Roland DG Launches VersaSTUDIO MPX-90S Desktop Metal Printer for Easy Production of Premium Goods
Hamamatsu, Japan, September 29th, 2022 – Roland DG Corporation launched the MPX-90S, the newest addition to the VersaSTUDIO MPX series of metal printers.
The MPX series imprints text, graphics, and photos by striking metal or acrylic surfaces with a diamond-tipped stylus at high speed. Since the first MPX model was launched in 2000, they have been used in a wide range of fields, from the production of personalized items such as gifts and accessories, to industrial applications such as imprinting product nameplates, and medical applications such as permanently marking 2D barcodes on medical instruments.
Tony Miller, President, Global Sales and Marketing Division, said, “In recent years, the diversification of consumer tastes and preferences has led to a growing demand for personalized services. For example, gift and accessory shops want to offer new services with high added value, and individuals want to start their own original goods business by utilizing their skills in design and other areas. The MPX-90S is the latest model in the series to respond to these voices with a simpler, easier to use, and more affordable version so that it can be introduced to a wider range of people.”
The MPX-90S supports a maximum print area of 80 mm x 80 mm. It can print clearly and beautifully on hard metals such as brass, stainless steel, and titanium; precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum; resin-based materials such as acrylic; and materials with special surface finishes such as hairline, grainy, or alumite.
The printing process is simple and easy enough for anyone to use. Photos taken with a smartphone or text and illustrations created with commercially available design software can be loaded into the included Roland METAZAStudio software for simple editing tasks such as removing backgrounds or combining photos and text. Then, simply load the material into the device and print. The machine’s full cover ensures safe operation, and the imprinting method generates no debris, allowing the device to be used cleanly in a variety of locations.
“Since our founding in 1981,” Miller said, “we have been helping to revolutionize processes and create new value in a variety of industries with digital solutions that make it easy for anyone to do work that previously could only be done by people with special expertise and skill. The MPX-90S is a solution that makes it easy to create attractive, premium gifts and accessories using metal materials that previously had to be outsourced to specialized vendors. We are confident that they will be a powerful tool to support the needs of retailers and businesses looking for profitable new services with limited staff and space, as well as individuals who want to start their own businesses from home. We will continue to expand our desktop products lines like the VersaSTUDIO MPX-90S to provide more people around the world with new business possibilities and the joy of creation.”
