Roland CAMM-1 CM-400 - Has anyone heard of this? Impressions Needed

Recommended Posts

I have the opportunity to purchase a Camm1 CM-400 in 40" for around $1000.00 and am wondering if anyone knows anything about it? I am going to purchase either this, or a used panther (Zencut Green I believe) for $800.00

I cant find anything on the internet for the life of me.

This is all that I have found;

Any impressions would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Roland CAMM-1 Cm-400 40" Cutter for sale. This is a great Professional Grade workhorse machine. I have the exact same one, i use on a daily basis. It fired up and cut out the logo shown in the photos! It Could use a new blade, but other than that, its ready to go! The Stand has no wheels, one of the old ones broke, and i removed them

Asking $1500 OBO - will Deliver

Roland makes a good machine > I bought out a sign shop last week and it had an old color camm Roland .....Machine hasnt been running in 6 years  . I cleaned it and it cuts 100%.  But not good as a printer   because Ink Cartridges are expensive  and the machine uses a heat head to transfer the ink to vinyl......they are known to burn out easy and get damaged too...and at 1000   a shot..... michine wasnt worth the trouble.But will make a good back up cutter

Hello All

Does anyone know when the Roland CM-400 was produced. It seems to be pretty aged as it shows drivers for Win95-98-NT

I have the chance to buy one for $950 that claims to be in GREAT shape and I was just wondering if it's worth a 3 hr. drive to look at it.

Thanks

here is the manual for it - http://support.rolanddga.com/docs/documents/departments/technical services/manuals and guides/cm300_400_500_use_e_r5.pdf

seeing that above thread shows they was selling for about the price as the one you are looking at 7 years ago - thinking that is a bit high.

The basic underlying technology on these cutters was developed by Hewlett Packard in the late 1950's.

The way these things work has not changed since.

I would offer the guy $500 for his antique machine and cart it outta there. Make sure he shows it operating first.

I made an offer on this CM-400 and it was accepted. My worry is how difficult it's going to be to convert my Graphtec layouts to a Roland layout without having to redesign them all..

Anyone have any advise on this? 

TIA
