TRB selected as key supplier for Elekta

TRB Lightweight Structures has been selected by Elekta as one of its top twenty suppliers. The company will manufacture a lightweight flooring solution, which will be used in the rooms, or bunkers, that accommodate Elekta’s Unity MR-linac. The specialty flooring can withstand excessive weight distribution and is hinged to allow access to different parts of the machine, the company explains.

A leader in precision radiation medicine, Elekta is committed to ensuring everyone in the world with cancer has access to – and benefits from – more precise, personalised radiotherapy treatments. Elekta’s latest innovation, Elekta Unity, is the world’s first high-field MR-linac and has the potential to transform how clinicians treat cancer, according to the company.

“We are absolutely delighted to be working with such an innovative and forward-thinking company and are proud that Elekta identified our lightweight composite products as a real asset to the manufacturing of its products,” commented Andrew Snow, Technical Sales Manager (Industrial) of TRB Lightweight Structures.

“We have previously worked with the company as a supplier for their Gamma Knife radiosurgery system, and to now be selected as a supplier for their Unity MR-linac is excellent. TRB recently attended a supplier day at Elekta’s new UK headquarters in Crawley; it is a most impressive and futuristic building, and the company is clearly investing heavily in its future. We are very proud to be supporting Elekta on this journey.”

TRB designs and engineers lightweight structures for customers in the rail, aerospace and industrial markets worldwide. Its goal is to make vehicles and structures more efficient and to reduce fuel use. TRB works closely with customers to provide end-to-end design, engineering and production solutions.
