The "global advantage" offered by Davis-Standard’s converting technology and support services will be promoted at ICE USA (Booth 411) in Orlando, Florida, April 25-27. Specifically, the company will highlight its liquid coating technology along with its cost-effective, high productivity processing systems for converting applications – the dsX series.
Davis-Standard’s liquid coating technology includes a curtain slide coater and a 5-roll silicone coater. The curtain-slide coater applies single-layer coatings at rates up to 2800 fpm (853 mpm) with expansion capabilities up to two additional layers. The coater is capable of applying 100 percent silicone at rates up to 2400 fpm (732 mpm). It is constructed of stainless steel for ease of cleanup and includes a mist removal system. Davis-Standard supports liquid coating for slow or high-speed applications, clean room environments, film or paper substrates, ultra-thin and ultra-thick coatings, and precision coating and drying.
In extrusion coating, Davis-Standard offers the dsX flex-pack to provide converters and package printers with a high-value, competitively priced system. An adaptable machine configuration gives processors the flexibility to compete in a variety of emerging application markets including salted snack and noodle bags, toothpaste tubes, personal care products, condiment packs and standup pouches. Production benefits include product consistency, excellent bonding strength, greater uptime and productivity, and reduced waste and production costs. The economical benefit of these 450 mpm (1,500 fpm) machines is allowing many regional converters to distinguish themselves from the competition.
Davis-Standard technology supports cast and blown film applications with the dsX s-tretch and dsX flex-film systems. In blown film, the dsX flex-film is designed for applications in printing and laminating, flexible packaging, collation shrink and bag making, hood shrink and surface printing.
