Automatic Pallet Changers for Machining Centers
Our Automatic Pallet Changer is the perfect partner to your Vertical Machining Center. Our pallet changers can be integrated with new equipment or with your existing machinery. Mounted on either the right or left side of the VMC, MIDACO's pallet changers work with your VMC to greatly reduce spindle downtime. While pallet "A" is in the VMC, being machined, pallet "B" is outside with the operator removing finished parts and loading the pallet with new parts for the next operation. Once the parts inside the VMC are complete, the pallets switch out automatically and the process repeats, virtually eliminating spindle downtime.
Benefits of MIDACO's Automatic Pallet Changer include:
- Heavy/large workpieces easily loaded outside the machine
- Increased machine and operator productivity
- Dual air blast at each contact pad
- Jobs can easily be interrupted for emergency jobs (JIT)
- Pallets easily interchange between machines or departments
- Exchange pallet in seconds with a +/- .0001" (.0025 mm) repeatability
