Good things come to those who wait: After various long-term tests at testing facilities and in field trials, Fortatech has brought an extensive product ranges of Push-Pull Bowden Cables for motor control for shipbuilding to the market.
Thanks to the sophisticated materials, the ropes are highly flexible, smooth-running and rust-proof. In addition, the Push-Pull Bowden Cables also feature high force transmission and make switching operations significantly easier. The Push-Pull Bowden Cables are suitable for applications on boat exteriors and interiors. Wherever long paths or tight radii from the control station to the motor need to be overcome, the Push-Pull Bowden Cables from Fortatech decisively influence switching operations thanks to significantly less friction. The inner liner is a strand made of multiple wires, making it much more flexible than conventional ropes with a rigid wire.
In addition, the inner liner is covered with a plastic sheating that results in even less friction with the outer hull. Fortatech also offers customer-specific solutions between 5 – 26 ft alongside cost-effective standard products. The products are primarily sold via intermediaries and service partners for the shipping and shipyard industries. Market expansion is supported by flanking marketing measures, which include an animated video launched for trade-fair appearances and showrooms. This video demonstrates the benefits of the Push-Pull Bowden Cables and segment-specific sales documents.
