Roland DGA Introduces New SRP Tools

RP & M Show in Chicago: Booth #1127

Chicago, IL. May 12, 2003 Roland DGA Corporation, a worldwide leader in Subtractive Rapid Prototyping (SRP) and Reverse Engineering technologies, today introduced sixteen new end mills

Available as flat or ball end mills, the tool set was developed specially for the Roland SRP system. In addition to industry-standard measurements of 3/8", 1/4", 1/16", 1/32" and 1/64", the collection features four tools (2 ball-end & 2 flat-end mills) that are six-inches in length. These extra-long tools are particularly well suited for rapid prototyping, as they can effectively mill deep internal cavities.

"With the addition of these new tools from Roland, engineers now have a complete SRP system," said Matt Owens, Roland Product Manager. "With SRP devices, software, materials and now tools, the Roland SRP system makes it easy to mill prototypes with superior speed and precision."

SRP System
Powered by AC Servo motors on all three axes, Roland MDX Series benchtop devices mill up to 200 inches per minute. They have a mechanical resolution of 0.000039" and turn out smooth, precise prototypes. When a prototype is done, it requires no hand finishing. Compatible materials include polyurethane, ABS, modeling wax and aluminum. The MDX-650 can be fitted with the Roland Automatic Tool Changer (ATC) and 4th Rotary Axis. Together, these optional accessories let engineers automatically mill the full circumference of 3D objects. The MDX-650 has a maximum work area of 25.563" (X) x 17.688" (Y) x 6.167" (Z). The MDX-500 has a maximum work area of 19.625" (X) x 12.938" (Y) x 4.125" (Z).

The MDX-20 and MDX-15 are desktop models with the ability to scan as well as mill 3D objects. Roland customers use the devices for a variety of product design tasks, including reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, jewelry and model making, and small lot production. Select the spindle tip for state-of-the-art SRP milling, or select the Roland Active Piezo Sensor for precise 3D scanning. Maximum work area for the MDX-20 is 8" (X) x 6" (Y) x 2.375" (Z). Maximum work area for the MDX-15 is 6" (X) x 4" (Y) x 2.375" (Z).

In addition to the SRP devices and new tools, Roland also offers materials made from light-density and medium-density polyurethane. These materials are designed for a wide variety of 3D applications, from mold creation to rapid prototyping.

Roland completes the SRP system by bundling CAM software with all of its SRP devices. The software enables design engineers to produce prototypes directly from 3D CAD models. Tool verification software, also included, makes the SRP process remarkably easy.

All Roland SRP tools are made from solid micro grain carbide.
