Create Precision Models and Prototypes Quickly and Easily In Your Office Environment Using Roland SRP Technology

The MDX-540 mills even the most intricate details.

Generate smooth curves and surfaces without handwork.

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.

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

Automatic Tool Changer (ATC) Rotary Axis Unit
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 Applications

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.
Compare round prototype accuracy created by MDX-540S and a conventional model
Comparison results were obtained by milling acrylic cylinders with 40mm radius and 30mm height using both an MDX-540S and a conventional mill.
