E-shots Web-exclusive: MuCell motors along

A global supplier of molded HVAC module housing components for prestigious marques, such as the Audi A8, the BMW 7 Series, and the Chrysler 300, has adapted MuCell microcellular process technology, according to sources at Trexel Inc. (Woburn, MA), MuCell's global supplier. Behr GmbH & Co. LG (Stuttgart, Germany) reportedly uses MuCell to reduce part weights by up to 10%, improve part quality, and reduce time to market.

Behr began using the MuCell process at its Neustadt, Germany facility last May. It produces air-conditioning systems in Neustadt.“Automotive Tier Ones seek to maximize production efficiencies, reduce weight, and avoid program delays. Products produced with Trexel's MuCell process exhibit tighter component tolerances and 50-70% improvement in key quality measures,” says David Bernstein, Trexel's president and CEO. “As a result, the MuCell process enables manufacturers to improve their product quality while containing costs.”
