Quick connections [CANSEC17D1]

31 May 2017

Battlefield International Inc (Booth 1207) of Cayuga, Ontario, designs and manufactures aerospace fuel systems and quick-connects, and mechanical, custom and lightweight components.

Yet the company is best known for its EnduroLink fuel coupler, which is now the world standard for unmanned vehicle integration.

Its EnduroLink quick connect couplings include non-locking, dripless and twist-lock versions. Other quick-connect products are lightweight, low pressure, dry break and high pressure, stainless, dry break couplings and oil line couplers. Among many other products are control linkages, multifuel check valves, fuel pumping systems, and quick exhaust valves. After securing multiple contracts in 2016, Battlefield International has responded to the increased demand for fluid system products by purchasing five robust computerised numerical control (CNC) milling machines, which will ensure that the company can maintain its rapid R&D and prototype programme, while balancing production needs.

The acquisition has also enabled the production of lightweight, full-flow fluid quick disconnects in larger sizes through to 4in (100mm) nominal flow diameter, to meet widespread market interest in larger body sizes. Earlier this year, the company announced that it has been nominated by Insitu as official manufacturer and supplier of its EnduroLink UAV products for use on the latest ScanEagle N20 propulsion system.
