Testing the MDX-540 4-Axis CNC from @RolandDGA via @testedcom #ManufacturingMonday
We’re looking at CNCs today and reminded of this review of the MDX-540 by Ben Light for Tested.com:
This is the MDX-540 with a rotary axis made by the Roland DGA Corporation. A 4-axis mill can do everything an X, Y, Z machine can do, but it can also rotate the cutting material around an ‘A’ axis. Essentially, this mill combines the functionality of a typical CNC and a lathe. With that additional axis, you’re able to create complex double-sided objects and components with undercuts.
