What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Chicago, IL Company?
Machined parts can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and plastics. Yet, some materials are easier to machine than others. Exceptionally hard materials are difficult to penetrate with a cutting tool and may cause the tool to shake or vibrate more, thus likely diminishing quality. Exceptionally soft materials, and materials with a low melting point, may warp 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 a conversation involving machining parts with other materials. Just give us a call at 573-646-3996 or reach out to 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 Chicago, IL Company?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company provide particular advantages that may not be possible with injection molded parts or even 3D printed parts in Chicago, IL. Some of the key advantages in Chicago, IL include:
Machined parts can be built to an exceptionally high standard, based primarily on your Chicago, IL company’s specifications and tolerances. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance parts and individual features to ensure the finest quality.
Machined parts can be produced quicker than components made via other manufacturing processes like Chicago, IL molding. This is mostly because of to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, therefore being able to rely more on the CAD and CAM software our machinists use with the CNC machines. But our manufacturing process itself is also highly effective and efficient – several of our CNC machines have rapid rates of nearly 45 yards per minute, even though we don’t machine 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 fabricate, diminishing 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 are not subject to the same restrictions of molding, like thin walls and tapering. Machined parts can be thick and robust, yet their features can be intricate and detailed. Despite machined parts having some restrictions when it comes to, for example, internal sections and deep channels, machining remains the most geometrically flexible production procedure for your Chicago, IL production run.
Due to the fact that CNC machined parts are manufactured from digital CAD files, it is possible to make alterations throughout the machining process, up until the final moment. This is extremely useful throughout our research and experimental development and prototyping phases, when your staff or our engineers might look to make slight, fractional adjustments or clarifications to the machined part or create numerous versions. It also reduces the possibility of waste, as defective parts are far less likely to be produced.
Machined parts are cut from solid pieces of material known as blanks, which have normally been cast or extruded. This makes them foundationally strong compared to, for example, 3D printed pieces, which can be much flimsier along one axis, where one layer is added atop the next.
While molding parts deals with surface quality issues like flow lines, jetting, and flash at the parting line, machined parts completely circumvent them. 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 gives a superior surface finish to 3D printing, even prior to any secondary service has been completed by our machinists. 3D printing leaves visible layer lines on the surface of the part, which must be smoothed over through 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. It is a requirement when molding parts that you fabricate metal tooling – a process that takes a long time and can be costly. But machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in providing top-quality parts with no MOQ, making it convenient for smaller businesses in Chicago, IL, small production runs, and prototyping.

What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Chicago, IL?
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 the latest computer control to permit precise and rapid production. Our horizontal CNC mills quickly and accurately cut your component material to tight tolerances. Our CNC horizontal milling services revolve around modern 3 axis, 4 axis, and 5 axis machines.
Vertical CNC mills feature spindles that are perpendicular to the ground, making them optimal for projects needing large production runs of moderately complex parts. Although horizontal mills are better suited for more complicated milling jobs, vertical mills are adept in an array of designs for your company’s project in Chicago, IL.
As opposed to mills, which rely on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead spin the workpiece as material is removed. Compared to manual lathes, which call for a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically reduce the probability of human error, as well as the amount of labor. These advantages translate into marked decreases in cost and defect rates for your Chicago, IL company.
