Plastic Injection Molding Design and Manufacturing
Rollers are used in applications requiring resistance to
high temperatures, tear and abrasion resistance.
Polyurethane is a great cost effective replacement
material for silicon, and natural rubber.
applications for polyurethane rollers are high temperature
thermal printer rollers, offset printing press compression
cylinder and ink rollers. Other applications include
wheels, casters, car wash rollers, wire guide rollers,
labeling machine rollers, and more.
Polyurethane rollers are typically manufactured using a cast or mold process over the desired bushing or core. Normally some post casting or molding machining is required to ensure the roller is at the desired diameter and length.
