What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Oklahoma City, OK Company?
Machined parts can be made from many different materials, including metals and plastics. But, some materials are easier to machine than others. Exceptionally hard materials are especially difficult to penetrate with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to shake or vibrate more, thus likely diminishing quality. Extremely soft materials, as well as materials with a low melting point, may warp upon contact with the cutting tool. Some of our most common machined part materials are listed below. As always, we’d be open to discussing the possibility of machining parts with other materials. Just call us 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 Benefits of Using Machined Parts at My Oklahoma City, OK Company?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company offer certain advantages that may not be possible with injection molded parts or even 3D printed parts in Oklahoma City, OK. Some of the key advantages in Oklahoma City, OK are:
Machined parts can be built to an exceptionally high caliber, based primarily on your Oklahoma City, OK company’s specifications and tolerances. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance pieces and individual aspects to guarantee the finest quality.
Machined parts can be produced faster than components made via other manufacturing production like Oklahoma City, OK molding. This is mostly because of to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, therefore being able to bank more on the CAD and CAM software our machinists input into 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, although we do not manufacture machined 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 shapes and sizes. This is due to the fact that CNC machines aren’t subject to the same constraints of molding, like tapering and thin walls. Machined parts can be robust and thick, 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 manufacturing process for your Oklahoma City, OK production run.
Due to the fact that CNC machined parts are manufactured from digital CAD files, it’s possible to make changes throughout the machining process, right up until the final moment. This is extremely favorable throughout prototyping and our research and experimental development phases, when your team or our engineers may want to make fractional changes or clarifications to the machined part or develop multiple versions. It also lessens the probability 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 typically been extruded or cast. This makes them foundationally solid compared to, say, for example, 3D printed pieces, which can be much weaker along one axis, where one layer is built atop the next.
Machined parts completely circumvent the surface quality issues associated with molding such as 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 standard regarding 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 via 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 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 takes a long time 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 companies in Oklahoma City, OK, small production runs, and prototyping.

What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Oklahoma City, OK?
The Roberson Machine Company facilities are fully stocked with high-end CNC machinery capable of manufacturing precisely 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 allow for precise and rapid production. Our horizontal CNC mills accurately and quickly shape your component material to the tightest of 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 ideal for jobs needing large production runs of moderately intricate parts. Although horizontal mills are more beneficial in difficult milling jobs, vertical mills are capable of an array of designs for your business’s project in Oklahoma City, OK.
In contrast to mills, which bank on rotation of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is cut. In comparison 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 error rates for your Oklahoma City, OK company.
