A Fast, Precise & Cost Effective Sheet Metal Fabrication Process

High Performance Laser Cutting & Sheet Metal Fabrication Specialists, Tyne & Wear


At Unicorn Sheet Metal Works, we use high performance laser cutting technology, in an effort to deliver an exact specification, precision solution every time, whatever the application. This is why we opted for renowned TRUMPF laser cutting machines, which are market leaders in laser technology. TRUMPF, are a German family owned business who provide laser cutting equipment for a vast array of end users including manufacturers and medical establishments. Highly respected in the world of sheet metal fabrication machinery, their laser technology can perform a versatile range of functions such as, sheet metal punching, forming, laser processing and bending.

Laser cutting has revolutionised the production of metal components, and provided a highly cost effective process. Alternative, less precise, slower and more costly methods included milling, guillotining and machining. As a result of our technology and expertise, at Unicorn we complete all folding, bending and punching operations in-house, unlike most other laser cutting specialists. This allows us to give a high performance service and increased customer satisfaction.
