Precision Engineering of Sheet Metal by Waterjet Cutting

Newgate Air Systems are proud to share the happy news of our sister company, Unicorn Sheet Metal Works. Unicorn are delighted to announce the arrival of their new baby – the Bystronic Byjet Classic 4022 waterjet cutting system. The latest addition to the family joins twin Trumpf laser cutting machines to give Unicorn the edge when it comes to the precision engineering of metal parts and components. We think this makes us an uncle.

In all seriousness, the Bystronic Byjet waterjet cutting system is a tremendous piece of a kit and a true feat of engineering. The Classic 4022 is able to cut through sheet metal of over 100mm thickness by utilising a fine sprayhead that operates at up to 3600bar pressure. Waterjet technology slices through all metals including  stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper and titanium. It is the perfect tool for accurately shaping hardox and armour plating.

With an area cutting bed of 4m x 2m and dual cutting heads, when it comes to waterjet manufacturing, Unicorn Sheet Metal Works are thinking big and working twice as fast.

Waterjet cutting has many advantages over traditional metalwork techniquesincluding guillotining and drilling. It is fast, effective, works to incredibly high specifications, and through efficient CAD processing, turns out exact replica parts and components time after time. Waterjet cutting can also be a cheaper alternative to laser cutting and comes into its own when shaping reflective metals.

Unicorn Sheet Metal Works use waterjet cutting when manufacturing stainless steel components for the petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries. Waterjet cutting is employed for cutting brass plate and machine parts for shipping and offshore oil companies, and for accurately manufacturing lightweight titanium profiles for the aerospace industry.
