Davis-Standard Corp. has developed a side-fed die for blown film producers.
The StatPak die is designed for processing small-diameter tubes used for making seamless bags, such as trash can liners and shipping sacks, according to the company in Pawcatuck, Conn.
StatPak features a coat-hanger design that uniformly spreads the polymer around the circumference of the die. A spiral mandrel section improves the overall distribution thickness and eliminates weld lines. Another advantage of the side-fed layout: A large internal hold through the center of the die allows the film maker to increase air flow while maintaining film quality.
