Founded in July 1989, Addex Inc. is a leading global supplier of high-performance cooling components for blown film production. Today, the company manufactures some of the most sophisticated technologies capable of producing plastic film with the lowest possible gauge variation and the highest possible output. The company is a leading producer of many patented blown film components and systems including manual and automated gauge controls, as well as internal and external bubble cooling systems.
Addex has worked continually to develop unique products that help processors increase yield and realize major raw material savings. Latest among these industry-leading innovations is ICETM, the Internal Cooling Experience – a patented modular stack plus enclosure – that when installed between the die and Addex dual flow air ring, provides high film-holding forces and peak cooling efficiency, boosting output an amazing 40-60%!
Addex’s EGC, External Gauge Control system, known for its speed and resolution, continues to beat the competition in head-to-head comparisons by our customers. The high number of control zones, 132-344, depending on air ring size, enables the system to address film thickness variations that other systems cannot.
Another unique offering is Addex’s Digital Internal Bubble Cooling (DIBC) system which delivers the fastest reaction time in the industry to ensure precise bubble control, helping processors to speed product changeovers and significantly reduce scrap. All these systems are simple, and easy to integrate into existing OEM blown film lines.
Addex’s broad range of high-performance components are found on commercial blown film extrusion lines throughout the world, providing top-tier performance and quality at a competitive price.
