Custom Urethane Product Development Solutions & Services
Let C.U.E. help make your idea a commercialized reality.
C.U.E., Inc. specializes in urethane product development. Our team of engineers assists with product design based on your requirements. Hundreds of new parts are designed each year by our experienced team. This experience can translate into a product that meets your vision and one that can be manufactured efficiently.
After the product design is complete, we design our own molds in-house with our 3 dimensional software package. Our Ph.D. polymer chemist develops a new, or customizes an existing urethane compound to meet your exact performance specifications. Prototype parts are produced for customer approval and field testing.
Once your product is ready for commercialization, we have the capability and capacity for large, efficient production runs on one of our dozen state-of-the-art manufacturing cells. A wide range of finishing equipment such as chop saws, band saws, sanders, and CNC lathes are available should your part require machine finishing.
We have designed products for highway maintenance and safety, high-tech industries, military applications, packaging applications, and vehicle components to name a few. We’ve worked with several fortune 500 companies on high-volume-potential new projects. One of our recent development projects resulting in C.U.E. winning a coveted R & D 100 award.
