Rafter Equipment Corporation has once again expanded its in-house manufacturing capabilities with the addition of another CNC machining center.

The new machine is a Mazak 5-axis lathe which is larger than the previous 5-axis lathe commissioned just four months ago. This machine continues with the company's "One & Done" manufacturing philosophy that strives to reduce machine setup and operator handling times. ​

In addition, the expansion furthers our passionate desire to be Made in USA!

Rafter Equipment Corporation is a manufacturer of 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.
