Some of Bergen Cable's best design engineering ideas are never seen by the end-users — and with good reason. The company’s Bertrol brand push-pull controls are the “hidden” solutions in many critical automobile, medical and aerospace applications.
For example, these components help automobile seats adjust, car windows open and close, or control speeds on the highway. In medical applications, they have helped save lives through their use in surgical and endoscopic devices, as well as X-ray and MRI equipment. Patient recovery has been promoted through their installation inside wheelchairs and hospital beds.
Bergen’s push-pull controls have also had a positive impact on human health through their use in physical fitness equipment such as incline adjustments on treadmills and recreation by way of trim, steering and throttle controls for personal watercraft. In addition, the push-pull assemblies have taken to the skies to provide comfort in reclining, and safety and reliability in ejection aircraft seats.
Bertrol assemblies are designed for positive, precise transmission of mechanical motion. There are two types of Bertrol control assemblies — Push-Pull and Pull-Pull. Push-Pull is when motion is applied in one direction by compression, and in the opposite direction by tension. Pull-Pull is when motion is applied by tension and the control is returned to its original position by spring actuation.
