The Performax® line of push-pull cable solutions offer application driven performance to optimize any project. Using Cablecraft’s proprietary designs, we have developed a line of control cables that will save development time and costs while improving performance. Whether your application demands high compressive strength, maximum efficiency or increased flexibility, the Performax® line of control cables can be engineered to your application requirements. With state-of-the-art cable manufacturing facilities and equipment and stringent, in-process controls, you can be assured your Performax® control cable will perform for years to come.
Not sure which Performax® control cable is right for your application? Use the descriptions below and then talk with the Cablecraft Engineering team. They can help you design the right cable to meet your application requirements.
Not all motion is in a straight line. Control cables are designed to transmit motion in a non-linear path, but the typical control cable is limited in the number of bends and the degree of radius for each of those bends before efficiency declines. The Flexmax line of control cables feature advanced conduit design combined with flexible materials and core wire, producing superior flexibility.
Cablecraft’s efficiency series – Excelmax - is designed with optimal performance in mind. Utilizing proprietary designs combined with state-of-the-art materials, the Excelmax cables are designed to maximize tension and compression efficiencies while maintaining minimal lost motion.
Need the strength of a rod to push high loads but the flexibility of a cable? Most cables will collapse under the pressure, but not the Forcemax. The Forcemax control cable is specifically designed for high compressive loads. Utilizing long lay conduits and Armored core wire, Forcemax will get the job done.
Any of our standard cable fittings, either zinc die-cast or steel, can be combined with the Performax® line of proprietary designed cable and conduit, providing you with a high performance push-pull cable assembly with minimal development costs. Or, our Engineering team will design the fitting that mates with your components for a truly customized solution while maximizing the desired performance.
Every push-pull assembly application has unique requirements. Performax® offers a full line of conduit choices to meet your specific needs. Whether it’s flexible routing with good compressive strength or a more rigid application with good crush resistance, we have the right design for you. Our conduits include Braided, Round Wire and Flat Wire Bowden, Long Lay and reinforced Long Lay. Optional liner materials are also offered to meet your application requirements.
Like our cable fittings, Performax® offers our standard shuttle-molded, zinc die-casted or steel conduit fittings. Or our Engineering team will design the fitting that mates with your design for a truly customized solution while maximizing the desired performance.
Prototypes are available and are an invaluable way to finalize the dimensional and tolerance requirements of any assembly. Life cycle and durability testing can also be conducted on prototypes, prior to production. Contact us to request a prototype.
You can get started by using our design considerations or you can download our Motion Control Design Guide to help analyze and define your application specifications. Then contact our Engineering team to discuss the details of your project and they will help you determine the right Performax® push-pull cable for your application.
Push applications are the most difficult to accomplish with ordinary cable assemblies because of the required column strength of the wire or cable core.
