Strongsville, Ohio, USA, November 7, 2016 – Rafter Equipment Corporation has shipped three (3) RT-2500 single-sided turkshead straighteners each with 3-axis servo motorized adjustments to a major North American custom roll former of direct-welded profiles. These units included the raft sub-bases designed to fit the existing Dreistern roll forming machine.
The straighteners will be the customer's first use of turkshead roll-type straigheners. They will replace the existing block-type or barrel straightener commonly used in the roll forming industry. Rafter was chosen because of the company's proven, robust turkshead designs and experience with remote, motorized adjustments. The company's willingness and ability to custom engineer a retrofit solution also contributed to the decision.
