Torvec obtains patent for system

Torvec Inc. has been awarded a patent for its modular track suspension system, the cornerstone of the company’s Fast Tracked Vehicle.
The suspension system can be substituted for the undercarriage of any full-size automobile that is built with a load-carrying frame. The patent covers 13 claims of individual technology advances.
“The Torvec undercarriage is modular, so we can inexpensively bolt it onto a truck frame,” said Keith Gleasman, Torvec’s president. “This feature keeps manufacturing costs very low, in turn allowing us to price the FTV very competitively with four-wheel drive trucks.”
Gleasman also said the company has confidentiality agreements with approximately two dozen automotive companies, and is working with them to commercialize the FTV, the company’s pump and motor assembly, and its constant velocity joints.
