Automatic Pallet Changer Can Quadruple Unattended Machining Time

Whether running high volume production of the same part or programming several different set-ups, MIDACO's Automatic Rotary 4-Pallet Changer will extend operator walk-away time and maximize productivity on your new or existing vertical mill with 4 pallets on 1 shuttle.

Manufacturers can save money by increasing spindle utilization during the machining process and quote more competitively.

All four pallets from either flip-panel station located on two sides of the shuttle can be conveniently accessed, and operators can easily load and unload parts onto pallets with a crane or robot without any overhead obstruction.

A full 360 degree rotation of the shuttle's pallet carrousel is attainable. Once a job cycle is complete, pallets will rotate automatically on the shuttle carrousel, ready and scheduled to feed your VMC for multiple hours of unattended machining.

Durable precision ground steel rails and hardened locating pins/bushings assure +/- 0.0001" (0.0025mm) repeatability.

The shuttle's servo drive transfers the next pallet onto the cast iron receiver mounted directly onto the machining center table with +/- 0.0001" (0.0025mm) repeatability.


The control panel is fully integrated with the VMC via M-codes.

Light Curtain: With 2-sided guarding via a light emitter, mirrors and sensors, a pallet change will not occur if the invisible light beams surrounding the shuttle system are breached.
