An international lithium mining and processing company was having trouble getting their newly redesigned lithium casting machine on-line. The standard electrical slip ring that had passed thermocouple signals to the machine no longer fit into the extremely restricted opening of the new design. What’s more, the new slip ring had to include a junction box for the thermocouple connections and be tough enough to operate in a 400° environment.
After conducting an exhaustive search, the company was unable to find a standard slip ring that would fit their demanding specifications. Finally, they called Rotary Systems for help. When presenting their extremely limited spatial constraints they asked, “Can you design something that will fit this space?” Drawing on over 30 years combined experience in electrical slip rings, the Rotary Systems team needed only 8 weeks to design and build a custom slip ring that exactly fit the customer’s unique specifications – and they were able to deliver it at the right price. The new slip ring even included
a the required thermocouple junction box and still fit perfectly within the extremely restricted space.
If you need a slip ring of a specific length, a specific ID to mount over a shaft, or an OD to fit inside of an existing housing, Rotary Systems can help.
