OLBRICH Decorative Film IndustryThrough our decades of experience in the decorative film industry we know: Your sector has the highest optical demands. This is why OLBRICH has specialized in meeting your quality requirements 100 percent.

Our systems and machines for the decorative film industry are regarded worldwide as a reference for quality – among others by automotive groups and suppliers, artificial leather manufacturers for luxury shoes or bags as well as the major decorative film manufacturers for furniture, windows or stretch ceilings.

On request, we can also provide you with turnkey complete packages from a single source – from conception to extensive tests in our technical center to production and assembly of your machines. On request, we can also undertake complete factory planning.

Our wide range of energy-efficient high-performance dryers offers you optimum results for every type of film: OLBRICH systems guarantee high temperature accuracy, perfect reproducibility and uniform drying across the entire width. For higher line speeds, our highly effective and patented horizontal dryers with CTS-TP nozzles are the first choice. Of course, we also supply Exx dryers with the associated concentration detection and control systems.

For the dryer design of your project, we use both computer simulations and drying tests in our technical center. In this way, our experts determine exactly the necessary dryer lengths depending on your desired production speeds. The dryer temperatures typically are up to 302 °F (150 °C) during production.

Our drying systems are suitable for all types of decorative films: In the automotive industry, for example, for films used in instrument panels, door and side panels, sun visors, seat covers or hat shelves. 2D and 3D decorative films are particularly in demand in the furniture industry, for example for window profiles, door panels and furniture or ship interiors.
