Push-Pull Controls

Shaped wire for aircraft push-pull mechanisms

AMETEK SMP produces high tolerance shaped wire for the production of push-pull mechanisms 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 cable assembly. These finished assemblies use AMETEK shaped materials to build an inner ball-bearing controlled race between two outer races (also shaped by AMETEK) and fully enclosed in high strength protective sheathing. These products are used in both the Aerospace and Marine industries as controls for throttle, fuel shutoffs, landing gear and emergency controls.
