MIDACO AutoDoor Opener for CNC machine tools is a Universal Robots UR+ Certified Product

MIDACO’s AutoDoor Opener is Universal Robots+ Certified for Collaborative Automation on your Machine Tool

Midaco AutoDoor Opener on VMC

MIDACO’s AutoDoor Opener system has been certified by Universal Robots as a UR+ Product, which will automatically open and close doors on CNC machining centers, allowing the UR Cobot to load and unload parts more efficiently. Reduce wear on your Cobot and minimize idle machining time by eliminating the need for the Cobot to handle doors in between cycles.

AutoDoor Openers are built specifically for your CNC and include mounting hardware and the UR Cap to simplify the interfacing task. Your UR Cobot will command the open/close of the CNC door for loading parts. Door will automatically reverse if met with any resistance or an obstruction during closing. Add a MIDACO AutoDoor Opener to your machining process and increase productivity with UR collaborative automation solutions.

How Does It Work?

The AutoDoor System comes with its own controller as well as I/O to the UR Controller.  After setting up the I/O assignments in the Midaco URCap the robot will be able to command the CNC door open or closed and automatically wait for confirmation that the movement was complete.


Safety Sensor

A safety sensing edge is installed on the machine door in order to stop and reverse the door if an obstruction is detected. The sensing edge signal is also sent to the UR controller to stop the program until the obstruction can be cleared.
