To survive in the competitive business world today, a machining center must be able to operate at top capacity without any wasted time or labor. At MIDACO, we’ve specialized in productivity-maximizing manufacturing solutions since 1969—and our y-axis shift automatic pallet changers are just one of the latest innovations designed to boost your company’s bottom line and contribute to sustainable profit and growth.
Automatic Pallet Changers for Machining Centers
Ideal for traveling column machining centers where the table does not move in Y-axis, MIDACO’s Y-Axis Shift Automatic Pallet Changers are mounted on one side of your Vertical Machining Center (VMC) and include the following components: a pneumatic machine receiver with air blast, two heavy-duty pallets, and an end load shuttle unit with automatic door system and indicator lamp. While one of the two pallets are being milled inside the VMC, the other can be prepared by the machine operator—reducing idle time and maximizing productivity. Once the machining is finished, the aluminum pallet changer switches the pallets automatically.
Benefits of MIDACO’s Y-Axis Shift Auto Pallet Changer include:
- Compatibility with virtually all VMC brands and machine applications
- Increased operator, machine, and overall center productivity
- Minimized spindle downtime for continuous operation levels
- Improved process and cost efficiency for your machining center
- Easily paused job cycles for JIT production
