Research, development & testing

Our engineers employ a wide range of methods to offer the best possible solutions. All products are 3D modelled and put through an FEM simulation in order to optimize dimensions, material utilisation and performance. Our wheels are made from best-in-class polyurethanes, such as Vulkollan®.

Vulkoprin has a long term R&D cooperation with several universities and higher colleges of technology. A number of high-tech testing tools have been developed to test our polyurethane wheels for various applications. We can, for example, simulate a roller coaster track with speeds of well over 100km/h, or forklift truck loads of up to 5 tons at speeds of 30 km/h.

The result is innovative and more performant wheels. Contact our sales department if you need help to develop your wheel application.

Your trust in our products is what drives us forward!
