Mill Fine Details and Smooth Finishes

With an improved drive system, machine rigidity and enhanced drive mechanics, the MDX-50 mills incredibly smooth and accurate prototypes for testing structure, function, and assembly with other parts. A machining area of 15.7”(400mm) (X) x 12”(305mm) (Y) x 5.3”(135mm) (Z) supports production of large single objects or batch production of smaller multiple parts.

Free Your Time

The automated features of the MDX-50 enables users to mill with speed and confidence. Combine the 5-station ATC and optional rotary axis unit for the most automated and precise operation:

    Auto-sensing function corrects the tool length to ensure milling accuracy for every job
    Optional rotary axis for effortless production of complex surfaces:
        Includes a wide, self-centering headstock and tailstock workpiece clamps
        Auto-rotates materials from 0-to-360 degrees
        Indexes for 2-sided, 4-sided and custom angles

Superior Reliability and Support
The MDX-50 represents the most reliable technology backed by unmatched customer service and technical support, and comes with a comprehensive one-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Roland DG's international ISO certifications are your assurance of our commitment to quality products and service.
