Roland’s DGSHAPE announces release of next generation laser decorator

DGSHAPE Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Roland DG Corporation and leading provider of digital fabrication tools, announced the release of the LD-300 laser decorator.

“The LD-300 is the next generation of DGSHAPE’s laser decorator technology,” said Hiroshi Oe, Global Product Manager for 3D Products at DGSHAPE. “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.

 “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,” added Hiroshi Oe.  

The LD-300 will be released in Australia (early November); USA (End November); Japan (early December) and Europe (Q1 of 2020). Wide release is expected in Q2 of 2020.
