Rafter Equipment Corporation has received an order for a new RT-3000 tube mill from a major North American automotive tube producer. The mill will be capable of producing up to 5.000 OD x 0.188 wall round tubing. The mill is somewhat special in that it will produce tubing with t/D ratios from 1.5% to 6.0%.

The mill will include a Rafter/TAKECO strip entry system. This entry system includes a double-swivel uncoiler, peeler/hold-down, pinch/leveler, coil end joiner, and a vertical strip accumulator. The line is expected to be installed and commissioned in the first quarter of 2013.

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.
