Davis-Standard to present medical tubing solutions at MEDTEC

The Connecticut-headquartered Davis-Standard will be promoting its extensive line of medical tubing equipment, including extruders, controls, feedscrews, downstream equipment and complete systems at MEDTEC China (booth N208), which will be held in Shanghai on September 22-24. Davis- In addition to equipment, Davis-Standard’s in-house laboratory at its subsidiary in Suzhou supports process development for medical tubing applications with a high-speed FPVC extrusion system and multipurpose microbore tubing line.

Both Edgar Wang who oversees Davis-Standard’s medical tubing business in China and Glenn Beasley, Davis-Standard’s global medical tubing expert from the US, will be present during the show to speak with customers.

Davis-Standard supports applications for alternate polymer, microbore tubing, multi-lumen and catheter tubing, edotracheal and tracheotomy tubing, radio opaque tubing, bubble tube, taper tube, pipette tubing and multi-layer tubing, among others. Turn-key medical tubing systems support extruder outputs up to 315kg/hour (or 700 lb/per hour) and line speeds up to 800 ft/minute (240 mpm) for a range of materials including PLA, PLLA, PEEK, FPVC, polyurethane, nylon, PEBAX and FEP.

The Pawcatuck-based firm supplies versatile extruder options depending on process and application, including the direct-drive MEDD extruder, small-footprint HPE-A and HPE-H extruders, and the high-performance Super Blue extruder. All extruders are engineered for a fast delivery and competitive pricing. For added precision, the company offers a high-tech melt pump to minimise heat exposure and for exacting temperature control and pressure.

The FPVC laboratory line in Suzhou is capable of speeds from 5 to 100mpm for processing 2mm to 8mm OD tubing with accuracy of +/- 50u. Line components include an extruder, water-cooling, precision internal air supply, OD gauge and combination puller-cutter. The multipurpose micro bore tubing line is designed for single or dual layer tubing, and single lumen tubing with or without a stripe. It is equipped with two extruders, an OD/ID wall thickness measuring and controlling system, close loop control via vacuum sizing tank and puller, and a high level central control system. Both lines are available for customer trials and R&D applications, according to the company's latest press release.
