  • The Right Cable for the Job

    When I think of push pull cables, I think of our old push lawn mower and the time my mom tried to do the yard work. Our mower was ancient at this point and something was wrong with the cable. My brothers and sister and I fought for space at the kitchen window to watch the sorry scene. We could see Mom getting more and more frustrated, bending and pulling over and over, trying to start the motor. Without realizing it, she had been backing closer and closer to our...

  • Push or Pull?

    We always here that opposites attract, and in the case of push and pull, they definitely come hand in hand. A push pull wire cable is a very important form of control in the wire rope industry. These products are designed specifically to provide a system with mechanical motion that is both precise and positive transmission. The other option, and counterpart to the push pull cables are the pull pull cables. But while pull pull models are only able to provide single directional control, push pull cables are able to...

  • Push Pull Cable Manufacturers

    Push pull cable assemblies are used to provide the mechanical motion in various systems. The issue with many assemblies is that they are what is referred to as pull pull assemblies, and are only able to go in one direction, while these models offer multidirectional motion. Some applications in which these models are often seen include seat releases in cars, throttle controls or airplane wing flaps. Then of course, we have the dreaded push lawn mowers Which always somehow manage to give me an unbelievable amount of difficulty There simply...

Industry Information

Push Pull Cable

Push pull cables and controls are a particular type of control cable designed for the positive and precise transmission of mechanical motion within a given system. Unlike their counterpart pull-pull cables, these wire rope assemblies offer multidirectional control. Additionally, their flexibility allows for easy routing, making them popular in a number of industrial and commercial applications.

The action push pull cables provide makes them useful as replacements in hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical control systems for such varied industries as aerospace, marine, electrical, manufacturing, oil and gas, automation and more. Common applications for these control units range from automotive seat releases, throttle controls and even airplane wing flaps. Some controls are obvious and visible as in standard push lawn mowers, while others are concealed by surrounding equipment as well as protective casings or sheaths. Whether hidden or exposed, wire fittings and terminals are commonly added to one or both ends of the cables for easy attachment and connection points. Eyes, clamps, slips, forks and pins are often hardwired into the end point for security, though tool kits are sometimes available and allow greater versatility of a given push-pull component. Completed assemblies offer a reliable means of motion transmission between two fixed points or points which change their positions relative to one another.

In addition to possible casing, push-pull cables have three basic components. The most basic elements are known as filaments. These are cold drawn rods of metal that are relatively small in diameter. Two or more of these units twisted or braided together compose a group of wires known as a strand, the second major component. Finally, these strands are wrapped in a helical pattern around the core. Though the core may be made of fibrous materials or woven components, solid metal or rubber cores are preferable for pushing applications as they offer greater stability and force. In a push-pull system, compression moves the cables in one direction while tension pulls it in the opposing direction allowing for bidirectional mechanical actuation. To best achieve this, cable specifications such as length, maximum push and pull loads, thickness, number of bends, housing and materials should all be carefully considered with regards for the intended use of the control cable. Together the conduit and core selection, number of bends in the system and relative friction between the core and conduit determine the efficiency of control. To suit the many applications needed, there are numerous combinations of styles and constructions available for push-pull cable assemblies.
