In just a few weeks, the Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. will be exhibiting at the MassPlastics 2009 tradeshow in Fitchburg, MA. The MassPlastics show will start Wednesday, October 21st and will end on Thursday, October 22nd. The show hours for Wednesday are 10AM to 6PM. On Thursday show hours will be from 10AM to 4PM. The MassPlastics tradeshow provides a forum for the Northeastern United States’ plastics industry. Exhibitors from both local companies and global corporations will be at the show, displaying the newest in cutting-edge technologies to enhance productivity, increase efficiency, and solve problems.
The MassPlastics tradeshow will take place at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel & Trade Center on 150 Royal Plaza Drive, in Fitchburg, MA 01420. The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. will be exhibiting at booth 313. If you enter from the front of the building near registration you would walk towards the left side of the building. We are located in the 300 aisle in a corner booth on the left hand side. Our corner booth is located at the intersection of the 300 aisle and the main aisle that stretches the entire length of the building.
We would like to extend free admission to any of our current or potential customers. I have included a link to the MassPlastics website, where if you pre-register now, you will receive free admission. Once you arrive at the show, you simply need to pick up your pass at the registration booth near the entrance. The link to pre-register and get free admission is below.

At the show we will be exhibiting the services that we offer to the plastics industry. One is cryogenic deflashing for the removal of excess mold flash from molded parts. The second offering will be cryogenic deburring, which is used to remove burrs from machined parts. These two service offerings are non-abrasive (they will only remove the flash and/or burrs) and are cost-effective, thanks to batch processing. Both services are also safe (your parts do not come into contact with liquid nitrogen and will not have any dimensional change) and are environmentally friendly. At the show, our third offering will be our dry ice blast cleaning service for plastic machinery including molds and lead screws. The process can clean molds and other plastic machinery to like new condition. Since the dry ice evaporates on contact as it hits the surface to be cleaned, cleanup time is reduced significantly. This service is EPA, USDA, and FDA approved making it a safe and environmentally-friendly way to clean. For molds in particular though the service is non-abrasive, so it will not ruin molds. Rather it will just remove any buildup that has collected in them. The fourth and final service we will be exhibiting is cryogenic treatment. Cryogenic treatment is an inexpensive cost-cutting service that makes tooling and molds last longer, while reducing fatigue failures. Cryogenic treatment promotes residual stress relief in metals, converts retained austenite into martensite (creating a more uniform crystalline structure), and increases were resistance. We have seen many part lifetimes increase by at least two times and often even longer. This is an ideal service to cut costs and reduce downtimes for changing tooling.
We would like anyone who is having deflashing or deburring issues to bring sample parts of their application. We can review the parts, see what kind of issues that you are having, and also run a free sample. The same goes for cryogenic treatment, if you have a few small pieces of tooling that you would like cryo treated, we can run those too.
Make sure to pre-register and get free admission to the MassPlastics 2009 tradeshow. Remember, we will be at booth 313. We hope to see you at the show!
