Davis-Standard to Feature Running FEP Tube Line at MD&M West

 

Live demonstrations of Davis-Standard’s tight tolerance medical tubing capabilities will be on display during MD&M West in Anaheim, California, February 7th- 9th, 2017, in booth 3939. The medical tubing line will be producing FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene) tubing used in many medical applications for its lubricity and biocompatibility.  It will also feature Davis-Standard’s signature MEDD (Medical Extruder Direct Drive) extruder. The MEDD extruder utilizes direct drive technology for more efficient operation as well as greater materials flexibility, a replaceable feed section liner, interchangeable barrel assembly and a Windows® PLC control system.  

 

Medical tubing continues to be an area of significant growth for Davis-Standard. To support customer profitability, Davis-Standard has a medical lab line in a cleanroom environment at its Technical Center in Pawcatuck, Connecticut. This line features two MEDD extruders and associated downstream equipment located in a climate-controlled “clean room” environment. Customers are able to test new resins, make parts for proof-of-concept, and conduct downstream R&D prior to making large capital equipment investments. The line is extremely versatile and set up to run multiple resins. It also incorporates Davis-Standard’s patented Alternate Polymer® technology with all components monitored and controlled by the EPIC III® control system.
