Urethane Bushings? You’ve come to the right source!
Urethane bushings are manufactured at Plan Tech from simple ID/OD configurations to complicated machined assemblies. Our durable custom industrial urethane bushings can be machined and assembled into products or molded and cast into place using our proven techniques for adhesion promotion. The custom urethane bushings we manufacture have been used in vibration isolation applications, suspensions, mountings and a wide variety of other applications. We offer many types of high-quality urethane bushings:
Custom Urethane Suspension Bushings: Custom urethane suspension bushings are not only found in most of the cars we drive today but in most heavy equipment as well due to the ability for urethane to outlast rubber 3:1.
Urethane Control Arm Bushings: Urethane control arm bushings also know as “A-arm bushings” are installed in the steel rod that connects the hub to the vehicle. Made from a superior high-quality urethane prepolymer the urethane control arm bushings will last for many years.
Polyurethane Suspension Bushings: Polyurethane suspension bushings have been used in the automobile industries as well as industrial applications. Polyurethane is an ideal choice over rubber as polyurethane will outperform rubber on an average of 3 to 1.
Polyurethane Motor Mount Bushings: Polyurethane motor mount bushings are found in many applications requiring vibration protection to reduce impact and abuse to the machine and operator. Polyurethane motor mount bushings will dampen the harsh slamming of a machine and hold up often times better than OEM replacements at a fraction of the cost.
Polyurethane Spherical Bushings: Some common advantages of polyurethane spherical bushings are that they provide outstanding chemical resistance and are also non-marking with a noticeable noise reduction vs other similar materials. Polyurethane spherical bushings have great abrasion resistance and excellent load bearing performance.
Tight Tolerance Urethane Bushings
Quantities for urethane bushings range from 1 to 100,000 are within our capabilities.
Some polyurethane bushing advantages are:
- High-load bearing
- High Compression Set
- High tear and cut resistant
- Resistant to water, grease, oil and debris
- Abrasion resistance
We offer a variety of color pigment options. Custom cast bushings are used in industrial equipment applications because of polyurethane’s 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.
Our engineering department can turn your idea, sketch, drawing or CAD file into custom urethane parts. We will reverse engineer to recreate any urethane bushings for production or one-off urethane pieces. For over 30 years we have focused on using Speed and Precision to rapidly deliver the highest quality industrial cast urethane bushings and parts to our customers. The engineering department uses SolidWorks and 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. We offer complete manufacturing capability for the inserts or cores required for your parts and provide one-stop shopping for all of your custom cast urethane bushings. We routinely perform tests according to an established set of standards provided by an accredited testing organization such as the Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) who define the procedures in detail.
