328 Support Services GmbH (328SSG) is globally recognised as the TC holder of the Dornier 328 aircraft, and that allows us to continuously support a fleet of more than 180 aircraft worldwide. But we can do much more than that! As an EASA Part 21J Design Organisation (Category 1A), a part 21G Production Organisation (C1, C2 and D1 rating) and a part 145 Maintenance Organisation, we offer a broad spectrum of services to the aviation industry that allow us to produce anything regardless of the scope of work.

In this article, we are going to bring a closer focus on full capability around any flight- or engine control cable production requirements, regardless of your idea, project or design requirement. Here at 328SSG, we can provide a full turn-key solution through the production, testing and delivery of certified harnesses in accordance with EASA Part 21G requirements.

Control cables are commonly used by most manufacturing industries where the cables play a key role in being the interface between the control centre and various tangible mechanisms within a machine. These cables are needed everywhere and can be found in every single airplane, boat, car or even in the most basic device used by everyone such as bicycles for instance. Surprisingly flexible yet extremely strong, theses cables are to ensure the proper operation of a machine while offering the highest level of safety for operators and passengers.

At 328 SSG, we can fully manufacture and assemble any control cable of up to ¼” (0,365inch) diameter in size. We can proceed to all required tests and certification of each control cable according to the approved design documentation on any project for any industry.

An elongation of the steel cables can also be performed if requested with possibilities to go up to 18 Meter with bail or 9 Meter without bail. Test capabilities of up to 50kN tensile testing with test protocol and metallographic inspection including the issue of applicable certification documentation.

Our extensive experience acquired over the years through the support of our global customer base taught us high flexibility and consistency, which allows our team to always meet the highest-quality standards on every single project. Our experienced and highly skilled team can assist you in the planning and development, as well as providing advice on any projects that require production of cable systems.
