How They Work

A slip ring is a rotary coupling used to transfer electric current from a stationary unit to a rotating unit. This is accomplished by either:

  • Holding the center core stationary while the brushes and housing rotate around it.
  • Holding the brushes and housing stationary while the center core is allowed to rotate

    Turning to a Better Answer

    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.
