What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Arlington, TX Company?
Machined parts can be made from many different materials, including metals and plastics. But, some materials are easier to machine than others. Exceptionally hard materials are especially difficult to puncture with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to shake or vibrate more, thus likely diminishing quality. Exceptionally soft materials, and materials with a low melting point, may become damaged once coming into contact with the cutting tool. Some of our most common machined part materials are listed below. As always, we’d be open to discussing the possibility of machining parts with other materials. Just call us at 573-646-3996 or contact us online.
- Metals: Aluminum (6061, 7075, 7050 or “aa7050 alloy”), Stainless Steel (303, 304), Magnesium, Titanium, Zinc, Brass, Bronze, Copper
- Plastics: ABS, PC, <a href="PC-ABS, PP, PS, POM, PMMA, PAGF30, PCGF30, Teflon, DHPE, HDPE, PPS, PEEK

What Are the Advantages of Using Machined Parts at My Arlington, TX Company?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company offer certain advantages that may not be possible with 3D printed parts or even injection molded parts in Arlington, TX. Some of the key advantages for your Arlington, TX company are:
Machined parts can be cut to an exceptionally high quality, based primarily on your Arlington, TX company’s tolerances and specifications. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance pieces and individual features to guarantee the finest quality.
Machined parts can be produced quicker than pieces made via other manufacturing production like Arlington, TX molding. This is mostly because of to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, being able to rely more on the CAD and CAM software our machinists input into the CNC machines. But the manufacturing process itself is also highly effective and efficient – some of our CNC machines have rapid rates of almost 45 yards per minute, even though we don’t machine parts at those speeds. The speed of our CNC machines, along with the one-step nature of machining combine to make machined parts some of the fastest to manufacture, diminishing lead times for shorter time-to-market and practical rapid prototyping.
Machined parts can have a wide range of shapes and sizes. This is because CNC machines aren’t subjected to the same limitations of molding, like thin walls and tapering. Machined parts can be robust and thick, yet their features can be fine and complex. Despite machined parts having some limitations when it comes to, for example, internal sections and deep channels, machining remains the most geometrically flexible manufacturing procedure for your Arlington, TX production run.
Because CNC machined parts are produced from digital CAD files, it is possible to make changes throughout the machining procedure, right up until the last minute. This is extremely useful throughout our research and experimental development and prototyping stages, when your team or our engineers might look to make fractional changes or refinements to the machined part or develop numerous versions. It also reduces the possibility of waste, as defective parts are far less likely to come about.
Machined parts are cut from solid pieces of material known as blanks, which have typically been cast or extruded. This makes them foundationally solid in comparison to, for example, 3D printed pieces, which can be much flimsier along one axis, where one layer is built atop the next.
Machined parts entirely circumvent the surface quality issues associated with molding like flow lines, jetting, and flash at the parting line. With a small amount of post-processing, which is achieved in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to a high standard regarding surface finish. Machining also provides a superior surface finish to 3D printing, even prior to any secondary service has been carried out by our machinists. 3D printing can leave noticeable layer lines on the surface of the part, which then must be smoothed over by sanding or chemical treatment. Machined parts do not produce these layer lines.
No Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ)
Machined parts are cut directly from a blank workpiece, making it cost-effective and possible to order extremely small quantities or even one-off parts. For molded parts, it is necessary to fabricate metal tooling – a procedure that seems endless and can be expensive. However, machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in offering top-quality parts with no MOQ, making it a good option for smaller businesses in Arlington, TX, small production runs, and prototyping.
What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Arlington, TX?
The Roberson Machine Company facilities are fully stocked with top-of-the-line CNC machinery capable of manufacturing accurately machined parts in a fraction of the time compared to our competitors. Our full range of equipment includes:
- CNC Horizontal Mills
- CNC Vertical Mills
- CNC Horizontal Lathes
All mills use rotary cutting in the subtractive manufacturing process of removing materials from a workpiece, but our CNC mills combine the cutting procedure with cutting-edge computer control to allow for accurate and rapid manufacturing. Our horizontal CNC mills quickly and accurately shape your component material to tight tolerances. Our CNC horizontal milling services benefit from the availability of our modern 3 axis, 4 axis, and 5 axis machines.
Vertical CNC mills feature spindles that are set at 90 degrees to the floor, making them optimal for projects calling for large production runs of fairly intricate parts. Although horizontal mills are better suited for more complicated milling projects, vertical mills are adept in an array of designs for your business’s project in Arlington, TX.
In contrast to mills, which rely on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is cut. Compared to manual lathes, which call for a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically diminish the amount of labor and the probability of human error. These advantages translate into decreases in cost and defect rates for you in Arlington, TX.
