K2019: Reifenhäuser’s new tech centre showcases laser measuring for flat film

Extrusion machinery firm Reifenhäuser timed the opening of its technology centre at its headquarters in Troisdorf, Germany, for the K2019 show. The construction work and installation work was completed to fully modernise what it says is the largest R&D centre for plastics extrusion technology.

The centre houses seven high-tech lines for the development of blown film, cast film, polishing sheet, and nonwoven products. The new conference rooms directly adjacent also allow visitors and customers to view the test lines. A special highlight is that the conference rooms match the design and architecture of the main building – a miniature version, so to speak, with variable room layout equipped with modern media technology. One of the highlights is the digital connection between the lines and the Reifenhäuser Digital Business Platform.

Among the machines and lines showcased, Reifenhäuser presents a world first: a laser measuring system that detects film topography to ensure extremely flat film. The system measures film flatness in a closed loop automatically and continuously optimises production parameters. This guarantees both high energy efficiency and high process reliability. It achieves a visually excellent end product while significantly reducing the use of glue, raw materials, and ink, said the German firm.

Customers who use EVO Ultra Flat in their production are certified by Reifenhäuser and receive a quality seal. “The technology has become a genuine competitive advantage for users,” says Eugen Friedel, Sales Director.

Visitors and customers can experience production in operation, conduct trials, and develop line layouts and recipes in tune with their requirements in consultation with Reifenhäuser.

Friedel summarises the underlying philosophy, “For us, listening carefully to the customer is just the start of a good consultation. We provide our customers with support until they can start up production with certainty and as agreed.”
