The Extraction Machine is used separate the mandrel from the pipe. To cover the full production range, two different systems are used. Up to ND 900, pipe is extracted from the mandrel, whilst from ND 1000 up to ND 2000 mandrel is extracted out of the pipe. In both cases, initially the pipe is held by locking arms, while the mandrel is pulled by an hydraulic cylinder to be released. The full extraction of either the pipe or the mandrel is performed by an hydraulic winch using steel cable. During extraction, the pipe and mandrel remain supported by adjustable lifting tables, to cover full range of pipe diameters.
