AWS Schäfer offers pipe-calibration machines for bi-metal, cladded and plated pipes. Pipe production involves combining two different pipe materials - a ferritic outer pipe and an austenitic inner pipe - using internal pressure and a special tool. A closed tool is used to ensure that the pipes produced meet the highest possible requirements with regard to their diameter, circularity and straightness tolerances. This production process for mechanically plated pipes delivers clear cost advantages in comparison with the production of solid pipes or metallurgically plated pipes. The tried and trusted high-pressure forming centres at AWS Schäfer are also used for the calibration of ovalised pipes. At the same time, AWS Schäfer's pipe-calibration machines give you the option of carrying out pressure tests on the finished product directly after expansion, using the machine while the tool is open.
Pipe-calibration machines are suitable for manufacturing pipes for numerous applications:
Our range of services not only comprises individual machines and tools, but also complete production lines for the entire production process of bi-metal pipes - from planning of the production process through to the finished product.
Our HFC-type pipe-calibration machines are available in many versions:
