Kaman Specialty Bearings (Kaman) a division of Kaman Corporation (NASDAQ-GS:KAMN) and Armick announced today that they have signed an exclusive teaming agreement to develop and market Armick's Radial Axial Bearing Inspection Tool (RABIT). RABIT is an exceptional, patented inspection gage to measure spherical bearing wear during quality inspections and overhauls. The RABIT tool is light and nimble, fitting into the hand of the inspector and can be deployed "on wing" without complete part removal, or also on the bench during repair and overall. Other uses include initial quality inspection and parts validation.

"We're excited about this collaboration and believe this partnership will bring to market an innovative tool for bearing inspection in many applications including control rods, dampening bearings, and pitch links and in a variety of aerospace markets including commercial and military helicopters, fixed wing aircraft, and MRO's," commented Rob Paterson, Kaman President.

Kaman develops and markets a variety of self-lubricating and airframe bearings and related products for the aerospace, marine, power generation, and industrial markets. Kaman's bearings are on virtually every aircraft manufactured around the world. Its engineered products lead the industry in performance and life with benefits including high load capacity, low friction, weight reduction and zero maintenance.

"After developing the RABIT we knew we had to look to reach a broader customer base with this new inspection tool. Kaman Specialty Bearings has a reputation for high quality bearings and we wanted to partner with a market leader. We are very excited about the opportunity to work with Kaman Specialty Bearings," commented Nick Jacques, Armick VP of Sales.

Under the agreement, Kamatics will develop applications and market RABIT gages throughout the military and commercial aerospace industry.
