Precision CNC Turning Services from Leech Industries

Leech offers a number of benefits to our customers to produce the highest quality parts in efficient lead times.

One-and-Done Machining

Our equipment has multitasking capabilities that allow us to complete parts in a single setup. Because our machines have various tools in them, we don’t have to put the same part through multiple machines.

We have 9-axis capabilities thanks to our Mazda INTEGREX i-200 machine, allowing up to perform high-precision milling while simultaneously turning the part.

Our one-and-done machining capabilities offer various benefits to our customers, namely reduced lead times and greater quality.

Cellular Manufacturing Capabilities

We’ve embraced cellular manufacturing, allowing us to remain adaptable and maximize productivity in our turning center. When a project demands it, we are willing to group specific pieces of machinery together to ensure the right setup for the task at hand. In particular, this allows us to be strategic in our CNC turning services, so we can seamlessly transition our machines into long production runs when necessary. This approach optimizes our operations, streamlines production and reduces lead times.


Prototype to Production

Leech Industries handles everything from prototype lots to full production lots. We can run hundreds and thousands of parts through our turning center, but we also run one-off jobs for customers who need parts more quickly. Our ability to expedite low-volume work allows us to get customers their parts in just days. 

Range of Machines

Our state-of-the-art facilities contain various CNC turning machines that enable us to put the right-sized parts on the correct machines.

Why exactly is this important? As the size of the machine changes, so does the chuck pressure. The force with which the chuck holds a part, which increases or decreases depending on the machine’s size, significantly impacts how effectively and safely the part is held during machining. Selecting the right-sized machine ensures that the chuck pressure is appropriate for the job.

Having access to a range of turning equipment, with chuck sizes from 6” to 10”, allows us to turn parts as small as ⅛” and as large as 15”. The versatility of our CNC turning equipment effectively improves quality, minimizes the risk of errors and allows our parts to achieve their desired results.
