Roland DG Corporation has introduced the new MODELA PRO II MDX-540 Benchtop Milling Machine, ideal for Subtractive Rapid Prototyping (SRP) and industrial design including the production of moulds and parts for in-house use.

The MODELA PRO II is well suited for short-run production applications, and can be purchased with an optional automatic tool changer, rotary axis unit and T-slot table which together support a wide range of milling applications.

Every MODELA PRO II comes with robust, easy-to-use Roland SRP Player CAM software, and an easy-to-navigate operation panel.

According to Roland DG 3D Product Manager Mathew Landrigan, MODELA PRO II and SRP Player have revolutionised the conventional milling process, making milling easier.

Until now, precision milling has required the advanced skills of experienced professionals. With the introduction of MODELA PRO II and Roland SRP Player, it is easier to achieve professional results.
