Extrusion Lines and Converting Machines
Polyethylene (PE) & Polypropylene (PP) Foam

100% Made in Italy. Since 1987.

More thant 33 years of global experience in design and assembly of twin-screw innovative fully customized extrusion lines for production of technical, flat, non cross-linked polyethylene and polypropylene foam by “Direct Gasing” process and equipment for foam conversion.

All FAP’s machinery are realized inside the Company under the direct control of engineers. The Extrusion Lines developed and built by FAP in the last years have brought important innovations regarding the production of PE & PP foam

complete extrusion line for foam sheet PE PP production

Thanks to great experience and high professionalism FAP team offers a complete turnkey project and services including the design phase, start-up of the machinery, staff training and know-how of extrusion processes.

Twin-screw innovative extrusion line for polyethylene and polypropylene foam production very low and very high density

New generation twin-screw extrusion lines

COMPLETE AUTOMATIC LINES: FAP offers complete project with full new generation twin-screw extrusion lines, machines for the treatment of granulated blends, extrusion gas controlling unit, high-precision gravimetric dosers, equipment for the treatment of the film and automatic winding units, equipment for foam conversion.

UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY IN THE MARKET: Custom-made design and assembly of extruders with production capacity from 140 to 1200 Kg/hThe extrusion lines are based on twin-screw technology that allows a better control during the mixing process of the melt. The extruders are divided in areas with various temperatures and pressure levels and are equipped with dosing units with a high precision and fidelity. An accurate study and research of the construction and implementation of the electrical units has led to a remarkable energy saving method. FAP lines are designed to function 24h a day and therefore built with high quality materials, which are treated for long-life use and a handling with minimum issues.

production of low density flat polyethylene and polypropylene foam FLEXIBILITY:
FAP lines can produce traditional and innovative foams and can be introduced in already exiting production. The vast range of application of materials, produced on FAP’s lines: building, transport, packaging, food. 

Expanded materials produced by FAP’s lines are 100% recyclable, and manufactured using technologies and production processes sensible to atmospheric pollution are not causing problems to ozone and minimizing industrial wastes. The final material itself starts with the idea of a basic product that can be developed, improved and finallypersonalized according to the specific requirements of Client.

Key advantages of FAP‘s Extruders are:

twin-screw counter rotating technology with new system of power supply efficiency (-20%);
– high production capacity and stable extrusion process;
low percentage of production waste;
– high-level control and management software;
– specific reeling system with foam tension control;
– extremely high product performances and versatility of final applications.
