MuCell® technology: Microcellular foam cells
You need moulded parts manufactured with minimum warp combined with ultimate precision and the best possible strength? Then our injection-moulded parts manufactured with MuCell® technology are exactly right for you.
The MuCell® technology
This technology is a physical foaming process. A homogeneous compound is formed by enriching the plastic melts with nitrogen in the injection units. During the injection the gas expands in the tool and forms a microcellular structure in the plastic parts.
The result is filigree moulded parts with wall thicknesses less than 1 mm, without loss of quality or stability. This enables weight savings for components of between 6 and 15%.
Benefits of MuCell® technology
- Lower production costs
- Lower energy consumption due to lower injection pressure
- Shorter cycle times
- Greatly improved component quality
- Lower component weight
- Low-stress components
The MuCell® technology from ENGEL foammelt is extremely well suited for use in the automotive industry, electrical industry and in the aerospace industry, as these sectors need light, moulded parts, manufactured with very high precision and providing best possible strength combined with minimum distortion.
