Composite lines

Fulfilling quality standards in the hygiene and medical industries.

What spunbonded fabric and meltblown alone cannot achieve can be reproduced by composite nonwovens. Produce nonwovens with the outstanding barrier properties and excellent coverage of meltblown combined with the high mechanical strength of spunbonded fabric - inline in a single production step.


The RF4 process
Because it works.

Two in one: The REICOFIL® composite process combines the proven REICOFIL spunbonding process and the meltblown process in one line. With its high production speeds, outstanding production properties and a reliable process, it is setting today's market standard for nonwovens in the hygiene and medical industries.

Flexibility
Modular structure

Five beams, or even better, seven? REICOFIL composite lines have a modular design in terms of both software and construction. When one configuration fits the product, later extensions can be implemented easily.

Product quality
Low basis weights

Since the introduction of REICOFIL 4 technology, it has been possible to reliably produce especially light nonwovens: Nowadays, high quality uniform basis weights of 10 grams per square meter are standard with the REICOFIL process.

Process stability
Single piece dies of up to 5.2 m

Weld seams can lead to flaws in the nonwoven fabric. For this reason, we always distribute the melt across a single piece die - even at line widths of 5.2 meters. Your benefits: Even melt distribution, only one spin pump, and only one spinneret.

High speed
Production up to 1000 m/min

No other technology produces high nonwoven qualities at this speed: With REICOFIL technology, up to 1,000 meters of nonwovens per minute run from the wire mesh belt.

Sustainability
Lower energy requirements

With an energy requirement of 1.3-1.8 kilowatt hours per kilogram of nonwoven produced, REICOFIL technology transforms granulate to nonwoven with more energy efficiency than any other technology on the market. Our goal: better performance and greater energy efficiency with every line generation.

Efficiency
Well thought-out automation

Modern automation ensures great reliability and safety in the production process and simple handling of the line. At the touch of a button you can call up the parameters, or start up and shut down the line.

RF4 lines
Type overview.

REICOFIL composite lines are available in configurations of four to seven beams. The mixture of spunbonded fabric and meltblown beams is customized to the product in question. In every line configuration, the meltblown nonwoven is enclosed in at least one layer of spunbonded fabric.

SMMS
Composite line up to 800 m/min

SMMMS
Composite line up to 1,000 m/min

SSMMMS
Composite line up to 1,000 m/min

SSMMMSS
Composite line up to 1,000 m/min
