Hosokawa Alpine American is one of North America's leading equipment suppliers of Blown Film systems, offering the entire spectrum of Blown Film Lines from single-layer bag lines to the most sophisticated 11 layer barrier film lines.

As Seen In Plastics Technology

K 2016 Extrusion: Speed, Versatility Rule the Day at K
Shorter product runs mean frequent product changeovers for processors, and suppliers responded to these trends across all extrusion technologies.

Alpine Piled on the Layers At K 2016
A record for film blowing at a show: 11 layers.

Alpine Kicks Off K With Lots of Layers
Layers are great with chocolate cake. And blown film too. Hosokawa Alpine ran what’s believed to be a show first: an 11-layer line producing nylon-based barrier film.

K 2016 Preview: Extrusion and Compounding
Regardless of what you might be extruding, the themes of speed and flexibility will loom large in extrusion at the giant show.

EXTRUSION: New Temperature Controller, HMI Boost Film Productivity
Nine-layer line already in use by leading multi-national film processor.

Nova Installs Nine-Layer Blown Film Line to Enhance Customer Collaboration
It's said to be a first for PE resin producers in North America.

EXTRUSION AND COMPOUNDING AT NPE: Flexibility, Speed, Quality Rule the Day
Extrusion processors need more—of everything—to compete. And suppliers responded in force in Orlando.

EXTRUSION AND COMPOUNDING AT NPE: The Word Is ‘More’
As in speed, power, quality, flexibility, layers, and efficiency. Those are the trends across all extrusion processes.

Extrusion/Compounding at K 2013: Having It All
Extrusion processors no longer need to chose among speed, quality, and flexibility, based on exhibits at K 2013.

K 2013 Preview: Extrusion, Compounding, Recycling
Across all extrusion technologies, expect to see new standards in speed, quality, flexibility, and efficiency in both energy and material usage.

New Film Line Is Quick to Purge
Processor sees color changes in less than 10 minutes.

Packaging Powerhouse Does It All
Materials formulation, cast and blown film extrusion, sheet extrusion, printing, and laminating come under one roof at this processor.

Modified MDO Gives Higher Film Yields
Hosokawa Alpine American, Natick, Mass., is offering new machine-direction orientation (MDO) technology that is said to dramatically reduce the amount of film to be edge-trimmed compared with other MDO designs.

Extrusion & Compounding at NPE: Advances Push Efficiency Envelope
Blown film towers may have been scarce, but there was no shortage of new technology aimed at helping to make extrusion processors more profitable.

Extrusion & Compounding at NPE: More Output, More Flexibility, Less Energy
There won't be many blown-film lines running, but there is still much in the way of innovation going on in extrusion and compounding.

K 2010 Preview, Extrusion More…Layers, Output & Quality
In most segments of extrusion technology, the word at K 2010 is more.

Stretching the Limits of Film Innovation
The four partners who started FlexTech Packaging Inc. in Cincinnati three years ago all came from high-profile jobs with big packaging companies like James River and Jefferson Smurfitt.

Catch a Falling Company
Peter Schulz had recently retired from Hoechst Celanese in Dallas, and Richard Nurse was a consultant, when both were called in to help shape up BPI Packaging Technologies Inc. in North Dighton, Mass.
