Why Medical Plastic Injection Molding Needs Cryogenic Deflashing

Medical plastic injection molding can produce high volumes of tight-tolerance parts for medical devices and equipment. During the injection molding process, however, excess material known as flash can form on the surfaces of parts. Cryogenic deflashing can safely, cleanly, and cost-effectively remove this unwanted plastic flash without affecting critical part tolerances. There are many other […]

Cryogenic Deflashing for Medical Silicone Parts

Medical silicones can be molded into parts such as distal handles for surgical instruments and dental tools. There are many types of silicone rubber, but medical grade silicones need to meet biocompatibility requirements such as USP Class VI or ISO 10993. Then, after they are molded, medical silicone parts need to have a finish that’s […]
