What are Pan-Steel Stainless Steel Cable Ties?
Before we dive into the specifics of Panduit Pan-Steel stainless steel cable ties, it is important to understand what they are and how they work. Stainless Steel ties are primarily used to bundle and organize cables and wires. Pan-Steel Stainless steel cable ties are made from high-grade stainless steel, which makes them resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and extreme temperatures. They are designed to securely hold cables and wires in place without slipping or breaking, even under heavy loads.
How Are They Made?
Panduit Pan-Steel stainless steel cable ties are made from high-quality, DFARS conforming stainless steel. The manufacturing process involves a series of steps to ensure that the cable ties meet Panduit quality standards. First, the raw stainless steel in coils is visually inspected for imperfections and tested for material composition and dimensions to meet our specifications.
Next, the heads are stamped on a press and an X-ray vision is incorporated to detect any heads with missing roller balls for quality assurance. The heads are then assembled with a stainless band to produce the finished good which also includes several quality measures and performance tests so that the parts reaching our customers are free of faults. Coated stainless steel ties are either powder coated with polyester or Nylon 11 and a dedicated machine measures uniformity and thickness of the coating.
Due to Panduit’s strict quality control, less than one hundred parts per million fails.
What Makes Them Stronger?
There are several factors that contribute to the strength of Panduit Pan-Steel stainless steel cable ties. The first is the high-quality stainless steel used in their construction. Marine-grade stainless steel is known for its exceptional strength and corrosion resistance, making it an ideal choice for cable ties that will be exposed to harsh environments.
Another factor that contributes to their strength is the design of the cable ties themselves. Panduit Pan-Steel cable ties are designed with a unique low-profile head (originally patented) that ensures the highest of tensile strengths in the industry and low thread force. The unique locking mechanism ensures a tight grip that will not slip or loosen over time. Additionally, the cable ties are designed with smooth edges that prevent damage to cables and wires.
