Unicorn Sheet Metal Works are one of the leading UK companies for manufacturing metal components, metal plating and machine parts. Unicorn have a strong record in combining the latest innovations in cutting edge technology with traditional techniques in sheet metal fabrication.
With two high precision laser cutting machines already installed in their processing plant near Newcastle in the North East of England, Unicorn have continued in their investment in the latest technology with the acquisition of a Swiss-engineered Bystronic Byjet waterjet cutting system.
Waterjet systems are the perfect solution for accurately cutting a host of metals and other materials. Waterjet works on reflective metals – including stainless steel, titanium, copper and brass – where lasers can ‘bounce’ off shinier surfaces.
Unicorn’s new Bystronic Byjet Classic 4020 waterjet machine is capable of cutting through sheet metal over 100mm thick. Dual cutting heads and a generous 4m x 2m bed area, supported by CAD programming and sprayhead water pressure in excess of 3,000bar give Unicorn the ability to cut through large plate, twice as fast and more efficiently than ever before. This leads to great results, a quick turnaround time, excellent quality products and a more economical service for their customers.
Unicorn work with manufacturing companies from all over the UK and in Europe. They produce brass machine parts from the offshore oil industry, titanium profiles for aerospace manufactures, copper components for electricity distribution and armour plating for defence contractors. In fact the list goes on and on.
With traditional metal fabrication techniques at their disposal, Unicorn Sheet Metal Works are able to complete the manufacturing process for most metal products. From MIG & TIG welding to rolling, drilling and pressing, Unicorn have the skills, tools and experience that count.
