Davis-Standard, LLC will promote the company’s equipment innovation and regional growth during Chinaplas 2019 in Guangzhou, 21-24 May, alongside its subsidiaries Maillefer and Brampton Engineering.

Davis-Standard will share information about its recent acquisitions, Suzhou facility expansion, DS Activ-Check system for continuous extruder monitoring, dsX flex-packTM technology and stretch film capabilities. Davis-Standard will also exhibit an HPE-100H, 1” 24:1 extruder.

The acquisition of Brampton in 2018 augmented the company’s multi-layer film processing and winding technology for blown film applications. TSL (Thermoforming Systems LLC), also added in 2018, is the market leader in thermoforming equipment for high-volume packaging applications. TSL fits nicely with Davis-Standard’s continued growth in the packaging sector. Maillefer, acquired in 2017, expanded the company’s wire and cable, pipe and tube equipment offering, and added facilities in Finland and Switzerland to better serve customers, including those in China.

Davis-Standard’s Suzhou location is expanding this year and reflects the company’s strong extrusion coating business and long-term strategy in the region.

In response to the increased demand for “smart” technology, Davis-Standard recently introduced the DS Activ-Check system for continuous extruder monitoring. DS Activ-Check enables processors to take advantage of real-time preventative maintenance by providing early notifications of potential extruder failures.

The latest dsX flex-packTM model being promoted is the 300S. This single station extrusion and laminating line is designed specifically for the Asian flexible packaging market. It is a collaboration among Davis-Standard’s teams in the US, Germany and China, addressing the pricing, machine footprint, speeds and output, and shorter runs demanded by converters. Davis-Standard is also engineering a tandem configuration of this machine called the dsX flex-packTM 300T. The dsX flex- packTM 300S will be available for demonstration in Suzhou later this year.

For stretch film applications, Davis-Standard offers a stretch film line equipped with a DS S3 winder. The line offers a compact machine arrangement, ease of servicing, excellent profile control, consistent roll quality and an intuitive control package. It is engineered for producing thin films from 31-to 51-gauge (7.8μ to 13μ) at high speeds.

The HPE-100H extruder being shown is an example of Davis-Standard’s performance engineering for versatility, long-term market value and an attractive return on investment. This extruder is designed for co-extrusion and multi-layer applications, and is available with a variety of DSB feedscrew designs depending on application.
