Materials

Materials and special coatings for high strength-to-weight ratio and extreme corrosive environments include precipitation hardened stainless steel, cadmium or zinc plated alloy steel, 17-4 / 15-5 PH stainless steel, aluminum, aircraft grade alloys and marine grade 316 and 316L stainless steel.

 

Digitzed Inspection Records

For easier maintenance of data, Belden transitioned to a paperless inspection system. As opposed to traditional paper records where the operator manually checks off inspection and tool requirements, the software automates, simplifies and speeds up procedures and allows all members of the production team to view live data at any time. It specifies what features to measure, the proper tools for measuring and selects inspection specifications for the various features and pieces.

 

In-House Testing

To ensure the optimal performance of parts through thousands of operation cycles, Belden custom-manufactured a state-of-the-art in-house testing machine which provides immediate feedback on performance. Belden’s setup is exceptionally efficient, with a superior test cell that benefits customers through faster delivery times and lower costs.
