Next Generation Films, Inc. to Install its 2nd W&H 3-layer VAREX Blown Film Extrusion Line
New line will be among the highest output lines in North America with the capability to extrude up
to 2,000 lbs./hr.

LINCOLN, RI, January 2007 – Windmoeller & Hoelscher Corporation announces the sale of a 126”
(3200 mm) 3-layer VAREX blown film extrusion line to repeat customer Next Generation Films, Inc.
of Lexington, OH. The line will be installed in August 2007 at the company’s Lexington plant.

Next Generation Films installed its first W&H blown film line – also a 3-layer VAREX – back in 2001. 
After experimenting with technology from other suppliers, the decision to invest in a 2nd VAREX
extrusion line marks the company’s return to W&H as its blown film equipment supplier.

Next Generation Films was founded in 1994 and is a supplier of specialty films to a variety of markets, including food packaging, automobile, courier, manufactured housing and protective packaging segments. The 3-layer VAREX extrusion line sold to Next Generation Films has a customized high
output configuration with the capability to extrude up to 2,000 lbs/hr. This configuration will make Next Generation’s new line among the highest output blown film lines in North America. The new VAREX
will feature W&H’s MULTINIP haul-off with a working width of 126” (3200mm), the OPTIFIL P2 gauge control system with dual lip air ring and a MAXICONE C die with a 31.5” (800 mm) die diameter. MAXICONE C is W&H’s new compact die designed for the production of 3-layer films

Windmoeller & Hoelscher is a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of flexographic and gravure printing presses, blown and cast film extrusion systems, multi-wall equipment, plastic sack and bag making machines, as well as form-fill-seal machinery for the converting and packaging industry.
