What is a Slip Ring?

A slip ring is an electromechanical device that allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure.

A slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, intermittent or continuous rotation while transmitting power and / or data. It can improve mechanical performance, simplify system operation and eliminate damage-prone wires dangling from movable joints. 


Assembled Slip Rings

Assembled slip rings are suitable for non-standard manufacturing and can be customized according to customer requirements. Reliable structure and good stability. The conductive ring is made of forged stainless steel, and the insulation materials are available in BMC phenolic resin and F-grade epoxy glass cloth laminate. Slip rings can be designed and manufactured in a single element, which is suitable for the design and manufacture of high-current and multi-channel slip rings. Widely used in wind power, cement, construction machinery and cable equipment industries.

Molded slip rings

Molded Type- suitable for slow and medium speed, power transmission up to 30 amps, and signal transmissions of all types.Designed as a range of robust high speed molded slip ring assemblies that also lend themselves to a multitude of slower and medium speed applications.

Applications include: Alternators, Slip Ring Motors, Frequency Changers, Cable Reeling Drums, Cable Bunching Machines, Rotary Display Lighting, Electro-Magnetic Clutches, Wind Generators, Packaging Machines, Rotary Welding Machines, Leisure Rides and Power and Signal Transfer Packages.

Pancake Series Slip Ring Assemblies

Pancake Slip Rings - a flat slip ring used for the transmission of signals and power transmission in applications where height is restricted.

This range of slip rings has been designed primarily for the transmission of signals, but has now been developed to accommodate power transmission also. Fine brass rings are used for signals and can be plated with silver, gold or rhodium where low contact resistance and low noise levels are required. The best results are obtained when

these precious metal surfaces are used in conjunction with silver-graphite brushes. These units are suitable for slow speed only when fitted with brass rings.
