For manufacturers in Rochester, time equals money. When it's possible to shave even a few seconds off the production of each component, most companies will take that option. Reduce the amount of time for 4th-axis machining with the installation of a MIDACO trunnion system.

Since 1969, we've provided cost-effective manufacturing solutions for operations in Rochester and around the globe. Our efficient, straightforward trunnion system is the perfect add-on for your automatic pallet changers.

Trunnion System for 4th-Axis Machining in Rochester

While many CNC machines can quickly mill raw material into useful components, some require additional assistance to get the material into the correct positions for work. Our trunnion system for 4th-axis machining allows machines to easily mill up to five sides of the part. This system also fits neatly onto a two-pallet changer, which only increases this unit's versatility with a time-saving function.

If you are considering this automatic pallet changer add-on, you'll find that it comes with multiple features and benefits for Rochester companies:

  • The 4th axis assembly remains inside the CNC machine, so there is no cable management required.
  • Each system comes with two trunnions and a single rotary indexer assembly capable of operating both.
  • Several trunnion system series are available for existing and brand new automatic pallet changers.
  • Use a vertical rotary faceplate to increase the versatility of CNC milling on different sides.
