PAWCATUCK, Conn.—Davis-Standard L.L.C. will present a new machine at this year's International Elastomer Conference—a fully automated crosshead for hose applications.
As well, the company will present one of its popular DSREV extruders.
The IEC is set for Oct. 4-7 in Pittsburgh, Pa. Davis-Standard will be located at Booth No. 1533.
According to Davis-Standard, the new Model 4000AG fully automated crosshead is based on the company's previous series, including the 2000, 3000 and automated 3000A crossheads.
"This latest design provides closed loop, stepper-driven automatic control of tube concentricity and wall thickness in a hands-free, low maintenance package," the company stated in an Aug. 28 press release. "The Model 4000AG is also beneficial from the perspective of operational safety and user-friendliness."
Also at the booth will be the DSREV extruder, a machine "with feedscrew and head zone direct-injection temperature control units, a compact base and simplified cooling and wiring systems."
In concert with the Uth pump and strainer system with a two-roll feeder, operators can achieve pressure stabilization.
"Other advantages include improved filtration, reduced material retention time and a small footprint for easy integration into existing lines," according to Davis-Standard.
In addition, an aftermarket representative will be present at the IEC to talk feedscrew services, spare parts, rebuilds and other options.
