Plan Tech, Inc. selected to produce thousands of urethane straightener bushings

LOUDON, NH., August 15, 2018 —Plan Tech, Inc. selected to produce thousands of urethane straightener bushings for one of the world’s largest automobile manufacturer’s. Typical construction of urethane straightener bushings is custom cast molded tubes with a special feature on one end of the tube to accept the matching part it will wear on. The material of urethane straightener bushings is also special with a blend of urethane and Armorglide. This special mix is essential for the operation of these bushings, without this performance additive the bushings would require to be greased frequently requiring downtime in the manufacturing facility.

This specialized formula makes for longer lasting bushing’s for our customer with less downtime resulting in an increased profit.  The cost savings has resulted in casting thousands of urethane straightener bushings of many different sizes and features. Other configurations of urethane straightener bushings are cast from high-performance urethane that is cylindrically shaped with a washer and bolt molded on one end for a simple OEM bolt-on application. Custom urethane straightener bushings also have a longer service life than most conventional materials. Plan Tech uses only high-quality material from world leaders in polyurethane material. Our urethane will compress and rapidly return to their original shape for years to come


Urethane straightener bushings are available in all durometers and sizes. A variety of additives can be added to enhance wear properties or abrasion resistance.
