Davis-Standard Expands In-House Die Machining
Davis-Standard recently expanded its in-house die-machining capabilities at its plant in Bridgewater, NJ, USA. The newly installed Viper heavyweight VTL machining center will accommodate large-diameter mandrels with four-axis capabilities. This upgrade is ideal for Davis-Standard’s Centrex and Vertex co-extrusion dies that will now be manufactured in diameters up to 86 inches (2,100 mm) in circumference.
The new machining center features automatic tool changes, allowing for multiple machining processes to be completed in one set-up. Parts will also be machined with superior finishes to reduce hand polishing. Customers can expect to receive dies with a fast turnaround and competitive pricing.
