Maillefer's patented quick colour change system, X-flow, allows very fast insulation and striping color changes without stopping the production line. The color change system automatically changes the color with pre-defined lengths, which are determined by the built-in production scheduler in the line control.
With the X-Flow quick color change system there is no need to stop the line for insulation color changes. This helps improve your line productivity and it provides substantial cost savings, due to the reduced scrap rate.

Since two decades, Maillefer has been providing production systems for manufacturing multi-layer composite pipe with diameters ranging from 14 to 32 mm and from 16 to 63 mm. Today, our two model lines, the PCL32 and PCL63 that cover the two size ranges have evolved much. We are closer to 60 m/min, which first presented serious challenges to polymer and aluminum tape suppliers. Read more
