Reifenhäuser Group unveils its latest technologies at K 2016

Reifenhäuser Group unveils… This year again, K 2016 attracts trade visitors and experts in extrusion from around the world to Düsseldorf. At the world's most important trade show for the plastics industry, the Reifenhäuser Group unveils progressive extrusion technology to international specialists under the motto "Setting The New Standards", and provides once again proof of its innovativeness. In this regard Reifenhäuser continues its strategy of "Rethinking Technology". The company has clearly matured its technologies since the last K show - with significant success, so it will present results at this year's K: "Setting The New Standards" stands for extrusion technology beyond the current state of the art.

"Setting The New Standards" is a clear statement of the world's leading provider of plastics extrusion lines and components. "In the development of products we keep on questioning ourselves. We constantly look for new progressive approaches and like to think outside the box. This is how we develop genuine innovations," describes CEO Bernd Reifenhäuser the corporate philosophy. The result is technology matured even further and new standards with clear competitive advantages in the production of lines for high-quality blown films, sheets, cast films, monofilaments, strapping tapes and nonwovens. "Our technologies will allow our customers to set new standards and gain a competitive advantage also in their industries."

Reifenhäuser underlines its technological leadership on a fair stand of over 1200 square metres in hall 17, C22: "We will set our competitive edge and game-changing optimization of line details successfully in scene - also without lines in operation, but with virtual highlights and a digital performance in all our Business Units instead," emphasizes Managing Director Ulrich Reifenhäuser.

The performance is continued in the Troisdorf headquarters: On over 5,000 sqm Reifenhäuser presents lots of know-how, an impressive technology package of a total of nine lines running in production on three open house days. Interested visitors can still register during the fair, including for guided plant tours.

"Our customers want the newest line technology for an efficient production, but more and more, they also take a broader view," says Ulrich Reifenhäuser. The customers must be prepared for the future. This is essential and the reason why we decided for a novelty on our fair stand: the "Rethink Tank". A kind of innovation corner, where Reifenhäuser presents innovations that are still in the pipeline. The idea behind: Reifenhäuser enters into more detailed discussion, wants to find out what is moving its customers and whether the company's developments are really in tune with the times. "For this we take our time and give room", explains Ulrich Reifenhäuser. At the Rethink Tank the Extrusioneers invite to talk sessions in order to look at new technology ideas from different perspectives - to lead the way for New Standards in the future.
