DGShape, a wholly owned subsidiary of Roland DG Corporation, has announced the launch of its latest decorating solution, the DE-3 desktop engraver.
The DGShape DE-3 is the culmination of over three decades of Roland engraving expertise in delivering high quality, affordable and intuitive digital technologies to creative industries, manufacturers, retailers and education establishments worldwide. Hisashi Bito, president of DGShape, said: ‘The DE-3 builds on the legacy of Roland engraving solutions that is advanced today by DGShape Corporation and affirms our commitment to providing reliable, desktop solutions for the entrepreneur to build a business.’
Compact yet powerful, the DE-3 offers simple set up and operation to precisely engrave a huge range of delicate and durable materials such as metals, engraving laminates and plastics, wood items and more. Ideal for use within workshop, office, classroom, and retail environments, the DE-3 delivers an impressive variety of engraving applications including industrial nameplates and labels, durable and tactile signage, awards and gift personalisation.
In today’s multi-billion Euro global market for personalised goods, modern consumers demand and expect unique products, customised on-demand for them. The DE-3 enables businesses to capitalise on this trend as an intuitive and intelligent engraving solution.
Safe and robust for retailers to use in-store and portable and quiet enough for home based businesses to offer online gifts and awards.
For industrial labelling and product marking applications, the DE-3’s variable data engraving technology makes it simple to personalise nameplates, tools and other industrial applications.
The new DE-3 is an evolution of the highly acclaimed EGX-350 and features a range of intelligent enhancements to make operation easier than ever before, including the introduction of a laser pointer, which helps set up the origin point and previews the engraving area. ‘A cornerstone of all DGShape machines, ‘ Hisashi said, ‘is their ease of use. Operation is as simple as pressing a button. DGShape prides itself on the concept of the “Open System.” This open architecture offers the flexibility of using design software and tooling that engraving professionals are already familiar with.’
For increased production flexibility in any environment, with Ethernet connectivity the DE-3 can be connected via USB or LAN. Other key enhancements include updated nose cone technology for higher quality engraving on uneven material, data buffer for offline engraving, and new bundled software: Dr Engrave Plus. With advanced features such as AI and EPS file support, levelling and drilling functions, and variable data engraving, Dr Engrave Plus is a design software that can create new artwork or take existing files from popular design software packages to output to the DE-3 for a true out of the box solution.
