S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • November 2019 • 59 N O V E M B E R 2 0 1 9 Product Review Linerless Film Gfp, Maryland Heights, Missouri, introduces a polyester version of its Linerless 2 mil Polypropylene (BOPP) overlaminate for short-term wide-format graphics to accommodate more demanding long-term graphics. Like Janus BOPP film, Janus Polyester (PET) is linerless, which makes it eco-friendly, quieter during production, twice the speed, half the cost and 40% of the shipping weight of traditional PSA films… but with 5-year durability for long-term applications like outdoor signage, vinyl lettering and stickers. Janus Polyester (PET) is also a great solution for shops that want to reduce film inventory. It will give them the flexibility to produce both short- and long-term signs and point-of-purchase with one durable 5-year film at significant cost savings. Both Janus films are available in gloss or matte finish. For information, visit www.gfpartnersllc.com. Engraving Software CADlink Technology Corporation, Ottawa, Ontario, introduces EngraveLab Version 10, the latest release of its widely used laser and spindle-based engraving software.

EngraveLab supports virtually all widely used engravers and is also bundled alongside some of the industry's leading engraving devices. The latest version of the software includes a host of new features for both laser (including support of Leetro as well as Ruida controller-based devices) as well as spindle engravers. Leading the way are the new 3D previewer with simplified conversion tools of 2D images into 3D output as well as an .STL import filter; automated photo conversion to finely detailed laser output on a large variety of materials, advanced Braille production tools that include all of the latest text to Braille conversion libraries and much more.
