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. Yet, some materials are easier to machine than others. Exceptionally hard materials are difficult to penetrate with a cutting tool, perhaps causing the tool to vibrate more, thus possibly reducing quality. Extremely soft materials, and 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 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 Advantages of Using Machined Parts at My Tulsa, OK Company?
Machined parts from Roberson Machine Company provide certain advantages that may not be possible with 3D printed parts or even injection molded parts in Tulsa, OK. Some of the pivotal advantages for your Tulsa, OK company are:
Machined parts can be cut to an exceptionally high caliber, based entirely on your Tulsa, OK company’s specifications and tolerances. This means our CNC machinists can take extra time on tight-tolerance workpieces and individual aspects to ensure the finest quality.
Machined parts can be produced quicker than components made via other production processes like Tulsa, OK molding. This is mainly because of to the lack of labor-intensive tooling, being able to bank more on the CAD and CAM software our machinists use with the CNC machines. But our manufacturing process itself is also highly effective and efficient – several of our CNC machines have rapid rates of almost 45 yards per minute, even though we do not produce machined parts at those speeds. The one-step nature of machining and the speed 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 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 procedure for your Tulsa, OK production run.
Because CNC machined parts are made from digital CAD files, it’s possible to make changes throughout the machining procedure, up until the final moment. This is extremely helpful during our research and experimental development and prototyping phases, when our engineers or your team may want to make slight, fractional adjustments or clarifications to the machined part or create numerous versions. It also lessens the probability 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 normally been extruded or cast. This makes them foundationally strong in comparison to, for example, 3D printed pieces, which can be predominantly weaker along one axis, where one layer is built 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 small amount of post-processing, which is accomplished in our value-added services, machined parts can be brought to a high standard in terms of surface finish. Machining also provides a far superior surface finish to 3D printing, even before any secondary service has been completed 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 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 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 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 in the subtractive manufacturing process of removing materials from a workpiece, but our CNC mills combine the cutting procedure with advanced computer control to allow for precise and rapid production. Our horizontal CNC mills quickly and accurately cut your component material to tight tolerances. Our CNC horizontal milling services revolve around 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 ideal for projects needing large production runs of moderately intricate parts. Although horizontal mills are more beneficial in complicated milling projects, vertical mills are capable of a wide variety of designs for your business’s work plan in Tulsa, OK.
As opposed to mills, which bank on rotation of the cutting tool, lathes instead spin the workpiece as material is removed. Compared to manual lathes, which call for a degree of expertise to operate, CNC lathes drastically diminish the probability of human error, as well as the amount of labor. These advantages translate into decreases in cost and error rates for you in Tulsa, OK.
