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.
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.
No matter your application, we can make your part.
As part of our goal of “better, faster, and more economical,” UI has invested in prototyping, modeling, and testing equipment.
Topics: Designing crushable roller sleeves; producing non-standard wheels; a new urethane covered golf is ball being tested.
Urethane Innovators can produce custom urethane components for robotic applications, including mecanum wheels.
Topics: We now supply robot wheel components; challenge solved involving heavy duty support wheels; a look at our new casting area and office space.
