When creating a Bowden cable / pull-push control cable, there are extensive possibilities for variation. Your Bowden cable can be tailor-made for your application. Standard components or special components can be used for this. You can find out more about this on the page
Bowden cables are used where power transmission is required. Examples of this are e.g. brakes, gearshifts, trigger mechanisms, unlocking mechanisms. Due to the possibility of using a wide variety of rope configurations, rope diameters, materials and components, Bowden cables are used in a wide variety of areas. More about possible areas of application
The Bowden cable is attached via the swaged or die-cast cable end connection selected by the customer. Various end pieces such as ball, eyelet, thread, nipple, ... are possible. These are hung or clamped on the machine part. Excessive bending and chafing of the rope should be avoided during installation. You can read about the respective advantages of the rope end connections here. Bowden cables are supplied by us ready for installation according to the requirements of our customers.
Push-Pull Bowden cable is a term used for a Bowden cable that can transmit both tensile forces and compressive forces. The name comes from the way the Bowden cable works.
