As parts come off the compression presses, the horizontal and vertical presses, they go to the final stages of completion.
|Deflashing parts assures product integrity and that no foreign material gets into the lies of customers processing systems. Parts are placed into a sophisticated cryogenic deflashing device for cleaning. With this special deflashing process most parts will become completely free of any excess material from around the edges of the product.|
|After deflashing each part is carefully inspected and, if needed, hand finished. Newman has a automated trimming machine that can trim the ID and OD with precision accuracy.|
|After molding, deflashing and inspection it is necessary with some elastomers to post-cure to drive off volatiles and to optimize compression set. Newman has several ovens that are used for this post-curing process.|
