Cutting Edge Fabrication (CEF) began as a production metal cutting shop and continues its precision plate cutting as a core service. We emerged as an industry-leading supplier providing high-quality, efficiency, speed, and unparalleled customer service. Today, our CNC plate cutting machines run at high speeds, increased productivity, producing the most consistent and accurate cuts, with the highest cut quality. Material thickness and metal type usually dictate the optimum cutting process - laser, plasma, or oxy-fuel cutting technology. CEF is capable of handling material up to 10,000 pounds and 60 feet in length.
Metal Type Cutting
aluminum, AR (abrasion-resistant) plate, armor plate, carbon steel, heavy steel plate, high-alloy steel, iron, manganese, nickel-based alloys, sheet metal, stainless steel, steel, and structural steel
Metal Shape Cutting
thick plate and sheet
CNC Laser Cutting
CEF’s CNC laser cutting service features a state-of-the-art 6000-watt laser beam to produce high-quality laser cut parts. Our laser cutter cuts thicker materials including mild steel, aluminum, and stainless steel on 60” x 120” dual pallet tables. Laser-cut metal parts are precise, even outperforming waterjet cutting.
Laser Cut Thickness Capacity
- 1” Mild Steel (25.4mm)
- .75” Stainless Steel (19.05mm)
- .5” Aluminum (12.7mm)
CNC Plasma Cutting
Our CNC plasma cutting machine features a state-of-the-art 400-amp plasma cutter to produce high-quality plasma cut parts, with full-contour beveling capability saving time and money, eliminating the need for a second operation. It is a very cost-effective, precise method to cut complex shapes out of the metal plate cleanly. Our plasma torch cuts thicker materials, including steel, mild steel, aluminum, and stainless steel on an 11’ x 28’ cutting table.
Plasma Cut Thickness Capacity
- 2” Thick Steel (50.8mm)
- 1.75” Stainless Steel (44.45mm)
- 1.5” Aluminum (38.1mm)
CNC Flame Cutting
Cutting Edge Fabrication’s CNC precision flame cutting services feature two state-of-the-art oxy-fuel torches to produce high-quality flame cut parts. It is a very cost-effective, precise method to cut complex shapes out of thick steel plate on an 11’ x 28’ burn table, and it bevel cuts as well.
