Business Description:
 : OLBRICH GmbH with its subsidiaries Polytype Converting GmbH and R+S Automotive GmbH form today´s OLBRICH Group with close to 900 employees in their global network of facilities.

OLBRICH is a leading production machinery and equipment manufacturer of your web-fed products, such as papers, films and foils as well as wall coverings, floor coverings and technical textiles. Our technologies include Coating, Drying, Laminating, Embossing, Calendering, Printing, Lacquering, Winding and Drives & Controls.

This year, our focus is on digital printing technology: our unique inkjet printing technology in cooperation with Ricoh is particularly suitable for decorative products such as wallcoverings, decorative films, floor coverings and similar PVC-based products. No special ink receiving layers, pre-coatings or other pre-treatments of the printing substrate are necessary. The ink is absorbed by the wet plastisol and embedded in it. An integration into an existing production line is possible as well as an off-line solution.
