Bergen Cable has been a respected supplier of top cable products for decades, and great products are just one reason for its reputation. In addition, the company uses a wide selection of specialized equipment, materials, and secondary processes to give its customers the best possible cable solutions it can. From rotary swaging and crimping to precision machining and more, Bergen uses many methods to keep its products at the peak of quality.
Nine types of advanced processes
By combining a well-trained, highly skilled team with specialized machinery, Bergen Cable can process raw metals and plastics into better cable products; these materials include stainless steel, alloy steel, aluminum, brass, nylon, Teflon, and PVC. The company accomplishes this through nine types of advanced processes that it has mastered:
- Rotary swaging – This is a cold forming process in which end fittings are joined to cable or wire rope with a rotary hammer forming process. Rotary swaging enables tight tolerance, fine surface finishing, and higher breaking strength for cylindrical end fittings.
- Hydraulic and pneumatic crimping – Bergen Cable can use hydraulic and pneumatic presses to crimp end fittings, like threaded studs, oval sleeves, stop sleeves, button stops, plain balls, and eyelets.
- Pull testing – With its United testers and customized digital proof loaders, Bergen conducts pull testing on cable assemblies with a breaking strength of up to 22,500 pounds.
- Fused cut cable – Cable can be cut electrically, cleanly, quickly, and to specific lengths with multiple freestanding and tabletop Ewald flash cutters.
- Precision machining – Bergen’s in-house machining department uses three kinds of CNC machines and some conventional machines, with strict quality control and short lead times.
- Coated cable stripping – Custom-made stripping machines enable Bergen to strip coated cable or wire rope of up to 3/8 of an inch in diameter. This allows assemblies to have proper holding strength.
- Part marking – Parts can be identified with electromechanical etching, hot stamping, metal stamping, heat shrink markers, and laser marking.
- Custom packaging – Military-specification packaging for certain applications.
- Processing and finishing – Plating, heat treating, and testing in collaboration with partnering companies.
