If you’re like many manufacturers in Milaca, your facility would benefit from upgraded machinery—but replacing all of your automatic pallet changers with more current models can be cost-prohibitive, no matter how impressive the results might be.

To get the benefits of 4th axis machining without having to replace your entire line of manufacturing equipment, add a trunnion system from MIDACO. These advanced systems provide 360° parts machining without the need for cable management, and it only requires one rotary indexer to operate two trunnions on your automatic pallet changer.

Benefits of a Trunnion System for 4th-Axis Machining

No matter what kind of Milaca machining center you manage, a MIDACO trunnion system offers significant benefits, including:

  • Easy Retrofitting: Our trunnion system for 4th-axis machining can be added to a new automatic pallet changer or retrofitted to nearly any existing model.
  • Cost Savings: If you choose to incorporate trunnions as an automatic pallet changer add-on, you’ll save the cost otherwise spent on brand-new machining systems.
  • Simple Operation: Our trunnion systems turn your vertical machining center into a horizontal to allow for milling on five sides of the part—without the added complication of cable management.

Ultimately, all of these benefits point to the most significant advantage of a MIDACO trunnion system: increased productivity. By increasing your VMC’s capability without adding cables, our trunnions allow for greater output with the same machines—maximizing the efficiency of your operation.
