Automatic Pallet Pools for 5-Axis Machining Centers
Manufacturers around the world understand that a key to remaining competitive in a global economy is to decrease downtime and increase productivity. MIDACO provides solutions that do just that. Particularly with Aerospace and Defense manufacturing becoming more competitive, making the machining process more efficient will reduce the cost per man hour per piece which helps manufacturers compete with lower cost labor countries. Automatic Pallet Changer multi pallet pools for 5-Axis Machining Centers will improve efficiency on new and existing 5-Axis VMCs. Using multiple pallets, these pallet changer systems are ideal for running parts in a "lights out situation". Our pallet changers exceed international standards with CE compliant guarding so they can be used anywhere in the world.
Making machining more efficient reduces the cost per man hour per piece which helps manufacturers compete with lower cost labor countries.
Automatic Multi-Pallet Changer (AMPC) has 19 round aluminum pallets 10" in diameter, enabling the machine to run unattended. With the pallet pool contained within the shuttle, the pallets are rotated along the pallet track and transferred into the machine tool. With a pallet weight capacity of 75 lbs (34.5kg) ea, the operator can schedule 19 of the same parts or program 19 separate jobs to run while they attend to other tasks or close up for the night.
