"Robot Ready" Automatic Pallet Changer

Midaco Automatic Pallet Changer with UR10 robot arm extended back ove the pallets on shuttle mounted on the right side of a VMC

Need an extra hand? 

MIDACO's A16SDA30SDA40SD & AS50SD series Automatic Pallet Changers can be modified to mount a robot/cobot directly on the pallet changer control panel for enhanced collaborative automation. Let the robot/cobot set-up parts on the pallet changer outside of your VMC while the spindle is cutting, freeing the operator to perform other tasks. 

Note: Robot/cobot is to be purchased separately from an authorized dealer. MIDACO does not supply the robot/cobot.


Eliminate the need for your VMC to sit idle while your robot/cobot loads parts directly onto the machine table.

Reduce strain by automating repetitive part loading tasks. A robot/cobot mounted on the shuttle can easily access parts on a table or conveyor set up along-side of your MIDACO Automatic Pallet Changer and do the loading for you with precision and reliability. 


MIDACO requires robot/cobot arm specifications prior to this customized Automatic Pallet Changer order. 


Once robot/cobot specifications are confirmed, the shuttle's front control panel is modified with a platform base ready for easy mounting.

MIDACO's Hydraulic Docking System is an ideal solution for unattended Robot/Cobot applications on A16SDA30SDA40SD & AS50SD Automatic Pallet Changers.

With the Hydraulic Docking System, fixtures and vises are automatically clamped and unclamped on the pallet and stay charged inside the machining center WITHOUT NEEDING HOSES.
