Polyurethane balls are found in many applications requiring repeated abuse and impact. Polyurethane balls will dampen the harsh slamming of a machine and hold up often time better than OEM replacements at a fraction of the cost. Plan Tech is one of the leading suppliers of polyurethane balls all Made In USA. Our custom polyurethane balls range in size from .75”- 10” and are typically molded from solid urethane with a through hole that will be fastened to the application. Polyurethane balls often times are supplied in a 60A-80A duro with a variety of additives can be added to enhance wear properties, add lubricity, UV stabilized, flame retardant, or to reduce static build up. Advantages of polyurethane balls are that they provide outstanding chemical resistance and that are also non-marking with a noticeable noise reduction vs. other similar materials.
We also have an in-house engineering team ready to take your sketch and ideas and help design and create new parts. For over 30 years we have focused on using Speed and Precision to rapidly deliver the highest quality industrial cast urethane components and parts to our customers. With our team of engineers with the latest machining equipment, we can cast custom polyurethane balls for your application from a simple sketch. Urethane has great abrasion resistance and excellent load-bearing performance. Typically urethane balls are made from a high-quality ester based TDI resin.
Urethane balls have a unique ability to absorb an impact and return to its original shape even after years of repeated impacts and abuse. We can also fabricate custom cores that may be molded inside the urethane bumper ball. This will add extra strength to the bumper ball and makes it easy to bolt on exciting equipment. We can come up with any configuration required for your application. We also have material suited for FDA dry application with a metal detectable additive can also be added for FDA dry food requirements. Most custom urethane balls are made with compression style of molding that will yield parts complete with little to none secondary operations for the finished part often times costing less than OEM replacement rubbers while exceeding the physical properties of the original parts.
