Davis-Standard’s Global Equipment Platform at Plastimagen Mexico®

Davis-Standard, LLC will promote the company’s full line of extrusion and converting technology during PLASTIMAGEN MÉXICO® in Mexico City, March 8 –11, 2022. Davis-Standard’s team will be available at booth #2256 to discuss a range of technologies, including the new DS Activ-Check, new CHP and SHO (Super High Output) extruder designs, the MEDD (Medical Extruder Direct Drive) extruder, film and sheet equipment, Maillefer pipe and tube solutions, and aftermarket capabilities. Davis-Standard supports a broad range of applications for customers in Mexico, Central America, South America and U.S., including agriculture, automotive, building and construction, consumer products, packaging, and medical markets. Following are technology highlights:

DS Activ-Check – Davis-Standard’s Industry 4.0 platform for continuous monitoring, preventative maintenance and mobile alerts. DS Activ-Check uses analytical tools based on long-term cloud data storage, along with process and equipment technology algorithms, to help management and production teams identify and improve product quality and line productivity.

SHO Extruder – As the latest addition to Davis-Standard’s groove feed product line, the SHO extruder delivers outputs 20 percent higher than existing groove feed models. Designed with a compact footprint, it is engineered with an improved feed section and high-performance, energy-efficient DSB® barrier screw. This is especially beneficial for high-viscosity HDPE applications such as pipe extrusion, where lower melt temperatures, reduced power consumption and improved energy efficiency are essential.

CHP Extruder – Davis-Standard’s new extruder offers a space-saving coextrusion retrofit for extrusion coating applications within the U.S. and Mexico. With a smaller footprint and lighter weight to accommodate existing carriage or platform structures, the CHP addresses profitability factors such as raw material loss, improved outputs, and application flexibility.

MEDD ExtruderThis compact extruder is built for cleanroom environments with a replaceable feed section liner and direct drive technology for greater efficiency and materials flexibility. Davis-Standard offers a high-tech melt pump system to maximize stability when processing sensitive materials.

Blown Film – Davis-Standard and Brampton Engineering supply extrusion systems for applications in high-barrier food packaging, agricultural films, geomembrane, stretch film, printing and laminating films, flexible packaging, collation shrink films, and stretch hooders. For films that require enhanced clarity and flexibility, Davis-Standard offers the Aquafrost® water-quench system. Other options include industry-leading Vector® air rings, DSB® feedscrew designs, Streamlined Coextrusion Die (SCD®), and Optiflow and Vertex dies, each designed to process specific films.

Cast Film – Davis-Standard supplies a broad range of solutions for cast films. The company’s modular stretch film line for high-grade film operations, CPP film, and high barrier films production include a compact machine arrangement, ease of operation and servicing, excellent profile control, consistent roll quality, and an intuitive control package. Davis-Standard has winders to accommodate the specific needs for application designed to simplify packing and future automation.

Sheet Extrusion – Davis-Standard supplies complete systems and components to the packaging and industrial sectors. One recent development is the DS-Helibar® extruder. This technology has been shown to increase extruder output rates while improving energy efficiency and reducing barrel and screw wear. Other advantages include lower start-up costs, shorter residence time, and the ability to process higher regrind levels. Davis-Standard also offers thermoforming equipment for food packaging applications through TSL (Thermoforming Systems LLC).

Davis-Standard also recently introduced the XP Express®– AGT (Active Gravity Touch) roll stand for the full range of sheet and cast applications. The roll stand is available in three options depending on requirements. Each has a fully automated multi-roll gap nip, individual roll speed and temperature control, enhanced heat transfer, and an adaptable pull-roll design. This is augmented by a four-point Y-axis and traverse X-axis control to further support operator functionality. In addition, uniform cooling on both sides, double polishing capabilities, reduced web stress, and consistent web orientation and thickness control promote high-quality, flat sheet with desired clarity.

Maillefer pipe and tube systems – Maillefer’s pipe and tube extrusion systems support markets encompassing medical, blown fiber micro duct, heating and plumbing, automotive, micro-drip irrigation, on- and off-shore flexibles, and other specialty and technical goods. These systems are engineered to provide value for multi-layer pipe constructions, including those used in blown fiber microduct applications such as FTTx data networks, heating and plumbing pipe, and multi-layer automotive tubing. This includes the use of recycled materials in eco-friendly pipe and tube products.

Aftermarket Capabilities – Davis-Standard’s ability to service equipment for nearly every extrusion and converting application, including non-Davis-Standard brands, is one of the company’s greatest advantages. This includes an extensive spare parts inventory, timely 24/7-customer service, global technical capabilities, and rebuild and retrofit services.
