Rubber Expo - October 13 thru 15 - Cryogenic Institute exhibits

The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. will be exhibiting at the Rubber Expo 2009 & 76th Technical Meeting in Pittsburgh, PA for three days this month. The Rubber Expo will occur between Tuesday, October 13 and Thursday, October 15. On Tuesday and Wednesday the show will be open from 10:00AM to 5:00PM. The show will run from 10:00AM to 3:00PM on Thursday. We will be located in booth 1050 which is in the very back of the complex. The Rubber Expo will take place at the David H. Lawrence Convention Center located at 1000 Fort Duquesne Boulevard, in Pittsburgh, PA.

To visit booth 1050, simply enter through the front entrance and walk down the 1000 Aisle, which is located just a hair to the left. We will be at the very end of that row on the right hand side. The booth will show up in the directory under the company name, Cryogenic Deflashing and Deburring Systems. Unfortunately, our partners at Cryogenic Deflashing and Deburring Systems will be unable to make the trip this year to the Rubber Expo. However, we are happy to make the trip since we are located, locally on the East Coast.

At the show we will be exhibiting several of our products available to the rubber industry. One service includes cryogenic deflashing which is used to remove mold flash from rubber, silicone, polymer, and plastic parts. We offer our deflashing process as a service, but also act as a broker for the machinery that we use in-house. Another service we will exhibit includes cryogenic deburring, which is for the removal of burrs from plastic machined parts. We utilize the same machinery to remove burrs from parts that we use to remove mold flash. As a result, we can bring cryogenic deflashing and deburring machines in-house to fit seamlessly into your current operations. We will also exhibit two other services that can help the rubber industry. One is dry ice blast cleaning to remove any residue from molds that is unwanted. The process is non-abrasive, fast, and reduces cleanup time since dry ice evaporates when it hits the surface to be cleaned. Additionally, molds and rubber related tooling can be cleaned while hot, to further reduce downtime. The final service we will market is cryogenic treatment. Cryogenic treatment can be used on tooling and molds to increase their lifetimes. Cryogenic treatment enhances metals through increasing wear resistance, relieving residual stresses from the manufacturing process, and creating a tougher overall metal.

We hope that you can join us in Pittsburgh, PA at the Rubber Expo between October 13 and October 15. If you have any samples of parts that you would like us to review and run a sample process on, then please bring them to the show. We will make sure to complete a sample run of them upon our arrival back in Massachusetts.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact Ryan Taylor at (508) 459-7447 or send an email to Come and stop by our booth, remember it is booth 1050, which is under the name Cryogenic Deflashing and Deburring Systems. We hope to see you at the show!

MassPlastics 2009 - Nitrofreeze Exhibit - Free Admission

In just a few weeks, The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. will be exhibiting at the MassPlastics 2009 tradeshow in Fitchburg, MA. The MassPlastics show will start Wednesday, October 21st and will end on Thursday, October 22nd. The show hours for Wednesday are 10AM to 6PM. On Thursday show hours will be from 10AM to 4PM. The MassPlastics tradeshow provides a forum for the Northeastern United States’ plastics industry. Exhibitors from both local companies and global corporations will be at the show, displaying the newest in cutting-edge technologies to enhance productivity, increase efficiency, and solve problems.

The MassPlastics tradeshow will take place at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel & Trade Center on 150 Royal Plaza Drive, in Fitchburg, MA 01420. The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. will be exhibiting at booth 313. If you enter from the front of the building near registration you would walk towards the left side of the building. We are located in the 300 aisle in a corner booth on the left hand side. Our corner booth is located at the intersection of the 300 aisle and the main aisle that stretches the entire length of the building.

We would like to extend free admission to any of our current or potential customers. I have included a link to the MassPlastics website, where if you pre-register now, you will receive free admission. Once you arrive at the show, you simply need to pick up your pass at the registration booth near the entrance. The link to pre-register and get free admission is below.

At the show we will be exhibiting the services that we offer to the plastics industry. One is cryogenic deflashing for the removal of excess mold flash from molded parts. The second offering will be cryogenic deburring, which is used to remove burrs from machined parts. These two service offerings are non-abrasive (they will only remove the flash and/or burrs) and are cost-effective, thanks to batch processing. Both services are also safe (your parts do not come into contact with liquid nitrogen and will not have any dimensional change) and are environmentally friendly. At the show, our third offering will be our dry ice blast cleaning service for plastic machinery including molds and lead screws. The process can clean molds and other plastic machinery to like new condition. Since the dry ice evaporates on contact as it hits the surface to be cleaned, cleanup time is reduced significantly. This service is EPA, USDA, and FDA approved making it a safe and environmentally-friendly way to clean. For molds in particular though the service is non-abrasive, so it will not ruin molds. Rather it will just remove any buildup that has collected in them. The fourth and final service we will be exhibiting is cryogenic treatment. Cryogenic treatment is an inexpensive cost-cutting service that makes tooling and molds last longer, while reducing fatigue failures. Cryogenic treatment promotes residual stress relief in metals, converts retained austenite into martensite (creating a more uniform crystalline structure), and increases were resistance. We have seen many part lifetimes increase by at least two times and often even longer. This is an ideal service to cut costs and reduce downtimes for changing tooling.

We would like anyone who is having deflashing or deburring issues to bring sample parts of their application. We can review the parts, see what kind of issues that you are having, and also run a free sample. The same goes for cryogenic treatment, if you have a few small pieces of tooling that you would like cryo treated, we can run those too.

If you have any questions about the MassPlastics 2009 tradeshow, please call Ryan Taylor at (508) 459-7447 or email me at Also, if you have any questions or comments about samples or our services, please use the above contact information.
