Automatic Pallet Changer Modification for Robot/Cobot

Need an extra hand? 

MIDACO's A30SDA40SD & AS50SD series Automatic Pallet Changers can be modified to mount a robot/cobot directly on the pallet changer control panel for enhanced collaborative automation. Let the robot/cobot set-up parts on the pallet changer outside of your VMC while the spindle is cutting, freeing the operator to perform other tasks. (robot/cobot to be purchased separately from authorized dealer).


Eliminate the need for your VMC to sit idle while your robot/cobot loads parts directly onto the machine table.

Reduce strain by automating repetitive part loading tasks. A robot/cobot mounted on the shuttle can easily access parts on a table or conveyor set up along-side of your MIDACO Automatic Pallet Changer and do the loading for you with precision and reliability. 

MIDACO requires robot/cobot arm specifications prior to this customized Automatic Pallet Changer order. Once robot/cobot specifications are confirmed, the shuttle's front control panel is modified with a platform base ready for easy mounting.
