S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • October 2014 • 111 Product Review LED DRIVER SFEG, Fairview, Tennessee, introduces the France LED-1260EPS. This driver is UL Listed which means it is tested by UL and found complete to be used by the purchaser as is; thus allowing for more versatility in the field. UL conducts continued inspections on UL Listed products to ensure their safety standards. The France LED-1260EPS is the first LED driver with a UL Type TL rating. This rating was created by UL to standardize driver considerations and allows the France LED-1260EPS to be used in new or existing LED luminaire products.

The ARM-10 3D printer is ideal for validating a design in the initial stages of prototyping or modeling a complex shape. Incorporating a Digital Light Processing (DLP) layered projection system, this rapid prototyping 3D printer builds models by sequentially curing layers of resin from a resin tray. Simultaneous production of multiple objects can be accomplished within the same work area to reduce modeling time. The suspended build system also minimizes resin usage. Roland's imageCure resin becomes semi-transparent when cured, and post- processing procedures like support removal and polishing are simple to do. The included monoFab Player AM software supports 3D printing from STL files and features automatic functions such as healing that fills in any gaps in 3D data, simplifies meshes and generates supports.

HYBRID LASER Universal Laser Systems, Scottsdale, Arizona, announces the release of the XLS10MWH Multiwave Hybrid laser material processing platform as the newest member of the XLS product family. The XLS10MWH platform combines the laser energy from CO 2 lasers of 9.3 or 10.6 microns and a fiber laser of 1.06 microns into the simultaneous delivery of a single beam-an industry first. By allowing laser configurations of multiple wavelengths, this innovative technology opens up new possibilities for laser material processing. The XLS10MWH offers the greatest range of material and laser process capabilities, including cutting, marking and engraving both organic and inorganic materials. The control of lasers individually or simultaneously provides infinite laser energy combinations for the development of new laser material processes, offering advantages in advanced material processing of aerospace, automotive, electronic and other engineered materials, including reinforced polymers, composites, nanocomposites and even hybrid materials.

Most notable is its latest addition, MultiTac High Tack, a versatile double-sided mounting adhesive for a variety of mounting applications. MultiTac High Tack is a permanent, high tack acrylic adhesive available in clear or white. Due to its aggressive bond, MultiTac High Tack is an optimal choice for mounting to difficult or irregular substrates such as Gatorboard or Dibond. The white version also aids in mounting to darker substrates because of its excellent opacity. This product is manufactured in Drytac's new adhesive coating facility in Toronto, Canada and is distributed worldwide. For information, visit www.drytac.com/multitactm.html. FOAMBOARD The Gilman Brothers Company, Gilman, Connecticut, and Larson-Juhl, A Berkshire Hathaway Company, introduces low-temperature, permanent adhesive, heat activated MountCor family of foamboards. This patent pending technology has resulted in a universal board compatible for all mount presses and roll laminators. This eliminates historical variables such as temperature and speed, allowing those elements to be removed from the mounting equation. Larson-Juhl has seen the value in the new product and signed with The Gilman Brothers Company to market the new foamboard line to the framing industry. For information, visit www.gilmanbrothers.com.
