50 µm High Barrier Film Structure with 11 Layers

Maximum flexibility in the world of Blown Film Production will be on display at the Dusseldorf fair grounds hall 16 booth D06. This is a K-show highlight you will not want to miss: A live demonstration of ALPINE’s 11 layer technology.

During the 8 days of the exhibition we will produce complex barrier film structures. The 11 extruders are arranged to minimize total footprint and the water cooled main drives are quiet and efficient. Alpine’s patented X-Die has been increased to 11 layers, maintaining the same film quality that you’ve come to
expect from the X-Die.

ALPINE’s proven cooling systems ensures the highest possible output rates with maximum bubble stability. The total film thickness and individual barrier layers are measured and displayed by an NDC inline scanner. The line is equipped with our newest oscillating haul-off design with integrated annealing, specially designed for barrier films and manufactured at our subsidiary HOSOKAWA KOLB near Cologne.

Line Control is provided by the new ExVis 4.0 with our “One-Touch” Change System. ExVis 4.0 is operator friendly and includes full energy monitoring. As with all Alpine ExVis systems remote on-line support is available for quick equipment maintenance and trouble-shooting. ALPINE’s latest Winder with reverse wind capability and a smart roll handling system facilitates smooth roll and shaft changes.

Hosokawa Alpine supplies complete blown film solutions ranging from single extruder mono-lines to 11-layer barrier film lines for every Flexible Packaging application. We also offer our MDO monodirectional film orientation system with the patented TRIO (Trim Reduction in Orientation) that reduces edge trim waste by more than 50% and ensures exceptional film flatness for superior productivity in printing and laminating. Every ALPINE system is custom produced to meet the specific and exacting requirements of each customer.
