Machined Parts New Orleans, LA. Machined parts are everywhere around you in New Orleans, LA. From tiny metal fasteners used on the motherboard of your computer to aircraft engine components, Roberson Machine Company has manufactured all sorts of parts using our proven process of CNC machining.
Machined parts are more than simply things manufactured utilizing our machinery. They are parts fabricated using our cutting machines, like our CNC lathes and mills. Machined parts can be plastic, metal, or occasionally perhaps some other materials, but they have to be made from a material that can be cut without majorly deforming. Machined parts come from a tried-and-tested manufacturing technique that we have used as an industry standard for decades. Regardless of your New Orleans, LA company’s industry, or in which component your machined parts are being employed, they meet all industry-specific certifications and standards. We make sure of it.

What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My New Orleans, LA Company?
Machined parts can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and plastics. But, some materials are easier to machine than others. Extremely hard materials are difficult to penetrate with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to vibrate more, thus likely diminishing quality. Extremely soft materials, as well as 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 New Orleans, LA?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company provide certain advantages that might not be possible with injection molded parts or even 3D printed parts in New Orleans, LA. Some of the key advantages in New Orleans, LA include:
Machined parts can be built to a very high standard, based entirely on your New Orleans, LA 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 parts made via other manufacturing processes like New Orleans, LA molding. This is partly due 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 process 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 and accuracy of our CNC machines combine to make machined parts some of the fastest to produce, diminishing 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 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 complex. Despite machined parts having some limitations when it comes to, for example, deep channels and internal sections, machining still represents the most geometrically flexible production process for your New Orleans, LA production run.
Because CNC machined parts are manufactured from digital CAD files, it is possible to make alterations throughout the machining procedure, right up until the final moment. This is extremely favorable throughout our research and experimental development and prototyping stages, when your team or our engineers might look to make slight, fractional adjustments or refinements to the machined part or create numerous versions. It also reduces the possibility of waste, as defective 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 pieces, which can be much weaker along one axis, where one layer is added on top of 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 accomplished in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to an extremely high level in terms of surface finish. Machining also provides a superior surface finish to 3D printing, even before any secondary service has been completed 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 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 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. However, machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in providing high-quality parts with no MOQ, making it a good option for smaller businesses in New Orleans, LA, small production runs, and prototyping.
What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in New Orleans, LA?
The Roberson Machine Company facility is fully stocked with high-end 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 the latest computer control to allow for rapid and accurate 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 needing large production runs of fairly complex parts. While horizontal mills are better suited for more complicated milling projects, vertical mills are adept in an array of designs for your company’s work plan in New Orleans, LA.
In contrast to mills, which bank 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 reduce the probability of human error, as well as the amount of labor. These benefits translate into marked decreases in cost and defect rates for your New Orleans, LA company.
