ADVANTAGE Calibration sleeve

ADVANTAGE Calibration sleeve

THE CENTERPIECE OF THE AUTOMATED DIMENSIONAL CHANGE.

A dimensional change used to require a lot of time and effort, but fully automated it is barely noticeable nowadays. Centerpiece of the automated dimensional change is the ADVANTAGE calibration sleeve with a setting range of 1:1.8. This means that all dimensions and their pressure classes can be produced with the same extrusion die, continuously and fast. Both the inlet and the calibration cage are adjustable by synchronised motors to any diameter within the setting range. Diagonal circumferential bands create a tubular body with a perfectly round inner contour in order to obtain a homogeneous and streakless pipe surface. The ADVANTAGE XXL series covers pipe dimensions up to 1000 mm.

BENEFITS

  • Increased capacity due to the absence of setup time or start-up time
  • Reduced scrap during start-up
  • Automated change of dimensions within the setting range
  • Greater degree of flexibility resulting from a more easy production program
  • Higher productivity due to the absence of investments in dimensional equipment for calibration, pipe support and seals
  • Reduced working capital in the storage area
  • Immense increase in efficiency
