Research and Development

Do you want to develop new recipes and processes without having to use your own production capacity? Then you've come to the right place. At our state-of-the-art Research and Development Center, up to ten high-tech systems, test laboratories, and our "Extrusioneers" are ready to provide you with know-how and new ideas.

Films and Nonwovens

We cooperate with you on product development

Our Technology Center houses up to ten high-tech lines – all of them at the latest state-of-the-art to develop new blown-film, cast-film, polishing-sheet, and nonwoven products. Our modern meeting rooms - including the "Reifenhäuser Cube" – are right next to the lines to provide you with a pleasant atmosphere and a close-up view of the test setups.

“I put my heart and soul in the development of new technologies for our customers. At the same time, I’m just as happy to support their inhouse research and development projects. Fortunately, we can combine the two, thanks to our Technology Center and our know-how that extends from raw materials through to the final product.”

On request, our teams of exports work in multiple shifts to support a customer, supplier, or raw-material manufacturer during trials to ensure the successful planning, execution, and evaluation of tests.

Our two laboratories are packed with all the essential measuring equipment for the high-precision analysis of new film and nonwoven products.

What are your goals?

Your goals are our motivation

Where can we save energy or material consumption?

How can we provide you with product development support?

How can we further enhance film strength or recyclability?

These are just a few of the countless questions we ask ourselves within the Reifenhäuser Group. In order to develop solutions, we exchange know-how throughout the group, provide line capacity for research and development, and think outside the box. At our Technology Center, you can experience the latest Reifenhäuser lines in operation, run trials, and, together with our "Extrusioneers", develop line layouts and recipes to meet your requirements without interrupting your own production line.
