First Monosandwich Injection Press with MuCell Foam Ability
German custom molder gets 800-ton co-injection press.
Sorcole GmbH, a custom injection molder in Hutturm, Germany, will be installing this year the first two-component monosandwich co-injection machine to have MuCell microcellular foaming capability from Trexel, Wilmington, Mass.
