Davis-Standard to Feature Running FEP Tube Line at MD&M West


Live demonstrations of Davis-Standard’s tight tolerance medical tubing capabilities will be on display during MD&M West in Anaheim, California, February 7th– 9th, 2017, in booth 3939. The medical tubing line will be producing FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene) tubing used in many medical applications for its lubricity and biocompatibility. It will also feature Davis-Standard’s signature MEDD (Medical Extruder Direct Drive) extruder. The MEDD extruder utilizes direct drive technology for more efficient operation as well as greater materials flexibility, a replaceable feed section liner, interchangeable barrel assembly and a Windows® PLC control system.

Medical tubing continues to be an area of significant growth for Davis-Standard. To support customer profitability, Davis-Standard has a medical lab line in a cleanroom environment at its Technical Center in Pawcatuck, Connecticut. This line features 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 is extremely versatile and set up to run multiple resins. It also incorporates Davis-Standard’s patented Alternate Polymer® technology with all components monitored and controlled by the EPIC III® control system.
