This is true, in fact Abertura started the trend off down here and
Sergio there has become quite an expert.  I have been working hard with
it at Casablanca on a few jobs that would have been impossible on any
other system.

Complete, Framestore and a few others.

Both Casablanca and Abertura here are using in conjunction with an
Arcas, but I have used in conjunction with daVincis in other parts of
the world.

Its probably closer to ESR than Power Windows.  The only other thing I
can say is that I am buying one with my own money for my new facility in
Chile.  Some people have told me that it has the same use as an anchor,
but then, so does a Henry if you can't drive it!
