Davis-Standard promotes tube and pipe innovations at Shanghai trade show

EQUIPMENT solutions for Asia’s high-growth markets were promoted by Davis-Standard, LLC during Chinaplas 2022 in Shanghai recently. This included technology in extrusion coating, pipe, profile and tubing and winding and unwinding. Davis Standard exhibited an HPE-075H 24:1 extruder, which is an example of the company’s high performance extruder range for coextrusion and multi-layer applications. Davis-Standard (Suzhou) Machinery has been central to all efforts in the region with machine building and assembly, inventory and aftermarket support, field service and installations. Specific to pipe, profile and tubing, Davis-Standard promoted its Medical Extruder Direct Drive (MEDD) and Super High Output (SHO) extruders as well as Maillefer. The compact MEDD is built with a replaceable feed section liner and direct drive technology for greater efficiency and materials flexibility. Davis-Standard offers a high-tech melt pump system to maximise stability when processing sensitive materials. It is ideal for medical tubing and industrial tubing applications that require a cleanroom environment. The SHO extruder is the latest

Davis-Standard’s dsX flex-pack™ 300S designed for high-output flexible packaging

addition to Davis-Standard’s groove feed technology. The SHO delivers outputs 20 per cent higher than existing groove feed models. It is engineered with an improved feed section and high-performance, energy-efficient DSB ® barrier screw. This is especially beneficial for high-viscosity HDPE applications such as pipe extrusion, where lower melt temperatures, reduced power consumption and improved energy efficiency are essential. Maillefer’s pipe and tube extrusion systems support markets encompassing medical, blown fibre micro duct, heating and plumbing, automotive, micro-drip irrigation, on- and off-shore flexibles,

and other specialty and technical goods. These systems are engineered to provide value that makes a difference. Blown film microduct destined for FTTx data networks, multi-layer PEX-AI PEX composite pipe for heating and plumbing, and multi-functional tubing for automotive applications are examples of the production capacity available from the Maillefer portfolio. In extrusion and liquid coating, Davis Standard has demonstrated expertise in designing machinery for the circular economy. Fives recruiting FIVES, an international engineering group, is looking to recruit a new junior digital communication specialist based in Italy.

VICLA exhibits its automatic tool changer at LAMIERA 2022

The VICLA ATC system – single or TWIN – is able to reduce setup times by up to four or five times compared to manual activities and eliminate downtimes between one process and another. This solution is recommended in the case of frequent setups, special and heavy tools, small batches, at the limit of a single piece, complex processing and the need for repeatability and precision. LAMIERA 2022 will take place from 18 to 21 May and VICLAwill be showcasing its Automatic Tool Changer in Hall 15 at Stand E13.

ITALY-based VICLA will showcase its hybrid automatic tool changer during the twenty-first edition of LAMIERA 2022. It will be the first time that it has been shown to the general public.
