What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Aurora, CO Company?
Machined parts can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and plastics. Yet, some materials are easier to machine than others. Extremely hard materials are difficult to puncture with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to vibrate more, thus likely diminishing quality. Extremely soft materials, as well as materials with a low melting point, may deform once coming into contact with the cutting tool. Several of our most common machined part materials are listed below. As always, we are available to a conversation involving machining parts with other materials. Just give us a call at 573-646-3996 or connect with 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 Benefits of Machined Parts in Aurora, CO?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company offer certain advantages that may not be possible with 3D printed parts or even injection molded parts in Aurora, CO. Some of the key advantages in Aurora, CO include:
Machined parts can be cut to a very high quality, based entirely on your Aurora, CO company’s specifications and tolerances. This means our CNC machinists can take a little extra time on tight-tolerance workpieces and individual features to ensure the finest quality.
Machined parts can be produced quicker than parts made via other manufacturing production like Aurora, CO molding. This is mainly due to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, being able to rely more on the CAD and CAM software our machinists use with the CNC machines. But the manufacturing procedure itself is also highly effective and efficient – several of our CNC machines have rapid rates of up to 45 yards per minute, even though we do not manufacture machined parts at those speeds. The speed and accuracy of our CNC machines, along with the one-step nature of machining combine to make machined parts some of the fastest to manufacture, reducing lead times for shorter time-to-market and practical rapid prototyping.
Machined parts can have a wide range of sizes and shapes. This is because CNC machines aren’t subjected to the same restrictions of molding, like thin walls and tapering. Machined parts can be thick and robust, yet their features can be fine and complex. Although machined parts have some limitations when it comes to, for example, internal sections and deep channels, machining still represents the most geometrically flexible manufacturing process for your Aurora, CO production run.
Because CNC machined parts are manufactured from digital CAD files, it’s possible to make alterations throughout the machining procedure, right up until the final moment. This is extremely helpful throughout our research and experimental development and prototyping phases, when our engineers or your team might want to make slight, fractional changes or refinements to the machined part or develop numerous versions. It also lessens the likelihood 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 strong compared to, say, for example, 3D printed parts, which can be predominantly flimsier along one axis, where one layer is built atop the next.
While molding parts deals with surface quality issues such as flow lines, jetting, and flash at the parting line, machined parts entirely avoid them. With a small amount of post-processing, which is accomplished in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to a high standard in terms of surface finish. Machining also gives a far superior surface finish to 3D printing, even before any secondary service has been started by our machinists. 3D printing can leave visible layer lines on the surface of the part, which then must be smoothed over via chemical treatment or sanding. Machined parts don’t produce these layer lines.
No Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ)
Machined parts are cost-effective and available in small quantities or even one-off parts because they are cut directly from a blank workpiece. It is a requirement when molding parts that you fabricate metal tooling – a procedure that takes a long time and can be costly. But machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in offering high-quality parts with no MOQ, making it a good option for smaller businesses in Aurora, CO, small production runs, and prototyping.
What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Aurora, CO?
The Roberson Machine Company facility is fully stocked with top-of-the-line CNC machinery capable of manufacturing precisely machined parts in a fraction of the time as our competitors. Our full range of equipment includes:
- CNC Horizontal Mills
- CNC Vertical Mills
- CNC Horizontal Lathes
All mills use rotary cutting to remove materials from a workpiece, but our CNC mills combine the cutting procedure with advanced computer control to allow for accurate and rapid production. Our horizontal CNC mills accurately and quickly shape your component material to the tightest of tolerances. Our CNC horizontal milling services benefit from the availability of our state-of-the-art 3 axis, 4 axis, and 5 axis machines.
Vertical CNC mills feature spindles that are set at 90 degrees to the floor, making them ideal for projects needing large production runs of moderately complex parts. Although horizontal mills are more beneficial in complicated milling jobs, vertical mills are capable of an array of designs for your company’s project in Aurora, CO.
In contrast to mills, which bank on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is removed. In comparison to manual lathes, which require a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically lessen the probability of human error, as well as the amount of labor. These advantages translate into marked decreases in cost and defect rates for you in Aurora, CO.
