(Fulton, N.Y.)--Davis-Standard, LLC will promote several converting technologies at the upcoming CMM show, booth #808, including its new extrusion coating product line. Introduced in early 2008, this line provides processors with a comprehensive line of extrusion coating equipment from a single-source supplier to support basic applications all the way up to those with high-speed, complex requirements. The line has been well received by the market due to a fast delivery and range of options to accommodate various processes and budgets.
It is available in three models- the 300, 450 and 750 - each one reflecting approximate line speed capabilities in meters per minute. The 300 model is engineered for customers who desire to enter new markets or grow their business with a modest investment. The 450 model provides greater output and automation, while the 750 offers the fastest line speeds and most options for large-scale production applications. All three can be tailored for customer specific flexible packaging applications. They also combine the very best technologies of each brand within Davis-Standard's Converting Systems Group.
Other technical advances from Davis-Standard include the patented pressurized gravure head (PGH) technology and high-speed cast stretch film lines engineered in four-up, six-up and eight-up configurations. This includes inline hand wrap winders with 25-second cycle times and those capable of winding 500mm diameter rolls. In the area of blown film, Davis-Standard offers a complete line of equipment and systems for geomembrane, industrial films and bags, agricultural and construction films, barrier films, stretch films, can liners and laminating films. Davis-Standard also has the experience and knowledge for difficult and demanding processes like fluoropolymers, biopolymers, and barrier resins addressing a range of end markets applications such as photovoltaics, aerospace, biodegradable packaging and surface protecting films.
Davis-Standard will also promote its latest control system technology for its converting equipment with the DS5, Integrator C and Integrator Pro. The DS5 (Davis-Standard Secure Service Support System) enables service personnel to respond to customer needs, diagnose, and fix problems via a secure, high-speed Internet connection. Customers, regardless of location, can minimize lengthy downtimes by giving Davis-Standard service personnel and engineers immediate online access to their equipment. The Integrator C is a new single-point system to replace obsolete CMR systems. The Integrator C has the functionality of previous systems, but with additional features such as recipe management, historical data trending and alarms. It also features a new PLC drive interface, improved temperature controls and enhanced gauge control based on the age of the existing gauge system.
