In response to demands for longer, uninterrupted service life, DEUBLIN Company manufactures a complete line of electrical slip ring systems.
Slip rings are used in many industrial applications such as wind turbines, tooling machines, plastic molding machines, propulsion centrifuges, winding machines, milling machines, directional drilling machines, handling machines, pick-and-place machines, turntables, and robotics.
DEUBLIN slip rings are optimized with special material configurations that are tested and proven for hundreds of millions of cycles, which translates into many years of trouble-free operation with unsurpassed performance, significantly reducing down-time and maintenance costs.
DEUBLIN electrical slip rings feature flexible engineering to support unique requirements and allow for easy replacement of existing slip ring brands by the end user. DEUBLIN designs slip rings to a variety of EMI, operating temperatures, storage temperatures, acceleration, mechanical vibration, and mechanical shock requirements as required by the customer application. DEUBLIN rotary union and slip ring combinations have a unique plug-and-play configuration to reduce installation and maintenance time.
Other DEUBLIN design innovations include the development of slip rings that meet requirements such as RF shielding, mixed signal handling, high frequency impedance matching, reduced temperature generation, and miniaturization.
A slip ring is an electrical device that allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure. Also called a rotary electrical joint, collector or electric swivel, a slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, intermittent or continuous rotation while transmitting power and/or data. Typically, it is compromised of a graphite or metal contact brush which rubs on the outside diameter of a rotating metal ring. As the slip ring turns, the electrical current or signal is conducted through the stationary brush to the metal ring making the connection.
