When companies strive to stay competitive in the manufacturing world, embracing new technologies and ways of improving the work process can be the key to success. Increase the versatility of your operation with a 4th-axis trunnion system for automatic pallet changers.

These durable trunnions allow Wisconsin manufacturers to take full advantage of horizontal and vertical machining. Since 1969, MIDACO has provided Milwaukee companies with cutting-edge options that help them remain ahead of competitors. With this additional unit on your pallet changer, workers will be able to machine up to five sides of part—without extra downtime.

Efficient Trunnion System for 4th-Axis Machining

At MIDACO, we know that manufacturers want components that increase productivity without increasing complexity or effort. Our trunnion system for 4th-axis machining makes it possible to quickly rotate a part into the next position for a router. There is no need for workers to physically remove the metal component and reposition it when this automatic pallet changer add-on does it for them.

MIDACO has built these high-quality machining units with several benefits and options for Milwaukee manufacturers, including:

  • No cable management needed!
  • Operation of two trunnions with a single rotary indexer.
  • Ability to be added to existing machinery or purchased with new pallet changers.
  • Optional vertical rotary faceplate for multiple workholding positions.
