Innovation in Polyurethane Hammer Design and Manufacturing

Hammers are some of the oldest tools on the market in terms of basic design, which dates back thousands of years. Nevertheless, innovative new materials and manufacturing features are still driving the evolution of hammers to this day.

How to bend cosmetically critical parts on the press brake

Bending cosmetically critical parts involves prefinished materials such as prepolished, prepainted, coated, laminated sheet metals, or materials that are softer than the bending tool. Similarly, you can see marring or cosmetic damages on patterned materials like tread plate, texture-finished materials, and soft metals like copper and brass.

Types of Industrial Overhead Crane Bumpers and Buffers Compared

Designed and manufactured right here in Addison, Illinois, our high-performance crane bumpers comply with all standard C.M.A.A and O.S.H.A. requirements and are built to last.

When to Replace a Compression Spring in a Punch Stripper Assembly

Compression springs are integral components that facilitate reliable operation of your punch stripper assembly system. Every spring requires a precisely tuned spring rate in order to exhibit the specific compression and rebound properties needed to achieve accurate and repeatable punch press operations.

How to Protect Sheet Metal Using Coil Storage

Proper sheet metal coil storage is crucial to ensure that your raw materials remain damage-free and ready-to-go for manufacturing.

The Advantages of Polyurethane Hammers – Durability Combined with Versatility

Polyurethane is one of the most ideal materials for manufacturing dead-blow hammers and soft mallets. A highly versatile polymer, polyurethane is tough, cost-effective, and reliable for a wide range of consumer and industrial tools. It also naturally offers numerous performance advantages for this unique application – most notably, customizable hardness combined with excellent shock-absorption.

Coil Storage Pads - Custom Sheet Metal Coil Storage Cradles

Polyurethane Products steps in with multiple coil storage options to choose from, all engineered with extreme durability to stand the test of time on any modern factory floor

The Benefits of Urethane Punch Strippers and Compression Springs

Punch strippers make the metal stamping process simpler, more streamlined, and more consistent. Conventionally, punch strippers rely on steel compression springs to produce tension between the workpiece and stripper assembly as it is stamped. However, modern innovations in materials science and more sophisticated manufacturing methods have afforded a number of performance advantages to urethane punch strippers and compression springs compared to their steel counterparts.
