Save Time and Keep Costs Down
We work with all sizes and types of machine shops to provide the materials, documentation, and services needed to meet requirements and keep jobs on schedule.
Quick Turn Around on RFQs
Our sales reps know you need to quote quickly and we work fast to help you get the job. If you need a quote outside normal business hours our online catalog may be the answer. You can select materials and calculate cut-to-size to meet your job requirements.
Large Inventory of Straight and Flat Sheet, Rod, and Tube
Curbell Plastics has a broad inventory of sheet, rod, and tube to meet the needs of machine shops and fabricators. Our quick delivery options help shops with tight timetables keep on top of orders.
We stock quality materials that demonstrate low levels of residual stress to avoid warping during machining. CNC machines need straight and flat sheet, rod, and tube to feed correctly to keep scrap and labor rates low.
Reduce labor and time costs by having us cut your materials to size. With our in-house CNC panel saws and manual cutting equipment we are capable of quickly cutting materials to meet your requirements so you can begin work as soon as your order arrives. We work with you to maximize material yields to optimize costs and reduce waste.
Certifications and Traceability
For machine shops that make parts for critical service devices, Curbell can provide a certificate of conformance with each shipment certifying the materials meet the required engineering specifications. We also work with machine shops to provide additional documentation if required showing material manufacturer, date of manufacture, manufacturing lot, and properties test results.
For machine shops that need specific materials on a regular basis or that have repeat orders Curbell may be able to help with a custom inventory program such as blanket orders, JIT, or consignment. Contact a plastics expert today to learn more about these program options.
