Label Settings in Cut Rite (Homag)
Cut Rite setup to receive from Promob
IMPORTANT: The files available for download in this article are for example only, the label setup must be done by a specialized Cut Rite technician.
1. The *.csv file generated inside the Promob must be placed on the machine that contains the Cut Rite;
- The *.csv file is optimized and sent to the machine via pen-drive or network;
2. The images must be generated in the c:\bmp\ folder, on the saw machine's computer;
These images are generated in the indicated path, in a subfolder created by the design, and their name is composed with the Customer Data and Space. If the folder is not network-mapped, it is necessary to copy all the files from the c:\bmp\ folder and transfer them to the disconnector.
In the example, the assembly of the path with the words Jose and Maria left the name of the folder created by the user.
The path c:\bmp\ left the tag path change set to be fixed.
