Fakuma 2017 grandly opens today! At the show, Thomas Schmitt, Managing Director of Reifenhauser Germany, highlighted highly wear-resistant screws and barrels from sister company Reiloy Metall for extrusion and injection molding.

The company's technology offerings include powder production and processing, centrifugal casting, and plasma powder arc welding (PTA). Its screws and barrels are not only integrated in all Reifenhauser lines, but also used in other extrusion and injection molding machines.

Reiloy Metall produces around 24,000 units of screws and barrels each year, with up to 80% is sold to external customers, according to Schmitt.

Reifenhäuser has gone through a series of changes in the summer. First of all, the new business unit Reifenhäuser Digital was established, paving the way for digitalization of its extrusion lines and services in the Industry 4.0 era.

The new unit will act as an internal incubator for all other business units within the Reifenhäuser Group. It will be managed by Dr. Benedikt Brenken, Head of Business Development and Thomas Fett, Head of Technical Development.

Bernd Reifenhäuser, CEO of the Reifenhäuser Group, commented, "Digitalization offers us the greatest potential for innovation that we have seen in plastics extrusion for a long time. So founding our own business unit with its own resources and the possibility of establishing new ways of working was a logical next step for us."

After more than 30 years in the family-owned business, Klaus Reifenhäuser is retiring and therefore stepping down from the Management Board of Reifenhäuser. He will continue to oversee the business in his role as partner.

Dr. Bernd Kunze and Karsten Kratz have been appointed to the Management Board, which now includes: Bernd Reifenhäuser (CEO), Ulrich Reifenhäuser (Sales), Dr. Bernd Kunze (Technology and Strategy) and Karsten Kratz (Finance).

As Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Dr. Kunze will take charge of all technological issues within the Group, and in this role, will share responsibility for the digital transformation of the business.

As Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Kratz will be responsible for the IT and Compliance divisions, in addition to the Group's financial operations and strategy.
