Hartford Technologies high quality standards has allowed our products to be used in military equipment such as tanks, weaponry, missile guidance systems, protective wear and a multitude of other defense industry applications.
Many parts that are used in defense industry applications and aerospace or military applications need to meet requirements demanded by the federal government.
These requirements are defined by the DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement). The specific section that is often cited is DFARS 252.225-7000 Buy American – Balance of Payments Program Certificate.
With respect to Hartford Technologies precision balls, pins, rollers and custom bearing assemblies, customers frequently request compliance to either DFARS 252.225-7009 Restriction on Acquisition of Certain Articles Containing Specialty Metals or DFARS 252.225-7016 Restriction on Acquisition of Ball and Roller Bearings. Sometimes, certain parts may be considered commercially available off-the-shelf products (termed “COTS items”), which then allow more flexibility in origin.
Hartford Technologies works closely with our defense industry customers to understand their needs to offer the best value and solution for each inquiry.
