WOBURN, MASS. — MuCell Extrusion LLC has nearly doubled its assembly space by buying a 6,000-square-foot building next to its headquarters in Woburn.

The new building expands assembly and testing of MuCell Extrusion's supercritical fluid hardware, which now includes units that can handle injection pressures of up to 1,000 bar (15,000 pounds per square inch). Those units complement the firm's existing 7,500-psi units, which give precise control of gas at any output rate.

Microcellular extrusion requires extremely precise control of gas, often at a high pressure, said Mark Lindenfelzer, MuCell Extrusion president.

"Our business continues to see excellent growth in all of our markets around the globe and we need more space," Lindenfelzer said. "We expect to ship roughly 50 systems this year, spread just about evenly between our customers in Asia, North America and Europe."

MuCell Extrusion serves a range of markets, including blown film and blow molding, as well as sheet, wire and cable, pipe and profile applications.

MuCell Extrusion is a wholly owned subsidiary of Zotefoams plc in Croydon, England.
