ENGINEERING firm MetLase has become the newest member of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.

The Rotherham company — a joint venture by Rolls-Royce and Unipart — has doubled in size since it was formed in 2015.

It will develop smart tools which use sensors to collect data while being used in order to improve performance.

MetLase managing director Steve Dunn said: “We are pleased to join the AMRC, which has a global reputation as a centre of excellence for manufacturing research and innovative engineering.”
