Ruland Manufacturing to distribute standard line of Belden Universal joints
Published: 21 January 2020 - Rachael Morling
Ruland Manufacturing and Belden Universal have agreed to further cooperation by offering universal joints from Belden through Ruland’s eCommerce platform. Ruland will stock and make to order a wide variety of friction- and needle-bearing universal joints in alloy and stainless steel. The addition of universal joints gives Ruland a more complete power transmission offering to complement its existing line of zero-backlash couplings including rigid, beam, bellows, controlflex, disc, jaw, slit, and oldham couplings.
The universal joints will be available through Ruland’s eCommerce platform, giving users access to 2D and 3D CAD files, full product specifications, live chat tech support with application specialists, pricing and availability. Along with inventory on the most common sizes, Ruland will use its flexible manufacturing capabilities to make to order non-inventoried products to give Ruland and Belden customers greater than industry standard service levels.
“Ruland and Belden have jointly owned an office in Germany, PTMotion, for more than ten years. This is a natural expansion of our relationship together to provide a more expansive product range for Ruland customers,” says Bill Hewitson, President of Ruland. Nick Sainati, General Manager of Belden, comments, “Belden is excited to cooperate more closely with Ruland and have them as a distribution and remanufacturing partner for our standard universal joints.”
