Trexel Inc.’s new Screw Tip Dosing Module is an option for the company’s MuCell molding technology.
The Tip Dosing Module, or TDM, is an optimized wiping/mixing module with reduced space requirements. It will enable more users to implement MuCell, according to Trexel in Wilmington, Mass.
“This new technology is a real breakthrough for us and our customers,” Trexel President Brian Bechard said. “It offers a flexible, modular solution and makes It easier and less expensive for customers to implement and realize the benefits of MuCell molding, and will work for both retrofits and new implementation.”
The TDM can be screwed onto a standard screw to replace the traditional screw tip/non- return valve. In combination with Trexel’s new high-pressure MuCell SCF injector, the company claims it provides significant benefits, including higher output and less wear, especially important for high-performance molding applications. Trexel said examples include high plasticizing for thin-wall packaging, or gentle material treatment for long-fiber-filled materials.
“This is important due to changing market requirements as foam molding becomes a more standard process globally,” Bechard said. “The trend is moving towards more high-performance, application-specific solutions.” MuCell is a microcellular foam molding technology.
