Refurbished and upgraded T&H WU-20 Tube Mill

Rafter Equipment Corporation has shipped a refurbished Turek & Heller (T&H) model WU-20 tube mill to a North American producer of electrical conduit tube. The owner of the mill approached the company to rebuild the machine which had been sitting in their warehouse for several years.

In addition to the rebuild, the company made several upgrades to the mill. These included new idle side roll stands, single-point adjustments (SPA) for the top roll shafts on the driven roll stands, a new drive train necessary to achieve 1,000 FPM production speeds, and a new mill drive electrical package.

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.
