Working in the automotive industry can lead to benefits when mixing up manufacturing procedures to produce outstanding automotive components, such as the case with urethane casting. Creating various car parts with urethane casting requires a lot of skill and knowledge but shows up with met expectations in the results on prototyping or the final product.

Urethane casting is used for many different applications, including aerospace and medical industries. It is also used to make parts for consumer products such as toys, furniture, and appliances where safety regulations and specifications must be attained. 

SOME AUTOMOBILE PARTS CREATED WITH URETHANE CASTING ARE:

Bumpers
Fenders
Internal components
Doors
Wheel well
Among other items

BENEFITS OF USING URETHANE CASTING IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

Resistant to wear-and-tear: Cars need to be strong and resistant to wear-and-tear, making it necessary to be less prone to failures. After all, it needs to have a long lifespan to improve the brand’s reputation and keep people safe.

Resilience to weather elements: Outside weather also is a factor in which manufacturing automotive parts need to be taken into account, especially when the components need to be resistant to rotting or highly flexible material results in less damage to the component.

Impact resistance: Making sure the physical properties won’t compromise its functionality when an impact occurs is part of the product development stages. The most common use of this is urethane casting to create parts that need to be tough and flexible enough to bend without breaking.

Urethane casting also allows having a better investment control in tooling and materials. Besides the capabilities and resistance of the car part, utilizing the benefits of urethane casting helps in business to have a bridge between initial prototypes and high-volume production.

What are the reasons to use urethane casting in the production process for automotive components:

  • Creates a shorter time between building a few prototypes and a full-scale production
  • Reducing total cost 
  • Provide quick iterations according to market needs
  • Respond quickly to shorter product life cycles
  • Lower financial risks

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN WORKING WITH URETHANE CASTING

When speed to market is critical: urethane casting is a perfect solution. In these varieties of manufacturing industries, the urethane casting process is known to create a mold quickly, providing a good low cost and quick turnaround for high-value plastic parts.

Besides, the versatility of urethane casting allows a wide range of specifications not always available in other manufacturing processes, such as a variety on the rigidity of the produced part.

While a silicone mold wears out quickly, it is vastly more cost-effective for very low volume and prototype plastic parts with production-level quality and surface finishes.
