Irvine, Calif. – Roland DGA Corporation has announced that its DGSHAPE LD-80 Laser Decorator was recognized as a Gold Award winner in the 2018 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards. Held annually, the Laser Focus World Innovators Awards are presented to organizations that demonstrate excellence in the use of a product, system, or application. Submissions are judged by a panel of senior industry experts on originality; innovation; their impact on designers, system engineers, or users; and whether they fulfilled a new market need, leveraged a novel technology, and/or increased productivity.
Introduced earlier this year, the DGSHAPE LD-80 Laser Decorator makes it easy to personalize and enhance small, off-the-shelf acrylic, ABS and polycarbonate items with metallized and holographic foils. It enables users to incorporate stunning designs – even small text and fine details – quickly, easily and with incredible precision. The LD-80’s small footprint, variable data capabilities, and ability to foil-decorate without a hot-foil stamp, make it unbeatable for on-demand foil decoration in retail stores, at kiosks, or at concerts and other special events.
“We’re extremely proud to have our LD-80 receive a Laser Focus World Innovator Gold Award,” said Andrew Oransky, president Roland DGA. “In addition to being a compact, cost-effective machine with unique foil decoration capabilities, it’s also compliant with the safest Class 1 International Standard for products equipped with laser devices.”
“This prestigious program allows Laser Focus World to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and services in the photonics and optoelectronics industry,” noted Alan Bernstein, publisher of Laser Focus World. “Our 2018 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact.”
