Slip Rings & Electric Motors for Robotics

As technology rapidly advances, robotics are being used more and more, across almost all industries and markets. Today, robotics are used for everything from undersea exploration vehicles and welding car chassis to defusing explosives and performing major surgeries.

No matter how far ranging the applications may be, one thing all robotics technology has in common is the use of electric motors and slip rings. Motors are used to drive actuators and continuously rotating joints; slip rings are required to transfer power and rotating electrical signals to actuators, joints, and other components.

Orbex is a leading provider of electrical slip rings and motors for robotics. We design, engineer, and manufacture a full line of motors and a huge array of slip rings, including miniature, through bore, high current, harsh environment, and HD video slip rings. Whatever your application, we have the solution you need. Contact us today to learn more.


Robotics Applications for Electric Slip Rings & Motors

Orbex’s slip rings and electric motors deliver superior performance and reliability for all types of robotics technology. Common applications for our products include, but are not limited to:


Medical Robotics

Our slip rings can be used to transfer power and a range of rotating electrical signals in laparoscopic and other surgical robots; our electric motors offer precision control at low speeds. Orbex products deliver consistent performance when surgeons need it most.

Oil & Gas/Mining Robotics

From drill controls to wireless pipe inspection robots, the mining and oil and gas industries utilize a broad spectrum of robotic systems. All of Orbex’s electric motors and slip rings are built with durable materials and can be IP65 sealed for harsh environments. Advanced designs and internal components provide long working life with minimal maintenance requirements.

Manipulation Systems Robotics

Robotic manipulators are used in a variety of industries, from handling semiconductor wafers to organizing and storing geological samples to maneuvering payload on space shuttle missions. Orbex’s motors are ideal for actuators and continuously rotating joints in robotic manipulators, delivering reliable, precision performance at all speeds and across all torque ranges.
