Plastics Fabrication and Machining

Since 1962, we have been providing customers with excellence in custom plastic fabrication and CNC machining. Our fabrication engineers are skilled in CAD/CAM programs so you can bring us your tightest tolerance or oddest profiles and we will fabricate your parts to your exact requirements. Production-run quantities are fulfilled without the up-front cost of custom molding or tooling, and parts are cleaned, de-burred, and ready to install.

Over the years we have continued to invest in equipment to bring you the very latest in machining capabilities. From 3-axis CNC routers with multiple active tool changers to 3D measurement tools that provide inspection and analysis of components during our manufacturing process, we provide the very best in plastic fabrication.

Material Choices

Acetals: Excellent machining properties, ideal for holding close tolerances. High compression strength and stiffness make it good for high-load applications.

Nylons: Type 6 (cast) and Type 6/6 (extruded) are common for industrial components. Excellent wear resistance and tensile strength. Available in oil or molybdenum disulphide filled compounds offering a lower coefficient of friction for bearings and wear parts.

Polytetrafluoroethylene PTFE (Teflon®): Exceptional chemical, electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties. Operates at temperatures up to 550ºF. Glass fibers can be added to improve dimensional stability. The most recognized source of PTFE resin is Teflon.

UHMW-PE (Duro-Glide®): UItra high molecular weight polyethylene. Used where abrasion, impact, or chemical resistance is desired. A low coefficient of friction and high-slip property makes it ideal as a wear liner for handling bulk commodities. Operates at temperatures as low as – 375ºF, making it excellent for cryogenic applications.

Duro-Lube: Oil-filled UHMW-PE is ideally suited for applications like wear strips, slider plates, and bearing surfaces where lubrication is desirable to lower the coefficient of friction. All additives meet FDA requirements for direct food contact.
