Stainless steel is an extremely popular alloy because of its excellent physical properties and superior corrosion resistance. But to get the most from stainless steel parts, it’s important to choose a company that offers expert stainless steel CNC machining services. Stainless steel requires carefully maintained tooling and machining in order to achieve precision parts. At Reading Plastic, our experienced staff and state-of-the-art machines allow us to deliver accurate results on time, every time.
Stainless steel contains at least 10% chromium, which creates an immaculate surface finish and gives the metal an exceptional corrosion resistance. Because stainless steel doesn’t rust or corrode like regular steel, it is perfect for applications with high moisture or humidity. It also has excellent heat and impact resistance, high tensile strength, excellent durability, and delivers good performance at both high and low temperatures. Stainless steel parts can be found in nearly every industry, including aerospace, automotive, medical and military. Popular applications of stainless steel parts include:
We offer a full range of precision CNC machining services, including turning, milling, routing and cutting. Our CNC turning services specialize in multi-axis lathe work that holds tight tolerance standards, up to .001”. We use the latest CAD/CAM techniques and software to produce world-class precision-turned parts with supercharged efficiency. We also offer precision threading in ANSI, ASME, metric and variable pitch threads.
Our CNC milling machines are capable of complex geometries, extremely tight tolerances, and surface finishes as smooth as 15Ra. We can also perform secondary post-milling operations, such as finishing through-bores and adding threads, to help save you time and lower production costs.
Fast cycle times and consistently accurate results are the hallmarks of our CNC routing services. We can meet your specifications, no matter how complex the design or challenging the material. Our machines use standard milling bits from .010” to 4.0” for superior efficiency, and we can handle oversized specialty parts up to 127” x 80” x 9.”
Our high-speed CNC saws combine ultra-fast cutting speed with pinpoint accuracy for precision cuts every time. We can process materials up to 128” in length and deliver perfectly-shaped pieces ready for the next step of machining.
At our shop you will find a fleet of immaculately maintained machines, including ultra-precise cutting tools and the highest level of quality control equipment. All of our parts must pass a rigorous ISO 9001:2015 certified inspection before shipping, and we have been machining to strict standards (FDA, Aviation, Department of Defense, etc.) for over three decades.
We are proud of our excellent machining practices: we have developed some of the most advanced vacuum, chuck and vise holding techniques in the industry for superior work holding that delivers better parts. We also understand that downtime is costly, which is why we fine-tune our production schedules daily to make sure your parts are delivered on time, every time. We also offer rush production and delivery for critical situations.
If you have a project in mind, call us today at (610) 926-3245 or email email@example.com. We look forward to working with you.
