Overview

A slip ring is an electromechanical device that allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure.  BGB slip rings can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, intermittent or continuous rotation while transmitting power and / or data. Slip rings can improve mechanical performance, simplify system operation and eliminate damage-prone wires dangling from movable joints.  Also called rotary electrical interfaces, rotating electrical connectors, collectors, swivels, or electrical rotary joints, slip rings are found in a variety of industries.
 

Applications

Our design engineers are highly experienced in designing rotary solutions for a variety of industries.  Slip rings can be found in all sorts of applications where there is a requirement for rotation.  Our slip rings can be found in all sorts of equipment sectors from wastewater scraper bridges to wind turbines, packaging machines, radars, fairground rides, revolving doors, and generators through to more niche and unusual requests such as film sets and music festivals.  
 

Variations

There are various types of standard and custom slip rings that lends themselves to a multitude of application speeds. 
Barrel - The most common type, robust high-speed slip ring assemblies for a multitude of slower and medium speed applications.
Modular - suitable for slow and medium speed, power transmission up to 30 amps, and signal transmissions of all types.
Pancake or Flat - used for the transmission of signals and power transmission in applications where height is restricted.
Fabricated / Cast & Built-Up - used for the re-building, re-insulating and repairing of slip ring units and carbon brushes.
Capsule - Miniature slip rings used for applications where space is limited.
