Cryogenic Deburring for Medical Polysulphone Parts

Polysulphones (PSU) are a group of high-performance thermoplastics that provide toughness and stability at high temperatures. They are available in medical grades and can withstand repeated cleaning with disinfecting chemicals. With their very low rate of water absorption, medical PSUs can also withstand superheated steam. In addition, these engineering polymers provide excellent resistance to high-energy […]

Dry Ice Deflashing vs. Cryogenic Deflashing

What’s the difference between dry ice deflashing vs. cryogenic deflashing? Both are used to remove mold flash from plastic or rubber parts. Dry ice deflashing uses compressed air to propel a stream of solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) particles that blast away surface defects. Cryogenic deflashing uses gaseous nitrogen to freeze parts so that mold […]

Cryogenic Treatment for Turbochargers

Cryogenic Treatment for Turbochargers

The cryogenic treatment of turbochargers can extend the life and improve the performance of turbo parts made of aluminum, titanium, magnesium, or stainless steel alloys. During this computer-controlled process, the temperature of the turbocharger is gradually reduced to -300° F and then kept at this cryogenic temperature for 24 hours. By promoting the transformation of […]

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

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 […]
