Control assemblies from Bergen Cable Technology are built to meet the most demanding requirements, including military specifications. That’s why they are trusted in a broad range of applications, from aircraft flight control systems to exercise equipment and ATM machines. These cable assemblies are often implemented in applications where any type of cable failure could be life threatening, and routinely contribute to saving lives in many medical applications.
Medical cable assemblies
Push-pull control cable assemblies from Bergen have been used in X-ray and MRI equipment, wheelchairs and hospital beds. The company has also provided cable assemblies used in surgical equipment. In these applications, the surgeon must be able to fully concentrate on the procedure, so it is essential that there are no concerns about leaving behind foreign debris or the reliability of a surgical suture gun. To meet the space constraints for this application, Bergen engineers created miniature fittings.
Control cables for medical devices often have to fit in small spaces, and for these applications, Bergen can supply Microlin and Posilign brands of miniature control cable.
Miniature control cable
Microlin cable is available in sizes from 0.010 to 0.048 inches, with breaking strengths up to 175 pounds. This miniature cable features high flexibility, high fatigue resistance, and the ability to be routed around bulkheads or obstructions. Also available is Posilign miniature cable, which practically eliminates constructional stretch, secondary adjustment, and costly proof load testing.
Bergen Cable has the capability to offer the best manufacturing processes and the right materials to create cables to extremely tight tolerances for cable diameters and assembly lengths.
