Reifenhäuser To Next-Generation PET Thermoforming Sheet Production Line

- Nov 07, 2018-

In 2013, Reifenhäuser released a high-performance extrusion line for the production of PET thermoformed sheets using the patented electromechanical polishing laminate from the MIREX-MT-V design series. This year, the brand continued to work hard and launched an updated series of similar production lines.


As always, the core of these lines is its proven synchronous “REItruder” twin-screw extruder, which is now in its third generation. The system combines a dry high performance vacuum pump with a working pressure of 5 mbar and a continuously optimized REItruder degasser that is fully compliant with the FDA's requirements for 100% recycled PET film production (NOL for Recycled Plastics #209) and is a food grade material. . The system provides all necessary statements required by EFSA to meet the technical eligibility criteria. It is the responsibility of the user to apply for the corresponding EFSA approval.


After five years of successful use worldwide, the MIREX-MT-V high-performance polishing laminate has also undergone a fundamental modernization update. The product can be configured with 3 or 4 polishing rolls depending on the system capacity. In addition, the axial crossing of the first roll can also be selected for the production of large width films.


The entire production line is ready to meet the Industry 4.0 standard developed by ReifenhäuserDigita within the group. Based on the modular concept, customers can measure which features are beneficial to their business activities and which ones are not currently needed. From "as simple as possible" to a simple, fully automated solution, the solution tailored to individual needs is part of the Reifenhäuser CSC portfolio.
