LORD Corporation–a leader in the management of vibration, noise and motion control – is now certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for Tension Torsion (TT) straps. The certification allows LORD to sell EASA-certified STC parts direct and through authorized distributors in Europe.
“LORD is very pleased to offer TT straps directly to the European market, providing our customers in multiple countries the opportunity to enjoy all the savings associated with buying direct, while avoiding the risks and uncertainties that often come with STC parts,” said Rodolphe Leroy, manager of global sales, business development and marketing, LORD Corporation. “In addition to unrivaled design and manufacturing experience, LORD customers worldwide benefit from the fact that LORD is the STC 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.”
An aerospace innovator, LORD has manufactured TT straps for more than thirty-five years. LORD Tension Torsion straps are in service on more than 20 different aircraft models. The TT strap, which attaches a helicopter’s rotor blade to the hub, allows blade feathering while reacting to the centrifugal load and accommodates the resultant flapping of the blades.
Available for the Bell 206B JetRanger and Bell 206L LongRanger aircraft, TT straps have a three year or 1,200 hour calendar life. The straps are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
