Torsion Bars

We have an extensive capability to manufacture a wide range of torsion bars including high strength bars for specialist applications.

Our innovative Extralite™ torsion bar upgrade for the Warrior & CVR(T) Defence vehicles met an urgent operational requirement for the Ministry of Defence. The Extralite™ torsion bar helped achieve a significant improvement in suspension performance, and the Tinsley Bridge contribution was widely recognised by UK Government ministers, the MOD and in industry innovation awards. The steel is unique steel to Tinsley Bridge and Extralite™ components increase durability and can operate at higher vehicle loads.

Development and testing of the Extralite™ torsion bars was completed in less than five months; a time frame which included extensive field trials conducted by the British Army. The vehicle now features improved cross-country mobility, ride and handling to work at its best in challenging off road terrain, and the extra ride height achieved by Extralite™ also improves crew protection from mine blast.
