As industrial production
becomes ever more automated, robotic systems are becoming more common,
especially in such areas as automobile assembly, welding, painting
and also computerised placement of components on PCB's.
Such robotic systems
frequently employ 360° rotation on the azimuth axis, in addition
to 'shoulder', 'elbow' and 'wrist' movements on the actuators. These
'limited turn' movements require sliprings when 'shortest way back'
techniques are applied.
The use of state
of the art slipring technology ensures maximum operational flexibility
and utilisation of the machine or system, whilst maintaining maximum
