CNC Machining – Plastic & Metal Parts in Days


A subtractive manufacturing process, CNC Machining is a computer controlled process offering greater precision and repeatability than manual machining.

“Thanks very much for the excellent service. We received the models and they were great. It is always a pleasure dealing with a company that delivers what you ask for on time and within an acceptable budget.”


Using the very latest CNC Master CAM X8 software to create optimised tool paths LPE can produce concept models, casting patterns and final production units in a wide range of customer specified materials including plastics and metals.

With the introduction of the Hurco 5-Axis we can produce more complex parts with a reduced cycle.  This gives you more options and ensures that you can get your CNC parts when you need them.

We have also recently introduced a Hurco 3-Axis machine following the popularity of our CNC processes.  This machine provides us with additional capacity and allows us to ensure that customer orders are available as fast as possible to meet even the tightest lead times.
