With the motto of “setting the new standards” in the industry, Reifenhäuser Group, a leading supplier of plastics extrusion lines, machines and components, brought its innovations to CHINAPLAS 2018.

Bernd Reifenhäuser, Chief Executive Officer at Reifenhäuser GmbH & Co KG Maschinenfabrik introduced that the company responded to Industry 4.0 with its business unit Reifenhäuser Digital, which was established in July last year.

The business unit serves as a digital business platform, paving the way to the focused digitalization of its extrusion lines and services. It consists of five different fields, including Operation System, Performance Cockpit, Diagnostic Center, Enterprise Integration and Cloud Analytics.

“We are working on all five fields. The new Operation Center and the Performance Cockpit are already available for our customers,” said Reifenhäuser.

He commented that digitalization is a “magic trend”. “Digitalization offers us a huge potential for innovation that we have seen in the plastic industry for a long time. In the end, the machines should go intelligent and advanced without any help. Our goal is to realize intelligent production.”

According to him, the company’s sales were increased by 20-25% last year. He believed that the market is likely to remain positive in the coming year.

In terms of the market development, he observed that the Chinese market was very strong last year. The South East Asian and Indian markets also performed well. “These three markets are our main growth areas and we will focus on them in the the future,” he added.

At CHINAPLAS 2018, Reifenhäuser also highlighted the EVOLUTION Ultra Flat. This novel system allows producing films with improved flatness and ensures better printability and lamination capabilities.

As he introduced, the secret of the new optimized film flattening system is mainly its position within the process. While in the past flattening systems were arranged just in front of the winder, EVOLUTION Ultra Flat is installed exactly at the point where optimum processing conditions are available for flattening the web. This arrangement enables higher energy efficiency at the end of the process.

Further benefits are low investment costs and high functionality and flexibility. The heating-cooling rolls and nip rolls designed for independent speed and temperature control allow producers to obtain the desired flattening effect.

As a result, the flatness of lamination and barrier films can be improved by up to 40%. In subsequent conversion processes, the films can be more easily laminated, printed and converted into packaging products.
