Deburring Machined PEEK Plastic Parts

PEEK is a high-performance plastic that can be machined into tight-tolerance parts with excellent wear and abrasion resistance. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) comes in medical and industrial grades, both of which support CNC machining operations such as milling and drilling. Machined medical-grade PEEK is used in implants, dental healing caps, and spinal fusion, trauma fraction, and orthopedic […]

Why Medical Injection Molding Uses Cryogenic Deflashing

Medical injection molding supports the use of a wide variety of plastic and rubber materials. Examples include PEEK, polycarbonate, and LSR – just to name a few. During the injection molding process, excess material known as flash can escape the mold and mar part surfaces. The causes of flash are numerous and include parting line […]
