Engel Expands Cooperation with Trexel
Engel Austria, Schwertberg, Austria, has expanded its working relationship with Trexel, Wilmington, USA, by fully integrating MuCell foam injection molding units into injection molding machines in the Engel victory and e-victory series. According to company information, compared to conventional combined systems, the move has enabled both parties to improve the price-performance ratio of system solutions for foam injection molding.
Full integration includes both the hardware and the software. Since the compact control cabinet of the MuCell foam unit is completely enclosed by the guarding below the injection unit in the integrated Engel victoryMuCell system, it requires no additional space. The foaming process is built into the CC 200 control unit of the injection molding machine; it is monitored and regulated via the display on the injection molding machine. Another new feature is the nitrogen consumption calculator, which makes it possible to schedule bottle changes in advance. Since the MuCell unit does not require visualisation of its own, integration also cuts system costs.
Both companies developed the integrated solution through an exclusive partnership. Engel is solely responsible for global sales and service. Numerous victoryMuCell systems are available for customer trials in Engel’s technical centres around the world; training courses are also offered. Moreover, the company adds Engel victoryMuCell packages to its worldwide spare parts centres.
