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

New generation twin-screw extrusion lines

Extrusion Lines for Polyethylene (PE) & Polypropylene (PP) Foam
100% Made in Italy. Since 1987.

Design and assembly of efficient production twin-screw extrusion lines for technical, flat, non cross-linked, low & high-density Polyethylene (PE) & Polypropylene (PP) foam with “Direct Gasing” process and converting machines.

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 Extrusion Lines developed and built by FAP in the last years have brought important innovations regarding the production of PE & PP foam.

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.
