A new adjustable calibration sleeve from Inoex in Lancaster, Pa., can change pipe OD and wall thickness over the full range of pressure categories for one nominal pipe size without interrupting production. Called MaxFlexx, it also adjusts wall thickness to accommodate materials with different die swell. MaxFlexx is a byproduct of Inoex's Advantage calibration sleeve, launched in 2004 with an adjustable inlet size and ability to increase pipe OD by up to 100%. MaxFlexx, instead, has a static inlet size and can increase pipe OD by only 8%. MaxFlexx calibration sleeves start below $10,000 and can be built for any pipe diameter from 1.25 in. up to 16 in.
