Belden Military Standard Universal Joint - Meets and Exceeds Military Specification MIL-J-6193
Broadview (Chicago), Illinois, July 2006. Belden Inc.'s complete line of universal joints and shaft assemblies include a full range of military certified universal joints used in auto racing/gear change linkage, military personnel carriers and aerospace applications. These universal joints are specifically designed and precisely manufactured for a variety of applications including high lift actuation and control mechanisms for aircraft where low deflection rates, high strength to weight ratios and long service life are essential.
The heavy-duty MS 271 military standard universal joints have undergone qualification and acceptance testing by a testing lab and the U.S. Department of Defense. The MS joints meet or exceed the requirements of military specification MIL-J-6193. To qualify the universal joints, a variety of extensive and rigorous testing was completed.
