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. However, some materials are easier to machine than others. Exceptionally hard materials are difficult to puncture with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to shake or vibrate more, thus likely diminishing quality. Exceptionally soft materials, and 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’d be open to a conversation involving machining parts with other materials. Just call us at 573-646-3996 or contact 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 certain benefits that may not be possible with injection molded parts or even 3D printed parts in Sacramento, CA. Some of the principal advantages for your Sacramento, CA company are:
Machined parts can be built to an exceptionally high standard, based entirely on your Sacramento, CA company’s specifications and tolerances. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance workpieces and individual features to ensure the finest quality.
Machined parts can be manufactured faster than parts made via other production production like Sacramento, CA molding. This is mainly due 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 the manufacturing process itself is also highly efficient – several of our CNC machines have rapid rates of up to 45 yards per minute, although we do not machine 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 fabricate, reducing 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 aren’t subject to the same restrictions of molding, like thin walls and tapering. Machined parts can be thick and robust, yet their features can be fine 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 manufacturing process 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 useful throughout our research and experimental development and prototyping phases, when our engineers or your staff might look to make fractional adjustments or refinements to the machined part or create numerous versions. It also reduces 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 normally been extruded or cast. This makes them foundationally strong in comparison to, say, 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 avoid the surface quality issues associated with molding like flow lines, jetting, and flash at the parting line. With a moderate amount of post-processing, which is achieved in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to a 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 visible layer lines on the surface of the part, which must be smoothed over via sanding or chemical treatment. Machined parts do not have 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. It is a requirement when molding parts that you fabricate metal tooling – a process that seems endless and can be expensive. However, machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in offering high-quality parts with no MOQ, making it suitable for smaller companies 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 to remove materials from a workpiece, but our CNC mills combine the cutting procedure with the latest computer control to permit rapid and precise 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 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 ideal for projects requiring large production runs of moderately complex parts. Although horizontal mills are better suited for more difficult milling jobs, vertical mills are capable of a wide variety of designs for your business’s work plan in Sacramento, CA.
As opposed to mills, which rely on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is removed. In comparison to manual lathes, which require a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically lessen the amount of labor and the probability of human error. These advantages translate into decreases in cost and error rates for you in Sacramento, CA.
