Precision Laser Cut Sheet Metal Fabrication
June 29, 2013
Unicorn Sheet Metal Works are the acknowledged experts in the manufacture of high precision sheet metal fabrication.
Unicorn Sheet Metal Ltd have consistently invested in the latest metal fabrication technology. In fact their first venture into laser cutting territory with the Trumpf Trumatic 3030 was so successful that they have now invested in a second Trumpf 3050 capable of processing metal plate up to 20mm thick with a bed capacity of 3000mm x 1500mm.
Unicorn Sheet Metal Ltd have also invested in digital ‘nesting’ technology to maximise output while minimising cost.
Laser cut sheet metal offers many advantages over traditional sheet metal fabrications. Not only does it give a more accurate finish with much less wastage but it is also quicker and very often much more cost effective. Laser cutting machines are also able to directly accept DXF files.
Unicorn Sheet Metal Works still utilise the complete range of traditional sheet metal fabrication techniques including guillotining, machining, drilling, tapping, folding, bending and MIG & TIG welding. A 120 tonne Press Brake machines folds tubing of up to 6mm plate in lengths of up to 3 metres and a Pearson guillotine is able to cleanly slice sheet metal up to 3050mm in length to a thickness of 6mm.
Unicorn works with clients in every area of industry including aviation, shipping, automotive construction and repair, air conditioning, ventilation and the manufacture of machine parts. Recent projects include the manufacture of decoiling umbilical units for deep sea oil and gas extraction and the construction of soundproof acoustic enclosures for high powered fans.
