Wire Rope and Aircraft Cable

cable2.gif

Commercial quality "aircraft grade" cable is made from galvanized steel wire or stainless steel wire. Galvanized aircraft cable provides high tensile strength and adequate corrosion resistance for most commercial applications. Stainless steel cable provides slightly lower tensile strength, but greater resistance to corrosion.

Cable or wire rope is fabricated from individual wires put together in a uniform helical arrangement to form what is called a strand. A strand typically contains 7 wires (1 x 7) or 19 wires (1 x 19), although others are available. Cable or wire rope contains a varying number of these strands such as 7 x 7 and 7 x 19 (number of strands x wire per strand). The more strands and more wires per strand, the more flexible the cable and the higher the cost. The greater the cable diameter, the greater the diameter of each wire and the greater the breaking strength.

VER Sales manufacture a complete line of jacketed cable to meet your specific needs. We are certified as a QPL vendor for government and military agencies. Our quality control manual adheres to MIL-STD-105D specifications as well as MIL-I-45208A inspection systems requirements and MIL-STD-45662 calibration standards. We manufacture cable assemblies using Small Cord to the current MIL-DTL-83420 specifications, as well as cable assemblies using premium grade commercial quality aircraft cable.

VER Sales can also custom coat cable and wire rope in nylon or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). We extrude cables in safety yellow, florescent orange, red, black, white and green.
