Manufacturing 4.0: The Ground Level Perspective

It reminds me a little of the old “Summer of Love” in the Haight-Ashbury section of San Francisco when I was a kid, or maybe the grunge music scene in Seattle in the early 90s; two hot, trendy and uber-newsworthy movements that, by the time the academics had gotten around to naming them, by the time the media had begun covering them, and by the time they’d wormed their way into mainstream consciousness, those at their epicenter had long-since moved on to the next big thing.

Precisely what you need for mission-critical applications

Our universal joints (also called cardan joints) and drive shafts are designed to deliver against the most stringent specifications and withstand the harshest operational environments.
 

Military Standard Universal Joints

  • Belden one of few certified MS2027x, QPL listed universal joint manufacturers
  • Extensive range of tests in government approved labs
  • Products meet or exceed MIL-DTL-6193 specifications
  • When measured against stringent quality controls, MS products can be deployed in aerospace applications
