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 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 […]
Injection molding flash is a part defect you can't ignore. Hand trimming is slow and expensive. Cryogenic deflashing is fast, consistent, and cost-effective.
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 PEEK plastic removes mold flash from parts made of polyetheretherketone (PEEK), an engineering thermoplastic that provides chemical resistance, mechanical strength, and dimensional stability.
