No matter what type of Minneapolis manufacturing facility you manage, spindle downtime is one of the costliest factors of your entire production process. To reduce spindle downtime without entirely replacing your pallet changers or adding the extra labor of cable management, simply add a trunnion system from MIDACO. Far beyond Minneapolis, manufacturers around the world have achieved significant increases in productivity with a cost-effective trunnion system addition.

Increase Capacity With a Trunnion System for 4th-Axis Machining

At MIDACO, we specialize in advanced technology that helps CNC machining centers of all industries enhance productivity—without having to hire additional operators or completely upgrade facility equipment. As an automatic pallet changer add-on, our trunnion systems can be configured to fit any new or existing pallet changer. You’ll get the benefits of a horizontal on a vertical with a single rotary indexer to operate two trunnions.

This state-of-the-art trunnion system for 4th-axis machining is engineered to machine parts on five sides, rotating a full 360°, and it requires no cable management because the 4th axis stays inside the tool. When added to your existing automatic pallet changer, trunnions will increase your VMC’s machining capability and overall productivity.

You can also add a Vertical Rotary Faceplate (VRF) for more versatility in workholding. Most importantly, our trunnion systems can be readily retrofitted as an automatic pallet changer add-on for any of the machines in your center!
