Manual deburring is a time-consuming and labor-intensive way to remove burrs from machined plastic parts. At a time when good workers are hard to find, hand deburring is also an inefficient way to deploy labor resources. The use of hand trimmers, deburring blades, rotary deburring tools, and wire brushes can also contribute to worker fatigue […]
Precision aerospace parts need to meet critical tolerances that are sometimes measured in thousands of an inch. These machined parts also need a surface finish that’s free from burrs, raised areas that are created by operations such as drilling, milling, and turning. If aerospace burrs aren’t removed completely, problems with parts mating, seating, and sealing […]
Blind holes are machined openings that do not pass through the entire workpiece. They are drilled, milled or reamed to a specific depth but without breaking through to the other side. If a blind hole requires reaming, it’s important to leave some extra room at the bottom for chips. With tapped holes, this extra amount […]
Nitrofreeze® has joined the fight against COVID-19 by cryogenically deburring the rotary valve seats used in ventilators.
Cryogenic deburring for nylon parts removes burrs that are left behind by machining operations such as turning, drilling, and milling. Learn more about nylon deburring from Nitrofreeze.
