What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Toledo, OH Company?
Machined parts can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and plastics. Yet, 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 possibly diminishing 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’d be open to discussing the possibility of 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 Benefits of Machined Parts in Toledo, OH?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company provide certain advantages that may not be possible with 3D printed parts or even injection molded parts in Toledo, OH. Some of the principal advantages for your Toledo, OH company include:
Machined parts can be built to a very high caliber, based primarily on your Toledo, OH company’s tolerances and specifications. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance parts and individual aspects to ensure the best quality.
Machined parts can be manufactured quicker than pieces made via other production processes like Toledo, OH molding. This is mostly because of to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, 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 efficient – some of our CNC machines have rapid rates of nearly 45 yards per minute, although we don’t machine parts at those speeds. The speed of our CNC machines, along with the one-step nature of machining combine to make machined parts some of the fastest to fabricate, diminishing lead times for shorter time-to-market and practical rapid prototyping.
Machined parts can have a wide variety of sizes and shapes. This is because CNC machines aren’t subject to the same restrictions of molding, like tapering and thin walls. Machined parts can be thick and robust, yet their features can be fine and detailed. Although machined parts have some limitations when it comes to, for example, internal sections and deep channels, machining remains the most geometrically flexible production process for your Toledo, OH production run.
Because CNC machined parts are produced from digital CAD files, it’s possible to make alterations throughout the machining process, right up until the final moment. This is extremely helpful throughout our research and experimental development and prototyping phases, when your staff or our engineers may need to make slight, fractional changes or refinements to the machined part or develop numerous versions. It also lessens the probability 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, say, for example, 3D printed parts, which can be much weaker along one axis, where one layer is built atop 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 a high standard regarding surface finish. Machining also gives a far superior surface finish to 3D printing, even before 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 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. It is a requirement when molding parts that you fabricate metal tooling – a process that seems endless 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 businesses in Toledo, OH, small production runs, and prototyping.
What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Toledo, OH?
The Roberson Machine Company facility is fully stocked with high-end 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 allow for rapid and precise manufacturing. Our horizontal CNC mills quickly and accurately cut 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 perpendicular to the ground, making them ideal for projects requiring large production runs of fairly intricate parts. Although horizontal mills are more beneficial in complicated milling jobs, vertical mills are capable of an array of designs for your company’s project in Toledo, OH.
As opposed to mills, which rely on rotation of the cutting tool, lathes instead spin the workpiece as material is removed. In comparison to manual lathes, which call for a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically lessen the amount of labor and the probability of human error. These benefits translate into decreases in cost and defect rates for your Toledo, OH company.
