Faster, quicker, and less expensive: Flat dies reworked with cutting-edge technology

Press Releases

Modernizing and optimizing an existing cast film line can work without extensive capital investments.   And a new business unit set up by the Reifenhäuser Group is proving exactly this: Reifenhäuser Extrusion Systems (RES) specializes in components for demanding applications and covers the following product areas: screws and barrels, extruders, flat dies, and extrusion tools. In setting up RES, the Troisdorf-based family company has brought all the expertise of the Reiloy, Extruders, Enka Tecnica and Extrusion Dies business units under a single roof.

Optimizing existing equipment instead of buying new plant

"Rework" is the name of the solution that enables customers to optimize their existing equipment. Customers can increase production output and react flexibly to current trends in the market without having to buy a new cast film die. "Quicker and cheaper than a new die, better than the old one: The most expensive solution isn't always the most efficient," explained Philip Neumann, Sales Director at Reifenhäuser Extrusion Systems. "Our experienced rework specialists are on hand to advise customers. Where it's not clear cut, they also advise against unnecessary new purchases." 

Reifenhäuser also reworks dies by of other manufacturers

Previously, the Troisdorf-based firm had only reworked dies that were manufactured in-house. Now, the "Extrusioneers" also offer reconditioning services for flat dies made by other manufacturers. "Our customers benefit not only from our first-class components, but also from our extensive expertise which means that we optimize existing dies ," added Philip Neumann

The company provides value with its worldwide sales and service network, extensive engineering know-how, and expertise in technical processes. All this from the point of view of economic efficiency and sustainability: The extrusion components are tailored to customers' needs and are offered at attractive prices, with delivery times in line with the market.
