Creating Precision Prototypes and 3D Models Has Never Been Easier
The Roland MODELA MDX-50 mills an impressive variety of materials to produce models, vacuum forming moulds, jigs, parts, prototypes and more with smooth surface detail.
The MDX-50 creates prototypes out of materials similar to the end product, allowing you to test structural and functional operations, and assembly with other parts. With a machining area of 400 (X) x 305 (Y) x 135 (Z) mm, the MDX-50 can produce large single objects or batch produce smaller multiple parts, making it ideal for a host of applications. A new Built-In-Panel allows you to adjust spindle and milling speed on the fly, while the on-screen “V-Panel” function aids production by monitoring tool life and notifying users via email when a job is completed or intervention is required.
Exceptional quality for a superb finish on a wide range of materials.

Unattended operation for efficient workflow.
The MDX-50 features an ATC (Automatic Tool Changer) as standard, to allow unattended operation day and night. The auto-sensing function corrects the tool length to ensure milling accuracy for every job. The optional rotary axis rotates materials automatically from 0 to 360 degrees continuously or indexes for 2-sided, 4-sided and custom angles to enable the easy and efficient production of pieces with complex surfaces. Thanks to the ATC and rotary axis units, once milling begins users can leave the device to run unattended with confidence, enabling them to get on with other jobs.
User-friendly bundled CAM software delivers exceptional results.
Popular in Industry and Education, the intuitive “SRP Player” CAM software has been updated to match the advanced functions of the MDX-50. Milling settings can be configured in five simple steps, making operation straightforward even for those new to milling.
Simple control from the MDX-50 Built-In Panel.
The integrated control panel on the MDX-50 makes setting up milling jobs a breeze. Adjust spindle and milling speed on the fly and receive instant updates on job status. The on-screen “V-Panel” function aids production by monitoring tool life and notifying users via email when a job is completed or intervention is required.
Outstanding safety and clean working environment.
The MDX-50 has been designed for safe and trouble-free operation, making it ideal for use in studio and educational environments. The cover ensures safe operation and waste is contained in the integrated dust tray to create a cleaner, more comfortable working environment. Current job status can be monitored from a distance with the colour-coded LED status lights and the illuminated work area makes mounting materials easier and safer.
With the MDX-50 you get the same built-to-last reliability and unmatched service and support that Roland devices are famous for. Like all Roland products, the MDX-50 was designed and manufactured at a state-of-the-art, ISO-certified facility. With a 3 Year Parts ‘n All Warranty, you have the peace of mind knowing your device is backed by one of the most comprehensive warranty packages in the industry.
