Davis-Standard to showcase extrusion technology

Davis-Standard, LLC will promote a variety of extrusion and converting technology at booth W-6144 during NPE2015. Extrusion solutions geared toward energy and cost efficiency, product versatility and maximum productivity will be on display. Davis-Standard’s exhibit includes a running profile line for producing 3D printing rod, direct drive extruder technology, an XP Express roll stand, aftermarket services and control systems. Davis-Standard personnel will also be promoting the company’s new line of dsX high-value equipment for converting and medical applications. Following are highlights:

• Aftermarket capabilities – Davis-Standard has one of the industry’s most extensive menus of feedscrews, spare parts, and rebuilds for controls, gearboxes and extruders. Several feedscrew designs along with a CMR controls upgrade and a rebuilt Thermatic extruder will show the advantages of these capabilities.

• A running profile rod line for 3D printing – In sync with NPE’s focus on 3D technology, Davis-Standard’s line will produce ABS 3D printer rod. The rod will then be used to show how 3D printing is gaining traction as a quick and inexpensive way to make prototypes.

• Direct drive extruder with energy efficient technology – Direct drive technology uses a permanent magnet synchronous motor and an energy efficient heater and screw design. Davis-Standard will demonstrate how this results in operational efficiency.

• MEDD extruder with DS-eVue controls – This compact extruder for medical tubing features a direct drive motor, linear movement, replaceable feed section liner, and interchangeable barrel assemblies. It will be shown with the DS-eVue Windows-based mid-range controller.

• Super Blue Extruder – As Davis-Standard’s most popular extruder model, the Super Blue illustrates benefits of a fast delivery, affordability, a rugged design and energy efficiency.

• XP Express PS Series roll stand – This roll stand model is built for the packaging industry. It incorporates proven technical features for direct extrusion, in-line thermoforming, or the production of roll stock for subsequent off-line thermoforming.

• Ram stuffer feed section assembly – The ram stuffer feed section will be shown at the ADG Solutions booth, # W6754. This assembly is ideal for processing irregular shaped feedstock to be processed at high output rates.

• dsX technology – This new product line for blown film, cast film, extrusion coating and medical tubing applications offers cost-effective, highly engineered packages supported by regional engineering and service teams.

• EPIC III, Integrator PRO and DS-tablet – Davis-Standard offers user-friendly control systems for every extrusion and converting process and budget.
