The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. has expanded its capacity for its Nitrofreeze cryogenic deburring and deflashing services. The company processes parts on a “job-shop” or contract service basis and increased adoption of cryogenic deburring and deflashing techniques has made it necessary to increase capacity. According to the company, the cryogenic process protects surface finish and critical dimensions of parts during burr removal because the parts are processed in a cryogenically frozen condition. The process is used by customers in diverse industries including medical device, aerospace, automotive, and process control, among others.
Adding the new system has tripled the company’s overall production throughput. The company says the increased capacity will enable better service to customers with faster turnaround, increased production lot sizes and reduced costs. Batch sizes range from dozens of individual components to hundreds of thousands per week.
