996 Door Machine

  • This prehung door machine is comprised of tried and true technology that is 35 years in the making.
  • The 996-TS Door Machine has the ability to route all 4 hinges and the jamb on an 8 foot door, bore the lock or deadbolt at 2-3/8″ or 2-3/4″ backset and drill and mortise the latch at almost any location.
  • The door drilling locations can be set differently for the left and right hand door if desired.
  • A unique feature of this door machine is the ability to prep the strike jamb for lock bore or deadbolt locations.
  • The 996-TS uses the same operator to do all these tasks greatly reducing total man-hours invested in each door while eliminating double handling them and improving logistics.
  • This door machine is coming equipped with more standard options than any other prehung door equipment in the industry.
  • It comes with dust collection attachments on every cutting part of the equipment.
  • It also has a system called the Automatic Door Positioner (ADP) which gives the door machine operator more freedom not having to touch the door at all.
  • The 996-TS is also equipped with a high quality large touch screen.
  • This gives the door machine operator a quick and easy avenue to select the size of the door, the size of the hinge, the location of the deadbolt or lockbore, and an easy, sure way to turn features on and off.
  • All of these can be done either in English or in Spanish for the bilingual areas of the world.
  • The 996-TS Prehung Door Machine also has the ability to do self diagnostics with easy to understand directions to keep it trouble free.
