Davis-Standard to Feature High-value Innovations for Extrusion Coating, Cast Film, and Medical Tubing at K2013


Davis-Standard, a recognized global leader in high-performance converting and extrusion systems, will feature its recently-introduced dsX™ technology in Hall 16, booth #A43 during K 2013, October 16 – 23, including the high-value, pre-engineered dsX flex-pack™ extrusion coating line, the new ultra-compact dsX med-tube™ medical tubing system, and the unveiling of the innovative dsX s-tretch™ line for cast film. Davis-Standard is offering a conveniently-scheduled shuttle service to the company’s Erkrath facility where the new dsX flex-pack™ extrusion coating line and dsX s-tretch™ cast film line will be spotlighted.

The new dsX flex-pack™ extrusion coating line (patent pending) provides converters and printers with a pre-engineered system that will give them distinct advantages in the price-sensitive global flexible packaging market. The high-value system can be delivered in as little as six months and is available in two layouts to accommodate almost any plant space requirements. The dsX flex-pack™ provides customers with all the capabilities and flexibility needed to compete effectively in a variety of rapidly emerging application opportunities including: salted snack and noodle bags, toothpaste tubes, sachet packs personal care products, condiment packs and stand-up pouches. Advanced computer technology, standard on the dsX flex-pack™, continually adjusts the product profile for best performance and allows for remote access of the line for troubleshooting and updating over a secure internet connection.

The optimized dsX s-tretch™ pre-stretch cast film extrusion line is the first in-line pre-stretch system enabling customers to run thinner films at higher speeds, allowing stretch film providers to produce consistent, high-quality pre-stretch film with greater efficiency. The 2-meter wide line has the advantage of a lower footprint, yet allows for growth. The dsX s-tretch™ system is comprehensive yet flexible – its pre-engineered technology is available in as little as six months with both five and seven-layer options. The line will be offered with environmentally-friendly coreless technology in the future, reducing both material and disposable cost.

The ultra-compact dsX med-tube™ medical tubing system, a variation of Davis-Standard’s widely used medical tubing systems, has been optimized for both value and versatility. The dsX med-tube™ system offers a smaller footprint for clean rooms, language-specific control systems and fast delivery. A unique co-extruder arrangement allows for processing materials ranging from polypropylene (PP) to fluorinated ethylene polypropylene (FEP) by changing feedscrews. Systems are available for single lumen, multi-lumen, IV catheter, corrugated drainage, integrated bump tubing and multi-layer tubing.

Innovations Displayed at Erkrath Facility– Davis-Standard is offering shuttle service from Düsseldorf to the company’s facility in Erkrath (about 20 minutes away) for the display of the new dsX flex-pack™ and dsX s-tretch™ lines. The transportation schedule for this service will be available at the show.

The new dsX™ technology is representative of the many new innovations to be introduced as part of Davis-Standard’s Global Advantage initiative, helping customers gain a competitive edge by optimizing their ability to respond to the ever-changing needs of their markets. Davis-Standard has taken great care to merge its best technology into cost-effective, highly-engineered packages that are supported by regional engineering and service teams. Davis-Standard’s experts in extrusion and converting will be available to discuss these new offerings along with the company’s current technologically-advanced solutions to the global polymer and rubber processing industries, all with the goal of providing exceptional value for customers.
