Better film, faster!
For over 50 years, Gloucester Engineering has
been a global leader in blown film extrusion. You can
count on Gloucester technology today, tomorrow,
and for years to come.
We are not your grandfather's Gloucester.
We can bring your line to state-of-the-art
performance through upgrades, retrofits,
new components, rebuilds and
Our products are backed by the
best warranties in the industry and
we stock more than 1,700 OEM
Gloucester Engineering’s single and multi-layer film dies provide flexibility and lower operating costs through modular design and high thermal efficiency. We offer dies with as many as nine layers in sizes specific to your demanding polymers and complex engineered film challenges.
Gloucester Engineering’s bubble cooling techniques provide significant performance and production advantage to OEM and existing blown film systems. Our experience, R&D, and innovation provide the highest value and longest running bubble cooling equipment in the industry. Our cutting-edge design will deliver value through higher output, improved thickness uniformity, and better product quality and consistency.

Gloucester Engineering's winders are among the most advanced in the industry. Our winders deliver precision tension control, forward and reverse winding, taper tension, and taper layon to provide superior control of roll hardness for perfect conformity. Many of our winders have been running for decades so you know our systems are built to last.
"Gloucester Engineering had a good sized booth, displaying one of their servo-controlled bag machines, one of their new high-efficiency IBC units (which I was not allowed to photograph, but I can say it is sweet), photos of their blown film equipment, and also a nice display of their newly acquired Pearl Technologies. Gloucester obviously specializes in blown film lines and bag machines, and Pearl specializes in and manufactures downstream equipment such as bubble guides, rollers, spreaders, collapsing tent frames, pre-nip chillers, and airless turning bars (which always require a spreading roll immediately after). The combination of Gloucester and Pearl are obviously complimentary and seems to be a perfect match."

Gloucester Engineering (Booth W6744) claims its new, retrofitable bubble cooling technology can boost blown film output by as much as 20 percent, promising a return on investment in fewer than four months.
The UltraCool III system allows less downtime and tighter film tolerance, Gloucester President Carl S. Johnson explained in an interview at the company’s booth. Internal bubble cooling with four, individually adjustable lips can be achieved easily in a retrofit that doesn’t entail replacing the cooling system bottom.
“With this retrofit you get better film faster,” according to Johnson. Retrofitting an older blown film line costs a fraction of a new system to deliver state-of-the-art performance
