Precision CNC Machining Services

Why choose us?

Leading Edge Manufacturing provides CNC machining services to customers located in Lafayette Parish and the surrounding areas.

We understand the importance of precision, which is why we use top quality AMADA machinery to manufacture high-quality end results.

Not all sheet metal fabrication shops are the same, one thing that sets us apart is our in-house parts department. By having our parts manufactured in-house, we are able to ensure that the quality of every aspect of our projects are up to our standards, even down to the smallest piece.

It allows us smaller lead times, broadens our capacity, creates a seamless transition into our sheet metal fabrication department, and lessens the margin of error that comes into play by bringing in third-party parts.

01

CNC SHEARING

Our CNC shear is a 1/4″ thick x 10′ length capacity mechanical power shear. The front operated power back gauge is equipped with a programmable controller which provides the operator with the ability to shear material accurately and efficiently. Sheared parts will meet +/- 0.015 part tolerances.

02

CNC PUNCHING

Our CNC punch has a punching accuracy of 0.003 inches and a turret speed of 30 R.P.M. It has a maximum hole diameter of 3.5 inches and a workable max sheet size of 50 x 196 inches. By using a combination of single hits and overlapping geometries, high volume parts can be produced in a much quicker time frame. Whenever large quantities of metal sheets are needed with repeated shapes, CNC punching is much more efficient than using a laser.

03

CNC LASER CUTTING

Our CNC carbon dioxide laser system has a maximum material thickness of 3/4” mild steel, 3/8” stainless
steel, and 5/16” aluminum. The LC 3015 has a maximum axis position speed of 4,724 IPM and positioning repeat ability of +/- 0.0002”.

04

CNC BENDING

Our CNC press brake has up to 8 axis forming capabilities for complex parts and reduced handling and is highly accurate and repeatable for tight tolerance parts. We have a maximum allowable tonnage of 138 tons and a maximum bend length of 120 degrees.
