The 31st edition of CHINAPLAS in Guangzhou was the fitting venue for the launch of Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating to the China market. Reifenhäuser wants to be as successful at this event as they were at the K show in Düsseldorf. "We are looking forward with keen excitement to CHINAPLAS where we present our innovative line components to the Chinese and South Asian markets,” according to Philip Neumann, Sales Director at Cast Sheet Coating.
The company has consistently expanded and modernized its portfolio of line components. Visitors to the exhibition will gain an insight into the complete spectrum of Reifenhäuser CSC offerings. A special feature presented for the first time at K 2016 is being showcased again: The REIcofeed 2.2 feedblock. The new feedblock model received entirely positive feedback at K where this technological solution proved its efficiency in the production of barrier films.
With the REIcofeed 2.x feedblock the layer structure can be controlled and influenced while the production is running. The coextrusion feedblock enables film structures of up to 11 or more layers to be optimally adjusted with the line in operation. In addition, its efficiency can be significantly improved by the integration of a new small element: It allows the encapsulation of a multi-layer film inside the feedblock to avoid the need for an additional encapsulation device in the flat die and the use of an additional extruder – a space-conserving solution and a plus point in terms of efficiency. Film producers can use less energy and raw materials. "That is the distinct advantage, we can score with at our customers“, Mr. Neumann stressed.

"We are confident to get the same positive feedback at CHINAPLAS as we got at K. The recent plastics show in Düsseldorf was very successful for Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating, Mr. Neumann said. Since the K exhibition the CSC team has also sold several lines of complete new inline design for the production of, for example, drinking cups. The line concept meets exactly the demands of our customers since the highspeed extruder is even more compact and requires less footprint than before. Equally successful was the mechatronic polishing stack of the MIREX MT-H model type for PS/PP thermoforming applications exhibited at the K show. CSC has sold several complete lines featuring reduced changing times and the ability to be used for clean room production - a unique selling proposition that is increasingly being demanded by end users of food packaging.
“Asia and especially China are setting new trends in films and the related line technologies. For that reason, customer feedback on our latest developments is extremely important to us. In addition, we want to take the opportunity to discuss with our customers about new products and the steps needed to develop them”, Mr. Neumann explained.
Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating is shown at Reifenhäuser China and the Reifenhäuser subsidiaries Blown Film and Reiloy in Hall 5.1, Booth A61.
