Product Description
What is an MDX-50E?
The MDX-50 has been built with features to meet the demands and tight-deadlines of professional design studios, but like all Roland equipment this model is simple and intuitive to use and will be equally at home in the school or university workshop. For a compact bench-top machine the working area is simply massive – larger machines fall into the category of production prototyping or large-format routing. With its brushless DC spindle motor and advanced drive mechanics, the MDX-50 mills incredibly smooth and accurate prototypes in a massive range of materials, at eye-wateringly high speeds. The built in control panel allows setup operations and on-the-fly adjustments to be made at the machine, while the computer based virtual control panel has sophisticated features such as tool life management and machine code editing. An optional dust extraction kit keeps the work area tidy, while any heavy waste falls into a built-in debris collection drawer. This versatile machine is ideal for modelling complex 3D shapes, cutting acrylic profiles, or engraving PCBs with astoundingly high levels of precision.

Intuitive Software
Once again, TechSoft have collaborated with Roland to ensure seamless integration with 2D Design V2 to make the most of this advanced machine in a familiar software environment. For 3D work, SRP Player software from Roland is included in the package. This wizard based software simplifies the process of setting up complex tool paths, guiding the user by straightforward step-by-step setup routines. Built in animated virtual machining allowing students to preview the finish and estimate machining duration before the machine is put into action.

Why Choose the MDX-50?
You can’t buy time, but the automated start-to-finish machining capability will certainly save you some. If you need extra capacity and a versatile compact desktop machine, this is the model for you.

Automatic Tool Changer
The built in 5 position Automatic Tool Changer really does make life simple. Tool holders which are available for shank diameters up to 6mm are loaded into the stocker, and the machine then takes over and calibrates each one automatically. The Z0 position is set with a sensor whenever a new material is loaded, and the machine does the rest. Tools are selected by simply specifying their number in 2D Design or SRP Player software.

Ideal for Education
Roland Modela MDX-50E
The MDX-50E increases performance with an expanded machining area of 400(X)x305(Y)x135(Z)mm and increased operating speeds (thanks to a faster speed rate), while reducing production time with faster job processing and an automatic tool changer for continuous operation without stopping to change milling tools.
