Taghleef Industries installed a custom Davis-Standard liquid coating line at its facility in Terre Haute, Indiana, to support new markets in coated oriented polypropylene (OPP) films. Taghleef is one of the world’s largest suppliers of specialty and high-performance films for packaging, labels, industrial, and graphic arts applications. The Davis-Standard line, installed in the first quarter of 2021, is enabling Taghleef to bring added value and enhanced performance to OPP films to support customers throughout North America and beyond.
Critical to the success of the line’s engineering and design was the collaborative efforts that took place at Davis-Standard’s Technical Center in Fulton, New York. Taghleef ran trials on Davis-Standard’s pilot line to prove and test equipment technology prior to purchase. According to Larry Mauer, Taghleef’s Senior Director of Operations for North America, Davis-Standard worked with their team to quickly address issues while guiding them through all project phases, from R&D and design to installation and qualification.
Davis-Standard is an industry leader in liquid coating systems used for tapes and labels, silicone-coating products, and in specialty coating markets. One of the primary advantages for customers such as Taghleef is Davis-Standard’s ability to custom engineer a solution from a product portfolio of more than 50 liquid coating processes. This Davis-Standard advantage is bolstered by R&D capabilities that enable customers to evaluate and validate structures and processes or new markets and applications for film and paper substrates. www.ti-films.com; www.davis-standard.com
