Rafter Equipment Corporation has finished a new RT-2000S raft set and double-sided turkshead straightener for a North American tube producer. The equipment will replace older American Electric Fusion (AEF) tube mill equipment that is worn and has lived it's useful life.

The company reversed engineered the raft plates and drive shaft connections so that they would work with the existing equipment. The new driven and idle side roll stands will include updated quick-change features and be more robust than the ones they replace. The turkshead will offer the same improvements.

Rafter Equipment Corporation manufactures tube mills, pipe mills, roll forming machines, cutoff machines, 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.
