Modela Pro II MDX-540


Fast, accurate and affordable, the Roland Modela Pro II MDX-540 Subtractive Rapid Prototyping (SRP) device is a true leader in its field, exceeding all price vs performance measures against other forms of Rapid Prototyping including 3D printing.

This 4-axis desktop CNC device is a highly versatile machine that can create just about any prototype required from snap-fit and functional parts right through to light metal moulds and custom-designed jewellery.

Recognising that prototypes need to perform like the real thing, Roland’s MDX-540 can produce manufactured products that survive physical, structural and thermal tests. It’s why it’s so popular in industries such as aerospace, automotive, interior design, manufacturing & industrial, jewellery, education, confectionary, engineering and defence, where functional prototypes can be put to test in the field.

The MDX-540 can mill the most intricate detail and produce prototypes from a huge range of non-proprietary materials and popular engineered plastics such as ABS, Delrin and nylon as well as medical grade materials such as PEEK. The MDX-540 can also mill non-ferrous prototypes and moulds made from brass, copper and aluminium, enabling the creation of metal moulds for rapid injection moulding or EDM electrodes for production tooling.

The Modela PRO II MDX-540 is driven by a 400W spindle and uses a standard 13 amp power supply. It features a fully interlocked safety guard and USB connectivity and is supplied with its own powerful CAM software enabling you to turn CAD generated or scanned 3D files into finished parts in minutes.
