Polyurethane Rollers and Guide Wheels
Polyurethane Rollers and Guide Wheels made to your specifications on demand with rapid shipping.
With clients across the globe, Industrial Screen & Maintenance (ISM) has designed and engineered numerous urethane applications across several different industries. With over 50 years of experience, ISM is a leader in manufacturing urethane rollers, wheels, pulleys, and bearings with a tight tolerance of +/-.005. Our proprietary urethane blends allow for the industry’s largest range of hardness on the Durometer Shore Hardness Scale ranging from Shore 00 to Shore D 80.
Urethane possesses several attractive properties for rollers, wheels, pulleys and bearings including high load bearing capacity, flexibility, strong bonding properties, high tensile strength, shock absorbency, beneficial electrical properties, and tear, abrasion, impact, chemical, water, oil, grease, mold, mildew and fungus resistance. Additionally, urethane is an economical manufacturing application. At ISM, we are able to not only manufacture the urethane; we manufacture the cast molds making the production of urethane components even more economical for our customers.

Why Work with ISM for your Urethane Roller Needs?
Customization & Design Expertise
Our team of urethane engineers can customize, design, and draw urethane rollers, wheels or pulleys to meet your exact specifications with customizations to include: color, durometer, length, diameter, bonding substrates and FDA wet and dry requirements.
Our precision quality manufacturing processes ensure the components we deliver are the components you expect meeting tight tolerances and deadlines.
Made in the USA
Our urethane formulas are propriety and created in house at our Casper, Wyoming facility. We partner with the top polyurethane manufacturers, and stock an assortment of materials for quick turnaround runs.
In-House Machine Shop Services
With over 20 high tech CNC machines and lathes, our certified machinist can manufacture high tolerance roller cores of all shapes, sizes and in various materials. When refurbishing used rollers, ISM can work with the supplied cores or build new cores from samples or designs at a fraction of the cost of buying new ones. Additionally, we can fully rebuild roller bearings. With extensive expertise, our machinists create custom urethane cast molds.
Extend Product Lifespan
With our two machine shops, we are able to strip, repair and recoat worn rollers. Often times rollers we recoat were previously coated in plastic or rubber. The application of urethane saves clients’ money as urethane is more durable than most OEM materials. With both our machine shop and urethane production under one roof, we can deliver repaired rollers much quicker and more cost effective than our competition. See More Details.(link to bottom section)
