Many of the custom wire rope assemblies we produce at Lexco Cable are trusted in safety applications. The aircraft cable shown here is a tether that is included in a miner safety kit, used to harness up to six people during emergency evacuations and is coated in a bright color for added visibility. To create the tethers, the high strength cable was coated, cut to length, swaged, and assembled to the hook.
The length of the assembly and swage dimensions were measured during the first article inspection and submitted to the customer for approval. Inspections were also performed during the production process and after final assembly to ensure all safety tethers complied to the customer supplied specifications.
We can provide a very quick turnaround, one week in this case, and are adept at working with tight customer schedules. For additional details regarding this custom safety wire rope project, see the table below, or contact us directly.
