Cutting Edge Fabrication (CEF) began as a production saw shop and continues its high precision metal cutting as a core service. We emerged as a metal fabricator leader providing high-quality, efficiency, speed, and unparalleled customer service. Today, our CNC metal cutting service offers a wide range of cutting machines that cut faster while producing the most consistent and accurate cuts with the highest cut qualities. Material thickness, metal type, and shape usually dictate the optimum cutting process. Rest assured, we have the perfect cutting solution for you! CEF is capable of handling material up to 10,000 pounds and 60 feet in length.
