BERLIN, June 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Belden Universal, a leading global manufacturer of custom cardan (universal) joints and highly specialised mechanical power transmission products announces today that it has achieved AS9100C aerospace quality certification.
The AS9100C certification, issued by SAE International, is the highest of global standards for quality assurance in the Aircraft, Space and Defence (AS&D) industries. It combines quality standards for both European and US aerospace manufacturing.
Belden's newly formalised AS9100 qualification is scarce among cardan joint manufacturers and makes Belden a top contender for delivering power transmission products for scores of aerospace applications; including aircraft high-lift actuation, control and steering mechanisms, flap opening and others.
"Belden is thrilled to have earned this certification. We consider it a major stepping stone to increasing our market share in the aerospace industry that is forecasted for strong growth over the next decade," says Perry Sainati, President of Belden Universal.
Belden initially sought the certification to meet the requirements of UTC Aerospace Systems, one of the world's largest suppliers of advanced aerospace and defence products, which was looking for a vendor for high-quality cardan joints for its high-lift actuation systems.
Belden Universal joints have been key components of major military, commercial, and private aircraft assemblies. Customers include Boeing, Bombardier, Airbus, UTC Aerospace Systems, Moog, Cessna, the U.S. Department of Defense; and distributors such as Aircraft Spruce, Wencor, Swift and KLX Aerospace.
