Roland DGA Unveils Its First 3D Printer and a New Milling Machine

Maker of Digital Fabrication Tools Targets Professional Designers and Educators with Unique Combo 

Irvine, California, September 3, 2014 – Roland DGA Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and 3D devices, announced today the release of the monoFab™ series, including the company’s first additive 3D printer, the ARM-10, and a new compact 3D subtractive milling machine, the SRM-20.

“The monoFab series desktop fabrication tools are the culmination of over 25 years of experience in 3D milling,” said Rachel Hammer, 3D product manager for Roland DGA. “By combining the capabilities of these advanced rapid prototyping machines, users can select the best method for their workflow, from concept to production. Now, designers have greater opportunities to turn their ideas into reality.”

The ARM-10 3D printer is ideal for validating a design in the initial stages of prototyping or modeling a complex shape. Incorporating a Digital Light Processing (DLP) layered projection system, this rapid prototyping 3D printer builds models by sequentially curing layers of resin from a resin tray. Simultaneous production of multiple objects can be accomplished within the same work area to reduce modeling time. The suspended build system also minimizes resin usage. Roland’s imageCure™resin becomes semi-transparent when cured, and post-processing procedures like support removal and polishing are simple to do. The included monoFab Player AM software supports 3D printing from STL files and features automatic functions such as healing that fills in any gaps in 3D data, simplifies meshes and generates supports.

Based on more than 25 years of Roland innovations in manufacturing CNC machines, the SRM-20  desktop mill incorporates the latest subtractive rapid prototyping technologies. With its new milling spindle, independent collet, circuit board and firmware, the SRM-20 delivers speed, precision and ease of use in a compact desktop size. The SRM-20 can mill a variety of non-proprietary materials typically used for prototyping, including acrylic, ABS, wood and modeling wax, making it possible to check the feel and weight of materials that are similar or the same as final deliverables. An interlocked cover prevents dust from escaping during milling for a safe, clean and quiet environment. A full suite of software is included for out-of-the-box productivity.

The monoFab series is available worldwide from authorized Roland distributors. More information is available at the company’s web site  www.rolanddga.com/monofab.
