Why Choose Us
Chesterton Light Engineering was founded in 1973 to produce high precision machined components.
The company was acquired by its present owners in 1989 and has steadily expanded its customer base ever since. In 1995 the Company outgrew its original premises in Bottisham and moved to a modern factory in Burwell. In 2001 the move was made to its present site in Newmarket. This significantly increased the floor area and allowed for further expansion.
During the last few years significant investment has been made in CNC machines tools which has increased capacity and reduced lead times. The Company specializes in CNC precision machining in a wide variety of materials, CNC sheet metal work and fabrication also design and rapid prototyping.
With the ability to turn 300mm diameter in a chuck and a capacity of 65mm through the bar-feed spindle Chesterton Light Engineering can cater for most turning jobs. With all our turning centres linked to our cad-cam facilities, we can off line program to ensure lean manufacturing and short delivery times.
With our state of the art CAD/CAM system linked directly to our CNC machines we can achieve lean manufacture and adopt a "right first time" policy.
Off line programming increases our delivery performance as "down time" is kept to a minimum.
