Rafter Equipment Corporation will introduce a new roll forming machine at the upcoming FABTECH Show in Chicago in November. Originally founded as a roll forming machine builder, the company is now known more for its tube mill machines. Although the current machine designs are used in roll forming applications, they are typically more than what is needed (i.e., overkill) for the roll forming industry.

In order to better meet the needs of today's roll former, a new machine design specific to the industry was necessary. The challenge for the company was to create a less costly design with modern quick-change capabilities while still maintaining high-quality construction and robust strength. The company will showcase a 2-pass roll stand assembly at the show. The stand will highlight a lower cost "rafted" machine design and an easily customized drive train arrangement.

Rafter Equipment Corporation manufactures tube mills, pipe mills, roll forming machines, cutoff machines, auxiliary and other related 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.
