The Sigma Plastics Group announced the purchase of three Davis-Standard film lines during the recent NPE, held May 7-11 in Orlando, Florida.

The Davis-Standard lines consist of one 2.5-meter cast film hygiene line and two 5-layer agricultural blown film stretch lines. The cast hygiene line is the second of its kind purchased by Sigma in the last three years. It will be engineered for A/B/A structures with in-line printing capabilities. The 5-layer stretch lines will include Davis-Standard Optiflow LP dies and vertical oscillating haul-off technology. Installation is anticipated for 2018.

“Davis-Standard has been exemplary at supporting our business demands and growth,” notes Alfred Teo, chairman of Sigma Plastics Group. “This purchase confirms our confidence in Davis-Standard’s film technology as we continue to augment capabilities for our extensive line of custom films, stretch films and institutional products. We look forward to another successful installation.”

Sigma Plastics, the largest privately-held film manufacturer in North America, has been a Davis-Standard customer for 40 years. The company operates more than 350 Davis-Standard lines at 42 manufacturing facilities throughout the United States and Canada. With an annual throughput of over 2 billion pounds of resin, Sigma Plastics produces flexible packaging products for the industrial, food, medical, retail and converter film markets.

Sigma Plastics also purchase equipment at NPE from W&H, Reifenhauser and NGR.
