Roland DG company launches laser decorator
Roland DG subsidiary DG Shape has released its latest LD-300 Laser Decorator, which it says goes beyond foil decoration on soft plastics to include larger three-dimensional items and direct imprinting on natural leather.
According to Hiroshi Oe, global product manager for 3D Products at DG Shape, "The LD-300 is the next generation of laser decorator technology. It is larger and more robust than the recently released LD-80 laser decorator, increasing the capability of foil decoration onto larger items."
The company says the design of the LD-300 allows personalisation of small or large objects without sacrificing quality. The working area of the LD-300 is approximately 305mm x 230mm and can accommodate objects up to 50mm thick. The bed can be removed to accommodate larger items up to 200mm thick, such as handbags and product packaging. The LD-300 can produce graphics and crisp text using the bundled Metaza Studio software.
Oe continues, "The LD-300 is a Class 1 laser product. The shielded front cover and completely enclosed frame are perfect for 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 for complete control of the decoration workflow."
The LD-300 is now available in Australia.
