Miniature stainless steel cables are used in the following applications:
|Medical Instruments||Automotive Controls|
|Automotive Controls||Commercial Applications|
|Consumer Goods||Sporting Goods|
1×7: In a 1×7 strand, six outer wires are laid around the center wire. More flexible than the 1×3, it is often used for push-pull applications.
1×19: In a 1×19 construction, 12 outer wires are laid around a 1×7 center. This construction is even more flexible than the 1×7 and is often used in push-pull applications.
3×7: In a 3×7 cable, three 1×7 strands twisted together. In small diameters, this construction is very flexible.
7×3: In a 7×3 cable, six 1×3 strands are wrapped around a 1×3 center. This cable has many of the same properties as the 3×7 but is much smoother. 7×3 is a common construction for applications where a jacketed cable is needed.
7×7: In a 7×7 cable, six 1×7 strands are wrapped around a 1×7 center. This construction is one of the most commonly used in the construction industry. 7×7 cable is known for its flexibility and high cycle life.
7×19: In a 7×19 cable, six 1×19 strands are wrapped around a 1×19 center. 7×19 is the most flexible construction you can have in cable. Like the 7×7, it has a high cycle life but a lower breaking strength.

PVC is the most commonly used plastic for mechanical cable coatings. Reasonably priced and flexible, PVC carries excellent weatherability and UV resistance—something that degrades most plastics. Operating temperatures range from 30°F
(-35°C) to 180°F (80°C). Vinyl is supplied in a range of hardness and durometers—which create a spectrum from hard and stiff to soft and spongy. Color choices are nearly endless—from vivid brights and soft pastels to fluorescents and safety orange. Let us know what you need, and we can make it happen.
With wide-ranging flexibility and chemical/fatigue resistance, our nylon jackets can be tailored to fit your application. When you need a jacketed cable with a high cycle life, nylon is what you are looking for! Our Exerflex Pro® fitness cable and
MIL-DTL-83420 aircraft cable are clear illustrations of its longevity.
