Digitisation at Hosokawa Alpine

For economical and stable production processes

Digitisation entails human-to-machine communication, communication among machines, enhanced visualisation and improved process control, etc. Nowadays, a blown film line can be completely controlled from a screen. This forms the basis for our digitisation solution.

The Alpine user interface is called ExVis 5.0, which means Extrusion Visualization. In addition to operating the machine, the control concept, including visualisation and line control, allows evaluation of processes, alarm messages and energy monitoring, etc.

With Isa (Intelligent Software Assistant), we also provide a platform to make production smarter. The application serves to combine, as well as view and analyse at a glance, the process data of all the machines involved in the manufacturing process. Isa therefore sustainably increases manufacturing efficiency and process quality in production.
