Machining Center Pallet Changer for South Africa Facilities

When you add an automatic pallet changer to a new machine or as a CNC add-on, machine operators will no longer need to manually lift heavy workpieces. Instead, they can be easily loaded outside the machine.  Employees’ time will be used more efficiently and the chance of injuries from repetitive tasks will be reduced.

Innovative Mitsubishi controls allow for password protection, current I/O status, diagnostics, and more. Other features of our pallet changers for manufacturing include:

  • Up to 32,000 pound (14,528 kg) capacity depending on your application (with weight evenly distributed on the pallets)
  • Safety features that make it fast and easy to interrupt jobs for an emergency
  • Fully integrate with CNC machine by using M-Functions
  • Exchange a pallet in seconds with +/- .0001” (.0025 mm) repeatability

The First Choice for International Pallet Changers

In order to abide by international regulations, MIDACO pallet changers can be outfitted with a three-sided CE door or light sensor enclosure which accommodates loading with an overhead crane.

We have several options and can help you choose the model and features that make the most sense for your facility. An investment in a MIDACO international pallet changer will increase your bottom line, and our simple online payback calculator can help you determine how much you can save in operating costs. Shops save up to $52,000 per machine per year—so the savings are quite significant.
