What Materials Can Be Used For Machined Parts For My Tulsa, OK Company?
Machined parts can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and plastics. But, some materials are easier to machine than others. Extremely hard materials are difficult to penetrate with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to shake or vibrate more, thus likely reducing quality. Exceptionally soft materials, and materials with a low melting point, may warp upon contact with the cutting tool. Several 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 Advantages of Using Machined Parts at My Tulsa, OK Company?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company offer particular advantages that may not be possible with injection molded parts or even 3D printed parts in Tulsa, OK. Some of the key advantages in Tulsa, OK are:
Machined parts can be made to an exceptionally high standard, based primarily on your Tulsa, OK company’s tolerances and specifications. 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 manufacturing processes like Tulsa, OK molding. This is mainly due to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, therefore being able to bank more on the CAD and CAM software our machinists use with the CNC machines. But the manufacturing procedure itself is also highly effective and efficient – some of our CNC machines have rapid rates of nearly 45 yards per minute, although we do not machine 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, reducing lead times for shorter time-to-market and practical rapid prototyping.
Machined parts can have a wide variety of shapes and sizes. This is due to the fact that CNC machines aren’t subjected to the same limitations of molding, like thin walls and tapering. Machined parts can be thick and robust, yet their features can be fine and complex. Despite machined parts having some limitations when it comes to, for example, internal sections and deep channels, machining remains the most geometrically flexible manufacturing procedure for your Tulsa, 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 procedure, 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 fractional changes or clarifications to the machined part or develop numerous versions. It also reduces the possibility of waste, as defective 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 cast or extruded. This makes them foundationally strong compared to, say, for example, 3D printed parts, which can be predominantly flimsier along one axis, where one layer is built on top of the next.
Machined parts entirely avoid 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 accomplished in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to a high level in terms of surface finish. Machining also gives a superior surface finish to 3D printing, even before any secondary service has been completed 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 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 because they are cut directly from a blank workpiece. It is a requirement when molding parts that you fabricate metal tooling – a procedure that seems endless and can be expensive. However, machining with Roberson Machine Company is unique in providing top-quality parts with no MOQ, making it suitable for smaller businesses in Tulsa, OK, small production runs, and prototyping.

What CNC Machinery is Necessary to Make Machined Parts For My Company in Tulsa, OK?
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 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 the latest computer control to permit rapid and precise production. Our horizontal CNC mills quickly and accurately cut your component material to tight 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 perpendicular to the ground, making them optimal for jobs requiring large production runs of fairly complex parts. While horizontal mills are better suited for more complicated milling jobs, vertical mills are adept in a wide variety of designs for your company’s work plan in Tulsa, OK.
As opposed to mills, which bank on spinning of the cutting tool, lathes instead rotate the workpiece as material is cut. Compared to manual lathes, which need a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically diminish the probability of human error, as well as the amount of labor. These benefits translate into marked decreases in cost and defect rates for you in Tulsa, OK.
