Wire Rope Assemblies
We can supply a wide range of wire rope assemblies. Drawing on our many years of experience, we can help determine the appropriate assembly design for your needs. We will take into consideration the required flexibility, material types, working load, breaking strength, safety factors, and more. Bergen Cable Technology, Inc has been a designer and manufacturer of cable and assemblies for almost 75 years. We have earned a reputation for excellence due to our experienced professionals, top-of-the-line equipment, carefully honed manufacturing techniques, and stringent quality assurance.
Wire rope assemblies
The terms “cable” and “wire rope” are often used interchangeably, but generally wire rope is defined by diameters larger than 3/8”. Our wire rope is available in several construction types with various numbers of wires in a strand. These different types offer varying degrees of flexing and resistance to abrasion. For example, our 1 x 7 constructions are the basic strand type and provide the least stretch, while our 7 x 19 constructions are the strongest and most flexible.
We offer wire rope in several materials to meet various requirements for strength and resistance to abrasion and corrosion. We can offer stainless steel types including 302, 304, 305, 316, and 321. These various steels each offer their own advantages such as corrosion resistance, strength, and non-magnetic properties. Our carbon steel galvanized wire ropes are used when strength is essential and corrosion is less of a concern. However, our carbon steel products are coated with zinc to provide some protection from corrosion. Carbon steel also offers a lower cost than stainless steel.

Wire rope assembly manufacturing
We have experience meeting demanding requirements for the most critical applications including aircraft controls. Unlike many manufacturers who list their commercial cables as “aircraft grade”, we can offer products manufactured to military requirements of MIL-DTL-83420. These assemblies are subject to rigorous performance tests and offer superior resistance to fatigue.
Wire rope assembly expertise
Since 1942, our vision has been to manufacture wire rope and cable products of the highest quality. We have experience serving industries including transportation, aerospace, defense, and medical. We can offer a wide variety of custom cable and mechanical cable assemblies.
