Oracle Packaging finds immediate success with Davis-Standard line
A new Davis-Standard extrusion coating line at Oracle Packaging is exceeding throughput expectations, enabling Oracle to get products to market more quickly than anticipated. The installation at the manufacturer from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, was completed in December and supports Oracle’s manufacturing of aluminium foil-based products. Applications include custom lid stock, pouch stock, cable armouring, and products with specific barrier and sealant properties. The versatile and expandable design of the Davis-Standard line is fundamental to Oracle’s marketplace growth strategy.
“We researched several global manufacturers and Davis-Standard had the best combination of delivering a total solution for our critical and precise specifications,” said Chris Payne, Oracle’s vice president of sales and marketing. “In addition to addressing machine performance requirements, we were pleased with the installation. There are always challenges with big projects and Davis-Standard met each roadblock head-on. They collaborated with our project team and managed their direct and sub-contracted installers well. We are surpassing throughput estimates, which is giving us a head-start in delivering several products to market.”
The line was customised for Oracle’s processes, including coextrusion capabilities and winding equipment. Davis-Standard’s extrusion coating equipment offers advantages such as superior melt quality, automatic profile control (APC), multi-coating capacity, web handling and flexible designs based on desired speed or automation.
