Plan Tech, Inc. selected to produce thousands of urethane spring locating pins and bushings
LOUDON, NH., October 28, 2019 —Plan Tech, Inc. selected to produce thousands of urethane spring locating pins and bushings. These dime-sized parts are critical components during high-speed assembly in a very large production facility. Many different sizes of sping location pins and bushings have been found in catalogs but none were the required shape and size for this application. These custom molded urethane spring locating pins help the alignment of a bolt being installed to property catch the receiving fixture. Without the urethane spring locating pins and bushings, production was damaging bolts and fixtures resulting in downtime and a high cost of repairs.
Polyurethane spring locating pins and bushings are available in all special profiles or durometers and sizes. Most urethane spring locating pins and bushings have a low tooling start-up cost that is capable of yielding high runs of production parts. urethane spring locating pins and bushings can handle high loads, high compression with long-term run durability. Custom urethane spring locating pins and bushings have a variety of additives available that can be added to enhance wear properties or abrasion resistance. We can provide any hardness needed for your application or requirements. Custom sizes of urethane spring locating pins and bushings are no problem for us here at Plan Tech. We offer a variety of color pigment options.
Custom cast urethane spring locating pins and bushings are used in many different applications including display cabinets. Polyurethane’s have superior properties over rubber products. They also can be molded into custom designs to suit your urethane bushings application requirements. Since plastic and rubber are biodegradable they are more susceptible to deterioration over time. Polyurethane is stronger and can last for the lifetime of your application. Plan Tech VP Engineering, Kevin Healy said, “This was a challenging design concept due to being very small parts. We were able to make a spin-cast custom mold all in-house, from design to production parts were provide prototype parts within 4 weeks”
