Rotary movements in minimal space
To achieve rotary movements in the smallest spaces, while guiding power, data and media safely, complicated and expensive rotary solutions are usually needed.
However, with compact rotating TwisterBand, rotations can now be guided and managed in very confined spaces cost-effectively and with very little wear:
- Rotary movements up to ± 1500° - Rotary speeds up to 380°/s possible - Compact, modular and lightweight - Ribbons can be shorten easily - Minimal installation space needed - Can be reliably used in horizontal or vertical installation positions - Cost-effective - No guide required - Easily fillable - Used inconjunction with Chainflex® continuous-flex cables for small bending radii, this is the problem solver for rotary movements in very limited spaces.
Industries:robots (robot arms, 1/6 axis), Theme park rides, medical equipment, radar and telescope equipment, aerospace, test, measurement, handling, lifting and installation equipment, wind turbines (e.g. blade adjustment) - and more.
