What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Fresno, CA 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 and may cause the tool to vibrate more, thus likely reducing quality. Exceptionally soft materials, as well as materials with a low melting point, may become damaged upon contact with the cutting tool. Several of our most common machined part materials are listed below. As always, we are available to discussing the possibility of machining parts with other materials. Just call us 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 Advantages of Machined Parts in Fresno, CA?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company offer certain advantages that might not be possible with injection molded parts or even 3D printed parts in Fresno, CA. Some of the key advantages in Fresno, CA include:
Machined parts can be made to a very high caliber, based primarily on your Fresno, CA company’s specifications and tolerances. This means our CNC machinists can take a little extra time on tight-tolerance parts and individual aspects to guarantee the finest quality.
Machined parts can be produced faster than parts made via other production production like Fresno, CA 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 use with the CNC machines. But the manufacturing procedure itself is also highly efficient – some of our CNC machines have rapid rates of nearly 45 yards per minute, although we do not manufacture machined parts at those speeds. The one-step nature of machining and the speed of our CNC machines combine to make machined parts some of the fastest to manufacture, diminishing 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 subject to the same limitations of molding, like tapering and thin walls. Machined parts can be robust and thick, yet their features can be fine and detailed. Despite machined parts having some restrictions when it comes to, for example, deep channels and internal sections, machining still represents the most geometrically flexible production process for your Fresno, CA production run.
Because CNC machined parts are made from digital CAD files, it’s possible to make alterations throughout the machining procedure, up until the final moment. This is extremely favorable throughout our research and experimental development and prototyping stages, when your staff or our engineers might want to make fractional adjustments or refinements to the machined part or create numerous versions. It also lessens the likelihood of waste, as erroneous parts are far less likely to be produced.
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 built on top of the next.
While molding parts deals with surface quality issues like flow lines, jetting, and flash at the parting line, machined parts entirely avoid them. With a small amount of post-processing, which is attained in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to a high level in terms of surface finish. Machining also gives a far superior surface finish to 3D printing, even prior to any secondary service has been completed by our machinists. 3D printing can leave noticeable layer lines on the surface of the part, which then must be smoothed over via 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 procedure that seems endless and can be expensive. But machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in offering high-quality parts with no MOQ, making it a good option for smaller companies in Fresno, CA, small production runs, and prototyping.

What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Fresno, CA?
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 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 the latest computer control to permit precise and rapid production. Our horizontal CNC mills accurately and quickly cut 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 perpendicular to the ground, making them ideal for projects requiring large production runs of fairly complex parts. While horizontal mills are better suited for more complicated milling jobs, vertical mills are adept in an array of designs for your business’s work plan in Fresno, CA.
In contrast to mills, which bank on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is cut. Compared to manual lathes, which need a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically diminish the probability of human error, as well as the amount of labor. These benefits translate into decreases in cost and error rates for you in Fresno, CA.
