With Midaco's Hydraulic Docking System on a Midaco Automatic Pallet Changer, fixtures and vises are automatically clamped and unclamped on the pallet and sent into the machining center without hoses.
The docking system is an ideal workholding solution for unattended robot/cobot applications
When new parts are put onto the pallet, the Hydraulic Docking System locks fixtures or vises into place and the pallet enters the machining center without the need for hose management.
Clamping fixtures or vises will stay charged on the pallet without hose while in the machining center.
When a pallet comes out of the machining center, it locks back into the Hydraulic Docking Station and automatically releases fixtures or vises allowing parts to be quickly replaced.
