Our parts make your parts better

We work with you and your engineering team to create the ideal machined plastic solution for your critical application. Maybe that’s a part for a high-temperature or sub-zero environment. Maybe you need a part to operate for years while submerged in corrosive chemicals. Or maybe you need a part that’s quiet, strong, and resistant to wear.

We know you and your customers are looking for more than just parts—you need solutions to problems. Whatever that takes, from prototype to emergency replacement to production run, we work with you to make it happen.

How do our parts make your parts better?

Specialty plastic parts don’t just happen. Manufacturing advanced plastic parts depends on close teamwork between engineers and machinists. It takes more than precision equipment—it requires expert design, advanced materials and extensive hands-on knowledge.

Here’s how we deliver for you:

Teamwork from the Start
First, we offer an in-depth consultation. We’ll help you select the best material for the project. Whatever your demands—anti-static, salt water resistance, rugged durability, extreme heat resistance—we know which advanced plastic to choose.

If your design is finalized already, as is the case for many of our government and military customers, that’s fine. We’ll follow your instructions exactly.

Engineering and Design
If you request design services, we provide engineering drawings to ensure accuracy. Once you approve, we go to work.

Development and Enhancement
Many customers ask us to enhance their original designs and processes. We almost always find a way to improve production without sacrificing quality. Improvements include less waste, lower cost, longer part life, faster delivery, a more reliable supply, tighter tolerance, fewer rejects—just let us know your goal.

On-Time Delivery
We know that everything stops if the part’s not there. That’s why we fine-tune our production schedules daily to make sure we meet your deadline. Of course, we also offer rush production and delivery for critical situations.

Production
Every elite machinist at Reading Plastic has a genuine appreciation for your business. We believe in doing things right the first time. Our systematic approach to production and quality management is ISO 9001:2008 certified.

Quality Assurance
Every job goes through our rigorous quality assurance testing process. Inspections include 3D measurement, digital microscopic review, optical comparator review and more. We even offer custom specialty packaging to make sure your parts arrive safe and sound. We’re proud of our process and the parts we make.

Post-Sale Support
The job doesn’t end at shipping or final payment. We pursue total customer satisfaction and lifelong business relationships. We’re always here for you, ready to help.

Acetal Machining: Acetal Homopolymer vs. Acetal Copolymer

  Acetal machining is useful for transforming this strong, stiff plastic into precise parts for industrial applications. One of the strongest thermoplastics, acetal is available in numerous forms, the most popular including Delrin® and Tecaform®. We’re experienced in machining custom parts from each. In this blog, learn more about acetal plastic machining, the properties of […]
