Direction Cable Assembly

The Challenge

A customer requested that Lexco® Cable manufacture directional cable that would be used to provide a guide to evacuation routes in a mining application.

The Solution

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 with customer specifications.

The Results

Our ability to provide custom wire rope cable with a myriad of end connections and coatings allowed us to complete this custom project in only one week. A thin-walled PVC coating was applied to the high-strength aircraft wire rope cable for added visibility in dark and debris-filled evacuation conditions.
