Davis-Standard teams up with Coperion. (In Brief).

Coperion Corp., Ramsey, N.J., and Davis-Standard Corp., Pawcatuck, Conn., have agreed to jointly supply complete in-line compounding and extrusion systems for the NAFTA market area. Under the agreement, Coperion becomes the exclusive supplier to Davis-Standard of compounding extruders-either Coperion Werner & Pfleiderer ZSK corotating twin-screws or Coperion Buss single-screw, reciprocating kneaders. Davis-Standard will be the exclusive supplier of in-line extrusion systems utilizing Coperion compounders. Cast film and sheet are among the anticipated applications.

Davis-Standard will discontinue its own production of co-rotating twin-screw compounders (under license from Japan Steel Works). Support will continue for existing customers, and D-S will still make counter-rotating twin-screws.

Davis-Standard will set up a demonstration line with Coperion equipment at its Pawcatuck technical center. Davis-Standard: (860) 599-1010, www.davis-standard.com; Coperion: (201)327-6300, www.coperion.com
