For nearly 50 years, MIDACO has been the global leader in pallet changers and other manufacturing automation solutions. We’ve helped many Rockford manufacturers dramatically boost their output with the addition of a trunnion system to their automatic pallet changer. This system can help both large and small shops maintain a competitive edge by shaving downtime and maximizing productivity.

Trunnion System for 4th-Axis Machining in Rockford

A trunnion system is a machine tool automation add-on that can be fitted to existing equipment or purchased together with a new machine. Manufacturers start recouping their investment immediately through greater productivity and decreased downtime.

In addition to giving you the benefits of a horizontal on a vertical, MIDACO’s trunnion system for 4th-axis machining also provides other benefits such as:

  • The addition of a vertical rotary faceplate (VRF) for versatility and greater workholding options.
  • A single rotary indexer for operation of two trunnions
  • The equipment can be rotated 360° to use both sides
  • Designed to machine up to five sides of the part
  • No cable management is required
