Rafter Equipment Corporation has expanded its in-house manufacturing capabilities with the addition of another machining center. The new machine is a Mazak INTEGREX 200SY 6-axis turning mill center with sub-spindle.

The main goal of this machine is to produce more parts in-house for both quality and delivery control improvements. The machine has dual, opposed powered chucks with a live milling tool for true "done in one" manufacturing capability. The addition again reinforces the company's commitment to the "Made in USA" philosophy that is still important to its customers. This machine marks the second one added by the company in the last year. It is planned to be fully operational by the end of May.

Rafter Equipment Corporation manufactures tube and pipe mills, roll forming machines, cutoff machines, auxiliary and other related tube and pipe mill machinery. Additional services include rebuilding and upgrading mill equipment. Originally started in 1917, the Rafter name is known for reliable, high-quality tube mill and roll forming equipment.
