Milacron Partners with Trexel
Milacron LLC announced that a partnership agreement has been reached with Trexel Inc, Wilmington, MA/USA. The partnership agreement will allow Milacron to incorporate the MuCell Microcellular Foam injection molding technology into their injection molding equipment offering.
“Together with our partner Trexel, Milacron has proven the viability of MuCell in blow molding, co-injection, higher surface finish parts and high cavitation packaging applications. The light weighting, low tonnage, reduced warp and sink benefits of MuCell can now be exploited in markets that were previously not possible. This is a very exciting opportunity for both companies and we are extremely happy to be partnering with Trexel”, said Bruce Catoen, Milacron’s Chief Technology Officer.
Under the agreement, Milacron will receive the rights to resell the Trexel MuCell SCF gas dosing equipment directly to their customers under the Milacron, Ferromatik, Uniloy and Mold-Masters brands while transferring the operating rights under Trexel’s patents to their end user without any added fees or costs.
