Davis-Standard will highlight the company’s latest medical tubing capabilities at booth #567 during MD&M East in New York City on June 14-16. Specifically, the company will promote its new MEDD Extruder (Medical Direct Drive Extruder) for tight tolerance tubing. Also, Davis-Standard will promote its medical tubing lab line and dedicated cleanroom located in its Technical Center in Pawcatuck, Conn. Medical tubing continues to be a growth area for Davis-Standard in the U.S. and abroad.
The MEDD offers processors greater materials flexibility in a compact design. It features a replaceable feed section liner, interchangeable barrel assembly and a Windows® based HMI & PLC control system. Davis-Standard has already sold several MEDD extruders to various medical tubing manufacturers and the machine has been very well received. The medical tubing lab line in the Pawcatuck facility includes 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 also incorporates Davis-Standard’s patented Alternate Polymer® technology with all components monitored and controlled by the EPIC III® control system.
