The Safety Cable from Bergen Cable Technology is the safest, most cost-effective, easiest to install fastener retention system available.
Developed in 1987 by Bergen Cable Technology in conjunction with GE Aircraft Engines, Safety Cable has replaced what was once one of the most troublesome, time-consuming and error-prone of all manufacturing and repair processes — lockwiring of fasteners — and replaced it with a simple two-step procedure.
It permits manufacture and repair in half the time required for lockwire, reduces rework and inspection, while eliminating installation hazards through removal of any sharp edges that can injure operators or tear protective clothing.
The system consists of Bergen Cable Technology's cable, ferrules and a patented, all-in-one tensioning, crimping and cutting tool. After a cable is threaded through the fasteners and a loose ferrule inserted, the crimping tool tensions the assembly, crimps the loose ferrule and cuts the excess cable flush to the ferrule — all in one smooth motion.
The entire system is so user friendly that entry-level technicians can learn the installation method in less than 30 minutes, and be ready to competently and efficiently secure fasteners on even the most complex, hard-to-reach components.
Today, Bergen's Safety Cable System is saving countless hours in aerospace manufacturing for companies such as General Electric Aircraft Engines, Pratt and Whitney, Rolls Royce, NASA and Boeing. It also provides international and domestic OEM and aftermarket customers in government, military, ship building, power generation, electronics, drilling systems and pipelines with a new level of safety and quality assurance, while saving both time and money.
