Bell 206 Tension Torsion Straps Now Available Directly From LORD Corporation
( 11/02/2015 )
LORD Corporation - the industry leader in the design and manufacture of Tension Torsion (TT) straps - is now selling FAA certified PMA parts direct and through authorized distributors.
As the trusted source for TT straps for more than three decades, LORD fully understands the critical operating requirements for the TT strap, which attaches the rotor blade to the hub, allowing blade feathering while reacting to the centrifugal load.
"Experience matters, especially with flight-critical components like TT straps," said Todd Haughee, Product and Program Manager for LORD Corporation's Aftermarket Business. "Over the past 35-plus years, LORD has designed TT straps for more than 20 different aircraft applications and has manufactured more than 300,000 straps. This experience, coupled with ongoing investment in manufacturing facilities and equipment, gives our customers confidence in the quality and reliability of our product."
Haughee also noted that, in addition to unrivaled design and manufacturing experience, LORD customers benefit from the fact that LORD is the PMA holder, designer and manufacturer of the TT strap the corporation supplies. "This clear path of accountability is vital when considering a supplier for any aerospace component, especially flight-critical parts," he said.
"LORD is pleased to offer the TT straps directly to the market, providing our customers the opportunity to enjoy all the savings, while avoiding the risks and uncertainties that often come with PMA parts," said Rodolphe Leroy, Manager, Global Sales, Business Development & Marketing, LORD Corporation. "This is only the beginning, as LORD is continuing to invest in this product line and additional high value offerings are on the horizon."
LORD TT straps have a three-year calendar life and are in stock and available for immediate delivery to customers around the world.
