Bergen Cable is trusted by companies in many major international industries, and one of the most important is aviation. Strength, reliability, and precision are of vital importance when it comes to aircraft cable in the aerospace sector, in which human lives depend on the machinery keeping them in the air.
From aircraft flight control to the securing of fasteners in airplane engines, Bergen Cable offers cable and assembly products for a wide range of aviation applications.
Strength, flexibility, and fatigue resistance
As experts in aircraft control cable, Bergen’s staff understand the need for extreme reliability in its products, as failure would have catastrophic consequences in aerospace applications. The company’s line of control cable is lightweight, strong, and flexible enough for aircraft control, as well as fatigue-resistant.
Bergen manufactures two types of light-duty control-cable systems: push-pull, which applies motion by compression in one direction and by tension in the opposite way; and pull-pull, in which motion is applied by tension and spring actuation returns the control to its original position.
Another Bergen product that is widely used in the aerospace sector is Lock Clad cable. Also used primarily for aircraft control, this aircraft cable has an aluminum tube swaged over it that meets the strict military specification MIL-DTL-87218. It is designed with many advantages, such as dampened vibration, lower creep stretch, high thermal expansion coefficient, and a surface that provides better seals through pressure walls.
Bergen is one of only two companies in the world that the United States government has approved to manufacture and distribute Lock Clad cable, which is further evidence of the high trust that authorities place in the company
A third type of aircraft cable that Bergen provides for the aviation industry is its own brand of safety cable. This is a product that the company’s engineers created in 1987 in collaboration with General Electric’s Aircraft Engine Group, with the aim of inventing an alternative to lock wire for securing loose fasteners. Today, many clients note the significant advantages that Bergen safety cable has over lock wire, including improved safety, efficiency, and access to difficult areas.
