MDX-540 Milling Machine Features


Don't Be Limited by Materials

As a subtractive instead of additive 3D machine, the MDX-540 Rapid Prototype Machine supports a variety of non-proprietary materials that include ABS, nylon, hardwood, plywood, FDA approved resins, non-ferrous metals and much more. The following items are just some of the prototypes and applications that are possible with this versatile device:

Snap-fit parts
Molds for casting
Toys and games
Product prototypes
Jewelry and accessories
Furnishings and decorations
Electrical parts and casings
Relief signs and graphics

Make Prototypes with Fit and Function

The MDX-540 Rapid Prototype Machine can be used to produce functional prototypes and proof of concept testing for industrial and commercial release, such as thermal and structural trials. Used extensively by engineers, the MDX-540 is ideal for creating aluminum, brass and copper molds for rapid injection molding and EDM electrodes for production tooling. Plus, MDX-540 parts meet a host of FDA and other government regulations.
SRP Player CAM software

SRP Player CAM Software

Designed for use by design professionals as well as students and novices SRP Player allows MDX users to simply open a 3D file, click through the step-by-step interface, then hit the “print” button to send designs to the MDX-540. SRP Player automates the prototyping process and generates tool paths with high speed and precision, also offering 3D scaling, support for 4-axis milling and simulation of finished 3D parts.

Mill Fast and Smooth for Minimal Finishing

MDX-540 devices use high-speed, high-precision 400W spindles that decrease vibration within the unit and produce accurate prototypes for complex fits. With ISO15448 standard collets, the MDX-540 mills smooth surfaces that requires little to no post finishing work.

Stay In-Control with a Hand-Held Controller and Virtual Control Panel

The Handy Panel hand-held controller can be extended from the MDX, allowing you to control the machine from a distance, while the Virtual Control Panel lets you control the MDX-540 directly from your PC. Both options simplify setup and operation by allowing you to change spindle speed and select other options from a convenient location.

Your Machine, Your Configuration

The MDX-540 gives you the freedom to configure your system exactly the way you want with additional safety covers and a range of collets to work with industry standard tooling. Additions include a time and error-saving Rotary Axis to allow users to rotate an object until all four sides have been milled, and an Automatic Tool Changer that changes up to four preset tools of different sizes with an air-activated, high-precision spindle.
