IS McElroy looking to change the spacing to increase the amount of pipe remaining when 'facing to the stops'?

With F2620-11 longer heating cycles and larger beads are bringing jaws so close together that the bead is, in some instances rolling onto the jaw. Tjhis is particulary evident on the No14, No26 and 28 units.

Doug, I believe the minimum soak time only applies to pipes of OD 14" or larger. So the machines you mentioned should be unaffected.
