Automatic Door Openers Add Protection And Productivity To Existing Machinery
NEW BERLIN, Wisconsin-February 5, 2004 .ATD Automatic Door Openers protect operators from injury and help maintain productivity by automatically opening and closing machine tool doors. The only automatic door opening system specifically designed for field retrofit on existing machinery, ATD openers are a practical, cost-effective solution for companies that machine medium to high part volumes.

The ATD openers incorporate a pre-programmed control module that is easy to use. Several input and output commands are available, and they can be wired into the machine's controller to close the door, or a simple on-off circuit can be used. The system also can feed back key out puts and messages to the machine controller. Its self-contained design makes installation quick, easy and cost-effective.
