Polyurethane Pinion Gears – Pinion Urethane Gears

Polyurethane pinion gears are supplied in two different styles. The most common rack and pinion polyurethane gears setup allow the gear to travel horizontally or vertically while ring and pinion designs will increase torque and allow 90-degree output shafts in a compact design.

Polyurethane pinion gears have a long service life compared to other types of gears for many reasons including noise abatement, chemical and corrosion resistance. Most common applications of polyurethane pinion gear are used in manufacturing, assembly lines, conveyor belt and printing systems.


At Plan Tech we have an in-house machine shop capable of making molds for polyurethane pinion gears as well as metal cores or hubs for high strength designs. The lower tooling costs of polyurethane compared to injected plastic parts with an increased strength due to polyurethanes ability to absorb an impact and return to its original size even after years of abuse. Polyurethane pinion gears also offer unique noise reduction properties vs similar materials in quieter operating machines with increased run time. Plan Tech can hold tight tolerances for encoded polyurethane pinion gears and can reverse engineering existing polyurethane pinion gears as well as prototype parts for new custom applications.


Plan Tech also has an outstanding team of dedicated employees with exceptional talents and
industry leading expertise. We also are very proud of the “company we keep.” Our customers include many Fortune 500 companies, most of whom have been customers for 20+ years. Their drive to become industry leaders has helped us do the same. Whether you are a start-up company or global leader, we can add value to your products with our strong engineering support, urethane polymer experience and constant focus on meeting all delivery requirements. Our rapid prototyping capabilities have also received particularly positive feedback – we frequently go from “Print to Part” in 10-15 business days!
