Founded in July 1989, Addex Inc. is a leading global supplier of high-performance 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, the highest possible output, without camber, and with high flatness. The company is a leading producer of many patented blown film components and systems including manual and automated gauge controls, internal bubble cooling systems and bubble cages, and air rings.

At a time when resin prices are high and yield and scrap reduction is a major concern, Addex has worked continually to develop unique products that help processors increase yield and realize major raw material savings. Among these industry-leading innovations are two automatic gauge control systems that boast the highest number of control zones versus competitive systems on the market today.

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.
