Davis-Standard’s new dsX flex-pack extrusion coating line offers converters and package printers "a high value, competitively priced system that will give them distinct advantages when seeking to expand sales in the price-sensitive global flexible packaging market".
The pre-engineered line can be delivered in as little as six months — providing users with all the capabilities and flexibility needed to compete effectively for a variety of rapidly emerging application opportunities including salted snack and noodle bags, toothpaste tubes, sachet packs, personal care products, condiment packs and stand-up pouches.
Bob Florence, Davis-Standard executive vice president sales and marketing, says: "All of the components of the dsX flex-pack line are based on our proven, designs and technology that minimize technical risks and lower cost of ownership. We have included everything our customers will need to achieve their flexible packaging manufacturing objectives, whether they are converters looking to upgrade for higher throughputs and quality; multinational suppliers in search of expansion opportunities; high-quality printers who want to enhance their lamination processes; or start-ups who could benefit from partnering with a company that can lead them through all the steps that assure extrusion coating success."
The dsX line includes: flexible packaging unwinder; corona treaters; extrusion laminator; gravure primer coater dryer; pull roll with nip; winder; electrically heated, air-cooled Davis-Standard extruder with advanced feedscrew design; downstream, carriage, and controls (Seimens drives and controls used throughout). Two versions are available: a longer line with the auxiliary unwinder placed close to the floor; the other raises the auxiliary unwinder to a position just atop the winder to shorten both the line length and the path of the auxiliary web to the laminator.
