Super ChannelBender XP
www.channelbender.com/channelbenders/super-channelbender-xp
As material feeds through the Super ChannelBender XP, 1/8” rivet holes are hydraulically punched on each side of the seam overlap. These holes align perfectly, which makes final riveting a snap. No more drilling as holes of 1/8” or 1/4” can be punched in any location on the letter return or the flange to serve as pilot holes for screws, rivets or even drain holes for exterior mounted letters. In the past, these functions were all done manually and required a significant amount of time and labor. Lastly, the Super ChannelBender XP's highly advanced software and extremely tight tolerances allow the XP to form a slight relief bend at the letter seam which effectively conceals the seam from view, greatly improving visual aesthetics.

Super Splice
www.miratecsystems.com
The Miratec Systems Super Splice is an exclusive product achievement that eliminates an age old problem! When installing printed graphics that utilize vinyl and exceed 60″, a splice line has always been visible. Today, when two pieces of vinyl are joined together to complete a graphic, they must be overlapped 3/8” to ensure stability and prevent light leaks. When backlit, this overlap creates a very noticeable line in the graphic at the exact location of this splice. Everyone in the industry has noticed this line, and until now, has accepted it. The consensus is that the “seam line,” as it’s commonly referred to, is undesirable but also unavoidable.At Miratec Systems, our Pure Color Technology has helped us perfect an innovative and invisible way to join two pieces of clear vinyl. The Miratec Systems Super Splice gives the stability needed to prevent light leaks, and, most excitingly, causes the splice line to disappear when backlit! It will perform as though there is no splice whatsoever!The Super Splice will eliminate not only an unsightly splice line but also the need to figure out a custom splice placement that can often add cost to a project. The appearance of a seam-free graphic can set the work of a company apart from the competition and be a huge advantage when bidding on projects. The Super Splice, along with Pure Color Technology, is necessary to create the very best vinyl prints available!
