Machined Parts Fort Wayne, IN. Machined parts are everywhere around you in Fort Wayne, IN. From tiny metal fasteners used on the motherboard of your computer to aircraft engine components, Roberson Machine Company has manufactured all sorts of parts using our proven process of CNC machining.
Machined parts are more than simply objects manufactured using our machinery. They are parts constructed using our cutting machines, such as our CNC lathes and mills. Machined parts can be plastic, metal, or even some other materials on occasion, but they have to be made from a workpiece that can be cut without majorly deforming. Machined parts come from a tried-and-tested manufacturing method that we have used as an industry standard for decades. Regardless of your Fort Wayne, IN company’s industry, or in which piece of equipment your machined parts are being employed, they meet all industry-specific standards and certifications.

What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Fort Wayne, IN Company?
Machined parts can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and plastics. But, some materials are easier to machine than others. Exceptionally hard materials are difficult to penetrate with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to vibrate more, thus likely diminishing quality. Exceptionally soft materials, and materials with a low melting point, may deform 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 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 Benefits of Machined Parts in Fort Wayne, IN?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company offer particular advantages that may not be possible with injection molded parts or even 3D printed parts in Fort Wayne, IN. Some of the pivotal advantages for your Fort Wayne, IN company include:
Machined parts can be built to a very high standard, based entirely on your Fort Wayne, IN 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 manufactured faster than pieces made via other manufacturing production like Fort Wayne, IN molding. This is partly because of to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, being able to bank more on the CAD and CAM software our machinists input into the CNC machines. But the manufacturing procedure itself is also highly efficient – several of our CNC machines have rapid rates of nearly 45 yards per minute, although we don’t manufacture machined parts at those speeds. The one-step nature of machining and the speed and accuracy of our CNC machines combine to make machined parts some of the fastest to manufacture, reducing lead times for practical rapid prototyping and shorter time-to-market.
Machined parts can have a wide range of shapes and sizes. This is due to the fact that CNC machines are not subjected to the same restrictions of molding, like tapering and thin walls. 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 remains the most geometrically flexible manufacturing procedure for your Fort Wayne, IN production run.
Due to the fact that CNC machined parts are made from digital CAD files, it is possible to make changes throughout the machining process, right up until the final moment. This is extremely useful throughout our research and experimental development and prototyping phases, when our engineers or your team may need to make slight, fractional adjustments or clarifications to the machined part or create numerous versions. It also reduces the possibility of waste, as erroneous parts are far less likely to come off the machines.
Machined parts are cut from solid pieces of material known as blanks, which have typically been cast or extruded. This makes them foundationally solid compared to, for example, 3D printed parts, which can be much flimsier along one axis, where one layer is added atop the next.
Machined parts entirely avoid the surface quality issues associated with molding such as flow lines, jetting, and flash at the parting line. With a moderate amount of post-processing, which is attained in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to a high level regarding surface finish. Machining also gives a superior surface finish to 3D printing, even before any secondary service has been carried out by our machinists. 3D printing can leave visible layer lines on the surface of the part, which must be smoothed over by chemical treatment or sanding. Machined parts do not 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. For molded parts, it is necessary to fabricate metal tooling – a process that takes a long time and can be costly. However, machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in providing high-quality parts with no MOQ, making it suitable for smaller businesses in Fort Wayne, IN, small production runs, and prototyping.

What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Fort Wayne, IN?
The Roberson Machine Company facility is fully stocked with high-end CNC machinery capable of manufacturing accurately 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 accurately and quickly shape 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 jobs needing large production runs of moderately complex parts. Although horizontal mills are better suited for more difficult milling projects, vertical mills are adept in an array of designs for your company’s project in Fort Wayne, IN.
In contrast to mills, which bank on rotation of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is removed. In comparison to manual lathes, which call for a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically reduce the amount of labor and the probability of human error. These advantages translate into marked decreases in cost and error rates for your Fort Wayne, IN company.
