Ricardo-Designed Ultra-Lightweight Driveline System
A systems approach to product design for mass optimization is key to this driveline lightweighting project involving multiple industry leaders. "The Ricardo contribution to the ULTRAN project has demonstrated the very significant opportunities for driveline lightweighting that can be realized when a systems approach to product design for mass optimization, is applied by our highly experienced and creative engineers."

Stiff Duties Expected on Driveline Components from China and Canada
The Department of Commerce and International Trade Commission suspect driveline components exported from China and Canada to the US are sold at prices below fair market value or are being subsidized by a foreign "authority". However, a new anti-dumping or countervailing duty rule could change that. Preliminary findings of investigations by the Department of Commerce into subsidies and dumping allegations indicate that duties could soon be imposed on iron castings from these two countries.
