Urethane molded bearings with hub are coated with urethane and adhered by our special processing techniques on the OD. Custom urethane molded bearings feature a smooth urethane surface cast directly on precision-sealed ball bearings. We can mold directly to the outer race or to the hub with a pressed in polyurethane bearing that Plan Tech can supply complete if needed. Tight tolerance or large molded bearings with hub are no problem for us. They provide quiet, non-marring operation with excellent abrasion resistance and durability. Molded hubs are common to have a key-way where it is bolted onto a shaft to be driven or a bearing pressed into the hub.
Urethane Molded Bearings
Urethane molded bearings are used in a variety of applications including film drive wheels to drive tires for production lines, rollers for woodworking mills. Our engineering department can duplicate any hub and our experienced manufacturing team can coat your custom molded bearings. We can also strip your existing hub with excellent lead times and little to no tooling charges in most cases due to our ability to machine the part afterward in our manufacturing facility. We can match any existing material or add any requested changes to your part.
The molded bearings feature a smooth urethane surface cast directly on precision sealed ball bearings. Covered polyurethane bearings are used anywhere there is a product or part movement. These versatile urethane bearings are used in the manufacturing process. Plan Tech has both single urethane molded bearings and double urethane molded bearings in inch and metric sizes. We are a leader in manufacturing custom urethane molded bearings with hubs – extremely fast turnaround times and very competitive pricing.
Urethane Molded Bearings
We can produce custom urethane molded bearings with a hardness range from 20A to 75D durometer with a variety of urethane additives that can be added to enhance wear properties while adding lubricity to the bearing. The result is a non-marking long life bearing that will meet or exceed OEM specifications for your application often times costing less than original replacements with excellent lead times. Replacing a rubber coated bearing and recovering it with a urethane coating is becoming more frequent due to urethane being more durable than many OEM materials such as rubber and plastic. We utilize the best in class polyurethane from world’s leading polyurethane manufacturers.
