The Droop + Rein FOGS HD high-gantry machine from Starrag Technology was designed to address one of its customer’s need for a machine capable of precisely processing large, heavy parts, such as vehicle body exteriors, in a clamping device. The machine is available in X-, Y- and Z-axis travels ranging from 3,000 × 3,000 × 1,500 mm to 31,000 × 6,000 × 2,500 mm, along with torque ranging from 2,400 to 7,500 Nm. The company says that the machine can finish workpieces as much as 30 percent faster and more economically than a portal machine. It also enables runtime-parallel setup.

The company also offers the Droop + Rein FOGS NEO high-speed machining center, which features a new milling unit and a modified C axis that can efficiently produce precisely machined parts.
