Strongsville, Ohio, USA, December 10, 2015 – Rafter Equipment Corporation has shipped yet another of the company's popular 3-roll HFI weld squeeze boxes to a major North American sprinkler pipe and mechanical tubing producer. As stated before, the newer design has become the choice replacement for heavy-duty applications where traditional "scroll chuck" weld box designs fail to perform.
As in other retrofit installations, this retrofit required custom design changes to accomodate the rather short passline height and small footprint on the existing Asian-made tube mill. This undersizing of the weld squeeze boxes has become a common theme among these foreign-made tube mills. Fortunately for our customers, Rafter can provide solutions to these problems.
Rafter Equipment Corporation is a manufacturer of tube mills, pipe mills, roll forming machines, cutoff machines, and other related tube and pipe mill machinery. Additional services include mill refurbishing, design engineering, and contract manufacturing.
