Bend .032"-.080" thick returns quickly and accurately and fl ange aluminum coil from 1.5"-8.5" in height. DOING IT THE HARD WAY? 303.798.7110, ext. 203 Now bend channel letters in .080" aluminum automatically! lamps currently exist that can be tied to any Wi-Fi network. Level of control var- ies from dimming, to changing the color temperature of the white LED, to the actual spatial beam pattern.

Once a sign is net- worked, it can do very "smart" things like turning on when there is a thunderstorm during the day or dimming at 3 a.m. to reduce energy costs. At a minimum, given the current state of white LED develop- ment, we can expect prices to stay low and performance of the LEDs to remain very high.
