WiscoLift’s division, Cable Industries, frequently receives requests to fabricate special cable assemblies, many times in “emergency” situations. Here is a recent example:
The owner of an automotive company in Waupaca, WI, had a car lift with one broken cable. This did not result in a complete failure, but the lift was not usable until the cable got replaced. The car lift manufacturer quoted a 4 week lead time – anybody in this situation would find that unacceptable.
He contacted us on a Thursday afternoon with all the necessary information – wire rope diameter and length, end stop information, and dimensions of the threaded stud. Although we had never fabricated an assembly specifically for a car lift, we were able to fabricate and load test (on our 100 ton horizontal test bed) the replacement assembly in just 2 business days. To top it off, our price was less than half of the manufacturer’s price!
The customer was so pleased with the price and fast service that he bought us lunch!
Providing our customers with quality pricing and service is what we strive for. If you need a new cable assembly, contact our Cable Industries Sales Rep at 844-947-3767 or fill out our Quote Form and we will respond to your request immediately.
