What is MuCell®?

MuCell® technology is an established injection moulding process for producing plastic parts based on microcellular foam structures, which are increasingly being used in the automotive industry, in white goods and other electrotechnical products.
The microcellular structure typical of the MuCell® process reduces internal stresses and thus minimises the risk of subsequent distortion in the component. In addition, the density, material usage and weight of the component are reduced by up to ten per cent with the same or improved material characteristics. The high dimensional stability of the components leads ultimately to an increased product life.

What does Schlemmer offer?

Before the design phase, the experts of the Schlemmer Group analyse each component intensively, calculate the investment costs for the customer as well as the duration of the amortisation phase. Subsequently, prototypes are developed which, in coordination with the customer, are made ready for the start of production. Schlemmer always produces the components at its own production facilities, which means that no additional investments in machinery are necessary for the customer. With 27 production sites worldwide, Schlemmer is in an excellent geographic position to supply all major industrial markets worldwide with high-quality MuCell® components.

Hall 6, Stand 6221
