PAWTUCKET, R.I.—Davis-Standard L.L.C. will use a Medalist medical thermoplastic elastomer from Teknor Apex Co. in a demonstration of Industry 4.0 technology at NPE2018.
The elastomer will be used to produce tubing at the Davis-Standard exhibit (Booth W5947) during the show, May 7-11, in Orlando, Fla.
The process, Davis-Standard said in a news release, will use Medalist MD-12382 TPE, a translucent, kink-resistant, gamma-stable compound, to be used as an alternative to silicones for applications in transferring drugs, proteins, bodily fluids or blood. Teknor also will supply translucent color concentrates for use with the compound.
The production line on show at the Davis-Standard booth will use the company's Thermatic extruder design and the DS eVUEII controller.
