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 […]

The Five T’s of Cryogenic Deflashing Molded Parts

The Cryogenic Deflashing Process Cryogenic Deflashing is a process designed to remove molding flash created during the molding process. Molding flash can be found on molded parts along the parting lines, gate vestiges, and where pins and slides are located. In order for molded parts to complete their desired function, the residual molding flash needs […]

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 […]

Cryogenic Deflashing for Rubber Parts

Cryogenic deflashing removes flash, a type of surface defect, from molded rubber and molded plastic parts. This computer-controlled batch process provides faster cycle times, reduced labor costs, and greater part-to-part consistency than hand trimming.

Cryogenic Deflashing for Molded Parts

Cryogenic deflashing for molded parts removes mold flash from hard-to-reach areas such as cross-holes, blind holes, and other difficult geometries. During the plastic or rubber molding process, flash or flashing can occur anywhere that metal meets metal – especially as mold tooling wears. Plastic and rubber molders can remove these surface defects through hand or […]
