TE-CO & Raptor Workholding are a preferred supplier for Travers Tool, providing not just high-quality products, but also outstanding support. The TE-CO & Raptor Team are consistently responsive, helpful, and a pleasure to work with.

Travers Tool Flushing, New York

We produce our uprights and all of our suspension components in-house. So having access to high-quality CNC workholding solutions is really important to our team. Without TE-CO, our members wouldn’t be able to get the experiences that they do manufacturing products and taking a component from design all the way through manufacturing.

Alexander Hargett, President Ohio State’s Formula Buckeyes Team

Before investing in the Raptor workholding system from TE-CO, we lacked the ability to use the same style dovetail holder in different machines and move parts around without worry. The Raptor dovetail holders securely hold even very complex parts without failure and we are quite impressed with its rigidity and accuracy. Furthermore, it has a bolt pattern that matches our pallets so there’s no need to create adapter plates or design and develop special fixturing. Perhaps best of all, the Raptor’s lower initial cost compared to other solutions paid for itself within the first few jobs we did. It’s been a very positive experience overall.

Mathew Pauley, Machine Shop Manager Penske Racing Shocks

The single station vises were great vises to get started with and continue to be useful on low volume work. Very affordable, easy to use and bulletproof. They did everything I needed in a high-mix, low volume environment.

And, the 6-inch Toolex vises have been a complete game changer with some of our higher volume work. I am getting 4- to 8-times the through put on the machine depending on the setup. They are extremely rigid and quick-change jaws have been awesome to work with. The chip covers also work extremely well at keeping things clean and preventing small chips from building up in the vises.
