Bergen Cable Technology is a leading provider of wire rope and mechanical cable assemblies. The company can offer everything from aircraft control cable assemblies to standard lanyard cables. To make the ordering process easy, the Bergen website provides a cable assembly requirements request form. Using the form, customers can specify their requirements for cable construction, materials, fittings and more.
A variety of cable constructions are available that offer different degrees of flexibility. The different cable constructions consist of varying numbers of wires and strands. For instance, a 1×7 construction has one strand made up of seven wires. This is the stiffest construction available. On the other end of the spectrum is a 7×19 construction that provides the most flexibility and the highest strength.
Bergen Cable Technology can supply either military specification or commercial assemblies. All of the company's military specification cables meet MIL-DTL-83420 requirements. These cables and assemblies are most often used for aircraft control applications. They are also used for commercial and industrial applications that require a reliable, strong and lightweight solution.
The request form also allows customers to specify the cable material. Bergen Cable Technology offers several materials to meet requirements for strength, abrasion and corrosion resistance. They include stainless steel and galvanized carbon steel. Stainless steel type 302 is the most commonly used material due to its corrosion resistance and high strength. Galvanized carbon steel offers cost savings and is often used in applications that do not require the corrosion resistance of stainless steel. However, the wires in these cables are zinc-coated to provide a good measure of protection.
Customers can also use the form to specify the fitting types required. A range of fittings are available, including military and commercial grades. The variety of commercial fittings includes eye, plain ball, plug, sleeve, threaded-end and Ber-Lok.
Bergen Cable Technology can also make custom or special cable layouts to suit customer specifications. The company has earned a reputation for excellence by providing products made by experienced professionals, using the best equipment, and backed by stringent quality assurance processes.
