Belden Universal announces 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 Defense (AS&D) industries. It combines quality standards for both European and US aerospace manufacturing.
Belden’s newly formalized AS9100 qualification is scarce among universal joint manufacturers. Belden initially sought the certification to meet the requirements of UTC Aerospace Systems, one of the world’s largest suppliers of advanced aerospace and defense products, who was looking for a vendor for high-quality universal 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.
