Davis-Standard LLC will showcase its upgraded Medical Extruder Direct Drive (MEDD) extruder design at Plastec West Booth #4024. Running a swab stick line at the show, the demo will utilize a 1-in. (25-mm) MEDD along with DS-eVUE controls, a Conair vacuum tank, puller/cutter and blowoff conveyor, as well as a Guill Tool die and Zumbach gauging system.
Featuring encased components and stainless-steel surfaces for ease of cleaning, the sleek new MEDD design offers high performance and cleanroom convenience. Cable management is improved with an enclosed plug plate area at the front of the machine including an access door, as well as a cable divider above the front door for wire bundling and separation.
“We are excited to introduce the new MEDD extruder design at the Plastec West Show. Not only is this a very versatile machine, but it is even better suited for cleanroom environments than its predecessor,” stated Kevin Dipollino, Davis-Standard’s senior product manager of pipe, profile, and tubing systems, in a news release. “For purposes of the show, we are demonstrating the capabilities of our MEDD extruder as well as our system capabilities, by running swab sticks. During the height of COVID, the ability of our customers to supply swab sticks for testing was key to supporting pandemic efforts.”
The extruder offers cable routing, a bi-directional hood vent, and access doors to enclose the feed section cooling and material drain port. The access doors on both sides of the barrel allow the operator easy access for quick removal and changeover of the barrel assembly. Processors can take advantage of various MEDD models with interchangeable barrel assemblies in the following sizes: ¾ – 1 inch, 1 – 1.25 inch and 1.25 – 1.5 inch sizes, each with a 24:1 or 30:1 L/D, the company reported in the release.
Davis-Standard will be represented at show this year by Dipolllino, Joe Wnuk, Dr. Jason Baird, Tyler McKenna, and Glenn Beasley.
