India has been an emerging and successful market for Davis-Standard over the past 10 years. The company is pleased to have a reputable and growing client base in the region, specifically in the converting and medical extrusion sectors. Davis-Standard has addressed the need for high-value equipment by developing a new line of pre-engineered systems for converting and medical applications. Named the dsX™ series, these systems have been well received in India, offering cost-effective, high productivity packages supported by regional engineering and service teams. Three popular dsX™ systems include the dsX flex-pack™ for extrusion coating, the dsX s-tretch™ for cast film, and the dsX med-tube™ for medical tubing. Following is a summary of each.

  • The dsX flex-pack™ is a pre-engineered solution for extrusion coating applications. It is designed for cost-sensitive flexible packaging requiring fast and reliable production. It features an adaptable machine configuration to support converters, printing companies, multinational companies and start-ups. Key advantages include consistently high product quality, greater uptime and productivity, reduced waste and production costs, and application versatility for new business development.


  • As the first cast film line of its kind, the dsX s-tretch™ is an efficient and reliable alternative to pre-stretching techniques traditionally done off-line or on blown film lines. Integrated technology eliminates the need for traditional pre-stretching methods, resulting in thinner films, higher line speeds and improved film strength. This system is competitively priced for a fast return on investment, and offers advantages such as coreless winding, a two-meter design for a smaller footprint, and availability within six months of order to acceptance.


  • Based on Davis-Standard’s widely used medical tubing systems, the dsX med-tube™ is an ultra-compact system optimized for value and versatility. It has a smaller footprint for clean rooms, a language-specific control system, and a fast delivery. A unique co-extruder arrangement allows for processing materials that range from polypropylene (PP) to fluorinated ethylene polypropylene (FEP) through a simple feedscrew change. Options are available for single lumen, multi-lumen, IV catheter, corrugated drainage, integrated bump tubing and multi-layer tubing.

Davis-Standard looks forward to sharing more about the dsX™ series as well as information on control systems, feedscrew developments and aftermarket services with customers during PlastIndia in the German Pavilion, Hall 8-E13.
