Bergen Cable is one of two companies worldwide that the United States government has approved for distribution of Lock Clad aircraft cables. These specialized cables are used primarily for aircraft control in the aerospace industry. As a leader in the cable sector with a top reputation, having supplied cable solutions across North America for close to eight decades, Bergen counts this government approval as another distinguishing trait that sets it above the competition.
Aluminum tubing that stops abrasion
A high level of fatigue resistance is one of the advantages that makes Lock Clad cable so different. Bergen Cable does not sell this aerospace cable until after it has undergone rigorous fatigue-resistance tests. Lock Clad aircraft cables are produced by swaging aluminum alloy tubing onto galvanized or stainless aircraft cable that complies with the stringent standards of MIL-DTL-83420, which is a strict, exacting military specification that was designed to meet the needs of businesses in the aerospace industry.
Lock Clad cable was developed to eliminate all the sagging that frequently occurs with long lengths of cable and to prevent wear and tear. This cable product has aluminum tubing that stops abrasion of the outer wires, which often happens when users drag assemblies through bulkheads and other obstructions on aircraft. Even though Lock Clad cable is intended specifically for aerospace needs, companies in other sectors also use it for many applications.
There are many unique benefits in using Bergen’s Lock Clad aircraft cables. They offer a substantial reduction in stretch and a significant decrease in “singing”, or cable vibration. The fine cylindrical surface allows users to seal the cable before passing it through pressurized bulkheads, and it also has a higher coefficient of thermal expansion. Lock Clad cable assemblies are made to meet the high safety and precision standards of aerospace applications; these require strength, flexibility, and durability, which make these cables more than suitable for other uses.
Its status as a rare source of Lock Clad cable is one more reason to trust in Bergen – along with innovation, quality, technical expertise, and top customer service.
