QuickSwitch technology

High efficiency and flexibility

Krauss-Maffei's QuickSwitch extrusion system shortens dimension changes in PO pipe extrusion. The QuickSwitch system is designed for four diameter ranges: for 25 to 63 mm, 70 to 160 mm 160 to 250 mm and 280 - 500 mm. Depending on requirements and application, both single-layer and multilayer polyolefin pipe can be produced.

Minimal scrap when changing dimensions
Inline dimension change at the push of a button
Less costs, time and material when changing over to other dimensions
Quickly handle small batch sizes
