With ever increasing pressures on costs, it is good to know that Roland have the tools available to enable the in-house production of many different types of jobs. From printed indoor or outdoor graphics to engraved tactile signage, Roland can supply the tools and the skills - so that costly outsourcing can be avoided - saving time and money whilst also giving increased control over designs. For example, Roland engraving and milling machines can be used in the development of military equipment to speed up the development and production of prototype designs. Demonstrations and training are all available on request.
Whether you need a cut vinyl sign, printed and contour-cut decal or window sign, Braille sign, engraved sign, or full-colour POS, Roland has the reliable, trouble-free equipment to help you achieve the effect you need inhouse.
Roland printers use durable, safe eco-solvent inks for long lasting indoor and outdoor graphics which contain no harmful chemicals and with no great skill set required to operate Roland machinery, the learning curve is small and quick, allowing you to immediately get the most out of your investment.
By starting with a solid object and removing unwanted material, Roland’s Subtractive Rapid Prototyping (SRP) solutions offer several advantages over 3D printers and other rapid prototyping systems:
Lower cost of ownership – with no annual maintenance fees and low cost materials, Roland MDX users save thousands of pounds over the annual cost of other RP systems.
- Wide range of materials – woods, brass, aluminium, ABS, Acetal, Nylon, and plastics
- Smooth surface finish
- Tight tolerances
MDX-40A and MDX-540 series milling machines cost significantly less than 3D printers while producing precision prototypes out of a wider variety of non-proprietary materials. A larger selection of materials makes it easier to create prototypes, including UV resistance, bending strength, surface hardness and electrical conductivity. This is particularly important for biomedical and food processing products, where biocompatibility and chemically inert properties are critical. Roland SRP solutions come with SRP Player, powerful, easy to use CAM software that delivers the speed, tight tolerances and exceptionally smooth surface finishes required for prototyping and customised rapid manufacturing applications.
