Reifenhäuser enlightens CHINAPLAS with “Extruder of the Future
At CHINAPLAS 2014, the Reifenhäuser Group presents its technological solutions for plastics extrusion under the slogan “Rethinking Technology”, including systems for the production of blown film, cast film, sheets, film coatings, monofilaments, strapping tape, wood polymer composites, as well as extruders, screws and barrels, etc.
Reifenhäuser Extrusion Technology shows an extruder study for the future that combines eye-catching design with innovative features. Some of these features, such as the new Energizer Screw for up to 20% higher productivity, are already available today. Other features, like the use of thermoelectric generators for energy recovery, offer a vision of what extrusion will be like in the future.
With its new ReiWood profile and matching line technology, Reifenhäuser Extrusion Technology is setting a new standard for the WPC market. The new developments lower production costs by up to 50%.
Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion and Polyrema jointly present their new features for more productivity, quality, and energy efficiency in blown film production. Presentations include the new cooling systems EVOLUTION ULTRA COOL and EVOLUTION ULTRA COOL FFS for up to 20% more output, the EVOLUTION ULTRA FLAT flattening unit for faster and smoother processing, as well as complete mono to 11-layer production lines.
Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating presents its new MIREX-MT polishing stack, which is based on the technology of precision machine tools. Thanks to the high degree of automation and precision, changeover times, and waste production during changeover, can be reduced by 80%. For the production of barrier films, the company is offering the new ReicoFeed 2.1 feed block. It provides control of the layer structure during production.
The new monofilament high-speed line by Reimotec achieves production speeds of up to 1000m/min. This high speed enables the production of very small deniers from 0.06mm. For the production of strapping tape, Reimotec is offering a fully automated technology for very high strengths that processes 100% recycled PET (rPET) material.
Reiloy Metall presents its highly wear-resistant screws and barrels for extrusion and injection molding, manufactured in Germany in lengths up to 9m. Proprietary alloys and production methods ensure the extremely high quality of Reiloy products.
