What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Sacramento, CA 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 especially difficult to puncture with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to vibrate more, thus likely reducing quality. Extremely soft materials, as well as materials with a low melting point, may warp once coming into 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 call us 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 Benefits of Machined Parts in Sacramento, CA?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company provide particular advantages that may not be possible with 3D printed parts or even injection molded parts in Sacramento, CA. Some of the principal advantages in Sacramento, CA are:
Machined parts can be made to a very high caliber, based primarily on your Sacramento, CA company’s tolerances and specifications. This means our CNC machinists can take a little extra time on tight-tolerance pieces and individual features to ensure the best quality.
Machined parts can be produced quicker than parts made via other production processes like Sacramento, CA molding. This is mostly due to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, therefore having the ability 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 – some of our CNC machines have rapid rates of up to 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, reducing lead times for practical rapid prototyping and shorter time-to-market.
Machined parts can have a wide range of shapes and sizes. This is because CNC machines aren’t subject to the same limitations of molding, like tapering and thin walls. Machined parts can be thick and robust, yet their features can be intricate and complex. 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 Sacramento, CA production run.
Due to the fact that CNC machined parts are made from digital CAD files, it’s possible to make changes throughout the machining procedure, right up until the final moment. This is extremely helpful throughout our research and experimental development and prototyping phases, when your team or our engineers may look to make slight, fractional adjustments or refinements to the machined part or develop numerous versions. It also lessens 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 parts, which can be predominantly flimsier along one axis, where one layer is added on top of the next.
Machined parts completely circumvent 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 achieved 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 prior to any secondary service has been started by our machinists. 3D printing can leave visible layer lines on the surface of the part, which must be smoothed over through chemical treatment or sanding. 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 procedure that takes a long time and can be costly. But machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in providing high-quality parts with no MOQ, making it suitable for smaller businesses in Sacramento, CA, small production runs, and prototyping.
What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Sacramento, CA?
The Roberson Machine Company facilities are 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 advanced computer control to permit rapid and precise manufacturing. Our horizontal CNC mills quickly and accurately shape your component material to tight 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 calling for large production runs of fairly intricate parts. Although horizontal mills are more beneficial in difficult milling jobs, vertical mills are capable of an array of designs for your company’s project in Sacramento, CA.
In contrast to mills, which bank on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is subtracted. Compared 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 advantages translate into decreases in cost and defect rates for you in Sacramento, CA.
