Flexible, lightweight, and cost-effective, urethane offers many advantages over metal, plastics, and rubbers. Urethane can be molded to any shape or size and in any color imaginable. Depending on the application, urethane can be formulated so that the resulting part is incredibly soft (or “squishy”) or incredibly hard.
Because urethane has give, it offers excellent shock absorption. It bonds well with other materials, including metals, and depending on material hardness, can be ground or machined.
Summer tends to be a bit slower for manufacturers but at UI we’re staying busy (can’t speak for the dogs, however).
How we solved no crush wheel supply issues, down time and safety concerns for a global building products manufacturer.
If you need custom urethane wheels or rollers for your robotic application, give UI a call. No matter the application or vehicle type, we can manufacture what you need.
Manufacturing / business insight direct from our Sales Department
Global supply chain delays and interruptions have impacted many manufacturers. UI can help solve those challenges.
Introduction to David Wright, Manufacturing Manager; urethane covered bearings – the material handling workhorse; let’s talk roller recover
A material handling company needed a “crushable” roller cover that their customers in the field could slide on their conveyor rollers.
As part of our goal of “better, faster, and more economical,” UI has invested in prototyping, modeling, and testing equipment.
Urethane Innovators can produce custom urethane components for robotic applications, including mecanum wheels.
