“The additional space will allow us to build more extrusion coating lines at our main plant while supporting other machine services, including faster delivery,” says Jinsong Lin, gm-Suzhou. “We also appreciate how close this building is to our existing facility. The increased manufacturing capacity is a positive reflection of our growth over the past few years. We have become one of the top equipment suppliers in the region and we don’t take that for granted.”
The medical tubing and packaging segments continue to be strong markets for Davis-Standard throughout
Asia. Equipment sold to regional customers for medical tubing, extrusion-coating and coextrusion
applications is built in Suzhou, as is assembly of electrical control panels, extruders and gearcases.
There is also an impressive R&D facility at this location, equipped with technology for testing a range of rigid and flexible products, as well as FPVC tubing for IV and fluid delivery. Examples include microbore tubing, multilumen and catheter tubing, endotracheal and tracheotomy tubng, bubble tubing, taper tubing and others.
Most recently, Davis-Standard added a new dsX flex-pack™ 300S to this lab for customer trials. This is a single-station extrusion and lamination line built specifically for the Asian flexible-packaging market.
