Strongsville, Ohio, USA, February 27, 2017 – Rafter Equipment Corporation has shipped a new RT-2000S strip entry table, HFI weld squeeze box, and double-sided turkshead straightener to a North American tube producer. The equipment will replace equipment on a Yoder Manufacturing QVW-250 tube mill that was not robust enough for the tubular products being produced.
Strongsville, Ohio, USA, February 3, 2017 – Rafter Equipment Corporation has shipped an RT-2500 Tandem HFI Weld Bead Upset Trimmer to a major North American custom roll form parts producer. The equipment includes a cam actuated quick-lift feature to raise and lower the trimming tool automatically when the mill stops or manually when a coil end joint passes underneath. The use of a cam motion locks the tool in the down position mechanically. It also returns the tool to the preset trimming position automatically after it has been raised. The tandem tool arrangement allows for the continued production after the first tool becomes dull or damaged.
