With the success of your manufacturing company at stake, you can’t afford to waste precious time and resources—even on something as seemingly negligible as manual part changing on your Johnford VMCs.

Just think about it. If your vertical machine center operators have to manually unload, reload, adjust, and set up parts directly on the machine table between every single job of every single production run, that’s hundreds of hours of wasted time. Imagine what your company could achieve with all those extra resources!

That’s why Midaco has specialized in advanced pallet changers and machine shop productivity solutions since 1969:  to help business owners like you make the most of their Johnford machining center technology. We’ll help you reduce inefficiencies and take profits to the next level.
