Curtis quality at substantial savings

Your OEM application may be more suitable for a moderate to low torque joint in our block and pin style or high torque in the cross and bearing design made by one of our Asian affiliates. Manufactured to our exacting quality standards, these universal joints are often substantially lower priced than a domestically produced universal joint.

We Eliminate the Hassle and Risk

Buying a foreign sourced universal joint, designed and manufactured to your precise specifications and delivered on time isn’t easy.

Curtis has over 15 years’ experience sourcing universal joints from Asia. We have strong, well established working relationships with our Asian affiliates and work closely with them to assure that our customers have the same positive experience that they have become accustomed to working with Curtis domestically.

No need to worry about identifying and qualifying universal joint manufacturers, sorting through import regulations, and coordinating designs, manufacturing requirements, and schedules across a dozen time zones. We do all of that for you.

Traditional Curtis Universal Joint Quality

We audit our Asian affiliates to assure that their quality control systems meet our exacting standards. We provide them a quality plan and functional gauges for both in process and final inspection for each individual universal joint that they produce. And upon receipt of the final product at our facility we perform a final acceptance inspection in accordance with MIL-STD-105.

Delivered to Your Door on Time

Lead times on foreign sourced universal joints can be a problem for companies with tight or changing production schedules. To offset this, we hold an inventory of foreign sourced parts at our plant to meet your production requirements. And if necessary, we hold a safety stock to cover unanticipated spikes in your demand.

Rest assured that when you buy a Curtis universal joint made overseas, you will enjoy the same level of service, quality and attention to detail as if it was made at our Springfield MA facility.
