Urethane Gauge Wheels – Polyurethane Gauge Wheels
Urethane gauge wheels are commonly found in agriculture equipment that is typically supplied on a heavy duty rim and is coated with a tear-resistant urethane material suitable for outdoor conditions. The urethane gauge wheels used in the agriculture industry will ride on the earth’s surface to provide depth control. As the terrain changes the urethane gauge wheel will float and keep a set cut depth. Other uses in woodworking are very similar. Gauge wheels are an ideal choice to replace discounted or worn out gauge wheels due to its ability to be machined to any size required and its moldability. Existing urethane gauge wheels may also to re-coated when the original coating is worn out. Urethane gauge wheels will also outperform rubber wheels 3 to 1!
Polyurethane gauge wheels provide a long service life and often times are less expensive than OEM replacements. Gauge wheels will help take some of the shock and vibration out of the surface it is rolling over. Traditional steel or hard rubber wheels will transfer the shock and vibration to the equipment and operator that may shorten the service life of the equipment. Polyurethane gauge wheels typically are coated in a 95A Urethane that will help absorb an impact and return to its original shape even after years of repeated abuse. In some cases, we can improve the way your machinery handles by altering the durometer or hardness of the urethane to suit your application or material that you are handling.
