High Precision Sheet Metal Laser Cutting & Waterjetting


Engineering Fabrication Projects

Engineering Fabrication Projects.

Unicorn fabricate a wide variety of engineering requirements. In our extensive factory in Wallsend, Tyneside, we have the full range of equipment for sheet metal processing including folding, bending and tube rolling.

Marine Engineering Fabrications

Marine Engineering Fabrications

For undersea oil and gas extraction we have made the decoiling umbilical units. This large, 3 cubic meter frame unit, complete with electrics, is used to lower the feed pipes to the sea bed.

For our associated dust and fume extraction specialist contractors, Newgate Air Systems, we fabricate a high volume of stainless steel cubicles and structures.

Offshore Pipework Fabrication

Another offshore project involved us fabricating and rolling, large, heavy pipe sections. The pipework is required to carry away toxic fumes. The application is a highly critical one and the pipe welds had to be tested by an external body.

We also laser cut specialist plate for oil exploration equipment. This application requires work to very tight tolerances.

Fabrication & Assembly

At Unicorn we can undertake much more than sheet metal laser cutting and fabrication. We can produce fully fabricated and assembled products.

A good example of our laser cutting and assembly capabilities is a large rolling machine for a cable manufacturer. We manufactured the components and assembled the final product.

Engineering Fabrication Projects

Ductwork, Platforms & Acoustic Units

In a recent application for a coatings plant, we fabricated the ductwork to enable compliance with Health & Safety regs. Unicorn recently manufactured the extraction equipment for some welding bay facilities. We fabricated the steelwork, support frame, hopper, acoustic enclosure, noise reduction silencer and associated ductwork components.

Laser Cut Guards & Mountings

We regularly laser cut machine guards and mounting plates.

For one of our customers we laser cut and fabricate guards for the end of roller shafts.

Waterjet Cutting

For the pharmaceutical industry we cut by waterjet stainless steel flange ends for pipework.

For the aerospace sector we cut titanium profiles for components used in aircraft manufacture.

The defence industry takes waterjet cut hardox, armour plating components for military vehicle and we also waterjet cut brass fittings for ships. This process is also ideal for cutting wear-resistant steel.

We also cut by the waterjet process structural steelwork, support plates and decorative aluminium fittings for the architectural and construction sector.

Automotive & Offshore Standard Welding

Unicorn are British Standard Coded welders.

In 2012 Unicorn introduced a new welding procedure to enable us to meet BS EN ISO 15614 1;2004 + A2:22012 enabling us to broaden the scope of our engineering fabrication work.

We can also weld to automotive and offshore standard.

For earth movers and other heavy yellow goods we manufacture control panel mountings and undertake repairs to buckets and seat bases.
