Automatic and Manual Pallet Changers: Streamlining VMC Workflow

MIDACO's pallet changers, both automatic and manual, are designed to significantly boost productivity by minimizing machining downtime. Here's how:

  1. Increased Machine Spindle Utilization: By changing parts and fixtures outside the machine tool while its cutting, pallet changers allow the VMC to operate continuously. This leads to higher spindle utilization rates and maximizes output.
  2. Reduced Setup Time: With pallet changers, setup time is drastically reduced. Operators can set up multiple pallets with dedicated fixtures and prepare the next job while the machine is running, instead of mounting fixtures directly on the vertical machining center table, leading to seamless transitions between tasks and quicker turnaround times.
  3. Enhanced Precision: Midaco’s pallet changers ensure consistent and precise positioning of workpieces with +/-0.001” (0.025mm) repeatability, resulting in higher quality products and less waste.
  4. Flexibility: These systems are compatible with all VMC brands in a full range of sizes. From small mills with an XY travel of 16” x14” (406.4mm x 355.6mm) up to large Bridge Mills at 190” x 72” (4826mm x 1829mm) and a weight capacity of 32,000 lbs (14,528 kg) on the largest model. With no overhead obstruction for part loading, Midaco pallet changers can handle various workpiece sizes. This flexibility makes them suitable for diverse manufacturing environments.

CNC AutoDoor Opener Systems: Improving Operator Safety and Efficiency

CNC AutoDoor Systems by Midaco are designed to automate the opening and closing of any machine tool doors. The benefits of this innovation are numerous:

  1. Operator Safety: Automated doors minimize the need for operators to manually open and close heavy machine doors, reducing the risk of injuries and ensuring a safer working environment.
  2. Time Savings: AutoDoor systems reduce the non-productive time spent on manual door operations. This allows operators to focus on other tasks, increasing overall productivity.
  3. Enhanced Automation: Integrating AutoDoor systems with robotic loaders and cobots facilitates fully automated production lines, leading to higher efficiency and throughput. Midaco AutoDoor Systems are a “UR - Universal Robots” certified product and are available with a UR+ Cap for seamless integration.
  4. Consistency and Reliability: Automated doors provide consistent performance, reducing wear and tear associated with manual operations and ensuring reliable machine functioning.

Robot Access Door Systems: Enhancing Automation

Robot Access Door Systems from Midaco are designed to provide an alternate access point on any enclosed machine tool for robotic automation systems. They offer several key advantages:

  1. Optimized Automation: These door systems allow robots to access machine tools without human intervention, enabling fully automated workflows and reducing cycle times.
  2. Increased Productivity: By allowing continuous and uninterrupted robot operation, these door systems contribute to higher production rates and improved efficiency.
  3. Safety and Reliability: Like AutoDoor systems, Robot Access Door Systems enhance safety by eliminating the need for manual door operations, reducing wear on the robot or cobot. They are designed for durability and consistent performance.
  4. Scalability: These systems provide an alternate access point to the machine tool allowing one robot to work on multiple machines at once, providing a flexible solution for expanding production capabilities.
