Two full engine sets of turbine seal strips, at lead-times previously unobtainable.
Verification that the blade profile is within the co-ordinate measuring machine probe-path envelope, using an integrated laser sensor built into the fixture.
Providing controlled argon delivery for a repeatable welding environment, for research and development applications through to full production.
A fixture developed with higher accuracy, to allow robot welding of lightweight exhaust systems, making a 47% mass-reduction possible.
Enabling accurate profile control, for in-situ machining operations.
Assembly of a cryogenically-frozen interference-fitted component to a tight angular tolerance, with selective compliance in the location-plane.
Removing manual variability, by guiding a cutter to profile composite liners, before installation into the engine.
A specialist tool that enables precision profiling of complex leading edge features on a gas turbine blade
MetLase is a joint-venture between Rolls-Royce and Unipart, which provides bespoke engineering solutions to complex problems, where precision and speed of deployment are critical.
