Compact rotation model safely guides energy, data and media

A compact rotation module (CRM) has been developed by igus, which revolves around its own axis, even in confined spaces. As with all rotary energy chain systems from igus, the CRM can be used to guide different types of media – power, signals, data, fibre optic, pneumatic or fluids – in parallel without interruption.

Inside the CRM, cables and hoses are routed together without interruption, thus eliminating the need for expensive and complex rotary unions. Rotational movements of 180° are possible, with a simple scale marking on the housing to indicated angle. The main benefit of implementing the CRM into machines is to increase reliability and minimise unscheduled downtimes.                              

The new module is delivered by igus as a complete, ready-to-install unit and is easy to assemble. It has a height of only 140mm and is 120mm wide on the outer diameter. Three different inner diameters are offered, depending on the type of cables required, though other diameters will become available.
