Blown Film Technology

Hosokawa Alpine is one of the world's foremost suppliers of film blowing systems. As a onestop shopping partner, Alpine supplies complete systems for the manufacture of blown film, from granule feeding systems to film winders, from single-layer die heads to 11-layer lines, and from simple speed regulators to state-of-the-art process control systems. And with Alpine's own film orientation lines, complete systems are now available which facilitate film upgrading and enhancement processes. Blown film producers rely on Hosokawa Alpine for complete systems integration. Hosokawa offers the most advanced extrusion control systems for process optimisation. We not only design and manufacture the major extrusion components of a blown film system such as extruders, dies, winders and haul-offs, we also supply treaters, blenders, gravimetric systems, air chillers and steel towers. To meet the ever-increasing demands for multi-layer films, Hosokawa Alpine offers coextrusion systems to produce up to eleven film layers including nylon, EVA, EVOH and mLLDPE. Our systems offer tremendous flexibility and can be designed for swing line capabilities. Optimally equipped test laboratories in Augsburg / Germany, Natick / USA are available to customers from the film industry for practice oriented testing. These laboratories are also used intensively for the internal testing and ongoing development of Alpine's equipment.
