Creating Precision Prototypes and 3D Models Has Never Been Easier

The Roland MODELA MDX-50 mills an impressive variety of materials to produce models, vacuum forming moulds, jigs, parts, prototypes and more with smooth surface detail.

The MDX-50 creates prototypes out of materials similar to the end product, allowing you to test structural and functional operations, and assembly with other parts. With a machining area of 400 (X) x 305 (Y) x 135 (Z) mm, the MDX-50 can produce large single objects or batch produce smaller multiple parts, making it ideal for a host of applications. A new Built-In-Panel allows you to adjust spindle and milling speed on the fly, while the on-screen “V-Panel” function aids production by monitoring tool life and notifying users via email when a job is completed or intervention is required.

Automated Production

Unattended operation for efficient workflow.

The MDX-50 features an ATC (Automatic Tool Changer) as standard, to allow unattended operation day and night. The auto-sensing function corrects the tool length to ensure milling accuracy for every job. The optional rotary axis rotates materials automatically from 0 to 360 degrees continuously or indexes for 2-sided, 4-sided and custom angles to enable the easy and efficient production of pieces with complex surfaces. Thanks to the ATC and rotary axis units, once milling begins users can leave the device to run unattended with confidence, enabling them to get on with other jobs.

Intuitive Software

User-friendly bundled CAM software delivers exceptional results.

Popular in Industry and Education, the intuitive “SRP Player” CAM software has been updated to match the advanced functions of the MDX-50. Milling settings can be configured in five simple steps, making operation straightforward even for those new to milling.

Easy Operation

Simple control from the MDX-50 Built-In Panel.

The integrated control panel on the MDX-50 makes setting up milling jobs a breeze. Adjust spindle and milling speed on the fly and receive instant updates on job status. The on-screen “V-Panel” function aids production by monitoring tool life and notifying users via email when a job is completed or intervention is required.
