Bergen Cable Technology’s push-pull control assemblies are used for critical applications in many different markets, from automotive and aerospace to medical. These cable assemblies can provide positive and precise motion transmission for medium- to heavy-duty applications. They are designed to minimize friction and maximize wear resistance. This means they offer the reliability that’s needed or applications where any form of cable failure would be catastrophic.
Bergen Cable Technology has extensive experience supplying cable assemblies for critical aerospace applications. For instance, the company’s push-pull assemblies are used for aircraft throttle control, choke, fuel shutoff, engine stop, ejection seats and power-take-off control. Cables used for these applications have to pass rigorous fatigue resistance testing. Due to the reliability these assemblies provide, they are also used for many non-aircraft applications.
Another market where these cable assemblies play a critical role and help save lives is in medical applications. For instance, push-pull controls are used in surgical and endoscopic devices. In these applications, surgeons have to be able to fully concentrate on the surgical procedure, so there cannot be any concerns about the reliability of a suture gun or the possibility of leaving foreign debris behind.
Another example is in X-ray and MRI equipment. Cable failure in this equipment is a critical human safety factor and liability issue. That’s why the world’s leading medical device manufacturers trust Bergen’s solutions. Bergen Cable was able to draw on its experience with Military Specification cable to develop solutions for these requirements.
