What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Los Angeles, CA Company?
Machined parts can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and plastics. However, some materials are easier to machine than others. Extremely hard materials are especially difficult to penetrate with a cutting tool and may cause the tool to vibrate more, thus possibly diminishing quality. Extremely 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 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 Using Machined Parts at My Los Angeles, CA Company?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company offer certain benefits that may not be possible with 3D printed parts or even injection molded parts in Los Angeles, CA. Some of the key advantages in Los Angeles, CA are:
Machined parts can be cut to a very high standard, based entirely on your Los Angeles, CA company’s tolerances and specifications. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance workpieces and individual aspects to ensure the finest quality.
Machined parts can be manufactured faster than components made via other production production like Los Angeles, CA molding. This is mainly due 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 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 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 sizes and shapes. This is due to the fact that CNC machines aren’t 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 complex. Although machined parts have some limitations when it comes to, for example, deep channels and internal sections, machining remains the most geometrically flexible production process for your Los Angeles, CA production run.
Because CNC machined parts are made from digital CAD files, it is possible to make alterations throughout the machining process, right up until the final moment. This is extremely favorable throughout prototyping and our research and experimental development phases, when our engineers or your staff might look to make fractional adjustments or clarifications to the machined part or develop multiple versions. It also lessens the possibility of waste, as defective 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 extruded or cast. This makes them foundationally strong compared to, say, for example, 3D printed pieces, which can be predominantly weaker along one axis, where one layer is added 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 circumvent them. With a moderate amount of post-processing, which is attained in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to a high standard regarding surface finish. Machining also gives a far superior surface finish to 3D printing, even prior to any secondary service has been carried out by our machinists. 3D printing can leave noticeable 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 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 expensive. However, machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in offering top-quality parts with no MOQ, making it a good option for smaller businesses in Los Angeles, CA, small production runs, and prototyping.
What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Los Angeles, CA?
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 compared to 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 allow for rapid and accurate manufacturing. Our horizontal CNC mills accurately and quickly cut 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 perpendicular to the ground, making them ideal for jobs calling for large production runs of moderately complex parts. Although horizontal mills are more beneficial in complicated milling projects, vertical mills are capable of an array of designs for your company’s work plan in Los Angeles, CA.
As opposed to mills, which bank on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is subtracted. Compared to manual lathes, which need a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically reduce the probability of human error, as well as the amount of labor. These benefits translate into marked decreases in cost and error rates for you in Los Angeles, CA.
