What is the principle of the cryogenic deflashing?

The idea for this article originated from a customer who left a message on our website yesterday. He asked for the simplest explanation of the cryogenic deflashing process. This prompted us to reflect on whether the technical terms used on our homepage to describe cryogenic deflashing principles are too specialized, causing many customers to hesitate. Now, let’s use the simplest and most straightforward language to help you understand the cryogenic deflashing industry. As the name suggests, a cryogenic trimmer achieves the deflashimng purpose through freezing. When the temperature inside the machine reaches a certain level, the material being processed becomes brittle. At that point, the machine shoots 0.2-0.8mm plastic pellets to strike the product, thereby quickly and easily removing any excess burrs. Therefore, the materials suitable for our application are those that can become brittle as a result of temperature reduction, such as zinc-aluminum-magnesium alloys, rubber, and silicone products. Some high-density, high-hardness products that cannot become brittle due to temperature reduction are likely unable to be trimmed using a cryogenic trimmer. Even if trimming is possible, the results may not be satisfactory.
