How can we further improve the strength of film? Where can we save energy? How can we support our customers and partners in product development? These are only a few of the many questions we consider here at the Reifenhäuser Group. In order to answer with solutions, we compare notes across the companies in the Group, provide line capacities for research & development, and challenge conventional ideas.
The development of path-breaking technologies and products requires adequate space for research and development. Reifenhäuser has invested over EUR 50 million in the past few years and has built the world's largest privately operated R&D center for nonwovens, films & WPC at our Troisdorf location.
Imagine being able to further develop your products without an interruption in your own production. With our technology center, we are able to offer our customers precisely this possibility. Reifenhäuser has installed a total of 10 high-tech production lines for nonwovens, films, and WPC; these are dedicated exclusively to research and development. Our customers develop new products here under production conditions, while their own production continues uninterrupted.
On occasion, our teams of experts at the Reifenhäuser development center even work in double shifts in order to support the research of customers, distributors, and raw material manufacturers. We place the line technology at your disposal and at the same time, offer our expertise for successful planning, execution, and evaluation of the tests.
Have the characteristics of the product improved? Could we reduce the quantity of material? For precise analysis of the materials produced, all the necessary measurement instruments stand at the ready in our two laboratories.
