The igus twisterband range has further extended its reach by providing compact horizontal rotations of up to 7000 degrees, which is nearly 20 full-turns, and vertical rotations of 3000 degrees. At speeds of up to 180deg/sec, that is 30 full-turns in a minute. Made from lightweight, yet tough, advanced engineering polymers, twisterband HD features a strong pinned connection between each of its links for a longer service life.
The links are easy to open and quick to fill – power, data and media, such as air and fluid, are guided securely in one system, which is not possible when using a traditional slip-ring. twisterband is available in five standard sizes from 120mm to 300mm diameter, and the twisterband HD version is available in four standard sizes with diameters from 120mm to 420mm.
