Trexel and GK Concept Intensify Cooperation

Trexel GmbH, Siegen, Germany, and GK Concept GmbH, Dresden, Germany are launching a new joint venture, “2Limit”, which pools their know-how and intensifies their cooperation in part design and tooling engineering for microcellular lightweight components. 2Limit will offer full-service engineering, supporting customers from an initial idea right through to a finished MuCell product. The company is offering a range of dovetailed service packages, so that customers can select services to match their requirements.

“Our customers can call on any or all of our 5 core competences – part design, part redesign, injection molding simulation, tooling design and engineering and tool procurement,” explains Roman Hofer, General Manager 2Limit GmbH, Dresden. “Alternatively customers can configure their own package of services. Our aim is to ensure that customers can exploit the potential of MuCell technology to the limit.” 2Limit unites Trexel’s expertise in physical foaming, built up over many years, with GK Concept’s extensive know-how in materials, products and product design, and tooling design and manufacture.

By setting up 2Limit as a joint venture, the two companies have taken their already successful cooperation to a new level. The companies have been working closely together since the K2016; their services can generate substantial added value for customers. “It’s important not to rely simply on foaming to deliver all the weight savings”, explains Roger Kaufmann, CEO of GK Concept, “Designing the part to make the most of the MuCell process can reduce weight by an additional 10-20% and in the very best case, where the change profile of the part allows it, it’s possible to achieve an extra 30% weight reduction”. Overall achieving 30-40% lighter components is possible.

Fakuma 2017: More in-depth information about 2Limit is available on the Trexel booth in hall A4, booth 4007.
