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 […]

Remove Mold Flashing From Injection Molded Parts

Batch Deflashing to Remove Mold Flashing We often hear from molders and OEMs that they have mold flashing after their injection molded plastic and rubber parts are manufactured. There are many ways for mold flashing to form on your parts during the injection molding process. Surfaces where sliding and moving parts meet will wear with […]

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 […]
