Bergen Cable sets itself apart from other wire rope and cable assembly companies with its in-house capabilities for precision machining. The company uses a combination of the latest CNC machining technology and more conventional machining methods to produce top quality products.
Using these technologies, Bergen Cable can produce custom cable fittings and hardware to meet any need. In addition, by handling machining in-house, the company is able to minimize costs, improve lead times, and maintain a high level of quality at every stage of assembly manufacturing.
Precision machining equipment
Bergen Cable uses a variety of machining equipment to manufacture custom end fittings, as well as stand-alone machined components. The company’s capabilities include:
- CNC Swiss Screw Machining using five-axis machines that are capable of producing components ranging from miniature sizes up to 20 millimetres in diameter. These machines are ideal for making components of small diameters and complicated shapes while ensuring tight tolerances. Bergen Cable’s CNC screw machines are used to handle all sizes of projects.
- CNC turning using lathes that are capable of high volume and continuous production thanks to bar feeders that can feed materials non-stop. The company's CNC turning lathes also feature parts catchers and chip conveyors that help minimize downtime and enable continuous production.
- CNC milling using super-speed vertical milling centers. These machines are typically used for secondary operations on parts that were produced on lathes or screw machines. In addition, they are sometimes used to produce milled products.
Bergen Cable can supply a broad selection of wire rope and cable products. Some examples include Safety Cable, lockclad cables, control cables, miniature cables and custom cable assemblies. Cable assemblies can include all types of end fittings and hardware, such as eyelets, hooks, shackles, stop sleeves, button stops, ball fittings and more.
