Rethinking Technology:
Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating at NPE with a polishing stack.

Press Releases

Troisdorf, February 2015 | Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating will present a polishing stack at the NPE exhibition in Orlando, FL, USA from March 23 to 27. Under the slogan 'Rethinking Technology', the company will showcase their latest features and system technologies at booth W 3551 in the West Hall.

The success story continues:
After more than a dozen MIREX-MT-V polishing stacks were sold, the second design series will now be launched.

More than a dozen sheet extrusion lines provided with the new MIREX-MT-V polishing stack were already sold by Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating within just a few months. Mainly companies operating high-performance lines for the production of PET film are currently investing in the new system featuring a mechatronic roll set-on device based on the technology of up-to-date high-precision machine tools.

Arguments speaking for a purchase of the new polishing stack are above all the extremely short changeover times for film thicknesses, and film of a thinness unreached before: 120µm and less, depending on the configuration and production parameters, can be obtained in PET film production – with excellent tolerances for double-polished high-quality products. In the past, thicknesses lower than 150µm could be realised in the industry only by using special equipment. The reduction in thickness allows producers of blister and display packaging to generate considerable cost advantages.

The innovative MIREX-MT polishing stack technology was initially presented to the public at K 2013. Thanks to the polishing stack, producers are able to reduce product changeover times and rejects by about 80%, and digitally adjust the nip more precisely by a factor of 10 automatically during running production. All set data are 100% reproducible.

Following the outstanding success in the high-performance segment, Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating has now equipped the next polishing stack series with a mechatronic roll set-on device. The first line provided with a polishing stack of the MIREX-MT-HS design series will already be launched in the first half of 2015 so that the advantages of the fast and reproducible adjustment of the polishing nip can then also be made available to producers of PS and PP film. The first line of this type will be supplied to a European producer of polypropylene cups. Due to the lack of hydraulic systems commonly used in the past, the lines now meet the requirements for installation in clean rooms and thus satisfy the ever more stringent criteria in the production of food packaging.
