The Bloodhound Project Innoval Technology

Innoval Technology

About the company

Innoval Technology is an independent company providing high quality consultancy and technical support to investors, manufacturers and end-users of aluminium across a broad range of industry sectors. Our clients are rolling, extrusion, forging and finishing companies, and their suppliers and customers, throughout the world.

Our core team of 26 people provides expertise in a wide range of technical disciplines. Their practical experience is varied, with most people having worked on rolling and finishing processes, as well as automotive, aerospace, building and packaging products.

What we are doing for the project

We’re using our expertise in aluminium to help the BLOODHOUND engineering team decide which alloy to manufacture the car’s wheels from. The discussions have been focusing on AA2014 or AA7075 and whether either can be derived from secondary sources. Both the BLOODHOUND team and Geoff Scamans (Innoval Technology’s aluminium recycling 'guru') are keen to incorporate as much recycled material into the car as possible.

Once the alloy has been decided upon, we will advise the team on possible manufacturing routes and sources of supply.

How and why we got involved

Everyone at Innoval Technology is passionate about inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers. We also believe the BLOODHOUND project provides a powerful means of showcasing the technical capabilities of aluminium, which could be the material of choice for a host of parts from the car's wheels to its body panels. For these reasons, we have offered our world-class aluminium expertise to the BLOODHOUND engineering team as a Product Sponsor.
