Introducing a major advancement in rapid prototyping
Create precision models and prototypes quickly and easily in your office environment using Roland SRP Technology
- Precision benchtop milling machine produces high-quality parts and models using Roland’s Subtractive Rapid Prototyping (SRP) technology
- Advanced S models utilizing higher accuracy ballscrews available for even greater precision
- Simple on-screen menus and operation panel make setup and production easier than ever
- Cutting area of 500 mm (X) x 400 mm (Y) x 155 mm (Z) (19.6 (X) x 15.7 (Y) x 6.1 (Z) in.) accommodates larger prototypes
- Advanced software optimizes your 3D CAD data for flawless molds and parts
- In-house milling shortens the design/development cycle and lowers product development costs
Unmatched quality and performance
The new MDX-540 features numerous upgrades including a more rugged body design, faster arithmetic processing, improved smoothing functions, a streamlined worktable and more. Nearly every part and feature have been upgraded for superior all-around performance. Curved and rounded surfaces are smoother than ever for flawless finishes every time. The MDX-540 features a combination of Digital AC Servo motors and Feed Forward Processing (DAC-FFP) commonly used in larger, more expensive NC machines. This advanced technology ensures optimum torque and speed throughout the production process for powerful, high-speed milling.
*Milling quality may vary depending on software resolution, materials used and other criteria.
User friendly operation
Designed from the ground up for ease of use, the MDX-540 features a handy control panel that simplifies the setup and production processes by strategically grouping the most commonly used settings. Using a jog-dial, you can quickly and easily reposition tools and adjust spindle speeds without interrupting the milling process. For other settings, simply access the MDX-540’s on-screen operation panel featuring clear, easy-to-navigate icons.
Powerful options for high production demands
Four powerful options let you build on your MDX-540 for even greater performance and unattended operation. These include an Automatic Tool Changer (ATC), rotary axis unit, T-slot table and safety cover. The optional ATC holds up to four tools while the rotary axis unit facilitates 360 degree and multiple-surface cuts.
Able to mill a wide variety of materials
With the MDX-540, you can produce molds and parts for small lot production quickly and inexpensively from a wide range of materials, including chemical woods, resin, ABS and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, brass and copper.*
* The MDX-540 cannot mill light metals with the rotary axis unit.
S models for precision application
S models offer high quality milling for snap-fit prototypes, smooth surface finishes and other advanced applications. S models feature precision ballscrews that achieve repeat accuracy up to ±0.02 mm (±0.0008 in.) and minimize cutting marks.
Advanced, easy to use software
The introduction of Roland’s MODELA PRO II and SRP Player software allow even novices to operate the MDX-540 for professional results. Every MDX-540 comes equipped with Roland SRP Player, which was developed exclusively for the MDX-540. Simply enter the required information into five setting groups and SRP Player does the rest, automatically determining the best tools and other details required to generate the optimum tool path. To prevent costly and time-consuming errors, SRP Player allows you to preview your job on-screen to confirm the cutting path for quality results every time.
