High Output Tandem or New Density Reduction Foam Sheet and Board Lines –
A Winning Combination

Food packaging, graphic arts and industrial product markets are just a few areas where our foam extrusion capabilities excel. High output processing of PE, PS and PP foam sheet has made Davis-Standard’s single and twin-screw tandem foam lines and in-line foam technology an industry performer. Whether you’re trying to achieve a specific product density or insulation characteristic, we can make it possible. Our weight reduction solutions along with superior feedscrews and process controls are equipped to give you an edge over the competition.


Our global experience in supplying sheet lines used in thermoformed packaging has made us a sheet extrusion leader. We understand the importance of each component and offer a range of Davis-Standard build and sourced equipment from trusted partners. We work with each customer to identify and address production demands to positively impact the bottom line.

Advantages of our capabilities in this area include in-line and off-line thermoforming sheet designs; high-speed extrusion systems, non-dried and dried APET solutions; on-line low bulk density scrap re-processing capabilities, single or multi-lane extrusion for optimal cooling, special FFS quality sheet line designs, and unique nipping and non-nipping auxiliary cooling carts.
