The tight tolerance tubing capabilities of Davis-Standard’s MEDD extruder will be on display at MD&M West in Anaheim, February 10, booth 1375. The MEDD (Medical Extruder Direct Drive) is Davis-Standard’s signature extruder for medical tubing with direct drive technology for more energy efficient operation. In addition to the direct drive advantages, the MEDD provides processors greater materials flexibility with 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 installed a medical lab line in a cleanroom environment at its Technical Center in Pawcatuck, Conn., last year. This line is engineered for tight tolerance tubing used in medical applications. 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 situated in a dedicated, climate-controlled area.
