A Wide Range of Urethane Molding Processes
Based on the size, quantity, and engineering requirements of your application, Gallagher delivers on your toughest demands using urethane molding processes such as cast liquid techniques or injection molding.
A versatile range of processing machinery allows us to work on unique, one-of-a-kind projects as well as high-volume OEM components. We’re constantly investing in better, faster, more efficient technologies to meet evolving needs and help you stay ahead in an increasingly competitive global market.
Every day, we process up to 40 different cast urethane compounds, which can be molded into hundreds of different products.
Our advanced machinery accurately maintains both temperature and flow rate of the liquid components, ensuring that the mixed compound is optimum and consistent. Because the cast urethane is a liquid, we can gravity-fill molds with little or no pressure. This type of tooling is generally less expensive – great for prototyping and short- to medium-production runs. We can also pressure fill molds directly from the mixing machine, centrifugally mold, compression mold and mold under vacuum.
Gallagher offers a wide range of thermoplastic urethanes, glass filled urethane, TPR, polycarbonate and nylon. Processed via injection molding, thermoplastics combine great physical properties and cost-effectiveness on medium- and high-volume production runs.
Using either of the above processes, we can mold to inserts such as bearings, wheel and roller hubs, threaded fasteners, metal plates, and shafts. The insert can be made from aluminum, steel, stainless steel or plastic.
