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. Yet, some materials are easier to machine than others. Exceptionally hard materials are difficult to puncture with a cutting tool and may cause the tool to shake or vibrate more, thus possibly diminishing 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 give us a call 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 Fresno, CA Company?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company provide particular benefits that might not be possible with 3D printed parts or even injection molded parts in Fresno, CA. Some of the pivotal advantages in Fresno, CA are:
Machined parts can be cut to an exceptionally high standard, based entirely on your Fresno, CA company’s specifications and tolerances. This means our CNC machinists can take a little extra time on tight-tolerance pieces and individual features to ensure the finest quality.
Machined parts can be produced faster than pieces made via other production production like Fresno, CA molding. This is mainly due to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, therefore having the ability to rely more on the CAD and CAM software our machinists input into 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 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 shorter time-to-market and practical rapid prototyping.
Machined parts can have a wide variety of shapes and sizes. This is because CNC machines are not subjected to the same constraints 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 production procedure for your Fresno, CA production run.
Because CNC machined parts are produced from digital CAD files, it’s possible to make alterations throughout the machining procedure, right up until the last minute. This is extremely helpful throughout prototyping and our research and experimental development stages, when your staff or our engineers may want to make slight, fractional adjustments or refinements to the machined part or develop multiple versions. It also lessens 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 normally been cast or extruded. This makes them foundationally solid in comparison to, say, for example, 3D printed pieces, 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 in terms of surface finish. Machining also gives a 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 by 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 due to the fact that they are cut directly from a blank workpiece. For molded parts, it is necessary to fabricate metal tooling – a process 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 suitable for smaller businesses 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 as 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 permit rapid and precise production. Our horizontal CNC mills accurately and quickly shape your component material to the tightest of tolerances. Our CNC horizontal milling services revolve around state-of-the-art 3 axis, 4 axis, and 5 axis machines.
Vertical CNC mills feature spindles that are perpendicular to the ground, making them ideal for projects calling for large production runs of fairly complex parts. Although horizontal mills are more beneficial in difficult 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 rely on rotation of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is removed. Compared 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 decreases in cost and defect rates for your Fresno, CA company.
