BLOODHOUND SSC Sponsorship

Bloodhound is NOT a land speed record attempt. It IS an engineering adventure designed to inspire the next generation of engineers. That is the legacy the project hopes to leave behind, and the reason Atlas Copco Tools are involved. Breaking the 1,000mph mark , and securing a new land speed record would also be nice!

The hub nuts on Bloodhound are tightened to 800Nm. With such a critical component, the implications for the car would be catastrophic if this part was tightened to the wrong torque, that is why the Bloodhound engineers use the STWrench for the job.

Why are we involved?
Why are we involved?
“Industry 4.0” is coming, as a result we need more engineers. When NASA launched the Apollo space program & landed man on the moon, the number of American students taking STEM based degrees at universities sky rocketed. The Bloodhound project is to be the UK's Apollo program, inspiring the next generation of engineers.
