Reifenhäuser Single-Screw Extruders - Top Performance at a Favorable Price

Reifenhäuser single-screw extruders form the basis for high-quality plastic products. Their portfolio includes technical solutions ready for use in many applications. However, they also develop for you individual screws and specific screw geometries, depending on raw material and product requirements.

Reifenhäuser single-screw extruders allow you to process all common raw materials into a homogeneous melt, reliably and especially economically. All of their extruders are designed both for continuous and discontinuous operation mode. The individual heating zones are matched to the polymer melt condition and processing temperature. In this way they ensure that their technology works as energy efficiently as possible. Geometry and surface structure of the screws are adapted by Reifenhäuser to the raw materials and intended applications. All screws and barrels are manufactured in-house by their sister company Reiloy Metall on state-of-the-art computer controlled central turning and milling units. All barrels used in Reifenhäuser extruders are made of extremely hard wearing, corrosion resistant bi-metals.

Standard extruder sizes:

25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 105, 110, 120, 130, 135, 150, 170, 180, 200, 220, 240mm diameter
