    Midaco Pallet Changer Systems Increase Existing VMC Productivity by 50%-60% 

    You’ve invested in top-of-the-line machinery and your machine shop is cranking out parts to meet your customers’ demands. Your machining center is a heavy duty, metal cutting beast and it was built to work for YOU! 1st shift, 2nd shift, you may even have a 3rd shift running, or you’d like to have “lights out” production. Your VMC needs to accommodate a high mix of low volume (HMLV) job runs without wasting time on part change over. With a MIDACO Pallet System you can change parts OUTSIDE of your machine, swap out pallets in seconds and Keep Your Spindle Running!

    In business since 1969, MIDACO CORPORATION of Elk Grove Village, Illinois USA, manufactures Pallet Changers which adapt to Vertical Machining Centers and Bridge Mills with travels from 12.75” x 10.5” up to 190” x 72” and a 32,000 lb capacity. Automatic Pallet Changers are servo driven and are designed to offer a fast pallet change time. Depending on the part size and weight, a pallet change can be as little as 6 seconds to just a few minutes on large part Bridge Mills.

    Load parts onto the Pallet Changer externally while your machining center is cutting. MIDACO's shuttle system is integrated with your VMC’s control panel to automatically switch pallets onto a receiver mounted directly to the machine table. You can attend to other tasks as the pallet changer switches out the next batch of parts in seconds, virtually eliminating your spindle idle time. Return to your machine to load the next batch of parts WHILE your VMC is working for YOU!

    A MIDACO Pallet Changer is Your Solution for Efficient High Mix Low Volume Job Runs

    Today’s marketplace is causing companies to experience a high mix of low volume job runs.  These short run jobs cause significant spindle downtime due to fixture change over. 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 $75.00 per hour this down time can add up to over $56,000.00 of lost profit per year, per each machine owned. MIDACO pallet changers are a solution to eliminate unnecessary spindle downtime and rescue lost profit. Adding a MIDACO Pallet Changer to your existing machine will increase productivity by 50-60% or more, helping you get the most out of your machine tool investment. Explore how a MIDACO Pallet Changer System can increase your overall gains with this convenient Payback Calculator.

    MIDACO Automatic Pallet Systems are easily installed on the right side or the left side (or both sides for dual shuttle systems) of a new or existing machining center. In addition to Automatic and Manual Pallet Changers, MIDACO has Automatic Multi-Pallet Changers for 5-Axis machining, Trunnion systems for 4th axis machining on your VMC (turning your vertical into a horizontal without the need for cable management), Manual “Lift Off” Pallet Systems and chip/coolant cleaning accessories to maximize time spent actually machining your parts. Other products include Automatic Door Openers and Robot Access Doors for robot loading applications and any enclosed machine.

    Application Engineers are available to help select the right pallet changer model to increase your output.  Whether you machine lot sizes in the 1000’s or doing small lot prototype work, MIDACO has the solution to eliminate unnecessary SPINDLE downtime.
