igus is promoting its new rotary cable management system, twisterband HD (Heavy Duty). Designed to give functional reliability for rotating applications that require mixed services, the energy supply system has been developed for transporting power, data, air or fibre optics, with high loads in small installation spaces.
twisterband HD is operational in temperatures ranging from -40degC to +80degC, making it suitable for use in both indoor and outdoor environments. The outer diameter of the energy chain is just 300mm and height starts at 250mm, which guarantees high strength yet minimal installation space requirements.
High angles of rotation are possible with horizontal rotary motions of around 7000 degrees (20 full turns) and vertical to 3000 degrees (8 full turns), due to the innovative design. The predefined minimum bend radius prevents damage to cables, while a special hinge design connects the individual segments allowing for fast assembly and cable filling.
