The performance and value of Davis-Standard’s extrusion equipment will be on display at booth #455 at PLASTIMAGEN in Mexico City, November 18-21. This is an important show for Davis-Standard as the company continues to expand its reach throughout Mexico, offering its Global Advantage™ through innovation, support and technology. During the show, Davis-Standard will promote its aftermarket capabilities and new technology in blown film, cast film, extrusion coating, pipe, profile and tubing and sheet. Following are highlights:
Davis-Standard and Jinming Alliance – Davis-Standard and Jinming of China have allied to offer customers a wider range of best-in-class blown film machinery. As well respected industry leaders in blown film, this alliance provides customers with performance, quality, service and support for the best possible return on investment. Customers can design a line with Davis-Standard equipment, Jinming equipment or a combination of both to address application requirements and cost efficiency.
dsX s-tretch™ Cast Film Line – This is the first cast film line of its kind, providing an alternative to pre-stretching techniques traditionally done on blown film lines. Processors can take advantage of thinner films, higher line speeds and improved film strength. From a cost and environmental standpoint, benefits include consistently high-quality pre-stretch film produced with greater efficiency and reduced waste via coreless winding. The line is equipped to support a range of resins and applications at web widths from 775 to 1550mm (30 to 45 inches). For added efficiency, it is pre-configured for availability within six months of order to acceptance.
dsX flex-pack™ Extrusion Coating Line – This line supports cost-sensitive flexible packaging applications. It is pre-configured to merge customer demand with the best components in the industry for better end-product quality, greater uptime and productivity, reduced waste and production costs, and application versatility. It is also engineered with proven components and an adaptable machine configuration, making it ideal for converters, printing companies, multinational companies and start-ups.
New Lab Line – To support proof-of-concept development of small, tight tolerance tubing used in medical applications, Davis-Standard installed a medical lab line in a dedicated, climate-controlled area at its technical facility in Pawcatuck, Conn. The line features two direct drive interchangeable-barrel MEDD extruders in 1-inch (25mm) and ¾-inch (19mm) 24:1 L/D sizes, enabling a full range of product development opportunities. The MEDD is Davis-Standard’s premier compact extruder optimized for clean room environments with efficient operation and a replaceable feed section liner.
Super Blue® Extruder – Celebrating 10 years of market excellence, Davis-Standard’s Super Blue extruder continues to impress processors in the pipe and profile and sheet markets. It is designed for performance, cost-efficiency and a fast delivery, and available in sizes ranging from 2 inches (50mm) to 3.5- inches (90mm) with a 24:1 L/D ratio. Design advantages include a rigid base with structural steel construction; a wear-resistant bimetallic barrel; a modular inverted-L style control panel; and gear reducer with a heavy-wall, two-piece iron housing and single helical gearing. It is available with a range of DSB® barrier screw designs and Davis-Standard control systems.
