Davis-Standard: New “Super Blue™” Extruder Combines Cost-Efficiency with Fast Delivery

Davis-Standard recently introduced a new high performance extruder that is ready for shipment in two weeks from the order date. The competitively priced “Super Blue™” extruder is available in 2-inch (50mm), 2 1/2-inch (65mm), 75mm and 3 1/2-inch (90mm) sizes, each with a 24:1 L/D ratio. All four sizes will be displayed at Davis-Standard’s booth #5107, during NPE. The extruder is equipped with preferred features including a low noise, high torque double-reduction gearbox; cast aluminum finned heaters bolted to the barrel to ensure barrel-to-heater contact; a brushless AC drive and motor; and a high capacity, highly efficient air cooling system. The Super Blue is also standard with a three-year warranty.
“The Super Blue design is a reflection of market demand,” said Jim Murphy, business director at Davis-Standard. “Our customers want a quality machine with a shorter lead time at a good price. This extruder offers both the best value and delivery in the industry.”
The Super Blue line of extruders is ideal for custom profile and tubing applications as well as basic wire and cable and film applications. Machine advantages include a rigid base with structural steel construction; a wear-resistant bimetallic barrel designed for 10,000 psi operating pressure with removable barrel flange, rupture disc and pressure transducer behind the front flange; an “inverted-L” style control panel with a modular design for improved accessibility; and a gear drive reducer with heavy-wall, two-piece iron housing and single helical gearing. The Super Blue line of extruders is available with a wide range of screw designs to suit the customer’s applications. Davis-Standard’s industry-leading DSB® barrier design screws are offered with “A Lifetime of Process Support®” and are a perfect complement to the new Super Blue extruders.
