Modern packaging machinery has many moving assemblies that are driven by electrical motors or require slip rings to transfer electrical signals to a continuously rotating portion of the machine.
Orbex HT series high pole servo motors have extremely high torque and are suited for common applications like auger feeders and labeling heads. More cost effective than other servos, they also provide greatly improved low-speed torque output, allowing designers to specify smaller frame size motors and still achieve improved cycle times.
Machines like vertical fold, fill and seal machines require the transfer of high current to a rotary seal bar. Orbex 600 series high current slip rings have a suitable current capacity to transfer power while having the long working life required for high throughput operations. These attributes make them well suited for any machines using rotary seal bars. Their mercury-free designs also make them RoHS compliant.
Orbex 500 series through hole slip rings lend themselves to the rotary table type applications that are often used in bottling machinery, and any other application which requires a large through-hole and a high signal count. 500 series slip rings are also available with IP65 sealing for use in harsh environments.
