Electronics Corporation (formerly known as Electronic Consultants
Inc.) was founded in 1976 as a consulting firm for electronics
and motion control.
LEC originally specialized
in helping client companies engineer and design a variety of products
- including AC and DC motor controls, bang-bang servo-controls,
and closed loop DC controls. While working with these clients,
LEC recognized a significant need in the factory automation market
for a low cost generic computer numerical control (CNC). In 1984,
the company installed the first version of its own CNC.
LEC moved to North
Carolina in 1985 where it has continued to develop and improve
products and is now applying its engineering expertise to marketing
and installing its own innovative controls in turnkey and retrofit
has more than 450 CNC controls installed throughout the USA -
including laser cutters, water jet cutters, EDM, mills,
lathes, robotic palletizers, glass cutting, cloth cutting, quilting,
glue laying, stone cutting, foam cutting machines, and "flying
cut to length".
