In a time of increasing competition from manufacturing firms all around the world, productivity is more important than ever to the success of your business. To gain a solid edge over your local and global competitors, consider the state-of-the-art automatic dual pallet changer systems of MIDACO.
Our dual pallet changers can be retrofitted onto nearly any make, model, and brand of VMC—including both new and existing equipment. By giving your operator twice as many pallets to work on within the same piece of equipment, they effectively double output to significantly increase profits.
Automatic Dual Pallet Changers for Machining Centers
Similar to a standard aluminum pallet changer with an automatic door system, MIDACO’s dual automatic pallet changers are designed to reduce spindle downtime and increase operator productivity.
With two separate shuttle units (one mounted on each side of your VMC), our dual pallet changers allow for four pallets of parts to be milled automatically and unattended by the machine operator—compared to the two pallets of a standard aluminum pallet changer. While one of the four pallets is being machined, the other three can be unloaded and reloaded for the next operation, doubling the efficiency and operating capacity of a regular auto pallet changer.
Benefits of MIDACO’s automatic dual pallet changers include:
- Compatibility with Nearly Any VMC Brand
- Improved Process and Cost Efficiency with 4-Pallet Capability
- Minimized Spindle Downtime for Consistently High Production Levels
- Increased Operator and Pneumatic Machine Productivity
- Up to 8,000 Pound (3632 kg) capacity
- MIDACO’s Patented “Dual Air Blast” at Each Contact Point
- Easily Paused Job Cycles for JIT Production
- Quick Pallet Exchange with +/- .0001" (.0025 mm) Repeatability
