Abstract. The author of this paper presented the ideas and assumptions with regard to manufacturing and application of a new metal expansion joints type. The manufacturing technology based on a hybrid mechanically assisted laser forming method was briefly discussed. The exculpation for the development of this expansion joints type and their effect on the torques and distortions compensation occurring in industrial pipelines installations was discussed as well. Furthermore, the preliminary experimenter’s research results about manufacturing of this expansion joints type were presented as well.
