Injection Molded Products

Deflashing and Polishing

Injection Molding Finishing Experts

Injection molding is a process for producing parts by injecting a heated material, typically plastic, rubber, silicone titanium or stainless steel, under pressure into a mold. As the material cools the part is formed.

In the process, the injected materials enter a series of gates to fill specific areas of the mold cavity. It is these “gate” areas as well as the mold seams which create raised, unfinished surfaces on the parts.

ISO Finishing has developed processes to remove these undesired bi-products of the injection molding process. We can simply deflash or deburr the parts or polish them as a finished product for your customer. ISO Finishing has the equipment, media and know how to solve any issue of your molding process.

ISO Finishing works on products made of all types of materials. Contact us today at 1-844-623-7998 for creating surface perfection on your Injection Molded.

WORK WITH THE EXPERTS IN

Custom Development Strategy

There is no magic here—it’s precision. We customize each finishing process to fit our clients’ needs from start to finish. At the end of the day, we specialize in you. Our centrifugal barrel services are ideal for parts from 3mm³ to up to 9” x 9” x 41” and are custom tailored for each specific component.

Samples & Quality

We formulate a process for each product and provide our clients with finished samples at no charge. Collaboration with the customer is key. If something needs improvement, we’ll use the client feedback to adjust the process—not the standard. The result is a customized, consistent, and repeatable set of specifications for finishing your unique product.

Advanced technology

We continue to add state-of-the-art machinery, media and inspection equipment to adapt to the industry’s latest advances. Our methods have exceeded expectations by providing a better polishing quality and faster turnaround times than are typically possible in-house or as an outsourced operation.

Our Services

Centrifugal Barrel Finishing

Barrel tumblers work well for jobs requiring heavy burr removal. Centrifugal barrel finishing machines are also good for burnishing, rapid radiusing of edges, and heavy deburring. Removing excess material or polishing parts, remove burrs, improve surface appearance, polish and clean are all possible using centrifugal barrel finishing equipment.

Deburring

In the manufacturing world, deburring refers to various methods used to remove burrs, the residual rough edges or protrusions left behind after a part is produced. Burrs can affect the surface quality of manufactured parts produced where performance, safety, and appearance of a part is concerned.

Deflashing

Deflashing is the process of removing residual aluminum, titanium, or stainless material used in the manufacturing process. The deposition of small bits of residual material called “flashing” may appear in each part. The particles can be removed using a centrifugal barrel machine for a fast and cost-effective method of removing any residual particles.

Passivation

Our passivation of stainless steel system has been designed to offer our customers a one-stop solution tailored to meet the stringent ASTM a967 specification for the cleaning, testing, and passivation of stainless steel, titanium, and other metallic parts. Our relationships with local and national medical manufacturers and our expertise allow us to be a true value-added solution in passivation services to our customers finishing needs.

Polishing

The presence of burrs, parting lines from castings or other surface imperfections affects the adherence, continuity, and general durability of plated materials. Metal surfaces often require polishing and buffing prior to decorative plating. ISO Finishing understands the importance of pre-plate finishing. Polishing is not only used to enhance the appearance of a part, but it also helps prevent contamination of instruments, remove oxidation, create a reflective surface, optimizes performance and can prevent corrosion in pipes. When it comes to machined parts, smoother is better for reducing heat and friction.

Radiusing

Radiusing is a type of deburring that entails the removal or rounding of sharp part edges formed during the medical manufacturing process. Parts with sharp edges can be radiused to pre-defined specifications using centrifugal barrels, vibratory bowls and centrifugal disc machines.

Ultrasonic Cleaning

Ultrasonic cleaning is an environmentally friendly alternative to the solvent based cleaners previously used. Ultrasonic cleaning uses high frequency sounds waves, those beyond the range of normal human hearing (18 kHz), and an appropriate cleaning solvent to remove contaminants from parts. The ultrasound can be used with just water or be combined with surfactants to gently remove residual cutting oils and microscopic chips.
