Cryogenic Deflashing for Plastic Parts

Cryogenic deflashing for plastic parts is an automated batch process that removes mold flash, excess material that affects surface quality and can cause problems with sealing, sealing, and assembly. During  cryogenic deflashing, molded parts are put in a perforated drum, subjected to cryogenic temperatures, and blasted with plastic media. The cryogen, a gaseous nitrogen, embrittles […]

Cryogenic Treatment of Tool Steels

The cryogenic treatment of tool steels reduces the percentage of retained austenite (RA) that remains after heat treatment and increases the amount of martensite. Using a computer-controlled program, cryogenic metal treatment gradually reduces the temperature of tool steels to -300° F and keeps them at this cryogenic temperature for 24 hours. By promoting the transformation […]

Cryogenic Metal Treatment for Motorsports

Cryogenic treatment of your metal motorsports components can extend parts life and promote performance.  The cryogenic metal treatment process uses a computer-controlled program that gradually reduces the temperature of automotive parts to -300°F and keeps them at this cryogenic temperature for 24 hours.  By doing this, cryogenic metal treatment promotes a transformation of retained austenite […]

Cryogenic Deflashing for Rubber Parts

Cryogenic deflashing removes flash, a type of surface defect, from molded rubber and molded plastic parts. This computer-controlled batch process provides faster cycle times, reduced labor costs, and greater part-to-part consistency than hand trimming.

Cryogenic Deflashing for Molded Parts

Cryogenic deflashing for molded parts removes mold flash from hard-to-reach areas such as cross-holes, blind holes, and other difficult geometries. During the plastic or rubber molding process, flash or flashing can occur anywhere that metal meets metal – especially as mold tooling wears. Plastic and rubber molders can remove these surface defects through hand or […]
