  • Publication number: 20020043089
    Abstract: In a method of making a pipe of different wall thickness, a mandrel with at least one outer recessed axial section is inserted into a tubular blank. Subsequently a drawing die, having an inner diameter smaller than an outer diameter of the tubular blank, is pushed over the tubular blank while the pipe is held in place with respect to the mandrel in drawing direction, thereby pressing a wall portion of the blank into the recessed axial section of the die to form a pipe with a wall portion of greater wall thickness. As the mandrel is then withdrawn from the pipe, the wall portion of greater wall thickness of the pipe is pressed radially outwards.
