S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • June 2017 • 87 LED BILLBOARD BREAKTHROUGH Lightking Outdoor, Doral Florida, introduces its cutting-edge, patented new LED billboard product, the Air Series. The lightweight billboard is half the weight of standard LED billboards, has 25% lower wind-loads and allows air to flow through the product, making it self- cooling. The innovative design combines an aluminum exoskeleton and injection-molded louvered modules making it less necessary to reinforce billboard structures during retrofits, saving months of time and tens of thousands of dollars. The new technology also comes with a 10-year brightness guarantee, thanks to the Air Series 12,000 nit maximum brightness, continuous air cooling through vents and louvers and the LED billboard industry's biggest and brightest chips.

It can be fit to any Kongsberg C automated finishing system — no matter the size. Operators can control a number of machines concurrently or can be reassigned to other tasks. Media is always ready and waiting for the cutter, which eliminates delays loading and unloading the table. The system is also modular: companies can install the feeder first, and add the stacker at a later date. For more information, visit AUTOMATED FINISHING SYSTEM Colex Finishing, Elmwood Park, New Jersey, intro- duces the Sharpcut Conveyor, an auto- mated finishing system designed to speed up the process of cutting soft to rigid boards, vinyl, fabric, and textiles by utilizing the automatic board feeder or the roll feeder allowing for faster produc- tion runs. The system is designed to operate with minimal operator intervention when equipped with the optional automatic board feeder or the roll feeder. Other features include a triple interchangeable tool head station that selects the proper tool for the job and an energy efficient six-zone vacuum system with a vision registration system. The package includes a fixed knife, oscillating knife and a router. For more information, visit FIVE NEW TEXTURED OVERLAMS 3M Commercial Solutions, St. Paul, Minnesota, announces five new cast vinyl décor overlaminates for its Décor Overlaminate 8600 Series, that add texture as well as a protective finish to any interior graphic. Each is embossed with a unique texture, offering designers and graphic manufacturers stylish matte finishes in Classic Linen, Knit, White Fir, Riverbed and Plaster. Choosing to add texture will not compromise image quality since the design is printed on a base film — a flat surface for superior image quality — then layered with the embossed overlaminate. These five distinct patterns are also designed to protect underlying graphics and create a unique aesthetic and depth. For more information, visit WallWrap.
