At K 2019, Hosokawa Alpine, one of the leading suppliers in the field of blown film extrusion, presented its comprehensive intelligent tools and full PE solutions based on MDO technology to meet the two megratrends: Digitalisation and circular economy.

Digitalisation tools

Digitisation and networking within the production line are playing an increasingly important role for efficient, high-quality manufacture. The reason is that the more reliably the entire film production process is controlled and monitored, the higher the final film quality.

Dr. Holger Niemeier, Executive Vice President, Hosokawa Alpine, also agreed that digitalisation is a megatrend. “It calls for linking of machines for worldwide accessibility and machine intelligence. The digital tools, Hosokawa Alpine Isa and ExVis5.0, allow users to have efficient monitoring of machines in linked plants and analyse their data.

Version 5.0 transforms ExVis into a fully networked system that merges and centrally manages the data of all system components. The program also offers a wide range of smart options for daily work on the machine.

“The emphasis in developing the latest version upgrade was placed on user-friendly operation and an even better overview of process-relevant data”, said Dr. Holger Niemeier.

For Hosokawa Alpine Isa, it is a central digitisation platform to achieve smarter production. The application serves to combine, as well as view and analyse at a glance, the process data of all the system components involved in the manufacturing process.

“As a digital addition to our system portfolio, Isa sustainably enhances manufacturing efficiency and process quality in production”, he illuminated.

Full PE solutions based on MDO technology

Full PE pouches.MDO (Machine Direction Orientation) technology, which can be applied for different applications, is a key component in producing single-material PE compounds. “It used to be for niche products but now it’s becoming big due to circular economy. We have the technology for many years but now the market needs technology for circular economy and this technology offers a solution,” explained Dr. Holger Niemeier.

Full PE packaging solutions, i.e. PE films, can be recycled after their original use and in the circular economy reused for end products. This results in applications in which the recycling material can be used again on a similar level.

Dr. Holger Niemeier underscored: “Monomaterial packaging is the best solution if you want to increase recycling. There is huge interest around the world in such technology, as circular economy is a global topic.”

“A lot of people over the world are looking for solutions to have higher recycling rate. There’re new laws and regulations aiming to increase plastics recycling. Brand owners also announced that they want to be green and more economical, offering more sustainable solutions.”

In addition, the patented TRIO “Trim Reduction for Inline Orientation” technology from the company also ensures definite savings in materials when trimming the boundary strips. The new MDO 04 orientation line in combination with TRIO technology therefore fulfills high demands in terms of quality in film production and allows lamination and printing of full PE material composites.
