Urethane Innovators offers a comprehensive pre-production engineering service focused on meeting the customer’s performance specifications in the most cost-effective manner possible. Whether you have 2D or 3D CAD drawings for the desired part or send us a sample, our engineers analyze the design for manufacturability to optimize product performance and cost.

We take a consultative approach to working with our customers throughout the pre-production engineering process to understand their needs and recommend customized urethane solutions that will be durable and cost-effective.

How we help you

UI’s pre-production engineering process involves consulting with you to select the right urethane formulation based on the application environment and use case; reviewing the core materials specified – whether aluminum, steel, or high-durometer urethane cores – for manufacturability and cost; and clarifying which tolerances are critical to the end use to balance performance needs and production costs.

Because we offer multiple casting processes – including open-cast urethane, spin-casting, and compression molding, Urethane Innovators’s engineers can recommend a process that fits the customer-defined specifications, resulting in the most efficient manufacturing of your custom parts.

Finally, our strict adherence to ISO 9001:2015 standards throughout product development and manufacturing ensures that our clients receive the highest quality products and that the services and products that they produce are compliant with industry standards.
