Trans-Pacific Aerospace Company, Inc. Bearings Pass 25,000 Cycle Testing

Trans-Pacific Aerospace Company, Inc. (OTCBB: TPAC) announced today that spherical bearings from its China subsidiary have passed independent testing under SAE Aerospace Standard 81820 for 25,000 cycles at a 10,400 lb. load at ambient temperature.

"Verifying 25,000 cycle internal liner wear at ambient temperature is an essential benchmark for us and for qualification under SAE-AS81820," said Bill McKay, Trans-Pacific Aerospace CEO. “We still have a number of tests to do at high and low temperature and with contaminants, but it is good to get the first test under our belts.”

Bearings made by Godfrey (China) Limited, the company’s 25%-owned subsidiary, will be submitted to the U.S. Navy for official qualification testing shortly. Should the bearings pass U.S. Navy qualification testing, the China facility will become the first approved manufacturer of SAE-AS81820 bearings in China.

McKay added: “This is a good start and we are hopeful that the remainder of the tests will be successful and that the Navy will have similar performance results in their testing.”

The Trans-Pacific Aerospace manufacturing and quality control team, in China from the U.S., has successfully qualified over 3,000 different types of bearings for both SAE and FAA commercial aircraft approval.
