As an innovative add-on for automatic pallet changers, Jackson manufacturers can increase 4th-axis productivity by adding a trunnion system to their pallet changer system. Available with new machines or to be retrofitted to your existing equipment, our trunnion systems turn your vertical machining center into a horizontal—with no cable management needed!

Trunnion System for 4th-Axis Machining in Jackson

Manufacturers don’t necessarily have to update all of their equipment in order to increase output. A trunnion system for 4th-axis machining is an automatic pallet changer add-on that can improve efficiency by allowing the machine to mill parts on up to five sides. The benefits of this add-on are worth the investment, and our products are designed to offer benefits that include:

  • Rotation of 360° to use both sides
  • Benefits of a horizontal on a vertical with one 4th axis
  • Only one rotary indexer needed to operate two trunnions
  • Integration with existing machinery, as well as customization.
  • Pairing with a vertical rotary faceplate will offer versatility in workholding options
