ETG signs up to Midaco pallet changers

Midaco Pallet Changers

A Midaco MF40L manual pallet changer

The Engineering Technology Group has further expanded its programme of machine tool automation and loading/unloading products with the addition of pallet changers supplied by the Midaco Corporation.

Since adding Halter robot loaders to its portfolio, ETG has experienced high levels of interest in automation and to complement its significant turnkey design and installation expertise it has now added pallet changing products.

Based in Chicago, USA, Midaco is an innovator in designing and manufacturing automatic and manual pallet change systems, robot loaders and other accessories for the metal cutting sector.  Its product range includes manual and automatic products that improve efficiency in all aspects of manufacturing including VMC, HMC, Drill/Tap and EDM machines.

Steve Brown, ETG’s Product Development Manager comments;  “manufacturers are always looking for cost effective methods of increasing productivity across their operations and pallet changers are an ideal solution to increase a machine’s output.

“Not only is a pallet change system suited for high production jobs, but it also eliminates machine downtime on small batch turnovers.  With the pallet change system the operator sets up and changes a pallet outside the machine without the machine sitting idle. A pre-programmed job can be ready to run in as little as 6.5 seconds – depending on the size of the system and load on the pallet,” he adds

Midaco offers manual, automatic and robotic pallet systems, all of which are ideal for O/E or retro-fit installation.  ETG is happy to discuss applications and make recommendations for new or existing applications and its engineering teams will complete all installation work.
