To ensure high machine availability and the best price/performance ratio, we design all components to Reifenhäuser standards. The screws and barrels, i.e. the actual core of an extruder, always stem from our own production – for all models.
Reifenhäuser single-screw extruders meet the majority of product requirements – they are customized and efficient. But they are also highly flexible as they cover a broad range of applications and raw materials. At the same time, they are always custom-designed to meet special product requirements. And our modular extruder design makes customization extremely cost-efficient.
The main applications of our co-rotating twin-screw extruders in our Reitruder series are the highly energy-efficient and productive direct extrusion of PET ground stock or the inline compounding of polyolefines with mineral fillers. Their modular design permits us to react flexibly to a variety of production requirements.
Our high-speed extruders for processing PS, PP, and LD-PE are extremely compact. The high screw speeds achieve much higher plasticizing capacity compared to conventional extruders. At the same time, they have a significantly reduced footprint.
Refeeding extruders increase efficiency and sustainability in production by the returning film or nonwoven edge trim directly back to the production process. When a refeeding extruder is used, the quality of the end product can be increased compared to a refeeding of fluff or a regranulation process, since it eleminates the milling dust or additional thermal stress.
To meet your specific product requirements, we design tailor-made extruders for a wide variety of applications, such as blown film, cast film, thermoforming film, foam film and sheets, plates, monofilaments, strapping tape, nonwovens, blow molding, pipes and pipe coating, cables, profiles and much more.
All raw materials.
We can process virtually all plastics, such as:
Calculation, analysis, configuration. Reifenhäuser configuration experts develop customized screws and barrels combinations based on your raw material and application requirements.
To do this, we use our own data-driven calculation tools as well as the latest simulation programs.
The calculation results are then validated based on our many years of experience. If necessary, the configuration can be verified in a practical test at our technology center.
