The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. announces its capability of removing machine burrs from PEEK medical devices, including implants. CNC machines used in the production of medical parts can leave residual burrs. Because many of these parts are implanted into humans, they must be 100% burr-free while maintaining critical design features. The institute’s Nitrofreeze cryogenic deburring process freezes the part to maintain essential tolerances such as surface finish and critical dimensions. Once frozen, the parts are tumbled while cryogenic-grade polycarbonate media is blasted at them to remove the offending machine burrs. According to the institute, the service has recently undergone trials by medical device manufacturers to remove burrs from PEEK implants who have found the process safe and effective for removing complex burrs from these parts.
