With over 250 installed building wire systems worldwide, Davis-Standard is a market leader. Our high output wire and cable extrusion lines are engineered for insulating single cores and jacketing multi-conductor insulated constructions. These lines are capable of extruding PVC from powder or pellets, and can coextrude multi-layer constructions such as nylon over PVC. Our technology also provides continuous operation with packaging of the product in coils, on reels or stem packs.

In addition to supplying fully integrated building wire systems, Davis Standard specializes in the design and manufacture of components required for high-speed extrusion. All Davis Standard wire and cable extrusion equipment can be customized to meet individual processor’s needs.

  • Diameter Measuring Dual Plane
  • Multi-Pass or Belt Wrap Capstan (based on conductor size)
  • Take-Up System Dual Reel, NPS System, Barrel Packer, Gantry
  • Control System: EPIC III™

Typical Specifications

Conductor Solid and stranded copper: .456 – 506.7 mm² 22 awg – 1000 mcm
Diameter Over Insulation Up to 33.5mm Up to 1.32 inches
Maximum Line Speed 2590 mpm 8500 fpm

 

In the area of power cable, Davis Standard designs and manufactures both steam and dry cure extrusion systems (to 35 kVA). Steam extrusion systems are best suited for a minimum investment, and for extrusion compounds not formulated for high temperature curing. This equipment processes rubber, XLPE, and regular thermoplastic polyethylene without changing a major piece of equipment. A nitrogen extrusion system (dry cure) provides a fast and economical option for thermoset insulations, particularly XLPE.

Typical Specifications

Conductor Copper/aluminium, 0,5 - 500 mm²
Conductor Design Round and sector shaped
Diameter Over Insulation Up to 45mm Up to 1.8 inches
Maximum Line Speed Up to 1200 mpm Up to 3840 fpm

 

Davis-Standard is a global leader in supplying high-speed automotive wire insulating extrusion lines to produce low-voltage automotive cables for signals, pressure gauges, lights, lighters, alarms and controls. These lines, available from 19 to 24-gauge, are engineered for reliable performance and consistent quality. Both standard thermoplastic materials and cross-linked flame retardant polyethylene (XLPE and HFFR) can be processed utilizing Slant Line CV technology. Automatic color change systems for primary insulation, skin and striping minimize scrap while maximizing production.
