Electrical Slip Ring In The Application of Robotics

The rotating joint of robot has complicated structure and inconvenient installation, but we could adopt electrical slip ring to realize 360 degree with unlimited rotations freely in the robot, which through slip ring to transmit power and signal.

Robot is a kind of machine device that perform working automatically, its task to assist or replace human's work. Compared with human beings, robot could be more flexible and efficient at some extent. In this modern society, labor cost has been increased year by year, we believe that robot will plays a very important role no matter from our daily life or manufacturing in the near future.


The rotating joint of robot has complicated structure and inconvenient installation, but we could adopt electrical slip ring to realize 360 degree with unlimited rotations freely in the robot, which through slip ring to transmit power and signal. The circuits for robotic slip ring can be up to 300 rings which could transfer Ethernet, USB, encoder, thermocouple signal and so on. At the same time, robot slip ring normally has the main feature of low working speed, maintenance free, longer life time,etc, that could solve the problem of stranded wire in the robot device.

According to different application environment, robot slip ring could be divided into two categories which namely industrial robot slip ring and special special robot slip ring. The industrial robot slip ring is exactly to face robot in the industrial application, but special robot slip ring is used for the various advanced robotics in manufacturing and serves to human beings. Including service robot, underwater robot, entertainment robot, military robot, agricultural robots,etc.

Barlin Times could customize special robotic slip ring for you as per your specific requirements. If you did not find suitable product to meet your demand, please feel free to contact with us, our sales engineer will keep in touch with you timely to solve all of your problems.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
