The principle behind its pallet changers is described by Midaco as simple. Instead of stopping a machine to load and unload parts, the systems from the Chicago-based company provide an accurate and reliable method of loading and unloading one pallet whilst another is being machined. The manufacturers point out that this is not a new concept, but they are still surprised how many companies waste valuable time in production and how much potential for savings exists in this area. The exhibitors produce CNC machining centers, machine tool accessories and safety products for bench and pedestal grinders. The products are said to be designed with the specific objective of saving production time, increasing output power, and making manufacturing firms more profitable and more competitive.
