What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Memphis, TN Company?
Machined parts can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and plastics. Yet, some materials are easier to machine than others. Extremely hard materials are difficult to penetrate with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to shake or vibrate more, thus possibly reducing quality. Extremely soft materials, as well as materials with a low melting point, may warp once coming into contact with the cutting tool. Several of our most common machined part materials are listed below. As always, we are available to a conversation involving machining parts with other materials. Just give us a call 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 Memphis, TN?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company provide certain benefits that may not be possible with 3D printed parts or even injection molded parts in Memphis, TN. Some of the key advantages in Memphis, TN include:
Machined parts can be built to a very high standard, based primarily on your Memphis, TN company’s specifications and tolerances. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance workpieces and individual aspects to guarantee the finest quality.
Machined parts can be produced faster than components made via other manufacturing processes like Memphis, TN molding. This is mostly due 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 do not 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 produce, diminishing lead times for practical rapid prototyping and shorter time-to-market.
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 constraints of molding, like thin walls and tapering. Machined parts can be thick and robust, yet their features can be intricate and detailed. Although machined parts have some restrictions when it comes to, for example, internal sections and deep channels, machining remains the most geometrically flexible production procedure for your Memphis, TN production run.
Due to the fact that 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 during prototyping and our research and experimental development stages, when your staff or our engineers may need to make slight, fractional changes or clarifications to the machined part or create numerous versions. It also lessens the likelihood of waste, as erroneous parts are far less likely to come about.
Machined parts are cut from solid pieces of material known as blanks, which have usually been extruded or cast. This makes them foundationally solid in comparison to, say, for example, 3D printed parts, which can be much weaker 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 entirely avoid them. With a small amount of post-processing, which is accomplished 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 through sanding or chemical treatment. Machined parts do not have 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 expensive. But machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in providing high-quality parts with no MOQ, making it suitable for smaller companies in Memphis, TN, small production runs, and prototyping.

What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Memphis, TN?
The Roberson Machine Company facility is fully stocked with top-of-the-line 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 the latest computer control to permit rapid and accurate manufacturing. 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 projects requiring large production runs of fairly intricate parts. While horizontal mills are better suited for more complicated milling projects, vertical mills are capable of an array of designs for your company’s work plan in Memphis, TN.
In contrast to mills, which rely on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead spin the workpiece as material is cut. Compared to manual lathes, which call for a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically lessen the amount of labor and the probability of human error. These benefits translate into marked decreases in cost and error rates for you in Memphis, TN.
