Rotary feedthrough

May 20, 2013
The DDF-I rotary feedthrough, with integrated bus technology, can be used for connecting mechatronic gripper modules, valves, or sensors that are downstream from a rotary axis. Up to 26 electric signals are transmitted simultaneously, 13 of which are for the actuation of valves. Air and vacuum are supplied to the actuators through a fluid feedthrough and slip-ring contacts supply the tool with power, even at high speeds.

The DDF-I‘s center bore allows the feedthrough of cables, liquids, workpieces, or the use of a camera. Continuous rotary movements are also possible.
