UJ & UQJ Jointing Kit & Jointing Toolkit Supply

Piece Parts

Global Marine can provide customers with all the piece parts required to install and maintain the Universal Joint (UJ). Global Marine is a founding member of the Universal Joint Consortium (UJC), and as a result, has played a pivotal part in the development of the UJ. The team has exceptional knowledge and is able to support the global customer base and ensure that each individual requirement is met with great accuracy.

Each cable type and variant uses different piece parts when using UJ technology. These parts are supplied as ‘common’ and ‘end specific’ kits in individual, rigorously packed and protected flight cases. Complete instructions for using the parts and assembling joints are available in the UJ & UQJ Explorer Memory Card, which is published on a quarterly basis. All parts are backwards-compatible so the technology you purchase always remains current.

Tools & Equipment

Global Marine is the market leader in the development of fibre-based cable jointing technology and provides tools and equipment to customers around the globe, that are compatible with their specific Universal Joint (UJ) and Universal Quick Joint (UQJ) requirements.

There are two distinctive types of tools available standard equipment, which can be used across all joints, identified as ‘common equipment’ and bespoke equipment known as end-specific.

Common equipment for UJ & UQJ technology includes the jointing benches, presses and general toolkits.

Because the technology for preparing each cable type is different, there is an end-specific toolkit for each cable type.

The complete joint assembly will be carried out using a combination of the common tooling and the end-specific toolkits. All the toolkits are packaged in individual cases with foam cut-outs containing each tool  which both offers protection and ensure that specific groups of tools remain together.
