As parts come off the compression presses, the horizontal and vertical presses, they go to the final stages of completion.

Deflashing
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.
Inspection
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.
Post Curing
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.
