Nitrofreeze® Cryogenic Deburring and Deflashing Services Expand Capacity

MATERIALS: The Cryogenic Institute of New England Inc. announced the acquisition of a new cryogenic finishing system that will expand capacity for both its Nitrofreeze® Cryogenic Deburring and Deflashing Services. These processes are used by a wide range of customers in diverse industries including medical device, aerospace, automotive, and process control, among others. The increased adoption of these advanced techniques to remove machine burrs created in CNC operations and flash from molded parts has resulted in the need for additional cryogenic deburring and deflashing capacity at the company’s main facility in Worcester, MA.

Thanks to its larger size and increased capacity, the addition of the new cryogenic deburring and deflashing system has tripled the company’s overall production throughput.  “The new system has significantly higher payload than the first system that was put into service seven years ago,” according to Bryce Trani, the company’s Operations Director.  Regardless which machine is used, the Nitrofreeze® Cryogenic Deburring and Deflashing Process is able to protect the surface finish and critical dimensions of the parts during burr and flash removal because the parts are processed in a cryogenically frozen condition.

The company processes parts to remove undesirable machine burrs or mold flash for customers on a “job-shop” or contract service basis. Typical batch sizes range from dozens of individual components to hundreds of thousands per week.  The company’s standard turnaround time is within two days of receipt and fast turn service for prototype of other rush parts can be accommodated for a small premium charge. The proprietary Nitrofreeze® Processes are environmentally-friendly, clean, fast and cost-effective - especially when compared to other alternative deburring and deflashing processes.  The company’s expertise in cryogenic deflashing and deburring has recently resulted in its establishment of a proprietary Standards of Cryogenic Finishing database that it uses when designing custom process recipes for its customers parts.
