Davis-Standard Building All Blow Molder Accumulator Heads at Pawcatuck Facility


Davis-Standard is pleased to announce that all sizes of blow molding accumulator heads are now manufactured and assembled at its primary facility in Pawcatuck, Connecticut. Davis-Standard began moving blow molding head production to Pawcatuck in 2014 as part of an expansion of in-house manufacturing. Today, every accumulator head is manufactured in Pawcatuck, including a 75-pound head currently being engineered for a U.S.-based customer.

“With the design, assembly and testing of accumulator heads in-house, customers appreciate that we control the production and quality of the two most important blow molding components; the accumulator head and the extruder,” said Mark Panaro, Product Manager of Davis-Standard Blow Molding Systems. “We have always been discerning when it comes to quality, but this further strengthens our control. Our customers are seeing the results and they are pleased.”

Prior to moving production in-house, Davis-Standard contracted with local machine shop vendors. According to Panaro, about one-third of blow molding equipment manufacturers produce accumulator heads in-house. The move is part of Davis-Standard’s focus to continually improve value to the customer in terms of price, performance and delivery.

Davis-Standard’s accumulator head systems are known for shot-to-shot consistency, cycle-to-cycle precision and excellent parison control for both polyolefins and engineered thermoplastics. As an added benefit, Davis-Standard can upgrade and refurbish all makes and models of single screw continuous blow molding extruders. This includes replacement screws, process improvements, and mechanical, electrical and hydraulic upgrades.
