An adjustable calibrator is available in a new larger size from Inoex GmbH in Germany (U.S. office in Lancaster, Pa.). The Advantage Sleeve can now accommodate pipe diameters up to 1200 mm, vs. up to 400 mm before. Advantage calibrators have a motorized extendable spiral, which is at its maximum diameter in retracted position and gets smaller as it’s extended. The large Sleeves are being used with Inoex’s first commercial Maxflexx adjustable forming chambers, which redirect melt from the existing die gap into different pipe diameters. Inoex introduced a prototype of Maxflexx at the K 2007 show in Germany. (717) 672-0870 • www.inoex.com
