In these interesting economic times, it is hard to get the funding to replace molds and their associated tooling. It is understandable for companies to replace their molds as it removes several secondary operations from the manufacturing process. If funding is not available for mold replacement, then we have the solution to help keep mold houses producing parts on old molds.
As molds wear, seams develop and enlarge. During the molding operation excess material squeezes into these seams and flash develops. When the parts are ejected from the mold, the problem appears. Flash can be seen on the external geometry of the part along parting lines and around edges. Sometimes excess flash can even end up in inner dimensions due to through holes and cross holes. The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. offers deflashing solutions for the removal of flash from molded plastic parts.
First, we offer our deflashing service for the removal of flash from molded parts. Our company uses a form of deflashing termed cryogenic deflashing. Cryogenic deflashing utilizes freezing temperatures, polycarbonate media, and batch processing to remove flash. Rather than have several people remove flash by hand (which raises workman’s compensation through cut fingers) at slow speeds; we are able to deflash thousands of parts daily at significantly lower costs. Automation of our deflashing operation lowers your costs and allows your workers to do more productive things with their time.
Another option that we offer is cryogenic deflashing equipment sales. If you have a large enough operation and require deflashing from day to day then this may be your best option. We offer several models for cryogenic deflashing, from table top models to full size standalone units. These deflashing units are among the most efficient in terms of liquid nitrogen consumption available today.
Finally, if we cannot deflash particular parts then we will find a company who can. Through our many contacts in the deflashing and deburring industry, we will be able to find a solution for your flash problem. Many of these contacts are also capable of sourcing machinery if required.
Before we do any production orders of deflashing for your parts, we require samples. Through our sampling process we are able to calculate batch size and pricing. We also request that you include a drawing when sending a sample if possible. For imformation about the deflashing process take a look on our Cryogenic Deflashing page. So, call us today at 800-739-7949. We have the solution to your deflashing problem.
