Clipper Industries in Itasca, Illinois adds a MIDACO A6040SD Pallet System and HAAS VF8 Machining Center, reducing their cost per part 30-50%, and slashing process lead-time over 75% from 3-4 weeks down to 3-4 days. "The fact that the system automatically exchanges pallets in less than 30 seconds with ± 0.0001-inch repeatability amplifies these time savings", Mr. Potter adds. “There is virtually no downtime between loads, and this increases both machine and operator productivity.”
