TwisterBand

...7000°* rotate...
TwisterBand

Standard delivery includes the base plates, which are a component of the twisterband module!

 

TwisterBand: Compact, modular, economical

1. Base plate with strain relief
2. TwisterBand segment
3. Available in 4 sizes
4. Partly available with interior separation
5. Limited length compensation possible
6. Snap-open with integrated hinges or snap-open with "easy" design
7. Base plate with strain relief
 
Rotary movements in minimum space - 20 times on its own axisWith the very compact igus® TwisterBand, rotations can be implemented economically, with low wear and low maintenance in a confined space and therefore reliably guide energy, data and media.

Available in 5 dimensions

7,000°* and more horizontal rotary motion, and up to 3,000° in the vertical installation orientation

Rotary speeds up to 360°/s are conceivable

Compact, modular and lightweight

Bands can be shortened easily

Minimum installation space - very lean installation around the rotating axis

Can be reliably used in various installation orientations (horizontal or vertical)

Low-cost

Easily filled

Ideal in combination with igus® chainflex® cables for rotary motions in very limited installation spaces

Industries:
Cable reels, Machine tools, Robots (robot arms, 1/6 axis, scara robots), Leisure rides, medical equipment, radar and telescope equipment, aerospace, test, measurement, handling, lifting and installation equipment, wind turbines (e.g. blade adjustment); wherever rotary unions are used

 
 

Integrable hinge: Simple access and quick filling with cables and hoses (TB20.44.18, TB30)

 

Maximum angle of rotation as a rule of thumb: Hinge for each 180° = 360° more rotation

 

An axis is to be centrally installed for angles of rotation from 1500° rotating and horizontal

 
TwisterBand

Minimum installation space

 
TwisterBand

Compact, modular and cost effective- horizontal: 7,000° and more possible, vertical up to 3000° rotary movement in the smallest space

 
TwisterBand

Usable in various installation orientations: shown here: horizontal 7,000°* and more rotary motion in confined spaces. Limited length compensation possible

 
When to use twisterband:

Circular motions up to a total of 7,000° (Vertical installation orientation: up to 3,000°, horizontal: 7,000° and more possible)

Realizable in the smallest space

Rotary speeds up to 180°/s are conceivable

Available in 5 dimensions

Partially available with interior separation (depends on Series)

Very easy to fill, with snap-open integral hinges or "easy" design system (according to the series)

Limited length compensation possible

When should I take a different series?

For higher fill weights System twisterchain®

For 3D movements triflex® R

RBR versions for even higher fill weights

When a self-lubricating- and maintenance-free slewing ring bearing is required for "endless" rotary motions
iglide® slewing ring bearing

When you need shielded cables. Please consult igus®
