How can we help you?

    • Die and Head Upgrades – We supply die and head upgrades for a variety of processes including crossheads for the wire and cable industry, in-line spiral dies for the pipe industry, and medical dies. Each head is engineered and manufactured by Davis-Standard to meet your process requirement.
    • Feedscrew Services for Replacement and Rebuilding – Our feedscrews range from 1/2-inch (20mm) to 12 inches (305mm) in diameter with various L/D. Our screw designs are recognized worldwide for superior performance and mixing qualities. For feedscrew rebuilds, we engineer the screw back to its original performance characteristics. We also polish and chrome plate our screws to accommodate food-grade PVC polishing or hard chrome for industrial requirements.
    • Gearcase Retrofit Package – We offer complete gearcase retrofits to ensure your line maintains optimal processing efficiency and high outputs.
    • Process Control Upgrades – Our process control upgrades and replacements include everything from discrete temperature control heat panels to full-featured EPIC III® control systems. Most panel replacements take less than a day.
    • L/D Conversions – A longer L/D adds versatility to expand capabilities. We have a variety of conversion packages to cost-effectively upgrade the L/D of an existing extruder.
    • Air-to-Water Conversion Packages – Water-cooled extruder conversions offer better temperature control than air-cooling when ambient temperature has no effect on the process. These packages are available for extruders from 1 ½-inch to 6 inches (40 to 150mm).
    • Internal Diameter Increase (IDI) Conversion – Increasing the extruder’s diameter can increase production capacity. For IDI conversions, our technicians replace the barrel, feed section, screw and breaker plate at your plant. Everything else remains the same.
    • Total Line Upgrades – When a full upgrade is needed – extruder through downstream equipment – we have the capabilities to provide a complete overhaul with a short turnaround. We will dismantle and rebuild your entire system at one of our facilities. We then test all components to ensure smooth installation.
