Equipment Capabilities

The largest plastics fabrication equipment arrangement in the Midwest is ready and waiting to get to work for you! Explore the features of our equipment and imagine what we could create together to help your business succeed.


Precision and speed don’t often go hand in hand, but when it comes to saws, our CNC panel saws make it possible. For both cut-to-size and cut-for-fabrication jobs, these machines execute large and small cuts quickly and accurately. We're not just about making cuts; we're about maximizing value. By reducing costs through optimized yield and minimizing waste, we offer significant savings for your projects. By cutting down materials, we reduce shipping costs, making it more economical to ship via UPS. Plus, with our ability to customize pricing based on your requirements and offer cost-effective solutions compared to standard stock materials, we ensure that you get the best value for your investment.

Cut to Size At Cope Plastics, we're not just cutting materials; we're cutting costs, saving time, and delivering precision solutions tailored just for you.
Guillotine Saw Our guillotine saw cuts thin gauge and corrugated material in-house with no chips or dust, which is ideal for graphics material.


For large parts and large quantities, nothing beats our multi-head CNC routers. We’re equipped with over a dozen of these massive machines, which allows us to handle even the biggest of any big job with ease. On our CNC routers, your drawing is first uploaded to the software, then your Cope Plastics programmer selects the proper tool, cut depth, and cutting path. Once the router is set up, your material is cut to specifications using computer automation that ensures precision every time.

Lathes & Screw Machining

Screw machining is an excellent alternative to injection molding, especially considering the high cost of tooling. Manual and automatic lathes can produce any round work that can be made from rod—washers, pulleys, valves, grommets, and a whole lot more. We have an extensive set of equipment for this type of round work, including 10 screw machines and 12 lathes. We have a wide variety of different types of lathes to perform specialized round work for nearly any application. Whether your job requires 50 or 50,000 parts, we can handle it.
