Urethane Bars ? You’ve come to the right source!
Urethane bars and urethane bar stock are one of the many custom urethane products we manufacture. At Plan Tech we supply high precision urethane bars and are one of the leading suppliers in the United States for urethane bar stock. We offer a standard line of cast urethane bars up to 6’’ thick and 144’’ long with widths up to 12’’. All urethane bars are available in any color or durometer. A variety of polyurethane additives can be added to urethane bar stock to enhance wear properties, add lubricity, UV stabilized, or to reduce static build up. We offer the industries largest selection of high-quality urethane bars and urethane bar stock some of which include:
Tight Tolerance Urethane Bars
Urethane Impact Bars: Urethane impact bars are found in many applications requiring repeated wear and impact. Urethane impact bars will dampen the harsh slamming of a machine and often times hold up better than OEM replacements at a fraction of the cost.
Urethane Cutting Bars: Urethane cutting bars are very popular in the paper industry where abrasion resistance or chemical resistance is a key component of the product. Urethane cutting bars have the unique ability to resist most chemicals and have high-performance in demanding applications like repetitive cutting.
Cast Urethane Bars
Urethane Bar Stock: Urethane bar stock is custom made to your requirements for low-cost replacement parts. Made from high-quality urethane resin Plan Tech has several ways to produce tight tolerance urethane bar stock or low cast oversized bars. For 30 years we have been building our in-house tooling inventory to be able to produce urethane bar stock up to 10′ feet long, 1′ foot wide and up to 6” inches thick in any hardness or color.
Urethane Molded Impact Bars: Urethane molded impact bars are designed for high abuse items in applications like die cutting and paper printing. Cast from high-performance polyurethane material Plan Tech has the ability to mold urethane impact bars to almost any size or thickness with what we like to call our hot molding strip table.
Polyurethane Square Bar Stock: Polyurethane square bar stock is rapidly produced at Plan Tech on our custom polyurethane manufacturing casting tables designed to produce any thickness or size bar. Our table has a movable fence to accommodate any width or length required for the polyurethane square bar stock. Metric or oddball sizes are no problems for us!
Urethane Rectangular Bars: Some of the major advantages are their ability to form and hold metal without marring its surface finish, it also exhibits a high level of non-compressibility and resiliency. In addition, urethane rectangular bars have excellent noise abasement property, flex life and are tear resistant.
Urethane Square Bars: Urethane square bars can also be produced for other uses such as die cutting and bumpers which can be used for large industrial equipment. Plan Tech also produces urethane square bar stock that is utilized by shipping companies to protect delicate electrical equipment transit.
Molded Polyurethane Cutting Bars: We boast a 30 years’ experience of manufacturing high-quality polyurethane cutting bars and we are renowned in the industry for high volume production of urethane products at a fast turnaround utilizing speed and precision to ensure consistency in quality and rate of delivery.
Molded Urethane Bars: Plan Tech continues to utilize the strength of polyurethane to produce high-end design and durable molded urethane bars and products, making it the design selection for engineers. We mold non-standard bar sizes using an open cast molding process and in a lot of applications without a tooling charge.
Some major advantages of urethane and molding urethane bars are its ability to be abrasion resistant with a longer working life vs rubber or plastic. Urethane bars are also oil and solvent resistant offering vibration damping and shock absorbance. Urethane is most efficient between -20° F. and 170° F. Polyurethane bars are cast products which are superior to extruded thermal plastics that have become very popular due to its high load carrying ability. Our molded urethane bars are cast with high-quality thermoset polyester or polyether depending on the application. We manufacture cast urethane bars to custom sizing specifications.
Molded Urethane Bars
Plan Tech’s urethane bars can have a wide hardness range, with formulations from 20 Shore A to 75 Shore D. We also manufacture in custom or standard diameters, lengths and wall thicknesses. Our standard line of urethane bar stock will hold +/-.060 with the ability to hold tight tolerances by molding the bar to size. We also have a full machine shop able grind the surface of cast urethane bars to hold tight tolerances. Our machine shop uses CamWorks for 3 axis milling. Our equipment includes CNC mills, lathes, polyurethane grinders as well as a state of the art urethane waterjet cutting machine. Secondary equipment includes sheet metal, welding, grinding, automated cutoff, broaching and more. For over 30 years we have focused on using Speed and Precision to rapidly deliver the highest quality industrial cast urethane parts to our customers.
