Silicone Tubing

Davis-Standard has extensive process and extrusion expertise in the area of medical and industrial silicone tubing worldwide. We understand there is a difference between extruding an industrial fluid transfer tube and extruding an infantile catheter. Our engineers work with you to supply the correct customized equipment to meet your precise product requirements including horizontal or vertical extrusion, short-wave or medium-wave cure systems, custom designed dies and downstream equipment, or precision cutting and winding.

An example of our preferred extrusion technology in this area includes our DSR silicone extruder. Advantages include our patented pneumatic roll feed system to provide uniform, consistent feed rate, chrome plating and stainless steel contact surfaces for medical environments, available hinge-roll feed roll section for easy cleanout and compound changes, rugged Davis-Standard gearboxes, and proven feedscrew designs to maximize output and stability.
