The Series III MuCell microcellular molding system from Trexel Inc., Woburn, Mass., has been teamed with “Variotherm” mold heating/cooling technology to produce smoother part surfaces. The Series III system produces small precision parts on presses with screw diam. of 40 mm or less. The Variotherm process from moldmaker Werkzeugbau Siegfried Hofmann GmbH of Lichtenfels, Germany, uses dry steam or hot water to heat the mold prior to injection and then cools the mold with cold water. Trexel says the ability to produce high surface quality is a new milestone for MuCell technology. Parts produced with MuCell and Variotherm were displayed in the Arburg booth at the recent Fakuma show in Germany.
