Apsom Infotex and Roland DG bring the perfect solution for prototyping with MDX 540

Press release from the issuing company

India - The MDX-540 3D milling machines provide some of the quickest solutions with being most precise and comprehensible devices on the market. Perfect options for producing everything from functional and snap-fit parts and prototypes to light metal molds, Roland DG offers a high-performance prototyping solution which is available in standard and enhanced models. The MDX-540 bench top milling machines offer superior CNC milling at a reasonable price.
As a subtractive instead of additive 3D machine, the MDX-540 Rapid Prototype Machine supports an array of non-proprietary materials that include ABS, nylon, hardwood, plywood, FDA approved resins, non-ferrous metals and much more. Some of the applications where the mdx 540 can prove to be an asset include snap-fit parts, molds for casting, toys and games, product prototypes and accessories, furnishings and decorations, electrical parts and casings, relief signs and graphics and much more.
The efficient rapid prototype machine has the potential to create functional prototypes and proof of concept testing for industrial and commercial release, such as thermal and structural trials. Used largely by engineers, the MDX-540 is a great option for crafting aluminum, brass and copper molds for rapid injection molding and EDM electrodes for production tooling. In addition to which, MDX-540 parts meet a host of FDA and other government regulations as well.
Roland DG's MDX 540 comes along with a Handy Panel hand-held controller permitting a user to manage  and organize work from a distance, while the Virtual Control Panel allows one to control the machine directly from your PC too. Both alternatives make things easier in the setup and functioning by letting one change spindle speed and decide upon other options from a convenient location.
It is a versatile device making it well suited for both professional and educational applications since it supports G-code NC programming language too. Intended for use by design professionals as well as students and novices, the MDX is equipped with a SRP Player that 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 produces tool paths with great efficiency, speed and exactness. It also offers 3D scaling, support for 4-axis milling and simulation of finished 3D parts.
 The machine also gives its users the freedom to put together the system just the way they want with added safety covers and a series of collets to work with specific industry standard tooling. The added extras time saving and high utility features include  time and error-saving Rotary Axis which allows users to rotate an object until all four sides have been milled, and also an Automatic Tool Changer that changes up to four preset tools of different sizes with an air-activated, high-precision spindle.
