Tinsley Bridge with partners Performance Engineering Solutions PES and AMRC Composites Centre will be competing against other ground-breaking projects for a prestigious national engineering innovation award.
Russell Crow, Tinsley Bridge Engineering and Development Director, describes how the long-term partnership with the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Center has grown in 20 years, how this is moving the business forward and how this is accelerating product innovation.
Tinsley Bridge have teamed up with The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Engineering Leadership Academy (SELA) in an innovation project. Digital technology was introduced to reduce energy use during the manufacture of automotive suspension components, and to help deliver a green economy for the Sheffield City Region.
A highly complex project to manufacture a set of large machined fabrications has just been completed by Tinsley Bridge. The work has taken more than 12 months and is the company's first major project for the high-end Nuclear engineering market.
The first components have been manufactured at Tinsley Bridge for the All England Lawn Tennis Club’s new retractable roof. The massive fabrications will form the roof hinge assembly in a contract for SCX, the Sheffield firm who built the existing Centre Court retractable roof. The No.1 Court roof is due to be installed in time for The Championships in 2019.
The 2016 Northern Auto Alliance (NAA) Awards were held in Manchester, this year. The awards showcase excellence and advances in vehicle manufacture and supply chain logistics, in the region. Over 270 member organisations were represented at the dinner and the keynote speaker was Lawrence Davies MBE, CEO of the Automotive Investment Organisation (AIO).
Tinsley Bridge has joined forces with Performance Engineered Solutions (PES) and the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) to develop a revolutionary high performance composite metal hybrid stabiliser bar for trucks and trains.
