Bergen Cable distinguishes itself in many ways, primarily as a top North American supplier of cable products for more than three-quarters of a century. One of the many aspects that set this company apart from its competitors in the cable-assembly and wire-rope fields is its capability for in-house precision machining.
In addition to traditional machining methods, Bergen Cable makes use of the most current CNC machining technology for custom cable fittings and hardware.
Quality and short lead times
With access to a versatile machine shop, Bergen Cable can produce high-quality customized solutions with short lead times and competitive pricing. The company also works with reliable vendors for plating, heat treating, painting, testing, and other secondary processes. From custom-machined end fittings to stand-alone components, Bergen can use precision machining for many purposes.
Bergen Cable offers three types of precision machining services:
- CNC Swiss screw machining. With five axis CNC screw machines at its disposal, Bergen Cable can produce a variety of components from miniature to two centimetres in diameter. This process is recommended for creating components with small diameters and complex geometry while maintaining tight tolerance. The machines can accommodate small prototype quantities and volumes exceeding 100,000.
- CNC turning. Bergen Cable can machine components up to 16 inches long and 14 inches in diameter with its CNC lathes. The bar feeders on the lathes can feed materials up to 1.75 inches in diameter continuously, resulting in nonstop high-volume production; part catchers and chip conveyors also keep production going and minimize downtime.
- CNC milling. Bergen’s machine shop also contains high-speed vertical milling centres that provide complete secondary machining operations for components that have been machined on the CNC lathes and screw machines. They are also high useful for producing stand-alone milled products.
Precision-machined components are just one of the many products available from Bergen, which also supplies numerous types of cables and cable assemblies, as well as lanyards, termination bands, and more.
