Hybrid Composite-Metal Anti-Roll Bar Technology June 17 2019

2019 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, June 17, 2019

Engineers at Performance Engineered Solutions (PES) Ltd are working on the project, co-funded by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, with Tinsley Bridge Ltd, and the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC). The AMRC’s Composite Centre produced the anti-roll bar prototypes using its MF Tech filament winding system.

The project is investigating the development and manufacture of lighter composite materials as an alternative to traditional metal anti-roll bars.

The previous Innovate UK funded project achieved a significant 65% reduction in the weight of the stabilizer bar by replacing the current solid steel component with a carbon fiber composite member. The new stabilizer bar design achieved this weight reduction without compromising performance, and offered improved durability, given that the carbon composite materials are less affected by fatigue.

The new project will further develop and refine the design of the anti-roll bars and undertake a wide variety of laboratory testing to simulate the conditions that the anti-roll bars will face during their service life.
