Strongsville, Ohio, USA, November 18, 2015 – Rafter Equipment Corporation has shipped another of the company's popular 3-roll HFI weld squeeze boxes to a major North American automotive and mechanical tubing supplier. The relatively new design has become the choice replacement for heavy-duty applications where traditional "scroll chuck" weld box designs fail to perform. This particular unit included two design challenges. The first was making a unit that would fit into a relatively small space. The short 10" passline height (or metal line) and the limited footprint area on the existing Asian-made mill required a custom designed lower roll adjustment and main support frame.
Strongsville, Ohio, USA, November 2, 2015 – Rafter Equipment Corporation has completed a new RT-2000S HFI tube mill and has it is ready for shipment to a major North American aluminized carbon/stainless steel tube producer. The mill is designed to produce tubing from 0.500" OD x 0.038" wall minimum to 2.000" OD x 0.120" wall maximum.
