Reseach & Development
CSA Group Leyland recently completed an Innovate UK project with Leyland Trucks and SAPA Profiles on the FTCC (Future Truck Chassis Concept) project.
The project is based on DAF’s popular LF-series and built by Leyland Trucks in close cooperation with both Sapa Profiles UK who worked extensively with DAF on the design and provided the aluminium extrusions whilst and CSA Group, who assisted with the validation of the truck by defining and conducting vehicle and rig based testing. The project was co-funded by the British Government’s Innovate UK. Aim was to realize an increased payload at a lower fuel consumption, resulting in reduced CO2 emissions.
The result of this project was a remarkable weight saving of no less than 500 kilograms on a 12 tonne LF truck.
