Bergen Cable has spent decades supplying world-class cable products across North America. These cable solutions are especially important in the aerospace sector. This is an industry in which human lives rely on the machinery around them working correctly, so aviation cables require strength, reliability, and precision.
Applications for Bergen aviation cables and assemblies range from flight control to the securing of fasteners in airplane engines.
Lightweight, strong, and flexible
Failure in aerospace cable products could lead to catastrophic consequences, so Bergen Cable knows that extreme reliability and perfect performance are a must in aviation cables. As experts in aircraft control cable, the Bergen team makes products that are lightweight, strong, flexible, and fatigue-resistance – all essential traits in aircraft-control applications.
The company makes two models of light-duty control-cable systems. Push-pull systems apply motion by compression in one direction and by tension in the opposite way, while pull-pull systems apply motion by tension and spring actuation returns the control to the initial position.
Bergen’s line of Lock Clad cables are another product commonly used in the aerospace industry, primarily for aircraft control. Lock Clad cables have aluminum tubes swaged over them that meet the strict military specification MIL-DTL-87218, and their advantages include dampened vibration, lower creep stretch, high thermal expansion coefficient, and a surface that offers superior seals through pressure walls. Bergen Cable has the rare distinction of being one of only two companies around the world that have received approval from the United States government to produce and supply Lock Clad cables. This provides ample proof of the high trust that authorities place in this company.
Another design of airplane cable that Bergen supplies for the aerospace sector is its own line of Safety Cable. The company’s engineering team collaborated with General Electric’s Aircraft Engine Group to develop this product in 1987, with the goal of creating an alternative to lock wire for securing loose fasteners. Safety Cable offers such advantages as higher safety, efficiency, and access to difficult areas.
For top cable products, Bergen is the only name that aerospace companies need to trust.
