Cryogenic Deburring

Cryogenic Deburring by Nitrofreeze

Parts that have received Cryogenic DeburringEven the most experienced machine operators can find themselves faced with unwanted burrs on their parts. Drilling, grinding, milling, engraving or turning can all produce residual burrs that require removal.  When these burrs appear, it is important to have a reliable deburring process to clean the parts back into spec tolerance.

Cryogenic Deburring offers a repeatable, high-quality response to burr issues. Not only does this process yield the most consistent clean available through programmable recipe cycles, but a batch deburring capability allows Cryogenic Deburring to contend with and often beat competing method pricing. The result is closer part cleans, wider profit margins, and a superior finished product.

Nitrofreeze is proud to be the premier provider of Cryogenic Deburring services in the North Americas. Professional, ISO certified service and fast turnaround times have made Nitrofreeze the go-to source for all plastic deburring needs.


The ProcessCryogenic Deburring basket

Our Cryogenic Deburring process utilizes gaseous nitrogen as a cryogen to freeze the parts in their basket containment while they are tumbled and blasted with a non-abrasive polycarbonate media. This process is able to remove burrs from difficult to reach areas including cross-holes, blind holes and other difficult geometries. Quality control for parts includes an incoming inspection upon receipt, an in-process inspection, a post-process inspection, and a final inspection prior to packaging.


What materials can we deburr?

Deflashed plastic

Cryogenic Deburring has proven successful in removing burrs from most plastics, with a demonstrated preference to thermoplastic polymers. Nitrofreeze’s has successfully deburred the following materials and more with this process:

Silicones, Nylons, PEEKs, Polycarbonates, Polyurethanes, ABS, Acetals, PPE (Polyphenylene Ether), Turcite, Ryton (PPS), EPDM, and many more.
