Düsseldorf, Germany — Trexel Inc. was present at displays for four injection molding makers at K 2019 in Düsseldorf, and two them — BMB SpA and KraussMaffei Technologies GmbH — molded parts using the company's MuCell Screw Tip Dosing Module (TDM).
BMB molded a margarine container with ultra-thin-wall packaging on a StackTeck mold. KraussMaffei recycled polypropylene buckets to mold an automotive part.
Trexel's TDM will enable more users to implement MuCell, said Trexel President Brian Bechard.
Instead of requiring the use of a screw equipped with a center check ring, to keep the gas under pressure, molders now can now put the TDM onto a standard screw to replace the traditional screw tip/non return valve.
