There are two basic styles of cryogenic deflashing machine – basket and belt. The basket style was designed to process small parts and offers 100% parts containment. The belt style was designed for larger/heavier parts which require more room to tumble and a stronger rotation system.
Ultimately, the best way to qualify your parts as candidates for cryogenic deflashing is to have a sampling of your parts processed (tested) in a cryogenic deflashing machine.
The new generation of cryogenic deflashing machines uses the latest in technology offering options such as programmable controllers with numerous deflashing “recipes” for automatic operation, networking capabilities, bar coding abilities, message centers, SPC reporting, telephone modem hook-ups and RS 232 ports which allow the use of printers and report generation.
