First RF5 line starts spinning

15.10.2019

The first line of the new RF5 generation for the production of spunbond, meltblown, and composite nonwovens from machinery and components manufacturer Reifenhäuser Reicofil GmbH & Co. KG, Troisdorf/Germany, has successfully extruded the first filaments at the nonwovens producer PFNonwovens a.s. (formerly Pegas Nonwovens a.s.), Znojmo /Czech Republic.
The spunbond and meltblown technologies were totally revised for the RF5 technology. The line is also equipped with digital solutions from the Reifenhäuser Digital Business Platform. This paves the way for intelligent machines and intelligent production.
The line offers operators a productivity analysis that predicts exactly when a wear part will fail. It warns the operator of spinning dysfunction before it occurs and provides a troubleshooting guide. In addition, the RF5 line is equipped with an anti-contamination package providing an extremely high-purity end product. It also reduces noise, which improves working conditions for operators.
When it comes to sustainability, Reicofil has also tuned energy consumption for efficiency. The Blue Package reduces energy consumption to achieve greater sustainability in production. For example, the extruders and calenders are specially insulated and the fans are equipped with high-efficiency motors.
