              • Reitruder

              • The co-rotating twin-screw extruder.

                Use the Reitruder for the compounding of heat-resistant polymers and recycled PET flakes, or for direct extrusion in extrusion lines – to save raw materials for production on a high-quality level.

                Smart compounding, easy direct extrusion.

                Reitruder technology uses co-rotating screws. We have adopted this twin-screw technology for use in direct extrusion lines, mainly for inline compounding, and so combined several processing steps into a single one.
              • Bitruder

              • The counter-rotating twin-screw extruder.
                With Reifenhäuser Bitruders, you can produce pipes, profiles, sheets, pellets, and many other high-quality products very economically. Bitruders are the first choice when gentle material processing is required.

                Gentle material processing.

                Bitruders are operated with counter-rotating, intermeshing screws that enable the direct processing of powder. The technology is especially appropriate when it comes to the processing of temperature-sensitive compounds like PVC recipes.
              • Components

              • Thought out down to the last detail.
                In Germany, we develop and manufacture all core components on our own that are essential for the product quality. That gives us end-to-end control over the quality of our lines and enables us to develop customized line concepts for your individual product requirements.

                  Produce spunbond fabrics of high quality – even with low basis weights and at high production speeds. With REICOFIL® technology we provide the most energy efficient and stable process on the market.

                  The RF4 process
                  Because it works.

                  In the REICOFIL nonwoven process, polymers are transformed into endless filaments by melting and stretching, and then deposited on a wire mesh belt. The conversion of granulate into nonwoven takes place in a single production step.

                  RF4 lines
                  Type overview

                  We distinguish between three different types of spinbonding lines: the one-, two- and three-beam lines. The biggest difference is the greater line speed and thus the extra output capacity that extra beams provide.
                • RF4 Meltblown lines

                • Production of nonwovens from microfibres.
                  They are seven times smaller in diameter than a human hair. The microfibres of a meltblown fabric are perfectly suited for use in filtration, as wipes or as barrier layers in composite products. Whatever you wish to produce: We supply the right technology.

                  Two technologies
                  Meltblown production without compromises.

                  Absorbent, elastic, or very high filtration and barrier properties? We offer technologies for all properties. With our REICOFIL® meltblown singlerow and multirow technology you will always be able to produce the right meltblown fabric for your application.

                  RF4 Singlerow meltblown technology
                  Optimum barrier and filtration properties.

                  Multirow meltblown technology
                  Perfect elasticity and absorption properties.
                • Composite lines

                • Fulfilling quality standards in the hygiene and medical industries.
                  What spunbonded fabric and meltblown alone cannot achieve can be reproduced by composite nonwovens. Produce nonwovens with the outstanding barrier properties and excellent coverage of meltblown combined with the high mechanical strength of spunbonded fabric - inline in a single production step.

                  The RF4 process
                  Because it works.

                  Two in one: The REICOFIL® composite process combines the proven REICOFIL spunbonding process and the meltblown process in one line. With its high production speeds, outstanding production properties and a reliable process, it is setting today's market standard for nonwovens in the hygiene and medical industries.

                  RF4 lines
                  Type overview.

                  REICOFIL composite lines are available in configurations of four to seven beams. The mixture of spunbonded fabric and meltblown beams is customized to the product in question. In every line configuration, the meltblown nonwoven is enclosed in at least one layer of spunbonded fabric.
                • Downstream components

                • Directly influence product properties.
                  Long gone are the times when spunbonded fabrics were always smooth. Nowadays, with the right downstream components, very different nonwovens can be created: Thin, smooth, fleecy, water-resistant, hydrophilic. The new properties make spunbonded fabrics interesting for industrial use, as geotextiles, and in this way as an alternative for carded nonwovens.

                  Smooth nonwovens with high strength

                  Voluminous with great strength

                  Needle punching
                  Felt-like nonwovens with high strength

                  Very voluminous nonwovens

                  Hydrophobic becomes hydrophilic

                  Essential after humidifying
                • Applications

                • The right line for every application.
                  REICOFIL® nonwoven lines are designed and manufactured in accordance with individual customer requirements. Their possible area of application therefore is correspondingly wide. We have compiled both classical and new areas of application as examples.
              • Highly wear-resistant bimetal barrels and screws for injection molding and extrusion.

              • Highly wear-resistant screws and barrels raise the productivity of your production lines and improve the quality of the end products. With know-how, experience and the right technologies we reliably protect your components against abrasion, adhesion and corrosion.
                  • Reiloy screws

                  • Armoured flights, through-hardened, and with treated surface.
                    Highly wear-resistant screws will not just extend the service life of your plant. They will also improve the quality of your products. We can offer you all kinds of screws for extrusion and injection molding: 3-zone screws, multiple thread screws, barrier screws, vented screws, or highly complex twin screws.

                    Reiloy Screws
                    Always of the highest quality.

                    Screws with armoured flights
                    The flight is the area of the screw that is exposed to the highest loads. Armouring this area with alloys improves its wear and corrosion resistance. The armouring alloy is applied by using plasma powder welding. The armouring layer has a thickness of 1.5 to 2 mm. The entire screw surface is ion nitrided in order to protect the screw root and the flights. The surfaces of the screw root and the flights can also be hardchrome plated.

                    Screw diameter 40 mm - 350 mm
                    Length max. 9000 mm

                    Through-hardened screws
                    Through-hardened screws are available as finished components according to drawing in 12379 quality or in a PM-HIP version.

                    Screw diameter: 14 mm - 70 mm
                    Length: max. 2500 mm
                  • Reiloy barrels

                  • Armouring alloys for bimetal barrels.
                    Reiloy top alloys for bimetallic barrels provide optimum protection against wear and corrosion in your production. The blanks are absolutely torsion-free because they are manufactured on inductive centrifugal casting plants with integrated process control developed inhouse.

                    From blank barrel to finished product.

                    Blank barrel
                    • Bore finish honed to H7
                    • Outside diameter and length with machining allowance

                    Semi-finished barrel

                    Bore finish honed to H7
                    • Outside diameter and length machined to measure (if desired including feed opening)
                    • if needed with shrink sleeve on the discharge side

                    Finished barrel
                    • Finished product according to drawing
                  • Twin barrels

                  • Perfect for high-performance extrusion.
                    With a combination of different bimetal alloys, we apply our wear protection exactly where it is needed in your production process: heavy-duty wear protection for the high-load areas of the barrel, more affordable wear protection for less heavily used areas. A tight fit between the bimetal sleeve and the outer body improves the temperature control of the twin barrel.

                    Cost-effective regeneration of the wear protection

                    Different wear protection layers wear down at different rates. Our modular system allows you to exchange only the worn area of the barrel instead of the entire bimetal sleeve. We offer you this service for all common barrel builds.

                    • Reduced maintenance cost
                    • Longer service life
                    • Higher productivity
