CABLECRAFT

Aerospace

Cablecraft motion control products and aircraft cable assemblies are integral to the safety and convenience of today’s modern aviation aircraft. Used in both primary and redundant applications, our products are used in flight control systems as well as in-cabin products for commercial, military and general aviation including light sport aircraft. Working directly with OEM aircraft manufacturers and tier one integrators, Cablecraft’s engineering team has provided solutions for flight controls, seat releases, in-service equipment and countless other products which meet or exceed all quality standards and performance specifications. For safety related products, Cablecraft has in-house testing capabilities to ensure design integrity for a lifetime of performance.

Motion Control Cables

Motion Control cables are widely used in the Aerospace industry for controlling motion in a non-linear path. These cables range from light duty use, less than 25 load requirements, to heavy duty use with loads as high as 3,000 lbs. Our engineers will design a motion control cable based on your specific application, whether you require industry leading efficiencies, high compressive strength or flexibility for difficult routing instructions.

Pull-Pull Cables – Used for applications when only transmission forces are required, often utilizing a spring to return to the original position after activation.

Push-Pull Cables – A cable that transmits movement in both directions constructed with a cable or wire with robust column strength such as a solid wire, a wire rope with a single wire at its center like a 1x7 or a reinforced wire rope such as Armor Core.

Performax®

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 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.

Safety/Restraint Cables

Many commercial users and original equipment manufacturers utilize our line of bared cable and PlastiCable. These cables are combined with a variety of standard components to meet specific requirements for high-quality mechanical cable assemblies.

Cycle-Flex™ Miniature Cables

Cycle-Flex™ by Cablecraft is the recognized leader in miniature mechanical cable technology for its durability and long life in high cycle applications. Its versatility for product applications ranging from motion control to safety/restraint has made it the preferred choice by design engineers where size and durability matter. Cycle-Flex™ is offered in a variety of constructions and in diameters as small .15 mm and can either be coated or uncoated, lubricated or un-lubricated.

Linkages

Cablecraft offers a wide range of linkage products and assemblies including rod ends, ball and swivel joints and spherical bearings. Linkage products are often used when a direct robust solid connection is needed. Linkages offer minimal lost motion from your input source to the output and can often transmit higher loads safely at comparable sizes.

Actuation Products

Cablecraft offers the widest selection of aircraft cable assembly products available for a multitude of actuation requirements. Utilizing our light duty pull-pull cables, often paired with our release mechanisms, these systems offer lightweight, reliable and cost-effective solutions for remote actuation of latches, release and locking gas springs.
