The Benefits of Automatic Multi-Pallet Changing
lights-out manufacturing with multiple pallets automatically being changed using multiple pallet carts without an operator
high spindle up-time with parts being loaded/offloaded on one pallet while machining a part on another pallet at the same time
The Midaco Automatic Pallet-Cart Changer System includes: 1 – APCC15 Shuttle and Automatic Door (retrofit to the machining centre) 1 – Cast Iron Receiver Base, 150 lb. capacity (with weight evenly distributed) 2 – 15” (381 mm) dia. x 1.25” (31.75 mm) thick Cast Aluminum Pallets 1 – Pallet Cart with interlocking T-pins (holds 2 pallets) 1 - CE Light Curtain package with shuttle guarding via a light emitter, mirrors and sensors
the receiver with dimensional drawing:
The pallet receiver is mechanical and actuated by the pallet transfer arm so no air or hydraulics are required to operate this pallet clamping system.
Work NON-STOP on 5-Axis Machining Centres The Automatic Pallet-Cart Changer allows for uninterrupted pallet transfer with MIDACO’s train cart* system (patent pending). Each cart holds two (2) pallets and connects to additional carts allowing for continuous and uninterrupted part transfer in and out of the machine tool. The operator can load a train of carts* to run while they attend to other tasks or go "lights-out".
Easily load and unload pallets onto carts without obstruction.
Interlocked pallet carts are mobilized through the shuttle system on casters allowing the shuttle arm to continuously feed pallets into the 5-Axis machining center.
Once a cart is pushed through the other side, the operator can easily load new pallets and change parts while the spindle is cutting.
A completed pallet cart can be removed by unlocking the T-pins and rolled to a different location or to the opposite end of the train to keep production going.
Depending on programming, after the full “pallet cart train” passes through the shuttle, the process repeats sending carts back in the opposite direction.
