“Focused on the continuous development of our innovative foaming technologies, Dr. Wobbe will be an invaluable asset to Trexel. We are so excited to bring someone with Dr. Wobbe’s knowledge, expertise and experience onto the Trexel team”, said Brian Bechard, President and CEO of Trexel. “I am very happy to join the team at Trexel, and eager to help them expand the use of physical foaming technologies. In the future, I see MuCell as a worldwide standard process in the injection moulding industry with broad appeal and use. So many parts that are produced today in solid should be produced using physical foaming, and I woul like to help Trexel realize this potential”, states Hans Wobbe.
Trexel has led the development of the MuCell microcellular foaming injection molding technology and has pioneered many plastic processing solutions. the MuCell technology provides unique design flexibility and cost savings opportunities by allowing plastic part design with material wall thickness optimized for functionality and not for the injection molding process. The combination of density reduction and design for functionality often results in material and weight savings of more thean 20%. The numerous cost and processing advantages have led to rapid global development of the MuCell process in automotive, consumer electronics, medical, packaging and consumer goods applications.
