As a leading supplier of technology with 700 employees at our headquarters in Augsburg and in Leingarten, we develop, engineer and install machines and systems for process technology and film extrusion for our customers all over the world.
Proven since over 110 years: our mills, classifiers, compactors and turnkey systems for the production of fine powders and granules, for mineral base materials, in the chemicals / pharmaceuticals industries, for foodstuffs and for recycling tasks.
We are a leading international manufacturer of complete Blown Film Extrusion Equipment ranging from single extruder mono-lines to 11-layer high barrier film lines. Alpine’s X-Die is considered the “Gold Standard” in the Blown Film Industry.
With their knowledge, experience and engagement, our employees are the most important success factors for our company and the quality of our products. We offer a wide range of activities and career opportunities.
Maximum film quality through patents for blown film extrusion and film orientation.
Extensive series of trials in the Hosokawa Alpine testing center in Augsburg formed the basis for our patented blown film process. Film die heads of different sizes were tested with various raw materials with the same result: unparalleled film quality even at very high throughput rates and with the shortest purging times when changing programs. The breakthrough for the X series film die heads.
The patented X film die head
During the development of the new patented Hosokawa Alpine X film die head the most modern computer simulation models were used. The melt feeds into the spiral mandrel were optimized such that an extremely high flow and thermal homogeneity of the melt is achieved. As a result of the new melt distribution in the film die heads, the port lines on the film surface are eliminated during production of co-extrusion films. Films of outstanding quality from the optical properties to the film thickness profile with minimal tolerances result from this new series.
Your advantages at a glance:
very short changeover times between different materials as a result of the extremely short flow paths
reduced waste as a result of short changeover times
high output as a result of the low pressure level in the die head
easy accessibility due to the compact construction with a low overall height
all surfaces in contact with polymer are coated
Plenty of space available for the internal cooling system IBC
