Midaco is simply the best when it comes to pallet changers on our CNC machines. We rarely have any issues, quality is top notch. When service is needed, they are always there to help us through any issue we are having. There product has helped us achieve maximum output from out CNCs and I would only refer Midaco to anyone asking.
Marriage between our DM-1 and Midaco Pallet changer is very successful. It is fast, and do not leave a lot more to desire. Increase in productivity is tremendous. In our set up it takes about 1 minute to 1 pallet, and about 2-3 minutes to reload it. Midaco Pallet Changer is bringing us substantial savings compare to running it without changer, and huge savings compare to manual machining. Another awesome advantage is with ease of operation. There is no need to lean in to machine and try to work in small and tiny space. All reloads are done in maximum comfort. Since we get set up last year we had to move to new location. Disassembly and assembly went smooth and easy. Both steps done under 2 hours. Setup in action: https://youtu.be/_XqWz65t5p0
We have a Midaco pallet changer on our Haas DM2. It’s been a good experience, it integrated easily with the Haas control and has given a huge boon to our productivity. Easy to program and easy to use.
We just installed our second pallet machine with another Haas DM1 each time it has been a smooth install. During the second install Midaco even looked our original machine over and made adjustments due to us moving the machine to make room for the new machine. The service and tech departments are awesome to work with and usually get us running with just some help over the phone. We Recommend Midaco to everyone we talk with!
This has been a great add to our HASS VF4 SS. It allows us to load and unload parts and keep the machine cutting. Call service and they answer and have an answer for your issue.
Good People, friendly staff, knowledgeable, not to mention the install peeps are excellent and fast. if you have the space Pallet changers are the correct choice. we have 7 Midacos and we recommend. unless you want to be slow and not competitive. than open the doors and take your time. :) Geo
From the installation tech to use of the pallet system, I am very pleased with how well these work. Very user friendly and i would recommend to anyone that can keep the machine running and could utilize the pallet system!
Running pallet changer for 2 years 24 hrs / 5 days. System works great. High volume production over 25,000 pallet change cycles so far.
After our initial successful test of a Midaco pallet changer on a Haas VF2SS in 2015, we made the decision to install four VF3's with Midaco pallet changers. No regrets. There isn't much arguing with a spindle utilization increase of 50% with no increase in labor cost. Prior to these pallet changers our typical spindle utilization was approximately 60%. Afterward, it's typically in excess of 90%. Pretty simple straight forward way to dramatically increase output. If this is something you're considering, the larger pallets compatible with extended-Y machines make it easy to install larger, 2-station vises which improves throughput even more.
Im not sure if there are other pallet companies but after dealing with the service / tech team at Midaco i'm glad it was their equipment attached to our cnc mill. We had a few bumps and bruises while implementing new production setups and with Dave and Bobs support we are back up and running. I have troubled them several times even during a trade show - yet they gave me their full attention with great patience including prompt email assistance.
