MIDACO Automatic Pallet Changers provide quality, value and longevity.

Sixteen years ago Ajax Tool Works in Franklin Park, Illinois needed a solution to increase production on their Daewoo DMV 650S. Being a full service manufacturer of industrial tools since 1946, they are focused on their own customer’s needs and have earned a reputation of uncompromising dedication to quality. Choosing a MIDACO A5025SD Automatic Pallet Changer to add on to their VMC fit right in with their commitment to their customers. The proof is shown in the longevity of their pallet changer purchased in 2002 and their choice to contact MIDACO their second Automatic Pallet Changer System.

Ajax has machining capability from large production runs to small specialized jobs on their CNC machines. They have had consistent and reliable performance from their MIDACO unit over the past 16 years with heavy duty usage. Mike Malget, Ajax Tools Executive V.P. of Operations, shared why they recently decided to equip their Doosan Mynx 6500 with another MIDACO Automatic Pallet Changer.

“The reason we chose to purchase a new MIDACO Pallet Changer is simple, our 16 year old system is still performing like new. In addition to reliability, MIDACO has always supported us either over the phone or on site with any troubleshooting questions. MIDACO's Pallet Changer allows us to load and unload pallets outside of machine where there is more room while parts on second pallet are machined. We are very happy with our choice to purchase from MIDACO and are looking forward to our new system.” - Mike Malget, Ajax Tools Executive V.P. of Operations
