Automation Made Simple

Solution 1. A40SD "Robot/Cobot Ready" Automatic Pallet Changer Package 

MIDACO has put together a “Robot/Cobot Ready" Automatic Pallet Changer package to take the complexity out of automated CNC machine tending and part loading. For job shops today experiencing challenges in finding labor, it’s a definite way to go.

This Automatic Pallet Changer is equipped with a "Robot/Cobot Ready" Modification to mount your Cobot directly onto the shuttle allowing the Cobot to load parts onto the pallet from side carts or a conveyor on either side of the machine while the VMC spindle is cutting, creating hours of unattended machining time. 

The included Hydraulic Docking System allows the robot to load parts into automated workholding, which clamp and remain charged throughout the cutting process, eliminating the need for cable management.

AutoDoor Openers are built specifically for your CNC and include mounting hardware and the UR Cap to simplify the interfacing task. Reduce wear on your Cobot and minimize idle machining time by eliminating the need for the Cobot to handle doors in between cycles.
