Redwood Plastics sells a wide variety of plastic materials and we try to put a spotlight on as many as we can. However, a large part of our business is in helping customers overcome problems with parts or machinery that are wearing prematurely. Each Redwood Plastics branch has full machining capability including CNC machines capable of milling, lathing and routing. Our experienced machinists will gladly assist you whether it’s as complex as writing a program to CNC lathe a custom part or to simply cut your rod, sheet or tube down to size.
Why Consider Redwood For Fabrication?
This might seem surprising but our “aftermarket” plastic parts often have three significant advantages over original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts, even when you take into consideration the process of designing and fabricating the part. Firstly, many OEM parts come from international sources where shipping is expensive. Secondly, OEM parts are not cheap – they are often a significant stream of ongoing revenue to the equipment manufacturer.
Lastly, and most importantly, common OEM materials such as bronze, brass, rubber and even commodity-grade plastics are often not the optimal material for the job. While actual defects concern any reasonable company – the regular replacement of parts doesn’t result in any “lost sleep” for many OEMs because, after all, you return to them to purchase replacement parts!
Parts made with Redco™ materials often outwear and outlast traditional parts by a factor of 2-20x this not only means a longer lasting part but also less costly maintenance downtime, which further increases your profits. Click here for more information on our machining and manufacturing services.
