igus is launching the TwisterBand energy chain for power, data and other media that need to be guided safely through rotary motions in small spaces. TwisterBand guides and manages cable rotations in very confined spaces, in a cost-effective way and with very little wear.
The new igus TwisterBand permits rotary movements of up to +/-1500 degrees with speeds of up to 380deg/s possible. Being a compact and lightweight modular system, the TwisterBand requires minimal space for installation. There is no guide required for this system, it is easy to fill, and it can be used either horizontally or vertically.
Highly versatile, the TwisterBand is suitable for use in a number of different types of application – including leisure rides, aerospace, wind turbines and robots.
