Fastener Retention Perfected
Safety Cable was developed in 1987 by Bergen Cable Technology in conjunction with GE Aircraft Engines. Since that time, Bergen Safety Cable has been adopted by most aerospace OEMs and MRO facilities worldwide. Tests on engines at GE Aircraft Engine facilities demonstrated that the use of Safety Cable resulted in a 50 percent reduction in installation time with consistently superior quality and lower assembly costs. Bergen Safety Cable is the safest, most cost effective, easiest to install fastener retention system available.
Safety Cable Tool
Bergen Cable offers tools for .022, .032 and .040-diameter safety cable. Our Safety Cable tools are available with 3”, 5” and 7” nose lengths. All safety cable tools come standard with 360' rotating noses which allow for ease of use when operating in a non-standard position. Our safety cable tools ship calibrated and ready for immediate use.
Our safety cable comes in lengths ranging from 9” to 24” and in various materials such as 304 stainless steel, 321 stainless steel, Inconel 600 for high temperature and/or non-magnetic applications, and Inconel 625 for superior corrosion resistance. Self-looping cables are available for applications where holes do not exist in a fastener and filler washers are available for fasteners with oversized lock wire holes. See our Safety Cable brochure below for further details and part numbers.
Safety Cable ferrules come in a spring-loaded magazine with 50 ferrules. Our ferrules are offered in the same materials and diameters as our safety cable. In addition to standard ferrules, we also offer elongated ferrules which allow for proper retention of fasteners with limited clearance.
