engineering careers  Anti-roll bars developed by researchers

Lightweight anti-roll bars are in the process of being developed by a UK consortium. The Sheffield-based anti-roll bar specialist, Tinsley Bridge, are working with engineering company Performance Engineered Solutions and Sheffield University’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC). Innovate UK are funding the project, which hopes to develop high performance metal composite hybrid anti-roll bars for trucks and trains. In addition to cutting fuel consumption from both rail and heavy road vehicles, the bars could also improve reliability and reduce the weight of the vehicles by more than 60%.
