Davis-Standard is eager to greet customers and potential customers at booth #2.2E31 during Chinaplas in Guangzhou, May 20-23. The company will promote its dsX™ product line including cast film, medical tubing, and packaging technology, and will have representatives present from Asia and its facility in Suzhou, China. Opening the facility in Suzhou has given Davis-Standard a stronger regional presence with localized service and manufacturing to support extrusion and converting applications. The company has seen an uptick in sales throughout the Asian region for feedscrews, control systems, high-speed FPVC systems for medical tubing, and the dsX product line for flexible packaging and medical applications. In fact, Davis-Standard recently sold a dsX flex-pack™, the first of its kind in Asia, and demand for the dsX series continues to grow.
“With the increased demand in Asia as well as our continued progress at our Suzhou facility, we anticipate a very busy Chinaplas show.” said Sekeran Muragaiah, Davis-Standard Vice President of Business Development, Asia. “We just recently hosted a successful medical tubing trial and demonstration at our Suzhou laboratory, and customers appreciate our regional presence. Chinaplas is Asia’s largest plastics and rubber exhibition, so we look forward to participating and sharing new developments.”
During Chinaplas, Davis-Standard will introduce its new dsX s-tretch™ line for cast film. This line is the first in-line pre-stretch cast film line of its kind enabling processors to produce stronger, thinner film with greater efficiency. Advantages include a comprehensive, flexible and pre-configured design, and a smaller footprint at two meters wide to simplify installation start-up. This line is capable of processing ultra thin films at speeds up to 1,000 meters per minute.
With the addition of the dsX s-tretch™, Davis-Standard augments its existing dsX™ technology for medical tubing, extrusion coating, and blown film. The dsX™ machines have been well received in Asia due to a competitive advantage in price, performance and delivery. Demand in Asia has been especially strong for the dsX med-tube™ and dsX flex-pack™ due to continued growth medical tubing and flexible packaging applications.
