Lexco® Cable is an industry-leading wire rope assembly manufacturer using advanced equipment to offer you top-notch cutting and cordage cutting services for your assemblies.
Cutting wire rope or bungee cord with the wrong tool can not only be challenging but, if done incorrectly, can also lead to fraying and poor performance. Our cutting and cordage cutting department provides the skills and tools your application requires to ensure a clean cut every time. When it comes to the safety and longevity of your wire rope assemblies and bungee cord assemblies, having our experts deliver the ideal cut, length, fit, and finish is always a worthwhile investment.
Our cutting and cordage cutting department has special tools to make quick work out of cutting heavy gauge wire rope, including manual and automatic cutting work cells consisting of mechanical shear cutting and electrical fuse-cutting machinery. We can accommodate low and high-volume projects for any cable we offer when it comes to wire rope cutting.
All of our cables are cut with expert craftsmanship from general-purpose cable, MIL-SPEC cable, and coated cable — including PVC (also known as “vinyl”) and nylon. After cutting we can also provide swaging, re-reeling, coiling, and additional services to help you create your wire rope assembly complete with end fittings.
Bungee cord, which is also commonly referred to as shock cord, Fibertex, or elastic cord, is comprised of a sheath of threads surrounding strands of rubber. This composition provides an elasticity that makes bungee cord ideal for certain applications and is also what makes it difficult for nonprofessionals to cut. If cut and sealed improperly, a bungee cord will fray at the ends or become a messy ball of melted rubber and coating, resulting in potentially hazardous fumes. To prevent fraying, our cutting and cordage cutting department cuts fiber rope and bungee cords with hot blades and has an additional automatic hot knife cutting capability for use with webbing to ensure your cut meets or exceeds the requirements of your assembly.
The skills, tools, and attention to detail of our trained professionals are the safest and most effective way for you to ensure that your wire rope and cordage receive an ideal cut at the correct length, so you always get the best results.
