Turnkey Products | Machining | Engineered Solutions

General Plastics & Composites has the people, experience, technical expertise, material manufacturing, precision machining capabilities and the commitment to meet all your needs, from normal conditions to the harshest environments. We supply materials for oilfield service industry applications that withstand temperatures up to 500 F and 30,000 psi. Some of our capabilities include:
  • Tubular, solid billet and plate
  • Specialized laminate configurations
  • Manufacturing composite and thermset plastic with reinforcements including E-Glass, S-glass, Carbon Fiber, Kevlar and Pre-preg
  • Computer-controlled filament winding (four CNC filament winders)
  • Resin transfer molding
  • Vacuum impregnation
  • Wet lay-up
  • High volume CNC and manual machining
  • Bonding of dissimilar materials

Turnkey Products

Through joint cooperation with our subsidiary, GP Rubber, and a dedicated metal machining division, we complete turnkey assemblies that require a combination of metal, rubber and composites. All complex turnkey assemblies are managed in Microsoft Project for accurate assessment of materials, processes and time requirements. Our account managers, production managers and engineers facilitate the project from beginning to end, making sure progress is communicated to our customers and timelines are met.

  • Drillable plug sets
  • Downhole tools
  • Complex wireline assemblies
  • MWD/LWD assemblies

We have the resources and experienced personnel to take sole responsibility for all aspects of the project to provide simple sub-assemblies to multi-level complex assemblies, minimizing the need for multiple purchase orders, additional outside processes or transportation.

We have a large selection of machinery in our over 80,000 sq. ft. oilfield composites manufacturing facility. Customers benefit from our more than 70 CNC and conventional machines including lathes and mills with 4 and 5 axis with pallet changing capability, lengths up to 200" and diameters up to 25". Holding very close tolerances is our specialty. In addition to lathes and mills, General Plastics & Composites has 5 multi-spindle 4 axis CNC Filament Winders. We are continually adding resources and equipment to meet the needs of our oilfield customers.

Engineered Solutions
Our in-house engineers provide composites expertise to jointly design products and assemblies for the down-hole environment. We assure the best solution for materials and manufacturing, such as:

  • Best composite materials
  • Best composite manufacturing methods
  • Co-development designs
  • Complex loading condition
  • In-house testing for R&D and customer driven
  • Fully-equipped R&D lab
  • Mechanical confirmation testing by outside labs (ASTM)
  • Resin R&D
  • NEI (Nastran Finite Element Analysis Software)
  • SolidWorks
  • GibbsCam

Co-development and early involvement with experienced engineering team ensures fit for purpose solutions with maximum value at reasonable costs.

All manufacturered components and assemblies are routed through manufacturing engineering.
