Davis-Standard will highlight the depth of its Global Advantage in extrusion and converting technology at K 2016.
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 will host visitors at ER-WE-PA’s Erkrath facility for equipment demonstrations.
The followings are highlights from Davis-Standard:
Extruder with QSE Adapter – This 90mm exrtruder 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 800mpm 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.
dsX Technology – This popular line of extrusion coating, cast film and blown film equipment offers processors advantages in price, performance and delivery. Each system is engineered for greater up-time, increased productivity and reduced waste, and backed by Davis-Standard’s 24/7 global support network.
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 advantages. This includes an extensive spare parts inventory, timely 24/7 customer service, global technical capabilities, rebuild and retrofit services.
