Extrusion Lines for PE & PP Foam / Foam Machines for expanded films

Personalized, flexible and sustainable

FAP’s foam machine ia a twin-screw counter-rotating complete Extrusion Line for Polyethylene (PE) & Polypropylene (PP) Foam, robust and reliable, designed to work continuously, guaranteeing constant quality. The PE & PP foam machines are made adopting the most advanced technologies including the new high energy efficiency system; the processes are stable and easy to be run by the operators for 24-hour day 7/7, minimizing industrial waste.

Thanks to experience and high professionalism, FAP team offers complete "turnkey" project and services that include the design phase, assemblage and installation, start-up of machinery, staff training with know-how transfer.

FAP offers a wide range of PE & PP foam extruders that allows to satisfy all production requests, ensures foam productions from 120 to 1200 kg/h with densities from 15 to 400 kg/m3 and for sheet thicknesses from 0.8 to 30 mm.

Advantages & Extrusion Process

The direct injection extrusion process transforms plastic PE or PP pellets into expanded film (non cross link with closed cell structure polyethylene or polypropylene foam, can be 100% recycled).

The counter-rotating twin-screw technology and the special shape of screws allows to obtain the homogeneous mixing of the melt and the better control during the mixing process.

The exclusive and original designing of extrusion heads has been studied by FAP for excellent control of the material and its distribution inside before the exit.

The product comes out from the foam extruder as a tubular film, consequently to be cut longitudinally for its expansion and cooling on the supporting system and then be winded in reels. 

FAP has studied a specific reeling system “Soft Winding” which permits to have a full controlled tension among the reel coils, to obtain the same thickness of the internal and external spires of the roll controlling the post expansion and helping the right stabilization of the material.
