Unique technology in the “foam” market:
revolutionary extrusion of polyethylene and polypropylene foam
The extrusion lines designed and built by FAP in the last years have revolutionized the production process of polyethylene and polypropylene foam. FAP is a company with more than 30 years of global experience in the industry. Following continuous improvement, research and innovation, FAP has gained excellent customer satisfaction in the world. The “foam” market affirms the impressive qualities of the FAP plants, extremely high product performances and excellent construction reliability.
The new innovative plants with the “direct gazing” and twin-screw systems produce technical, flat, non cross-linked, low & high-density foam materials of excellent quality, unique in the “foam” market. Custom-made design and assembly of extruders with production capacity from 100 to 1500 Kg/h with density from 16 kg/m3 to 400 kg/m3. FAP provides Know How of the foam production processes, which is the result of many years of experience acquired directly at manufacturing sites.
The demands of increasingly sophisticated and personalized products have led FAP to a continuous development of production in order to adapt to new needs of the global market.
FAP is the only manufacturer able to offer excellent quality at a competitive price for the final product. The extrusion lines are based on a twin-screw technology that allows the best 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 that ensure high precision and fidelity. An accurate study and research of the screws and extrusion heads, 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. Foam materials produced by FAP’s lines are 100% recyclable, manufactured using technologies and production processes sensible to atmospheric pollution do not cause problems to ozone and minimize industrial wastes.
A machinery designed and developed according FAP experience is a synonym of profitability and longevity of investment.
FAP offers a 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 foam and automatic winding units, equipment for foam conversion.
Long-term experience and expertise allow to provide a competent customer service, from the very first step of the production line’s planning until the putting into operation of the machines. Regarding the specific field of extrusion, in which FAP is a leader, the company guides and advises customers in order to achieve the best production profit for any kind of expanded material.
FAP guarantees post-sale technical assistance for the successful management and maintenance of the machinery, rapid supply of spare parts, immediate technical and production support.
FAP has specifically founded an Internal Technical Research Centre with the aim of developing new technologies and innovative solutions in the construction of machines for expanded films, studying new raw materials and new foam products with different densities and thicknesses, discovering new formulas and mixing expanding gases.
The continuous work of experts on innovation and improvements allows FAP’s clients to obtain a new generation expanded film, innovative and unique product in its structure.
