Contact UsAt Lexco Cable, our ability to customize products with specialized features and coatings significantly increases the versatility of the wire rope cabling we offer. The cable shown here is used to provide a guide to evacuation routes in a mining application. A thin-walled PVC coating is applied to the high strength aircraft wire rope cable for added visibility in dark and debris-filled evacuation conditions.

For this assembly, the cable was cut to the specified length, spooled onto special reels, coated, and swaged to create the mechanical end connections. The length of the assembly and dimensions of the swaged components were measured as part of the first article inspection process. In-process and final inspections were also performed to verify assemblies were compliant to customer specifications. Our ability to provide custom wire rope cable with a myriad of end connections and coatings allows us to create durable assemblies for a wide range of customers. For additional details regarding this custom cabling assembly, see the table below,  or contact us directly.
