Plan Tech, Inc. selected to produce thousands of urethane tires

LOUDON, NH., November 12, 2018 —Plan Tech, Inc. selected to produce thousands of urethane tires for the robotics industry. These custom molded tires are required to have an extremely tight tolerance and great traction properties that outperform rubber tires. While rubber tires provide better traction properties these specific urethane tires are required to roll in a very abrasive environment. The mechanical properties of polyurethane unique elastomer can be manipulated and separated through polymeric creativity making problem-solving easy with a high-performance ability that is second to none. The benefits and advantages of this material are limitless.

Urethane Tires are available in all durometers and sizes. These particular tires have a step on each side where a metal hub will be bolted onto each side allowing for easy tire changes when the urethane tires wear out. A variety of additives can be added to enhance wear properties or abrasion resistance. We can provide any hardness needed for your application or requirements. Custom sizes of polyurethane tires are no problem for us here at Plan Tech. Plan Tech VP Engineering, Kevin Healy said, “Plan Tech is able to CNC profile grind the OD of urethane tires in high volume at a rapid pace. This was a great part for us and we received feedback that our customer’s robots have experienced fewer breakdowns and a tighter tolerance per batch of tires!”
