Urethane is probably one of the most important materials in use by industrialized nations. The versatility of custom cast urethane has proven useful in countless applications. This makes sense given that it’s inexpensive, durable, moldable, quiet when used in mechanical situations, and resistant to wear and tear.
Urethane has many advantages over plastics, rubber, and metals. Urethane doesn’t lose durability with hardness, whereas plastic becomes brittle and breaks. Also, unlike plastic, when urethane is stretched it always returns to its original dimensions. Moving metal pieces can produce sparks, burrs, splinters, and dust, whereas urethane has high impact resistance and abrasion resistance, without any possibility of spark generation. When urethane parts do wear out, replacements are economical and straightforward to manufacture without expensive and inconvenient machining. On the other hand, rubber is expensive, degrades with oil, and is not as durable.
One of the most difficult tasks in retooling a piece of machinery is finding urethane parts to replace worn out components. This is particularly true when metal or plastic parts are specifically engineered for a task. The difficulty is eliminated with CAD technology, which can determine exact dimensions with a laser and translate the data into a 3D printed piece.
Custom cast urethane moldings can also be used as dies for larger runs by companies that produce urethane products. Regardless of the quantity required for a particular item, using a custom cast urethane molding service would be a logical first step in fulfilling parts requirements.
For inventors, Cad Crowd’s custom cast urethane molding service is ideal for developing trial runs of a prototype. The initial models of a new design should be just as rugged as the marketable product. Urethane is a high-impact substance that can stand up to the rigors of tests a prototype would be put through. By using Cad Crowd’s expertise and services, your project will be in safe hands with our team of qualified engineers.
Cad Crowd has proven itself in the field of product development by committing to a thorough investment in technology and services that applied to all projects, and by providing a team approach for all our tasks. Inventors always have control over their projects and whatever decisions need to be made. Cad Crowd’s expertise has helped many inventors complete their projects make them marketable.
Cad Crowd’s combination of knowledge and technology saves large amounts of time and money by sidestepping the labor-intensive route of vetting people and equipment. Once the prototype stage is completed, Cad Crowd’s inventory of quality manufacturers puts the inventor in touch with those who can produce the item. This fast-tracking process puts Cad Crowd ahead of its competitors and gives the inventor the edge of being on the market sooner.
