Automatic Multi-Pallet Changer for 5-Axis and Standard VMCs



Midaco Corporation has developed an automatic multi-pallet changer for 5-axis and standard VMCs. It can load and unload 19 aluminum pallets, one at a time, on any new or existing machine. Midaco's new system is ideal for lights-out manufacturing by changing parts while the machining center runs unattended overnight.

The servo-driven automatic multi-pallet changer includes 19 aluminum pallets 10" (245 mm) diameter and 1.25" (31.75 mm) thick. Each pallet's weight capacity is 75 lbs. (34.05 kg). Hardened and ground locating pins provide +/- .0001" (.0025 mm) repeatability and the pallet changer integrates with the machine using M-functions. The pallet changer is equipped with a dual air-blast for chip removal. The cast iron receiver, which does not require pneumatics or hydraulics, mounts directly onto the machining center table. The full CE enclosure has two drop-down door loading stations (one on each side of the machine) and ensures that a pallet change will not occur if doors are opened.
