Australia’s largest pipe manufacturer, Vinidex, still has a large stock of fixed calibrating sleeves in its tool store. If Engineering Manager Stephen Leggott has anything to say about it, however, they will soon be a thing of the past.
The future belongs to adjustable calibrating sleeves, and at Vinidex those calibrating sleeves are called RIVAL.“RIVAL’s calibrating sleeves mean our production is fast and efficient, and lead to huge savings in raw material costs.
The adjustable calibrating sleeve is extremely precise and can give the pipe the correct diameter in the shortest possible time.
That means less overweight and shorter payback time for the investment,” says Engineering Manager Stephen Leggott, Vinidex
