Sustainable Machinery Performance and Smart Factory Solutions Brought To You By Davis-Standard at K2022

Davis-Standard will exhibit machinery and process solutions that highlight a commitment to value, innovation and sustainability during the K2022 Show in Düsseldorf, Germany, Hall 16 Booth A43. Following is a summary of technology to be shown and/or promoted:

Aftermarket Advantages – Davis-Standard and all portfolio brands offer end-to-end service, parts and line upgrades to help customers maximize productivity. Davis-Standard’s new DS Activ-Check platform can be installed on a continuously expanding number of company products (including both Davis-Standard and Maillefer machinery), delivering a powerful suite of analytical tools, cloud and local data storage options, process and equipment technology algorithms. A live demonstration of how customers can benefit from this technology will be given during the show.  

SHO Extruder (3.5-inch, 90mm) – Equipped to save space while offering outputs of at least 20 percent versus existing groove feed models, the SHO is engineered with a new gearbox, an optimized feed section and high-performance, energy-efficient DSB® barrier screw, especially beneficial for high-viscosity HDPE applications such as pipe extrusion, where lower melt temperatures, reduced power consumption and improved energy efficiency are paramount.

MXD Extruders – Maillefer’s new MXD series high-performance extruders will be on display in 45mm and 80mm sizes. Also, three ECH extrusion heads dedicated to three application areas; micro-drip irrigation, blown fiber microduct, and heating and plumbing applications. Downstream equipment will also be shown.

Model 4000A CrossheadIn elastomer, Davis-Standard will promote the Model 4000A crosshead, which allows for faster start-up times and little scrap. The Model 4000A incorporates an automatic, servo-driven concentricity and wall thickness adjustment system.

Extrusion Die 510A – Engineered for packaging, cup stock, board and paper, foil and film applications, the 510A offers simplified operation, improved safety and reduced waste. A short die lip facilitates minimal edge bead, excellent cross profile, and needed flexibility for processing various polymers at changing web widths. The motorized deckling adjustment promotes safe operation, and an optional way-encoder reduces waste during product changeover. The corrosion-resistant chrome nitride surface enables a sharper die exit edge to minimize polymer build-up and increase running time.

Extrusion Laminator – A laboratory-style linear three-roll laminator with a 900mm chill roll will be shown, engineered for high-cooling capacity at high-speed operation, and with a hydraulic linear nip pressure system to support a range of flexible packaging substrates.

XP Express® AGT – This model provides greater automation and process control for sheet extrusion applications. With a space-saving, multi-roll design, processors can take advantage of advanced cooling and polishing, die-to-nip management, web flatness, heat transfer, consistent sheet clarity and improved performance for low melt-strength resins. This model is not for sale in Germany. 

Feedscrew Display ­– A single screw extrusion plastication model will show the transformation of raw plastic material into melt as it is pushed to the front of the screw through a rotational action. A single-stage metering screw and single-stage barrier screw will also be displayed.
