Davis-Standard Limited has announced the addition of blown film die rebuild and cleaning services at its facility in Brierley Hill, United Kingdom. The new services, which will commence August 1, 2016, will apply to all blown film dies from Davis-Standard product lines and heritage brands, including Gloucester Engineering. Non-Davis-Standard brands will be considered on a case-by-case basis. This regional capability further supports Davis-Standard’s large installed base of blown film equipment throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“Our service team is highly knowledgeable in the cleaning of blown film dies as well as the disassembly and assembly of various key components,” says Mark Woodgate, managing director of Davis-Standard Limited. “Our vigorous component inspection program ensures customers are immediately aware of any parts that may require refinishing or replacement. This can often result in great cost savings when compared to purchasing a new die. Having a die professionally rebuilt by the original equipment manfucturer using certified replacement parts also brings a level of assurance that others cannot provide.”
The rebuild services will be located within a dedicated area of the Davis-Standard Limited facility and staffed by technicians with decades of experience in extrusion and blown film processes. Support is available both on and off site to ensure customer needs are addressed in a timely manner. Davis-Standard’s aftermarket team in the United Kingdom is part of a global aftermarket team that offers a full range of services including parts replacement and support, complete rebuilds for gearboxes and extruders, as well as control upgrades, drive conversions and more.
