Friday, February 19, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Clevedon - Roland DG Corporation, a worldwide leader of engraving and 3D milling machines, is proud to announce the release of the desktop impact printer Metaza MPX-90. The MPX-90 strikes metallic surfaces with a precision diamond-tipped stylus, reproducing smooth photo gradations, logos and text inscriptions at high speed and pin-sharp accuracy.

"Using Roland's innovative imprinting technology, the MPX-90 allows you to permanently inscribe a wide variety of differing shaped and sized items, including products much larger than the work table. So, whatever your personalisation needs, whether it is adding dates and names on a baby's photo frame or engraving a family crest or monogram on silver cutlery as a wedding gift, the MPX-90 has the flexibility and impact power to create an everlasting impression." said Peter Kettle, Roland DG 3D Sales and Product Manager. "Furthermore, the MPX-90 uses a durable diamond-tipped stylus, which can clearly imprint text, logos and photos on a broad range of materials and finishes including brushed and textured surfaces such as oil-filled lighters and stainless steel watch backs" he added. "With the bundled intuitive Metaza Studio design software, users can create stunning inscriptions combining photos, illustrations and text."

Precision imprinting on a wide variety of metallic materials including iron, stainless steel and titanium, the MPX-90 is also ideal for producing the industrial serial plates or directly marking tooling and components for traceability or security/identification purposes – on demand, and with minimal running costs. The bundled Dr. Engrave software allows users to import variable data such as sequential serial numbers and date codes, and quickly output them using the MPX-90. Unlike traditional engravers and laser engraving machines, the MPX-90 allows first-time users to produce perfect results straight away, without complex training, extraction or maintenance.
