Shaped wire for push-pull control mechanisms, custom cable assemblies and aerospace emergency controls

Push Pull Control Cables

Push Pull Control Cables

Modern aircraft require dependable, high quality wire connection systems that play a crucial role in flight control performance to ensure safe transport of passengers and goods. Our high tolerance shaped wire is engineered for the production of push-pull mechanisms and custom cable assemblies used to deliver remote activation of aerospace controls. The shaped wire is used by manufacturers of these devices to build a bearing controlled linkage for applications requiring high tension and compression forces and tight radii for the wire cable assembly.
Products
We deliver custom wire shapes, custom alloys and precise sizes tailored to your specific push-pull control cable aircraft application.
  • Alloys: Aluminum, carbon steel, copper, nickel alloy, nickel iron, resistance alloy, stainless steel, and other alloys such as nickel, iron and cobalt.
  • Sizes: Super fine wire engineered from 0.004" (0.1016 mm) up to 0.250" (6.35 mm).
Advantages
AMETEK SMP offers an array of high quality wire connection solutions that deliver proven benefits for manufacturers of aerospace push pull control cables.
  • Tight tolerances in the fabrication of simple and complex wire shapes for superior dimensional control
  • Improved die wear, formability and platability
  • Suitable for a variety of motion control applications throughout the aerospace industry
Applications
Finished push pull cable assemblies use our shaped materials to build an inner ball-bearing controlled race between two outer races (also shaped by AMETEK SMP) and fully enclosed in high strength protective sheathing. These products are used in both the Aerospace and Marine industries as push pull control cables for throttle, fuel shutoffs, landing gear and emergency controls.
