Medical Injection Molding and Flash Removal

Medical injection molding can produce complex and highly-precise components with part-to-part integrity across high production volumes. Whether the material is plastic, silicone, or another polymer or elastomer, medical injection molders need to avoid warping, sink marks, short shots, and residual stresses that can cause defects. Molders also want to minimize flash or flashing, excess material […]

Metal Deburring Tool vs. Cryogenic Deburring

Are you still using a handheld metal deburring tool to remove burrs from machined parts? Whether you’re using a blade, brush, file, cutter, scraper, or something else, manual deburring is labor-intensive and time-consuming. It’s also inconsistent and inefficient, especially with precision machined parts that have intricate features or challenging geometries. Plus, a handheld deburring tool […]

Rubber Deflashing for Molded Parts: Nitrofreeze® Cryogenic Technology

Rubber deflashing is the process of removing excess material called flash, or flashing, from the surfaces of molded rubber parts. The causes of flash are numerous and include parting line mismatches, improper venting, inadequate clamping pressure, poor sprue bushing support, and excessively low viscosity. No matter what the cause, old or worn tooling is often […]

Precision Deburring for Machined Parts

Precision deburring removes raised areas (burrs) that are created during the machining of close-tolerance parts. Unless these surface imperfections are removed, problems with sealing or assembly may occur. Whether the machining process involves milling, drilling, or turning, deformation caused by stretching and produces burrs. Even precision machining with CNC equipment can create raised areas that […]

Deburring Metal Parts: Cryogenic Deburring vs. Hand Deburring

Deburring metal parts by hand is a time-consuming way to remove burrs, small protrusions that can interfere with seating, sealing, and assembly. Manual deburring uses inexpensive hand tools instead of machinery or equipment but can only deburr a single part at a time. By contrast, cryogenic deburring is an automated process that uses specialized equipment […]
