What We Do

N.L Roper & Sons Ltd has extensive experience in precision lapping services, flat grinding and polishing. We serve a number of industries including aerospace, medical, motorsport and defence offering a competitive service to our customers with the emphasis on quality and customer care.


We can achieve many different finishes and can lap and fine grind a variety of materials.


We can give a range of surface finishes or produce a mirror finish 0.02µmRa or better, depending on the material.


Flat grinding on our continuous production machines, allows us to remove material quicker than lapping.


We offer a competitive lapping service on cylinder heads which ensures minimum stock removal.


Ropers always go that extra mile to satisfy our requirements and at a competitive price.
