Rafter Equipment Corporation has shipped an RT-4000S single-sided turkshead straightener with 2-axis motorized adjustments to a major North American heavy-wall tube producer.

The turkshead is capable of straightening up to 3.500" OD x 0.300" wall (88.9mm OD x 7.6mm wall) tubing. It includes motorized up/down and left/right adjustment so that tube straightness can be controlled from a remote downstream position using a simple joystick device.

Linear displacement transducers (LDTs) indicate movement and position for optimum straightness control on the included remote operator's console.

The turkshead includes a removable faceplate design that allows for the roll tooling to be exchanged offline while laying down. A second faceplate was included for enhanced quick-change capabilities.

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 mill refurbishing, design engineering, and contract manufacturing. Originally started in 1917, the Rafter name is known for reliable, high-quality tube mill and roll forming equipment.
