Aluminum Fabrication. Aluminum fabrication has emerged as a pivotal manufacturing process in a variety of industries, from aerospace and automotive to construction and electronics. Due to its strong, yet lightweight and flexible nature, aluminum is machined into many durable and corrosion-resistant components.
Roberson Machine Company has over 20 years of experience in the aluminum fabrication process. Whether it’s forging, machining, drawing, bonding, extrusion, welding, or casting, our entire team is trained in the specific machining techniques required for your company’s needs. We provide all manufacturing services – from initial conception, to prototyping, to the end product.
What Are Common Types of Aluminum Used in Fabrication at Roberson Machine Company?
We have the ability to fabricate any type of aluminum and aluminum alloy, tailored to your specific needs. These are some of the popular types of aluminum:
What Are the Best Practices in Aluminum Fabrication?
To ensure optimal results for our customers and to maintain standards of quality, Roberson Machine Company follows a checklist of best practices throughout the fabrication process. These practices include:
- Selecting the Right Aluminum Alloy
- Maintaining Proper Equipment and Tooling

What Are the Benefits of Aluminum Fabrication at Roberson Machine Company?
At Roberson Machine Company, we put quality first. We deliver complex, precise aluminum fabricated components faster than our competitors because of our experienced team of machinists. The following factors make aluminum fabrication an excellent choice for your company’s parts and products:
Aluminum is Lightweight and Durable
Aluminum weighs approximately one-third of the weight of steel, iron, copper, and brass, so it is more malleable and less costly to manufacture. Its strength-to-weight ratio is almost two times stronger than steel, allowing it to be fabricated efficiently and then withstand the weight and strength of the largest machines in every industry.
Aluminum is Ideal for Extreme Temperatures
The heat transfer abilities of aluminum are among the most valuable benefits. Aluminum has the ability to draw off heat when under extreme temperatures like fire or excessive sunlight, making it work well in extreme conditions. Even at the lowest or highest temperatures, aluminum retains its flexibility, strength, and softness.
Aluminum Resists Corrosion
A layer of oxide naturally accumulates on aluminum surfaces, making it resistant to corrosion. We have the capacity to utilize aluminum fabrication on all your projects. Tools, machines, and other products last longer as they corrode less. Call Roberson Machine Company today at 573-646-3996 or contact us online.
Aluminum Has Great Electrical and Thermal Conductivity
Aluminum has 61 percent of the conductivity of copper, which is commonly used for electrical components. It is also considerably cheaper than copper. With its durability and resistance to corrosion, aluminum becomes a better choice than copper for a wide range of products and parts. It is now widely used in HVAC units, as it can transfer heat for both cooling and heating products.
Aluminum is Affordable, Accessible, and Easily Recyclable
Aluminum is the most abundant and cheapest metal on the planet, and is the third most abundant metal in the Earth’s crust. Aluminum is 100 percent recyclable and during the recycling process, unlike other metals, it retains all of its original properties. Recycling aluminum uses far less energy than creating it and – as long as impurities are kept under control – it gets reused indefinitely. We use recycled material in our shop whenever we can to help reduce our carbon footprint.
