Davis-Standard: Relocation of Technical Center

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2004

Davis-Standard is centralizing its development resources by moving its Technical Center to the company Test Area at its headquarters in Pawcatuck, Connecticut. The move will make better use of Davis-Standard facilities and better accommodate customer requirements for testing and trials. Slated for completion in early September, the relocation will integrate research and development activities into a 25,000 square-foot
(2,320 square-meter) space that is fully equipped for extrusion trials as well as line commissioning. Davis-Standard will have the capacity to test extrusion systems in excess of 140 feet (43 meters) long with complete facilities to conduct process trials across all product lines.
Principal Technical Center capabilities include extruders ranging from
1 1/2 to 4 1/2 inches (40 to 115mm) as well as a 3 1/2-inch (90mm) groove feed extruder and 3 1/2-inch (90mm) rubber extruder. Extruders have a barrel extension for 24:1, 30:1 and 34:1 operation. Multiple screw designs in a range of sizes are also available.
