Hosokawa Alpine Aktiengesellschaft, Blown Film Division

Highlights and Program Schedule

You are invited to have a look at Hosokawa Alpine’s new developments in the segment of film extrusion at Stand D06, Hall 16.


One example is the extremely versatile 5-layer blown film line with throughput rates of up to 1,000 kg/h. The HXS 65 / 65 / 105 / 65 / 65 – 30 L/D extruders with smart boxes are run with asynchronous servo motors. The line is controlled via an ExVis 2.0 with one-touch system. The patented FBF 16-40 X die head is equipped with a 400 mm die. Like the cooling system, it is specially designed for very high throughput rates.


Every exhibition day, we run a different film production process to demonstrate just how versatile Hosokawa Alpine lines are. During the demonstrations, our lines will process resins from Borealis®, ExxonMobilTM, Sabic® and Total®.


On five exhibition days, the produced film will also be oriented inline by the Alpine MDO 20/11 inline film orientation line with an operating width of 2,000 mm, 11 rolls and an outlet line speed of less than or equal to 200 m/min. The orientation ratio of ≤ 10:1 can be infinitely adjusted. On these days you can view the newly developed and patented TRIO System in active operation and see that this unique profile control system reduces the process-related waste web scrap by up to 50% - with excellent film flatness. The result: premium-quality film rolls! At the end of this demonstration process, the waste web scrap is compounded by a repelletizing extruder and re-fed to the process.


Another innovation is the Alpine Double Winder ATW with an extremely space-saving stack configuration. A user-friendly handling system facilitates the shaft changes.


If you want to see how to achieve maximum versatility by intelligent combination of film layers, make sure not to miss the displayed new Alpine X-die for up to 11 layers.
