What you can expect at this year's NPE

Flat Film I Blown Films 

Discover PAM and EVO Fusion

Some of our highlights at this year’s NPE will be presented by our Business Units Blown Film and Cast Sheet Coating. They will showcase the latest technologies that enable particularly efficient and sustainable production. 

Precise, autonomous, mechatronic: PAM calibrates coextrusion adapters and dies automatically for best comfort, quality and productivity. The high level of automation makes the machine operator's work significantly easier, thus increasing line productivity and film quality. At our booth, we will show how our PAM option can be adjusted automatically and mechatronically - precisely controlled on a die.

The EVO Fusion technology makes blown film producers independent of highly fluctuating recyclate qualities and ensures a stable production process - even when processing low-quality input material. It upgrades recyclate qualities into high-performance blown films for simple end-uses, such as trash bags or mailing bags. At NPE, we will show you how this can work!
