Machined Parts Mobile, AL
Machined Parts Mobile, AL. From tiny metal fasteners used on the motherboard of your computer to aircraft engine components, machined parts are everywhere around you in Mobile, AL. Roberson Machine Company has produced all sorts of machined parts using our proven process of CNC machining.
Machined parts are more than simply things built using our machinery. They are parts fabricated using our cutting machines, such as our CNC mills and lathes. Machined parts can be metal, plastic, or occasionally even some other materials, but they must be made from a material that can be cut without excessively deforming. Machined parts come from a tried-and-tested manufacturing method that we have used as an industry standard for decades. Regardless of your Mobile, AL company’s industry, or in which piece of equipment your machined parts are being employed, they meet all industry-specific certifications and standards. We guarantee it.
Roberson Machine Company is a custom manufacturer of precision CNC machined parts. We make it easy to receive the custom machined parts you need precisely when you need them in Mobile, AL. Give us a call right away at 573-646-3996 or reach out to us online.
What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Mobile, AL Company?
Machined parts can be made from many different materials, including metals and plastics. However, 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 vibrate more, thus possibly reducing quality. Exceptionally soft materials, and materials with a low melting point, may become damaged upon contact with the cutting tool. Some 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 reach out to 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 Mobile, AL?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company provide particular benefits that may not be possible with 3D printed parts or even injection molded parts in Mobile, AL. Some of the pivotal advantages in Mobile, AL include:
Machined parts can be made to a very high caliber, based primarily on your Mobile, AL company’s specifications and tolerances. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance workpieces and individual features to guarantee the best quality.
Machined parts can be manufactured faster than parts made via other production processes like Mobile, AL molding. This is partly because of to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, therefore being able to bank more on the CAD and CAM software our machinists use with the CNC machines. But our manufacturing procedure itself is also highly efficient – some of our CNC machines have rapid rates of up to 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 manufacture, reducing lead times for shorter time-to-market and practical rapid prototyping.
Machined parts can have a wide range of sizes and shapes. This is because CNC machines are not subject to the same limitations of molding, like thin walls and tapering. 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, internal sections and deep channels, machining still represents the most geometrically flexible manufacturing procedure for your Mobile, AL production run.
Because CNC machined parts are made from digital CAD files, it is possible to make alterations throughout the machining procedure, right up until the last minute. This is extremely useful during prototyping and our research and experimental development phases, when our engineers or your team may look to make fractional changes or clarifications to the machined part or create multiple 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 cast or extruded. This makes them foundationally solid in comparison to, say, for example, 3D printed pieces, which can be predominantly weaker along one axis, where one layer is added on top of the next.
Machined parts entirely avoid the surface quality issues associated with molding like flow lines, jetting, and flash at the parting line. With a small amount of post-processing, which is attained in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to an extremely high level regarding surface finish. Machining also provides a 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 by 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 costly. 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 Mobile, AL, small production runs, and prototyping.

What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Mobile, AL?
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 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 allow for rapid and accurate manufacturing. Our horizontal CNC mills quickly and accurately 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 set at 90 degrees to the floor, making them optimal for projects needing large production runs of moderately complex parts. Although horizontal mills are more beneficial in difficult milling jobs, vertical mills are adept in a wide variety of designs for your business’s project in Mobile, AL.
In contrast to mills, which bank on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead spin the workpiece as material is cut. In comparison 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 decreases in cost and error rates for your Mobile, AL company.
