Trexel Promotes Technical and Commerical Enhancements to the MuCell® Process at FAKUMA

Trexel will showcase new applications now produced using the MuCell® process, as well as to showcase new concepts for reductions in weight, cycle time and production machine size, all made possible by utilizing the MuCell® process, at this year's FAKUMA International Trade Fair, scheduled for October 18-22 in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The Trexel exhibit is located in hall A4, Booth No. 4007.

Several Trexel commercial and technical representatives will be in attendance at FAKUMA, focusing on the following major topics highlighted in the exhibit:

Trexel Has Eliminated License Fees - For more than six years, MuCell®  process users have not been required to pay license fees.

MuCell®  Process Now Offered by Leading Injection Molding Machine Suppliers Worldwide - The three leading European Molding Machine OEMs, Arburg, Engel and Krauss-Maffei now offer the MuCell®  process as a standard option for their molding machines worldwide, including fully trained sales and technical service professionals who know the MuCell®  process, can apply it and put it to work for their customers.

Design Freedom Using the MuCell®  process - The MuCell® process offers tremendous potential for weight savings (part weight reductions of greater than 20%) vs. traditional injection molding techniques. Application examples will be on display.

The MuCell®  Process Reduces CO2 Emissions - A study in the US showed that for a fleet of just 100,000 cars, Trexel estimates automakers that take full advantage of the MuCell®  process could reduce the carbon footprint of cars that feature optimized MuCell®  component applications by some  238.5 million litres of gasoline, along with CO2 reductions of nearly 65000 metric tons over the course of a 240,000 kilometer life span.

About Trexel and the MuCell®  Process: The MuCell®  Microcellular Foam technology from Trexel Inc. is a complete process and equipment technology that enables the production of high quality plastic parts with significantly enhanced dimensional stability, lower weight/material and reduced cycle time. MuCell®  technology involves the introduction of precisely metered quantities of atmospheric gases (nitrogen or carbon dioxide) in the plasticizing unit of an injection molding machine to create a microcellular material structure in the end product.  The creation of these microcellular structures brings a wide array of benefits including an increased part quality along with reduced production costs.

Trexel, Inc. has led the development of the MuCell®  Microcellular foaming technology and has pioneered many plastic processing solutions.  Process deployment as well as equipment is supported by teams of highly qualified engineers through Trexel subsidiaries in North America, Europe, and Asia.  For more information, please visit
