Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating

Highlights of a success story

After the first extruder was built in 1948, it did not take long before the development of complete plastics extrusion lines followed. With our know-how and passion, we have since repeatedly breathed new life into the plastics industry with our innovations and further development of our technology.

Anton Reifenhäuser establishes the Reifenhäuser forge in Troisdorf.

The first Reifenhäuser extruder was built. The machine had a screw diameter of 30 mm and was immediately received with great enthusiasm by the upcoming plastics processing industry.

The development of 2-layer coextruded film was Reifenhäuser's contribution to the growing interest that the packaging industry was showing in PE film applications. This special film led to the manufacturing and implementation of milk pouches for fresh milk.

In the mid-70s, the next project that was tackled was the development of an extrusion technique for manufacturing highly transparent sheets made of PC and PMMA. Reifenhäuser set new standards in optical quality by developing horizontally aligned polishing rolls, in conjunction with new drive systems for the rolls.

Translator bolts that are integrated into a cast film die control the film thickness. "Translator bolts" are individual control elements that make use of the piezoelectric effect. They were invented by Reifenhäuser in 1984.

The coextrusion adapter, located upstream of the sheet die, is a patented design with adjustable sliders to influence the individual layer thickness distribution. Reifenhäuser has been implementing this adapter in coextrusion processes since 1985, to improve the quality of cast film and thermoforming sheet in multilayer structures.

The core idea of this new technology is combining and stretching a breathable film/non-woven composite. In this process, the various production steps of known techniques are combined as required.

At the beginning of the new fiscal year on July 1, 2006, the activities of all film divisions were pooled in the newly established Reifenhäuser EXTRUSION GmbH & Co. KG. Products

Cast PP film can be produced on a MIDEX-F rotary arm winder with a speed of 460m/min. This line concept combines product quality, productivity and economic efficiency in an ideal manner.

Reifenhäuser celebrates it's 100th anniversary.

Reifenhäuser Extrusion is renamed as Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating and focuses on cast film lines, thermoforming sheet lines, extrusion coating lines and components. as of now. The business unit Extrusion Center is spun off into an individual company - Reifenhäuser Extrusion Technology.
