Increasingly difficult demands on the functionality and safety of components and vehicles often put limits on conventional construction.
At ARC Reuter GmbH we would like to stand aside for you as a designer and developer of new modules with our long-term knowledge and experience and to design your Bowden cable safely and cost-effectively together with you.
What do we do for you?
- We accompany your project from the first idea and sketch to serial production at our partner
- We create drawings and data
- We build hand patterns and first samples
- We test Bowden cables on length, workmanship and longevity
- We manufacture the necessary serial devices suitable for the respective production
- We advise you Fachkundlich and neutral
- We work in partnership for the benefit of our customers
Ask us or arrange a consultation with us without obligation.

Insight into our Manufeacturing Technologies
Zinc die Casting Plant for the production of high-strength compounds
Zinc die Casting is one of the most commonly used methods for producing a very tight connection with wire ropes. All shapes can be easily manufactured.
Examples of some possibilities
CNC Park for the production of ropes and Bowden Cable Wraps
We manufacture turned parts for Bowden cables on the most modern CNC lathes. Our machine park comprises 3 CNC lathes.
Pressing of Wires and Bowden Cable Wraps
Examples of compressed wire ends and wraps
Solder bath for repairs and low-strength connections up to 50 kg traction.
CNC Milling machines for the production of prototypes and small series
Strength check of connections
In order to guarantee the safety of the Bowden cables, our products are regularly checked for the required strength. On request we will be happy to provide you with the values. Reference values are:
- Soldering ca. 50 kg
- Presses on rope 1.5 mm approx. 120 kg
- Zinc die casting on rope 1.5 mm larger than rope break force
Who Invented it? Ernest Monnington Bowden
Patent 14402. The figures show the application of the invention, a bicycle rim break. A hand lever a pivoted on the handlebar is formed with an arm d ‘ of the brake, by a flexible c non-stretchable wire rope and free in a flexible hose b, of tightly wrapped wire, sliding. By this arrangement pressure on the lever a causes the Members B and C to start gliding and the brake is actuated. Excerpt from the patent specification 14402 from 14.05.1898
