Vertical Rotary and Trunnion System Automatic Pallet Changer Add-On

Maximize productivity and ergonomics with MIDACO’s innovative trunnion system for 4th-axis machining that allows you to get the benefits of a Horizontal machining center on your Vertical. The trunnion system includes one 4th-axis Actuator Assembly and two trunnions. The trunnion is clamped onto the pallet and transferred into the machining area via the MIDACO automatic pallet changer and rotates 360 degrees for use on both sides. Add a Vertical Rotary Faceplate (VRF) to a MIDACO pallet changer for even greater versatility.

Benefits and features you can expect from our quality automatic pallet changer add-on include:

  • Only ONE 4th Axis rotary indexer is required to operate two trunnions.
  • Designed to machine up to 5 sides of the part.
  • No cable management required as 4th axis stays in the machine tool
  • Versatility of a Horizontal on your Vertical.
