MDX-540 Milling Machine Features

Limitless 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, 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
Moulds for casting
Toys and games
Product prototypes
Jewellery and accessories
Furnishings and decorations
Electrical parts and casings
Relief signs and graphics

Make Fit and Function Prototypes

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 aluminium, brass and copper moulds for rapid injection moulding and EDM electrodes for production tooling.

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.


G Code Support

The MDX-50 supports G-code NC programming language, making it well suited for both professional and educational applications.

Minimal Finishing Required

MDX-540 devices use high-precision 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 require little to no post finishing work.

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

The Handy Panel hand-held controller offers a convenient control for setting origins and the ability to adjust milling speeds on the fly, 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 conveniently.

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 4 sides have been milled, and an Automatic Tool Changer that changes up to 4 preset tools of different sizes with an air-activated, high-precision spindle.
