Investing in a top-tier vertical machine center like Mikron is important to maximizing the production capabilities of your facility—but there’s more to efficiency than what happens on the work table. If your VMC operators are still having to manually load, unload, and switch out parts directly on your Mikron machining center table, you’re sacrificing thousands of minutes of valuable spindle time every year.

Consider how much more could you produce with an automatic pallet changer from Midaco! Our Mikron pallet changers eliminate the inefficiencies of manual pallet changing to allow your facility to reach its full manufacturing potential. Because our top-of-the-line add-ons are already compatible with all makes and models of Mikron VMCs, you can have your time-saving pallet changer installed with almost no disruption to regular operations.
