Produce spunbond fabrics of high quality – even with low basis weights and at high production speeds. With REICOFIL® technology we provide the most energy efficient and stable process on the market.


The RF4 process
Because it works.

In the REICOFIL nonwoven process, polymers are transformed into endless filaments by melting and stretching, and then deposited on a wire mesh belt. The conversion of granulate into nonwoven takes place in a single production step.

Best discharge
Closed system

REICOFIL is the only nonwoven technology on the market to utilize a closed spinning process. The filaments only come into contact with the surrounding air just before discharge. The result: The most stable nonwoven process on the market and a high product quality that easily meets the demands of the hygiene industry.

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.

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.

Automations

Sustainability
Higher energy efficiency

With an energy requirement of 1-1.2 kilowatt h/kg 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.

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.

Flexibility
Simple process checks

Line configuration, raw material, speed, throughput: During production, you can adjust the process parameters to directly influence the nonwoven properties without interfering with the process. We also provide different downstream components for subsequent treatment.


RF4 lines
Type overview

We distinguish between three different types of spinbonding lines: the one-, two- and three-beam lines. The biggest difference is the greater line speed and thus the extra output capacity that extra beams provide.

Single beam spundbond line
For production speeds of up to 300 m/min

Double beam spunbond line
For production speeds of up to 500 m/min

Three-beam spunbond line
For production speeds of up to 650 m/min
