Conjuntos de cables Lock-Clad

Lock-clad cable is manufactured by swaging an aluminum tubing over a 7×7 or 7×19 galvanized or stainless steel cable. Originally developed for aircraft control applications, lock-clad has found additional industrial applications where the following properties are advantageous:

  • Stretched is reduced substantially
  • Sag is virtually eliminated
  • A smooth cylindrical surface finish allows lock-clad to be sealed when routed through pressurized bulkheads

Lock-clad cable is supplied almost exclusively as a complete assembly with swaged fittings attached to fit the customer’s needs. Since lock-clad cable is supplied rigid, the swaged on aluminum cladding can be removed at any point, for any distance, if necessary to pass over a pulley or perform a flexible action between two rigid sections. Loos y Compañía is an approved manufacturer for the QPL specification MIL-DTL-87218.
