Cable heads

Our core competence has been the production of steel strands and steel ropes since 1889.

In order to refine these products, which have been driving us for decades, for use in actuation applications, we have the option of overmolding our strands and ropes with rope heads in a wide range of variants.

Independent and our own tests have shown that the combination of lubricated actuating cable and suitable sheath with plastic lining significantly improves the efficiency of power transmission in the system. Compaction of the strands increases the breaking force for the same diameter.
