Company Profile

Raptor was born out of necessity.

Raptor was created by manufactures for manufacturers.  We recognize the challenges that manufacturing facilities are faced with, particularly with workholding devices. That is why we created these innovative products. Spend your time making parts, not figuring out how to hold them!

The RAPTOR dovetail product line is an INVESTMENT! The return on your investment is ten fold! Same Money...increase productivity ... increase employee enthusiasm...increase customer satisfaction.

Our dovetail workholding product allows for unprecedented access and clearance to all five sides of a workpiece and is designed to hold the fixture rigidly in place.

Raptor is Adaptable. Our workholding products can fit any machine and any solution. We have a variety of fixtures, Nests, rails adapters and risers built to attach directly to the most popular CNC machines.  Our product line is modular in design and that is one of the reasons why our products are affordable.  Multiple Raptors can be mounted to tombstones, Nests and base plates.  

Our dovetail cutters are available in variety of dovetails heights and diameters depending on your needs. Our dovetail cutters machine the flat on the dovetail edge of your workpiece in one pass. This prevents a sharp edge on the dovetail from pressing into the corner of the fixture.
