The Reifenhäuser Academy


New training methods and products for better learning.

Does my company need digital natives?
No! But we should harness the full potential of digitization to the benefit and profit of our customers. Today, machines have learning capabilities and are becoming more and more »intelligent«.

AR:DEL – The Reifenhäuser Academy designs new training methods and products for analog, digital, and self-organized learning, and also offers training courses. So that your and our employees can keep pace with developments.


What we aim for is the best of all methods, not just standard practice.

Since man-machine interaction represents a competitive advantage for smart companies, we train both trainers who have many years of experience as well as junior employees to become certified Specialists and Trainers in Extrusioneering.

Armed with up-to-date knowledge, exciting training methods, and learning materials, our trainers will turn your employees into line operation experts. In classrooms as well as on your production line. Personally. With how-to-do videos and in webinars.
