Citing increased adaptation of its Nitrofreeze cryogenic deburring and deflashing services, the Cryogenic Institute of New England (CINE; Worcester, MA), has acquired a new, larger-sized, higher-capacity cryogenic system that will allow faster turnaround, larger lot sizes, and reduced cost.
The company first offered deburring and deflashing services in 2003, and they have become two of its most successful product lines. Bryce Trani, company operations director, says, "The new system has significantly higher payload than the first system that was put into service seven years ago." CINE notes that, no matter which machine system is used, having the parts cryogenically frozen during processing protects the surface finish and critical dimensions of the treated parts.
The higher capacity will enable the company to continue its standard two-day delivery commitment, says CINE's Ryan Taylor. Besides processing parts to remove machine burrs from CNC operations and flash from molded parts, the company also offers conventional cryogenic treatment, thermal cycling, shrink fitting services, and dry ice (CO2) blast cleaning. —[email protected]
