MetLase is a joint venture between Rolls-Royce and Unipart. We are a mechanical engineering consultancy whose technology-based approach and patented tooling techniques allow us to design and manufacture bespoke engineering solutions with speed and precision. 

Using precise laser-cutting methodology and press-brake material forming, MetLase can swiftly design and produce simple and complex toolingfixturing and components, that are up to 10 times more accurate than using additive layer manufacturing, and typically at one third of the cost.

Why MetLase?

MetLase has the unique ability to apply patented techniques, honed in the demanding aerospace industry, to a vast range of problems across all manufacturing sectors, and all parts of the value chain, and to do so with amazing speed and precision. We combine excellence in mechanical engineering, innovation and ingenuity to deliver a valuable new service for British manufacturing.

We can reduce lead times from more than three months to less than one week.

Our work has been measured as repeatable to within 20 microns.

From research to aftermarket service, MetLase can help your business at any stage in the production cycle.

Our agility delivers value to your business right away

We can design and manufacture iterations within hours to accelerate product and process development.

Our engineers develop simple, practical solutions to your problems.

Our tools, techniques and solutions can be utilised in any manufacturing sector.
