To become as profitable as possible and gain an edge over the competition, it’s absolutely critical to minimize the downtime of your Lansing manufacturing facility. Every minute that a machine sits unused or that an operator has to manually adjust equipment is a minute that could be spent in full-capacity production.
Since 1969, MIDACO has helped manufacturers in Lansing and around the globe maximize the productivity of their manufacturing facilities. With an upgrade to our automation solutions, you can reduce spindle downtime, enhance operator capabilities, and increase profits with state-of-the-art pallet changing technology that includes:
- Automatic Pallet Changers
- Manual Pallet Changers
- Pallet Changer Add-ons
Automatic Pallet Changers for Seamless Operation
Mounted directly onto your new or refurbished VMC, our automatic pallet changers significantly decrease spindle downtime. As your VMC machines the parts on Pallet A, the operator can switch out and load parts on Pallet B. Once Pallet A is finished, the machine switches the pallets and repeats. This process of cycling pallets is done automatically and continuously, so there’s virtually no downtime or waste.
Our Lansing automatic pallet changers come in multiple configurations to suit any production application:
- Dual Pallets
- Single Pallets
Cost-Effective Manual Pallet Changers in Lansing
Similar to automatic pallet changers, manual pallet changers also allow your VMC operator to work on one pallet while another is being processed inside the machine. However, with a manual pallet changer, the operator physically loads and unloads the parts rather than the machine itself automating the task. As the more basic of the two designs, manual pallet changers still provide a remarkable increase in production capabilities compared to machines without a pallet changer. Their affordable price also makes them a popular choice for many facilities in Lansing.
Innovative Add-ons for Automatic Pallet Changer Systems
In addition to our new and refurbished pallet changer systems, MIDACO is proud to offer a variety of productivity-enhancing add-ons for CNC equipment. These additional components can be retrofitted to your pallet changers or included as part of your brand-new equipment. They include:
- Automatic Door Systems: Our automatic door systems adapt to a wide variety of machining centers and turning centers to enhance productivity and ergonomics.
- Trunnion Systems: Trunnion systems give you the benefit of a horizontal on a vertical, offering machining on up to five sides of a part without cable management.
