An end user of several industrial stretch wrapper machines had an existing 24 and 32-circuit slip ring assembly that needed two additional air passages. The original equipment manufacturer of the current slip ring did not have a solution that satisfied the customer’s needs. At United Equipment Accessories (UEA), we design and build custom slip rings based on our customer’s needs. Whether one slip ring or a thousand slip rings, we strive to get a design that works for our customers and their needs.

As shown in the design image, the new 24-circuit and 32-circuit electrical slip rings utilize UEA’s 1.50-inch bore assembly slip ring. This slip ring with mounting tube assembly was designed to be mounted upright on top of the industrial stretch wrapper. The slip rings have a variety of circuits ranging from 7.5-Amp signal circuits to 25-Amp power circuits. UEA’s comprehensive circuit options allow for easy adaptability to meet our customer’s specifications. The two-passage air swivel is part of a brass air swivel line that UEA has been manufacturing for decades. UEA offers several options for brass air swivels, including a four-port air swivel that can also be used in this style of slip ring. For customers requiring a single air channel, one of the brass ports can be plugged, or a single channel aluminum air swivel can be used.

The slip ring is in our 1.50-inch bore slip ring series and comprises an aluminum base casting and a spun aluminum cover. On top of the cover, an air swivel retention bracket is added to adapt the air swivel to the slip ring easily.
