE6000 vinyl cutter to create and design stickers and decals. Running an event or jumping into a startup? Vinyl cutter adhesives are a great way to show off a logo or create eye-catching decorations and signage.

CNC Milling

Carvey
The Carvey is a desktop CNC Mill that simplifies 3D carving. Milling begins with a solid block of material (such as wood or plastic), and uses cylindrical milling bits to carve material away.
