Davis-Standard’s line of dsX products will headline the company’s presence at the Interplastica show in Moscow, 27-30 January 2015. Located in Hall FO, booth FD42, Davis-Standard will have representatives from its subsidiary in Germany to promote technology in blown film, cast film, extrusion coating, foam, profile and sheet applications. Interplastica is the industry’s most important trade fair in Russia where Davis-Standard continues to seek opportunities to grow and expand. Following is a summary of Davis-Standard’s latest developments.
dsX s-tretch cast film line is the first cast film line of its kind, providing an alternative to pre-stretching techniques traditionally done on blown film lines. Processors can take advantage of thinner films, higher line speeds and improved film strength. From a cost and environmental standpoint, benefits include consistently high quality pre-stretch film produced with greater efficiency and reduced waste via coreless winding. The line is equipped to support a range of resins and applications at web widths from 775 to 1550mm (30 to 45 inches). For added efficiency, it is pre-configured for availability in as little as six months of order to acceptance.
dsX flex-film blown film line is the latest in Davis-Standard’s line of dsX technology. This pre-engineered blown film line is designed to serve the core of the blown film industry for applications in printing and laminating, flexible packaging, collation shrink film, bag making, hood shrink and surface printing. Available in 1900mm and 2500mm sizes, processors can take advantage of Davis-Standard’s high performance technology at an affordable price. This includes industry-leading air rings (see UpJet), die and feedscrew designs for film uniformity, high output rates and long-lasting equipment performance. Options for different widths, die sizes and accommodations for multiple applications are available.
UpJet air ring is geared toward commodity markets including stretch film, can liners and industrial films. It can be used on existing and new blown film lines in manual or auto-profile mode. When used with Davis-Standard’s automatic profile control and Centrex or Vertex dies, output increases have been as much as 40 percent. It is available in sizes ranging from 7 to 40 inches (180 to 1016mm) in manual or motorized elevation control and passive or automatic thickness profile control configurations.
dsX flex-pack extrusion coating line supports cost-sensitive flexible packaging applications. It is pre-configured to merge customer demand with the best components in the industry for better end-product quality, greater uptime and productivity, reduced waste and production costs and application versatility. It is engineered with proven components and an adaptable machine configuration, making it ideal for converters, printing companies, multinational companies and start-ups.
