We can offer products from the following manufacturers.
Barden precision aerospace bearings
Custom designed and manufactured aerospace bearings are a cornerstone of the Barden product line. Aerospace bearings are specifically designed according to application requirements, and our engineering staff is often involved early in the development stages of aerospace equipment.
Barden bearings are utilised in pneumatic and electric starters and generators, gearboxes, main engines, and a variety of auxiliary aircraft positions including gyros. Bearing configurations range from standard deep groove bearings to intricate split inner ring designs.
Barden can supply a range of full complement bearings that capitalise on the space usually occupied by the ball retainer. Applications vary from high temperature valves to missile fin support, some designs meet Mil Specs.
Barden can offer many bearing types ranging from conventional bearings with modified dimensions to intricate configurations designed to meet unusual performance or application problems.
Kamatics self-lubricating bearings and helicopter drive shafts
Kamatics manufactures high-performance mechanical products used in aviation, these products are primarily self-lubricated bearings for aircraft flight controls, turbine engines, and landing gear, and KAflex® driveline couplings for helicopters.
KAron® and KAtherm® systems are qualified to demanding military specifications (SAE AS81820, SAE AS81934, MIL-B-8943 and SAE AS81819). KAron® and KAtherm® are homogeneous self-lubricating liner systems incorporating PTFE particles in polyester thermosetting resin-based materials, which can be tailored to meet specific performance requirements.
The unique KAron® and KAtherm® bearing systems offer an innovative alternative to traditional lubricated/self lubricated bearings, providing superior performance and life cycle benefits.
The KAflex® driveshaft is a mechanical drive coupling which requires no lubrication or seals, and transmits power while accommodating high angular misalignment and length change through the use of flexible rectangular frames.
Greene, Tweed high-performance seals and thermoplastic components
Greene, Tweed’s seals and thermoplastic components are found worldwide in the most demanding high-performance civil and military platforms. In fact, 90 percent of the world’s commercial and military aircraft depend on Greene, Tweed components.
Because of our design expertise, Greene Tweed customizes solutions that leverage our extensive applications experience and knowledge of elastomers and thermoplastics. In the air or on the ground, absolute sealing integrity and component performance is essential.
