Davis-Standard, LLC Improves Availability of Auto Die Control

(Fulton, NY)-The Converting Systems Group of Davis-Standard, LLC recently improved the availability of its automatic die control system by creating a North American version of the technology, which is supported by the company's facilities in New York and New Jersey. Previously, the auto die control was only available through Davis-Standard's facility in Erkrath Germany and configured for the European marketplace. The availability of the system in the United States and Europe will strengthen service and support for converting customers worldwide.

"We already have several customers in the United States using the German-based version of the auto die system," explained Tarek Adly, product manager of drives and controls for the Converting Systems Group. "By creating a North American version and offering it through our facilities in the United States, we hope to make it more accessible to more of our customers."

The automatic die, engineered for extrusion coating, laminating and cast film processes, provides precise control of the melt curtain to improve film quality, accuracy and efficiency. This ensures a better film product while helping to reduce production costs. Advantages include a graphic based interface; recipe management; automatic switch-over; automatic suppression of defective profiles after a roll change at unwind or by alteration of the line speed; and set profile functions for special applications. The system is equipped with handling features for die bolts underneath the deckling and in the trim area as well as manual control of single die bolts when the die is in automatic mode. Converters also have the option to automatically switch the die bolt into power mode in case of sensor failure. The automatic die control system is designed to work with the Integrator PRO and the Integrator C. The Integrator C is the replacement for the CMR.
