The IntelliChange concept for fast dimensional alterations of pipe sizes from Cincinnati Extrusion (Vienna, Austria) has been increased to three ranges, from 32-160 mm, 32-250 mm, or 63-400 mm. The system is said to provide precise adjustment of outer diameter/wall thickness, thereby saving polymer. An average size change takes about 15 minutes compared to up to 3.5 hours using a standard pipe extrusion line, says the company.

Pipe dimension changes eased

(Vienna, Austria) has been increased to three ranges, from 32-160 mm, 32-250 mm, or 63-400 mm. The system is said to provide precise adjustment of outer diameter/wall thickness, thereby saving polymer. An average size change takes about 15 minutes compared to up to 3.5 hours using a standard pipe extrusion line, says the company. Using the IntelliChange system, only about 9m of production waste (corresponding to 94.5 kg) is extruded compared to up to three times the line length needed until production meets quality standards, which Cincinnati Extrusion calculates at about 1260 kg of material waste.
