Introducing The MDX-540 Benchtop Milling Machine. King Of The Subtractive Prototyping Process.
Any way you look at it – the MDX-540 Subtractive Rapid Prototyping (SRP) System is an excellent choice for replacing an outdated milling machine, or starting up a new prototyping business. One of the fastest and most accurate milling machines in the world, the MDX-540 has a price that is less than half the cost of most additive systems, and due to it’s process, it produces product molds and prototypes in half the time of an additive prototyping system. The MDX-540 is a CNC Milling Machine, including CAM software that quickly and easily produces everything from functional snap-fit parts, to light metal molds and jewelry.
Roland SRP MDX-540 Benchtop Milling Machine is built with production speeds and turn around time in mind. Able to create prototype parts from large material blocks in an average time of just over four hours. According to Todd Grimm’s independent and extensive study of RP systems, additive prototyping systems tend to produce prototypes that require additional post-production finishing processes, like smoothing, rounding and sharpening in order to achieve the final look and feel of the milled prototype. SRP Milling systems rapidly remove prototype material to produce product prototypes smooth to the touch, accurately carved and precisely proportioned – right off the machine.
The MDX-540 Benchtop Milling Machine can mill many different types of non-proprietary materials and engineered plastics. Compared to any additive RP systems, this benchtop milling machine is capable of producing fully functional prototypes that are better for structural, thermal, and electrical testing. The parts milled by the MDX-540 actually work, and they work well. Typically meet a host of FDA and other government regulations.
