The creative minds of the team at Loughborough University are progressing well with the task of applying their thinking to make Trans-Rak vehicle racking systems even better and so we decided to introduce them to you.
Aron Pye, Becky Grant, David Sharpe, David Wellbeloved and Max Coleman are from a mix of different degree courses including Product Design Engineering, Innovative Manufacturing Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering and all hail from the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering School at Loughborough: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/mechman/
Heading up the team is Leila Sheldrick, Lecturer in Product Design Engineering who has a particular involvement in the sustainability aspect of the project – the benefits of metal racking versus traditional wood - examples of dedicated sustainability research projects previously undertaken can be found here: http://www.centreforsmart.co.uk/
The next stage of the project is to hold a group brainstorming session to come up with design improvement ideas to point the way to how Trans-Rak vehicle racking systems will look in the near future.
The Trans-Rak team awaits the results with a great degree of anticipation.
