At the show Trexel will make the premier global

introduction of their newly developed T-100 Series. The Trexel T-100 Series SCF (Super Critical Fluid) Delivery System is a state-of-the-art gas delivery and dosing system. The system is specifically designed for small shot size molding applications of < 140gr. / 5 oz.  


Live Demonstrations of MuCell


We are pleased to announce that NPE 2015 proudly showcases the most live MuCell demonstrations in our company's history. These applications boast high part dimensional stability with significant weight and costs savings. See these MuCell� applications running throughout the show:


"Cars Drive Easier with MuCell"


Center console with 6 different foamed parts revolutionizes light weight design

Grammer AG, Amberg, Germany, developed the center console of the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class car. It is produced using the MuCell technique, representing an impressive example of state-of-the-art physical foaming. Being a leader in interior design, the company laid out the processing units along the entire design chain according to a strategic approach, thus achieving optimum productivity and weight saving. Read more about this impressive application recently featured in Kunststoffe Magazine.


Trexel will participate in the "Plastics in Automotive 
Engineering 2015" Conference in Mannheim, Germany.

"The latest applications have proved that the combination of lightweight design and foaming no longer can be separated in today�s plastic industry. With parts designed with MuCell technology you benefit from lightweighting combined with higher productivity; producing results unachievable with molding such parts in a conventional/solid way," said Dr. Hartmut Traut, Business Director at Trexel GmbH.
