At Plastic Products, Inc., we have been offering high quality machining and milling for well over 30 years. We began as a small machine shop doing research and development work for new product design. While we have become a leading manufacturer, we continue to use our experience in R&D for new products and customers. At our 20,000 square foot facility, we are able to provide virtually any type of prototype, including form study, functional, and visual prototypes. We also construct scale models and offer material concepts. Our prototypes are made with high quality CNC milling and turning equipment as well as manual machines. Using materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, Vespel, PTFE, and Torlon, our ISO and AS 9100C certified facility machines prototypes of the highest quality and with uncompromising accuracy. We've prototyped projects that have included medical, aerospace, and high tech devices, often requiring tolerances of up to ± 0.0005". We work in sizes that range up to 10" in length, width, and height. Our R&D and prototyping services are complemented by a range of additional services such as in-house fixturing & tooling, and much more. Finally, with our Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing practices, we offer efficiency that allows us to provide highly flexible lead times, including rush and expedited capabilities when required.
