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. The centerpiece of the ADVANTAGE 2.0 technology is the revised calibration sleeve. All dimensions from 75 to 630 mm and their corresponding pressure classes are infinitely and easily adjustable. The available extrusion die will continue to be use. 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 39.370''.
