Elliott Equipment, a manufacturer of cranes and related machinery, has been using slip rings from United Equipment Accessories (UEA) in its equipment for 23 years.
When UEA started designing and manufacturing hydraulic swivels—a complementary part to the slip ring—in 2012, Elliott Equipment wanted to know more.
When slip rings and hydraulic swivels are specified separately, equipment is at higher risk for failure and requires added assembly and more maintenance.
