GK Concept Partners with Trexel

Trexel, Inc of Wilmington, MA/USA has formed a new cooperation agreement with the Engineering company GK Concept GmbH of Dresden, Germany. GK Concept, as a partner of the global MuCell engineering network, will support customer specific projects in developing MuCell lightweight components.

Physical foaming enables enormous potential of weight savings and improved productivity. To help designers and component developers exploit the full possibilities of MuCell technology, Trexel is partnering with design and simulation experts to deliver a complete MuCell Engineering solution. On request of the customer, Trexel can take over the project management and coordinate part development to the production stage.

Emerging from an engineering company, which was founded in 2012, GK Concept has established itself in a short time as an "Engineering Factory" and competent partner in the plastics industry. GK Concept combines under one roof the technical plastics expertise for product and component development, FEM calculations and filling simulation, through prototyping, and tooling design including the tooling and mold trials.

“This partnership with GK Concept gives Trexel the capability to take a much more active role in the entire part and tool design process in order to make it easier for our customers to realize all of the potential of our technology", says Brian Bechard, CEO & President of Trexel Inc. "The added value can be substantial: We have seen projects where we achieved 8-10% density reduction through foaming move to 30-40% weight reduction through foaming plus optimal part design.”
