Rafted mills give greater flexibility with facility to set rolls off line without stopping production. The ‘rafts’ are removed and replaced either by crane or forklift quickly, ensuring minimum downtime. Additional rafts can be added later for each product increasing output with the capability of “just in time” production.
6 station heavy duty rafted ‘Fence Pale′ mill, with individual gearbox drive at each pass. Part of a production line including post-pierce and ‘flying’ cut off with automated splay and stacker unit.
