Roland CAMM 1

Versatile and Popular Cutting Machine for Vinyl, Card, etc

Direct TechSoft Design Control
Roland Knife Cutters are the only knife cutting machines to be DIRECTLY CONTROLLED from TechSoft Design V3 (formerly 2D Design V2)
N.B. Pens can replace the cutter for simple illustrations. However all printing must be done on an independent printer before score and cut lines are made on the CAMM 1.


The ideal machine for most busy departments. Fast enough for large or complex vinyl work; cuts printed card up to A2 size using optical print alignment. Robust and well-proven in schools, the GS-24E comes with a renowned TechSoft Inset Pack.
Model: CAMM 1 GS-24E
Max plotting area: 584 x 25000mm
Max plotting speed: 500mm/sec
Print Alignment: Optical System
Interface: USB & Serial
Motor: Digital Servo
Dimensions: 860(W) x 319(D) x 235(H)mm
Weight: 13.5kg

CAMM 1 GR-420 / GR-540 / GR-640

CAMM 1 GR Range
The GR series of knife cutters are super-fast, high power knife cutters with advanced features for the most demanding commercial applications. There are three machines in the range, differing only in size. Each of the machines uses optical print alignment giving them the ability to align-and-cut printed media in large sizes. They are ideal for large-scale work, possibly in heavier material. They are designed for a totally professional level of sign, apparel, vehicle graphics and packaging production.

What is a Knife Cutter?
A good quality knife-cutter is the ideal entry point for developing CAD/CAM as an important strand in the Design and Technology curriculum. The machines are quiet and inherently safe to use which makes them the most child-friendly option for a huge variety of project outcomes in just about every area of the subject. This versatility and a low initial cost means that almost any department can get started with real CAD/CAM activity even if budgets do not stretch to milling or laser systems. But the machines are far more than entry level tools and they will never be made redundant by new or different technologies. Knife cutting is the only way to cut delicate ‘applied media’ in vinyl and only knife cutters can offer registration mark recognition and the fine control needed for print and cut work.

Why Choose a CAMM 1?
Roland CAMM 1 machines have set the standard for school knife cutters since their introduction over 19 years ago. The GS-24 is the latest guise of this benchmark machine and it features several significant improvements. Servo motors now give even faster and smoother cutting, while preserving pin-point accuracy. Roland’s Optical Print Alignment System (OPAS) is standard on all GS-24s - this allows students to exploit high quality colour printing from modern ink-jet or laser printers, and to align the printed graphics to a cutting path for bespoke stickers, labels, logos and packaging products. The GS-24E handles media from matchbox-size off-cuts, to 584mm widths up to 25m long, so it will accommodate any of the roll or sheet materials TechSoft supply with no trimming and no wastage. For print-and-cut work this means A4 and A3 printed sheets are no problem and, if you have access to a large format printer, you can even print and cut A2 size nets, stencils, etc. 2D Design V2 has been designed to work with OPAS. Once the design page has been set to match the GS-24, all the machine settings are automatically sent to the machine on output – no buttons to press. The maximum speed of 500mm/sec means that simple individual projects will cut in a few moments and large or ‘nested’ sets of class work will take minutes at the most.

Which CAMM 1 Do I Need?
Most schools and colleges will find that a GS-24E will give them everything they need in a knife cutter at an excellent price with no compromise to capacity or performance.

Training Pack

The Training Pack gives you everything you need to get the machine out of the box and earning its keep in the shortest time possible. We have distilled key information into a series of tutorials that will guide you through setting-up, and then a series of projects that illustrate the full potential of the machine. Each pack contains a project CD, a booklet to guide you and a selection of materials. Completing the Training Pack is not onerous; it will provide a sample set of project ideas - some of which are shown below - and the confidence to develop your own ideas.
