Blown & Cast Film/Sheeting
Raven Industries continues to expand our capabilities. With the latest installation of an additional 7-layer barrier blown film line in-process and another line coming later this year, we are adding major capacity increases along with opportunities to design unique product solutions. We currently house the largest 7-layer barrier extrusion line in North America, pushing the envelope for wide-width multi-layer film manufacturing. We are committed to investing in the future with the latest technology advancements to further enhance our capabilities in line with our state-of-the-art core manufacturing equipment. Raven delivers full-circle manufacturing solutions by providing multi-layer blown and cast film/sheeting, lamination/coating, and custom converting and printing. Our manufacturing facilities include five locations spanning a 657,000 sq.ft. footprint and produce one of the widest ranges of size, material, and thickness in the industry today.
Our cast extrusion line is capable of coating a broad range of substrates and casting smooth or embossed film and sheeting ranging in thickness from 1 mil to 80 mil. Cast extrusion can provide a precise gauge film and sheet up to 110 inches wide, which is ideal for further processing in reinforced and non-reinforced lamination and many other OEM applications.
Our large seven-layer lines produce 1 to 80 mil barrier blown films and sheeting in widths up to a massive 32 feet in circumference. They also produce sheeting up to 80 mils thick (16' single wound sheeting) with optional surface texturing available. These lines house unique seven-layer dies manufactured with the latest extrusion technology and engineered to provide maximum versatility. Utilizing seven individual extruders, they are capable of processing the widest and thickest (EVOH, Nylon) barrier structures available in the industry. Other wide-width multi-layer films are produced on lines capable of reaching an impressive 40 foot width and a thickness ranging from 0.30 mil up to 80 mil.
Our extensive experience in designing film and sheeting has enabled us to offer a variety of products, each formulated to meet our customer's individual requirements in addition to our standard product line. We accomplish this through the guidelines of our ISO 9001:2008 certified management program. All Raven products developed and produced in our Sioux Falls, SD, Madison, SD; Brandon, SD; and Midland, TX facility are manufactured in a quality-controlled environment under our stringent ISO 9001 certified management system to assure we achieve complete customer satisfaction and continuous improvement in all phases of our business. Our recently acquired facility located in Pleasanton, TX is operationally compliant with our internal quality control standards and is targeted to start preparation in attaining ISO 9001 certification.
