We manufacture a complete line of laboratory and pilot equipment for cast film, blown film, tubing, sheet, coating, fiber, compounding, elastomer, and fine wire applications. This includes the Killion and Betol product lines. We supply everything from extruders, feedscrews, and control systems to chill rolls, roll stacks, sheet take-offs, winders, and payoffs. We also manufacture auxiliary equipment to complement laboratory and production-size systems.

Benchtop ExtrudersThese Killion brand extruders are designed for mobility and operation with different tooling sets and downstream equipment.
Equipment OptionsGrooved feed throats, vented barrels and other options can be fitted to extruders. Melt pumps and screw mixing devices available for specialized applications. Computer monitor and SCADA/LIMS systems are available.
The laboratory equipment needs of research-and-development labs differ greatly from the needs of large-scale operations. Accordingly, Davis-Standard Killion designs and manufactures a complete range of high-precision equipment for small laboratory and pilot production environments.
Converting (Cast Film, Coating, and Laminating)We are specialists in fluoropolymers and engineering polymers for these applications.
SheetCapabilities for up to seven layers are available including high PLI units, vertical, horizontal, orbital and rotating roll stacks.
Fiber MonofilamentBi-component lines are available for variety of monofilament applications.
Custom SolutionsWe design and manufacture equipment and extruders for special applications and process parameters.
WireSpecial systems are available for ultra fine wire and engineering polymers.
Killion Laboratory Systems
Our laboratory systems serve the diverse technology needs of plastics processors who require lab technology for small runs, product development and trials. Whether it’s the turnkey delivery of a seven-component narrow web lamination line — or a special extruder for an OEM — Davis-Standard product specialists design and build custom hybrid solutions. We incorporate the distinct process expertise needed for each application, and can supply dedicated all-in-one lines or modular line components.
Blown FilmMono and multilayer systems are available with lay flat widths down to 1 inch (25mm).
Sheet and LaminatingThese lab systems come in widths from 1 inch to 39 inches (25 to 990mm) for a thickness range of 0.008 to 0.16 inches (0.2 to 4mm).
Cast Film and CoatingModules are available for most coating and cast film processes.
PelletizingSingle screw compounding systems are capable of a few grams to 150 lbs. (68 kg) per hour.
FiberMono and multi filament lines are available based on ¾-inch (19mm) and 1-inch (25mm) extruders.
ExtrudersOur extruders are designed to provide interchangeable configurations for improved flexibility in the lab.
