The majority of parts we cast are application specific to a certain customer, or OEM(Original Equipment Manufacturer). These parts are in a variety of hardnesses from the very soft to the very hard depending upon the application.
We guide customers in the material selection process to maximize the performance of parts in their application. We design your tooling to ensure its proper performance and supply sample first article parts prior to production parts to verify your satisfaction.
Applications requiring high abrasion resistance, outstanding tear and tensile strength, noise dampening, chemical resistance, and excellent load bearing capability, find that urethane surpasses most other polymers.
The Highest Quality Available
The versatility of open-cast urethane molding produces a wide variety of products for most industries. Applications requiring high abrasion resistance, outstanding tensile and tear strength, noise dampening, chemical resistance, and/or excellent load bearing capability, find that urethane surpasses most other polymers.
Maximizes Wear & Strength
Expensive metal casting often times can be replaced by lightweight urethane and still maintain or exceed wear characteristics found in their metal counterparts. Polyurethanes can be selected and formulated to maximize particular need specifications such as maximizing abrasion or increasing tensile strength to obtain the strongest, most break resistant part possible. The ingredients found in some urethanes are FDA approved for contact with foodstuffs and find applications in food services and production.
Advantages of Open Casting:
- Low cost tooling
- Small to medium-sized production runs
- Fast turnaround/delivery
- Versatility of part design
