Pallet Changers Adapt to Any Size Machining Center



Midaco Corporation manufactures pallet changers that adapt to most machining centers with travels from 12.75" x 10.5" up to 160" x 88". These systems are designed to reduce spindle downtime related to part loading and fixture changeover. The automatic pallet changers are servo driven and are designed to offer a fast pallet change time.

"Today's marketplace is causing some companies to experience smaller lot sizes," said a company spokesperson. "These short run jobs can cause significant spindle downtime due to fixture changeover. When combined with part loading, first article inspection and emergency job interruption tasks, experts estimate that today's average machining center is idle up to 70% of the time. At a conservative shop rate of $75 per hour, this down time can add up to over $56,000 of lost profit per year, per each machine owned. Midaco pallet changers are a simple way to eliminate unnecessary spindle downtime and rescue lost profit."

Once a pallet or load of parts is complete, the next pallet or job is transferred into the machine in seconds. Because all part loading and job set-up tasks are performed offline (without the operator leaning into the machine), both productivity and ergonomics is maximized. Midaco automatic pallet systems can be installed on the right or left side, or sometimes both sides, of a new or existing machining.
