Product Description

MODELA MDX-50

Benchtop Milling Machine

Automated Milling

The MDX-50 benchtop CNC mill combines precise, automated milling and unmatched ease-of-use. An ideal solution for short runs and prototypes, the MDX-50 reduces operation time and simplifies production so users of all abilities can mill functional parts with incredible quality on a wide range of materials.

Operator-Friendly Control and Software

Become a 3D milling expert almost immediately with the MDX-50’s simple yet powerful built-in control panel and virtual control panel (VPanel), and bundled SRP Player CAM software that’s easy-to-use and simplifies operation.
With the control panel at the front of the unit, almost all operations can be completed from the unit itself without having to go back to a PC. The VPanel interface operates seamlessly with the MDX-50 and allows users to make changes to spindle rotation or speed during operation.

Virtual Control Panel (VPanel)

VPanel serves as a computer-based virtual control panel with all of the functionality of the physical on-board control panel, as well as tool life management and e-mail alerts.

Other Distinguishing Features

    • Advanced drive system supports dimensional stability
    • Large machining area plus enhanced machine rigidity and drive mechanics
    • Optional Rotary Axis with self-centering headstock and tailstock workpiece clamps
    • Simple-to-load tools and automatic machine calibration
    • Requires no special electrical set-up and needs no additional air compressor
    • Multi color-coded LED status light notifications and email notifications inform of machine status
    • Built-in debris collection drawer with rail guided safety door for safe and clean production
    • Ideal for use in studio and educational environments

 

Precision Milling on a Wide Range of Materials

The following items are just some of the materials that can be milled with the MDX-50 benchtop CNC mill:
• ABS
• POM
• Nylon
• Plastic Foam
• Modeling Wax
• PVC
• Plywood
• Hardwood

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 15.8”(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

 


SRP Player CAM
The popular in Industry and Education 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.

ClickMill
ClickMill Software provides direct control of the MDX-50 for surfacing, drilling holes, cutting pockets and other finishing processes, all without having to access CAD or CAM software.

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