As 2019 rapidly approaches, Davis-Standard will continue to focus on Asia’s high-growth markets. Asian markets continue to develop quickly, and Davis-Standard’s high-output technology has made the company a leading equipment supplier in the region, especially for medical and packaging applications.

Davis-Standard has a significant installed base in the Asia-Pacific region, and sees key vertical opportunities in the aftermarket, upgrades and optimization of lines for performance. Specific markets of interest include China, India, Korea, Taiwan and the growing ASEAN markets.

Davis-Standard (Suzhou) Plastics Packaging Machinery, Co., Ltd. continues to be central to the company’s growth in Asia. Developments in the areas of machine building and assembly, inventory and aftermarket services, field service engineering, and installation at customer sites have been essential to supporting customers.

Suzhou is also the site of R&D capabilities for testing rigid and flexible packaging products, as well as FPVC tubing for IV and fluid delivery. Examples of applications include microbore tubing, multi-lumen and catheter tubing, endotracheal and tracheotomy tubing, bubble tubing, taper tubing and many others.

This includes Davis-Standard’s MEDD extruder, which is specifically engineered for tight tolerance applications due to its compact design, energy efficiency and materials versatility.

Other advantages of the MEDD include linear movement, a replacement feed space between words section liner, interchangeable barrel assemblies and a Windows®-based control system.

In terms of developments, Davis-Standard recently introduced the dsX flex-pack™ 300S. This single station extrusion and lamination line is a collaboration between Davis-Standard’s teams in the U.S., Germany and China, and is built specifically for the Asian flexible packaging market.

It is engineered for processing rates of 300 meters per minute and accommodates the pricing, machine footprint, speeds, output and shorter runs demanded by converters. Davis-Standard has plans to offer a tandem configuration of this line called the dsX flex-pack™ 300T.

Davis-Standard’s new stretch film line with the DS S3 winder has also been beneficial to Asian converters. Quality control, versatility and efficiency are hallmarks of this technology.

The line offers a compact machine arrangement, ease of servicing, excellent profile control, consistent roll quality and an intuitive control package. It is engineered for producing thin films from 31-to 51-gauge (7.8µ to 13µ) at high speeds.

Davis-Standard’s side-by-side DS S3 overlapping winder is essential to this capability. The DS S3 winder enables maximum slit widths for hand-wrap, machine-wrap and jumbo rolls, supporting multiple market segments on one winder. Films discharge out the front of the line to a common side to simplify roll packing and future automation.

Cores are also same-side loaded from the back to minimize disruption of packing activities. There is an auxiliary lay-on roll to minimize top-wind waste during transfer and outer wrap transfer waste, whilst optimizing roll quality. All features are advantageous for high-grade film operations.

Key additions have also been instrumental to supporting Asian customers. The addition of Maillefer in 2017 expanded wire and cable and pipe and tubing equipment on a global level, complementing the FPVC medical tubing and coextrusion applications supported by the Suzhou location. This includes pipe and tube technology for automotive, heating and plumbing, irrigation, medical, micro-duct, off-shore and custom lines.

The company’s most recent acquisition of Brampton Engineering in 2018, further supports regional infrastructure for film applications.

Finally, Davis-Standard is committed to supporting Asian customers with smart factory solutions across all product lines. Integrated control systems enable processors to connect and communicate with multiple lines and with Davis-Standard personnel simultaneously.

This includes remote access for gathering information from equipment sensors for troubleshooting and maintenance. Technical assistance for line optimization using remote teams is an essential part of this capability.
