While Aurora Bearing Company's initial product offerings in 1971 were geared toward the commercial/industrial marketplace, by the middle of the 1980's Aurora Bearing's total quality reputation was recognized by the aircraft airframe industry and Aurora Bearing Company was solicited by the most prestigious airframe manufacturers to build products for them to their specifications. This prompted the decision to seriously enter the aircraft market and by 1988 Aurora Bearing Company was soliciting aircraft business on a controlled basis only, in order to insure consistent customer satisfaction. These efforts resulted in a smooth and successful entry into the aircraft marketplace.
Today, Aurora Bearing Company now produces standard and special spherical bearings, rod ends, and bushings for aircraft manufacturers, their subcontractors, and approved aerospace distributors.
Aircraft bearings and rod ends not requiring military approval, but manufactured under the same quality and SPC systems as the military approved bearings. Many of the bearings and rod ends have been approved to individual customer specifications and or standards. Dimensions and configurations follow established industry conventions. Total traceability is maintained through manufacturing up to and including shipping.
Rod ends in this section are used by the general aviation, experimental, ultra light aircraft industries, and in non-critical applications by commercial aircraft manufacturers. These rod ends are manufactured employing strict quality requirements. Total traceability is maintained on all parts except where noted.
