Galv Aircraft Cable

7×7 & 7×19 Aircraft Cable

  • Standard for Tuf-Grip assemblies for smaller sizes such as control cable applications
  • Choose from stainless steel or galvanized carbon steel wire rope
  • Steel core, recommended for Tuf-Grip assemblies

 

These ropes are standard for Tuf-Grip assemblies for smaller sizes such as control cable applications.  Choose from two materials: stainless steel or galvanized carbon steel wire rope.  Standard utility cable and fittings are suitable for most applications. We are certified to manufacture wire rope to MIL-DTL-83420.  And, we offer standard end fittings to let you use aircraft cable as small as 1/16 inch in diameter. If you need one even smaller than that, please call us.

See charts for minimum breaking force and weight per foot. Notice all ropes have a steel core – the only one recommended for Tuf-Grip assemblies. All Tuf-Grip assemblies use a pre-formed rope construction because of its ability to maintain its integrity when inserted into the fittings before swaging occurs.
