A new Hosokawa Alpine five-layer, coextruded blown film line that produces polyethylene-based film for use in flexible packaging, including poly bags, has been installed in the vertically-integrated facility.

The material is first extruded and then printed before being converted into pre-opened flexible bags. Lastly, the rolls are installed on Sharp bagging systems located at customer pack stations.
