Cable and Strands
Strands and cables are ideal for applications requiring greater strength and flexibility than a single wire filament can achieve. These highly engineered products often utilize complex constructions or processes to enhance fatigue life, strength, flexibility, torque, stiffness and smoothness.
Strands and cables can be offered on spools, discrete lengths and fully assembled. Fort Wayne Metals manufacture strands and cables in a variety of sizes and constructions, ranging from ultra fine or miniature strands with diameters below 0.003" to cables up to 0.125" in diameter. Since tolerances vary depending on diameter, construction, swaging, or drawing.
Fort Wayne Metals manufactures medical grade multi-filament strands and cables in customized configurations for a variety of critical applications.
