Roland Launches DGSHAPE LD-300 Laser Decorator

IRVINE, CA, Jan 23, 2020 – Roland DGA has announced the launch of the new DGSHAPE LD-300 laser decorator – a larger, more robust version of the company’s LD-80, the world’s first laser decorator, which was introduced in March of 2018.

In addition to featuring all the impressive capabilities of its predecessor, the next-generation LD-300 boasts an expanded 12” x 9” workspace that allows for precision foil decoration on larger three-dimensional items, plus the ability to imprint directly onto natural leather.

“The new LD-300 enables users to go far beyond the foil decoration of smaller, soft plastic objects,” said Jay Roberts, Roland DGA product manager, UV Printers and Personalization. “With its unique design, larger workspace, and leather imprinting capabilities, the LD-300 offers greater versatility and productivity. You can enhance and add value to a wider range of products, including cosmetic items, custom gifts, wallets, purses, and much more.”

The LD-300’s workspace makes it easy to decorate objects up to 1.9” thick with a variety of metallic and holographic foils. For larger items, the bed can be easily removed, allowing the LD-300 to accommodate handbags, product packaging, and other objects up to 11.8” in size. Compared to traditional hot-foil stamping methods and laser engraving technology, the LD-300 is less complicated, cleaner and safer to use. It’s also simple to set up and operate. Users can customize a wide variety of items in just a few easy steps –just place the object in the machine, add your chosen foil, and laser imprint your design via the included METAZA Studio Software.

“Our new LD-300 is a Class 1 laser product, so users can rest assured that it’s safe and reliable,” noted Roberts. “With its shielded front cover and completely enclosed frame, this device is perfect for use in retail environments. And, 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 operation.”

One Stop Announces OSS PCIe 4.0 Value Expansion System

ESCONDIDO, CA, Jan 22, 2020 – One Stop Systems, Inc., the leading provider of specialized high-performance computing solutions for mission-critical edge applications, announced the availability of a new OSS PCIe 4.0 value expansion system incorporating the latest NVIDIA V100S Tensor Core GPU. As the newest member of the company’s AI on the Fly product portfolio, the system delivers data center capabilities to HPC and AI edge deployments in the field or for mobile applications.

The 4U value expansion system adds massive compute capability to any Gen 3 or Gen 4 server via two OSS PCIe x16 Gen 4 links. The links can support an unprecedented 512 Gpbs of aggregated bandwidth to the GPU complex.

The expansion system features 10 PCIe 4.0 slots and 4,000 watts of load sharing power. In conjunction with V100S Tensor Core GPUs, it delivers up to 1,040 teraFLOPS of tensor performance and 65.6 teraFLOPS of double precision performance, accelerating both computational science and data science.

The NVIDIA V100S Tensor Core GPU brings CUDA Cores and Tensor Cores in a unified architecture to enable mixed-precision computing. This feature is especially useful for AI training, where operations are run in FP16 precision, and results are accumulated in FP32 precision, which delivers significant speedups while preserving accuracy. In addition, NVIDIA V100S GPUs offer FP64 precision for scientific computing applications like simulations, and INT8 precision for AI inference. The OSS expansion system provides this GPU capability for military, automotive, aerospace and industrial edge applications.
