KraussMaffei in Germany (U.S. office in Florence, Ky.) is building a larger version of its QuickSwitch fully automatic, adjustable calibrator for pipe diameters from 250 to 450 mm OD. The prototype will be delivered in early 2009 to Valrom in Romania (a unit of Valsir in Italy) for coex pressure pipes for potable water, waste water, and natural gas. KM had to modify the basket design for the new size. Before now, the largest QuickSwitch was for 160 to 250 mm. (859) 283-0200 • www.kraussmaffei.com
