Processing Capabilities

Plastic Processing

While Alro Plastics main focus is plastic distribution, we also offer what we refer to as “Value-Added” services like plastic fabrication. Alro Plastics has the equipment and the resources to take almost any customer supplied print and create finished parts from it.

From basic services as CNC saw cutting to the more complex CNC routing of custom designed shapes, Alro Plastics has a lot of ways to add value to your order. With equipment like CNC routers, milling machines, machining centers, plastic welding, rod and tube cutting as well as fiberglass cutting we can do a lot of different parts in house. We have also aligned ourselves with a few of our customers to do work for us that we can’t do in house, like screw machine work, waterjet cutting and 5-axis machining. Please give us a look on your next per print job and see the value Alro Plastics can bring to the table.

Alro Plastics machines most of the plastics we stock and have many years experience working with these plastics. From 1/16”thk to 6”thk, our CNC routers make machining these parts easy. Over the years we have provided our customers with high quality parts delivered on-time. We take pride in keeping lead times short and quality high, and we are also ISO certified. We also have the capabilities to do heat bending and forming on many of the see-through plastics, like acrylics, polycarbonate and PETG. Heating them to the right temperature is critical to success.
