In 1964, Hosokawa Polymer Systems was founded and known as Polymer Machinery. They first designed the press side, auger and scissor cutting granulators for the plastics Industry.
Polymer Machinery built the 400 HP model granulator, which was the largest granulator in the US. Shortly after, Polymer Machinery established a new division called Polymer Systems and introduce Dedusting systems to help with plastic dust issues.
In 1998, Polymer Systems was purchased by Hosokawa Micron International and is now called Hosokawa Polymer Systems. Since then, they have designed the Alpine CL series, Shurfeed and heavy duty granulators, PET and LDPE washing systems and heavy duty, single and twin shaft shredders.
