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 silicone parts removes flash for improved appearance and performance. The causes of mold flash are numerous, but molders and manufacturers who use cryogenic deflashing can achieve consistent, high-quality results.
Cyrogenic deflashing removes mold flash from plastic and rubber parts for improved appearance and performance. There are three different versions of this surface finishing process. The first, known simply as cyrogenic deflashing, freezes parts and blasts them with plastic media. The second, cyrogenic tumble deflashing, combines the advantages of cryogenic deflashing with dry ice deflashing, […]
Dry ice blasting for parts finishing is a non-abrasive process that removes flash and burrs from individual molded or machined parts. Learn about its advantages, and when to use it instead of cyrogenic deflashing and deburring.
Molding defects reduce the surface quality of rubber and plastic parts. The causes include problems with flow lines, sink marks, vacuum voids, and surface delamination. Molding defects are also caused by short shots, burn marks, jetting, and warping. Flash or flashing, the formation of excess plastic or rubber on the surface of molded parts, is […]
