72″ ROTARY SUBLIMATOR
Practix Mfg. LLC, Acworth, Ga., introduces its OK-405R grand-format, ad- vanced rotary sublimation machine, enabling owners of machines that are struggling to keep up with the increasing speed of newly available industrial printers for the market. Our machine is able to print 10 ft/min. This advanced sublimation machine was designed to accommodate the need for faster transfer speeds. The workable widths are from 24″ to 200″. The OK-405 was designed with a pivot system for automatic belt tracking, which ensures no lateral movement and “ghosting” on any of your fabric. The OK-405 encom- passes even heat to ensure color intensity across even wide fabrics utilizing three digitally controlled, independent heating zones across the entire heating drum.

Delcam, Birmingham, U.K., introduces the latest release of Delcam’s ArtCAM Pro CADCAM software for artistic applications in sign making, now much
easier to create complex designs with a new approach called interactive distortion modelling. This allows users to distort either vectors or reliefs within ArtCAM models by bending or stretching the design. Unlike most other CADCAM systems, ArtCAM Pro
is aimed at skilled artisans rather than engineers and requires little knowledge of engineering or computing. It has been particularly successful in the sign- making, woodworking and engraving industries. In these areas and in other artistic applications, ArtCAM Pro allows users to increase productivity, improve quality and deliver new designs more quickly, by combining their craft skills and creativity with the power and precision of computer-aided manufactur- ing. The addition of interactive distortion modeling in the latest release makes ArtCAM’s unique free-relief modeling even more powerful. Interactive distor- tion modeling makes it possible to create the most complex shapes quickly and easily, with the ability to see the effects of any changes as they are being made.

POLYESTER FILM SEAL,
Elkridge, Md., introduces two print products. UltraClear PET is an opti- cally-clear polyester film with a unique removable adhesive for the ultimate in window graphics, and CityLight Superior is a translucent polyester backlit film coated for backlit and lightbox applications. At 4.9 mil thick, UltraClear PET
is more than twice as thick as competing films. This extra thickness creates
more rigidity making instal- lation hassle free—all while still maintaining a competitive price point. Both the film and adhesive are also optically clear, allowing viewers to see through un- printed areas as if they weren’t even there. When printed with white inks, UltraClear PET can create memorable graphics effects, such as double- sided prints, simulated window perf,
and much more. Even without white inks you can attain bright, vibrant colors and high-ink densities to achieve almost any look desired. It’s ideal for use
in architectural design, retail/P.O.P. signage and custom décor. UltraClear PET utilizes a special silicone adhesive which allows graphics to be easily removed or repositioned without leaving a residue. It won’t buckle under the heat from latex printers or UV curing lamps and can be printed on any latex, solvent, eco-solvent, or UV curable printer. For information, visit www.sealgraphics. com/media.
