Hydraulic Docking System for Automated Fixture and Vice Clamping on Automatic Pallet Changers

With the Hydraulic Docking System on a MIDACO Automatic Pallet Changer, fixtures and vices are automatically clamped and unclamped on the pallet and sent into the machining center. An ideal solution for unattended robot/cobot applications.

No Hose Management Required.

The Hydraulic Docking System allows automated workholding to enter the machining center WITHOUT HOSES.

When new parts are put onto the pallet, the Hydraulic Docking System locks fixtures or vices into place and the pallet enters the machining center WITHOUT HOSES.

Clamping fixtures or vices will STAY CHARGED on the pallet WITHOUT HOSES while in the machining center.

When a pallet comes out of the machining center, it locks back into the Hydraulic Docking Station and automatically releases fixtures or vices allowing parts to be quickly replaced.

  • 2HP 230/460 3-PH motor

Note: fixtures and vices not included.
