Universal Urethane Products Polyurethane Chopper Cot has been a leading manufacturer of fiberglass chopping cots worldwide. Universal Urethane has faced multiple challenges based on chopper designs however, we have a wide variety of tooling to produce cots of all sizes. Our engineers have been working closely with fiberglass manufacturer’s process engineers and fiberglass chopper machine manufacturer’s designers to maximize the life of the cot. Cots can come in a sleeve form with a fiberglass reinforcement and with splines molded to the inside of the cot for better grip. We can also bond a cot directly to the chopping hub. Using our knowledge gained from 50+ years of experience with several different materials, Universal Urethane continues to be the supplier of choice when trying to improve longevity and quality in chopping fiberglass.
What is the process of how we create a urethane cot for you?
When it comes to designing the best polyurethane cot for your business, we want to make sure we have all the information we need to find the best solution for you. This will start with comprehensive meetings among multiple personnel who have direct experience in the fiberglass chopping industry to gain an initial plan. During our first meeting, this will mainly be an informational gathering meeting. Where we discuss the size of your cot, the durometer you need, the type of chop you cut, any specific specifications you need and any current issues that you have. This will then lead to field visits and experimentations. Why do we need to have field visits and experiments? Because these allow us to gain real insight and will help us collaborate with our customer’s engineers. These visits will allow us to choose and create the best simulation and test method to validate our design proposals. These validation processes are very important to minimize any unintended results or errors to the parts or design. After this has been passed, we provide a prototype that has a lower chance of jeopardizing customer downtime during testing. Once our prototype has been passed, we are ready to start production. In the end, our fully automated polyurethane mixing machine will allow us to provide high quality products that have a consistent and exact performance to fit our customers needs and demands.
