Trexel to Develop a New Technical Center
Trexel, Inc., Wilmington, MA/USA, has entered into a strategic partnership with SA Engineering, a new venture which has opened a new trial facility built for technical collaboration using state-of-the-art Engel injection molding equipment and the latest MuCell foaming systems.
The SA Engineering Technology Center (SA Tech Center) is located in Livonia Michigan and envisioned to be a collaborative incubator for developing leading edge technology processes and finding innovative and efficient solutions to reach customers’ objectives. The center’s specialists and partner companies will support customers in optimizing specific processes utilizing state of art injection molding equipment and technologies in a confidential environment.
The SA Tech Center will showcase five new Engel injection molding machines ranging in size from 285 t to 3500 t. Currently, three of these machines are MuCell-capable, and are equipped to run with Trexel’s latest T-series gas dosing systems located on-site. The new T-series combines a highly simplified user interface with unmatched gas dosing precision for reliable, repeatable, and consistent foaming results. Trexel’s North American automotive technical team is co-located at the center.
MuCell product development capability is available on three Engel machines; 285 t Tech, 660 t Wide Platen with core back, and 1000 t Wide Platen with core back. Trexel will also provide R&D and mold trial support for customers interested in evaluating TecoCell, the company’s latest chemical foaming product offering. These machines are already in operation, and Trexel has been conducting trials in the facility since early March.
