The Differences & Benefits of Swaged vs. Shuttled Molded Conduit Fittings
Cable assemblies consist of two main components: a cable, the tightly wounded bundles of wire, and a conduit, the protective tubing or sleeve that surrounds the cable. Many applications require a conduit to preserve the integrity of the wire …
Understanding Cable Bend Radius To Prevent Damage
Mechanical cables require an understanding of how bend radius can influence cable integrity, fatigue, and service life. Estimating the bend radius of a cable before installation will help establish parameters for optimal performance.
The bend radius determines how tight a cable can be bent …
Considering Design Factors of Lost Motion
Mechanical control cables provide a simple, lightweight, economical, and reliable way to activate throttles, latches, gas springs, electromechanical devices, and many other mechanisms.
The basic design of mechanical control cables features a movable core that’s free to travel axially inside a conduit. Actuating a lever …
