DGSHAPE Announces Launch of LD-300 Next Generation Laser Decorator
DGSHAPE Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Roland DG Corporation and a leading provider of digital fabrication tools, including 3D milling machines, 3D printers and engraving machines, announced today the release of the LD-300 laser decorator.
According to Hiroshi Oe, Global Product Manager for 3D Products at DGSHAPE, “the LD-300 is the next generation of DGSHAPE’s laser decorator technology. It’s larger and more robust platform can produce all the previous applications of the revolutionary LD-80 laser decorator, while also adding the capability of foil decoration on large items. We are also very proud to announce that LD-300 can imprint directly on to natural leather!”
The LD-300 Laser Decorator goes beyond foil decoration on soft plastics to include larger three-dimensional items and direct imprinting on natural leather. The unique design of LD-300 allows unique personalisation of small or large objects without sacrificing quality. The working area of LD-300 is approximately 305mm x 230mm and can accommodate objects up to 50mm in thickness. The bed can be removed for even larger items up to 200mm, such as handbags and product packaging. The LD-300 can produce stunning graphics and crisp text using bundled METAZAStudio software.
Oe continues, “The LD-300 is a Class 1 laser product. The shielded front cover and completely enclosed frame are perfect for retail environments where safety is a primary concern. Unlike laser engraving technologies that tend to burn the surface of leather during processing, the LD-300 requires no ventilation and leaves no debris during the decorating process. Setup is simple and intuitive, with easy-to-use software features for complete control of the decoration workflow.”
LD-300 will be released in select markets: Japan and Australia in early December, US and Europe in Q1 2020. Wide release is expected in Q2 of 2020.
