Extrusion line manufacturer Davis-Standard reports it recently commissioned a coextrusion pilot line at its new 4000 ft2 (372m2) blown film lab in its Somerville, NJ facility for equipment development for coextrusion film constructions and new materials. The line, available for customer trials Monday through Friday, is geared especially to support customer testing in applications such as stretch hood, lamination films, shipping sacks, GP film, and technical films.

According to Rick Keller, vice president of blown film for Davis-Standard Converting Systems, “We designed this line to support customers who strive to bring new ideas and technologies to the marketplace. As such, we anticipate most trials will be proprietary.” He added, “Our machine’s integrated data logging simplifies trials and by using production-size equipment, any scale-up difficulties should be minimized. We’re excited about the potential this line has for our customers and us.”

Line components include one 100mm and two 2 ½-inch (64 mm) MAC extruders; gravimetric batch blending; a 12-inch (300 mm) Vertex three-layer die with new IBC design; 12-inch (300 mm) WesJet air ring; profile control; an 80-inch (2-meter) finished width, oscillating haul-off; and 1150 turret winder for films rolls up to a 30-inch (750 mm) outside diameter.
