Deflashing process. (Equipment).
A deflashing technique is available to the custom molded rubber industry. This technique does not require a low temperature environment, and therefore the temperature-related difficulties of cryogenics are said to be eliminated. Also eliminated are the chipping problems associated with feathered edged rubber parts that custom molded rubber manufacturers have had to put up with for years when cryogenically deflashing their rubber parts, according to the company. Productivity is said to be enhanced because scrap rates are substantially reduced. The Series HZ centrifugal barrel finishing machines are designed to deflash a wide spectrum of rubber parts and materials. The deflashing equipment is available in six models to accommodate large and small manufacturers requirements. The system is a very compact, extremely heavy duty construction and is entirely environmentally safe, according to the manufacturer. (Infinite Horizons)
