What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Reno, NV 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 difficult to puncture with a cutting tool and may cause the tool to shake or vibrate more, thus possibly diminishing quality. Exceptionally 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’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 Advantages of Machined Parts in Reno, NV?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company offer particular benefits that may not be possible with injection molded parts or even 3D printed parts in Reno, NV. Some of the principal advantages in Reno, NV are:
Machined parts can be made to an exceptionally high caliber, based primarily on your Reno, NV company’s tolerances and specifications. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance pieces and individual features to ensure the best quality.
Machined parts can be manufactured quicker than pieces made via other production production like Reno, NV molding. This is mostly because of to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, being able to rely 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 almost 45 yards per minute, although we don’t produce 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 practical rapid prototyping and shorter time-to-market.
Machined parts can have a wide range of sizes and shapes. This is because CNC machines are not subject to the same constraints of molding, like tapering and thin walls. Machined parts can be robust and thick, 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 process for your Reno, NV production run.
Because CNC machined parts are made from digital CAD files, it is possible to make alterations throughout the machining procedure, up until the final moment. This is extremely useful during prototyping and our research and experimental development phases, when your staff or our engineers may want to make slight, fractional adjustments or refinements to the machined part or create numerous versions. It also lessens the probability 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 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 completely circumvent them. With a moderate amount of post-processing, which is achieved in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to an extremely high level in terms of surface finish. Machining also provides a far superior surface finish to 3D printing, even prior to any secondary service has been started by our machinists. 3D printing leaves noticeable layer lines on the surface of the part, which then 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 cut directly from a blank workpiece, making it cost-effective and possible to order extremely small quantities or even one-off parts. For molded parts, it is necessary to fabricate metal tooling – a procedure that takes a long time and can be expensive. However, machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in providing top-quality parts with no MOQ, making it convenient for smaller companies in Reno, NV, small production runs, and prototyping.

What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Reno, NV?
The Roberson Machine Company facilities are fully stocked with top-of-the-line CNC machinery capable of manufacturing accurately 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 advanced computer control to permit rapid and accurate production. Our horizontal CNC mills quickly and accurately cut your component material to the tightest of 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 set at 90 degrees to the floor, making them optimal for jobs calling for large production runs of fairly intricate parts. Although horizontal mills are more beneficial in complicated milling projects, vertical mills are adept in a wide variety of designs for your business’s work plan in Reno, NV.
In contrast to mills, which bank on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is subtracted. In comparison to manual lathes, which require a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically reduce the amount of labor and the probability of human error. These benefits translate into marked decreases in cost and defect rates for you in Reno, NV.
