Davis-Standard, LLC will exhibit the depth of its Global Advantage™ in extrusion and converting technology during K 2016 in Düsseldorf in Hall 16, Booth A43. Technology being shown includes examples of extruder, feedscrew, die, unwind, and control system advancements as well as the company’s innovative dsX™ technology and extensive aftermarket capabilities. As an added benefit, Davis-Standard’s team will host visitors at ER-WE-PA’s Erkrath facility for equipment demonstrations. Following are highlights from Davis-Standard’s K display:
Extruder with QSE Adapter – This 3.5-inch (90mm) extruder has preferred features such as computer-designed feedscrews, electrical barrel heating with air-cooling for each zone, and simplified electrical installation. Mounted on the extruder will be a QSE (Quick Screw Exchange) adapter for fast screw changes without disturbing the downstream melt path.
High Speed Film & Foil Unwind – Designed for thin substrates, this two-position turret unwind is designed for an 800 meter-per-minute splice speed for sensitive webs such as aluminum foil at 6 µm. Unique splice unit controls and safety standards create excellent reliability for high-speed splicing of complex webs.
Feedscrew and Die Displays – Davis-Standard is a global leader in feedscrews and die designs for improved processing efficiency. Multiple feedscrew designs and finishes will be shown in the booth at the K Show, as well as a seven-layer die stand from Davis-Standard’s Gloucester Engineering product line. Also being promoted will be the new die rebuild services offered by Davis-Standard Limited in the United Kingdom.
