HARP Series

Machining Centers for Long & Narrow Parts

The HARP Series, specifically designed for processing High Aspect Ratio Parts (long & narrow parts), is typically customized with Clamping Fixtures and Spindle Configurations specific to the parts being manufactured. With the ability to operate with up to four (4) independently and simultaneously controlled cutting heads, the HARP machines increase throughput of up to 10 times compared to traditional CNC machines.  In the door & window industry HARP machines can be found producing over 1,600 door jambs per 8-hour shift with fully automated load/unload systems.
